We had to get away from Wellington after the earthquakes and bad weather but couldn't travel far with our 2 dogs, so decided on Palmerston North for a weekend. We stayed at the Pavillon for 2 nights and had a very good stay. The hosts were fantastic as was the very friendly cleaning lady (sorry - I've forgotten your names!)... More

We had a small dog with us and this is a pet friendly motel. It is a nice location because it is very close to the Esplanade and the Manawatu river so there was plenty of places to exercise the dog. The facilities were adequate and the room was well cleaned each day.

Couches (if you can call them that) were the most uncomfortable I've ever sat on. Our double room they charged extra for one child even though... More

Excellent location for easy access to Palmerston North shopping, restaurants and services. Also, in the perfect location for travellers with dogs as the Victoria Esplanade and Manawatu River tracks are within easy walking distance. The room was very tidy, well lit and spacious and the motel grounds are tidily kept. We had a bit of noise from the service station... More
