We got off to a bad start when the manager ticked us off for not noticing the visitor's car parks and stopping in a vacant room park while we checked in and then complained because we had come in to get a room before the person who had made the block booking for us.

Motel unit large and spacious, bathroom very good size but water pressure in shower not great. Lady in office excellent and helpful. Unit extremely clean. Palmerston North is a motel that advertises that dogs are welcome. I am not a great fan of dogs so probably should have chosen another motel

Went there with 3 adults and a dog. Was impressed by the size of the room. The beds are super comfy and the staff friendly. It's located a few minutes walk (about 10) to the middle of town which is great and the local supermarket is only a 5 minute walk away.

Rude and mean lady owner, go into customer's room without permission, dog poop around the pathway, cold and old rooms, worst services, the owner asked not to turn on the heater when it was freezing at night( came to New Zealand for more than 5years, never heard this kiwi style). Worst experience in New Zealand.

This motel is very clean and tidy with basic facilities that all worked! Very basic but good value for the cheaper tariff. So pleased to have been able to have our doggy with us. For a motel where dogs can stay you would never know it. Owner was very nice and helpful. Only complaint is I hated the air freshener... More

We had a very bright, clean spacious room with enormous, very comfortable beds. The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of good hot water.There was a small clean swimming pool and a good hot tub which we enjoyed. It was in a very good location for an overnight stop, within walking distance of the town centre.
