The Coachman is a favourite hotel when visiting Palmerston North. It is comfortable if slightly old fashioned. This time we found reception a bit unfriendly - two young women receptionists could not be bothered to answer when we said hello as we passed by on two occasions. The room was nice but lighting was very poor for reading when sitting...

Stayed here for one night when our camping trip was cut short due to stormy weather. Was pleasantly surprised by the $99 tariff for two adults and one child. Room was clean and well maintained, even though a little bit dated.

Good location, just outside the central square. Very attractive hotel and nicely presented. Reception staff are very helpful and professional. We had booked for two nights, but had to leave after one night. We were given a full refund for the night we couldn't stay, which I thought was excellent customer care. We had dinner and a few drinks. The...

Location was great, service was good, rooms were neat and tidy. however, and there is always a however. Room was advertised as having a King size bed but actually contained a Queen. Not a big issue you may think, however, when I queried the difference between what I paid for and what I had received the desk staff spent an...

Stayed for 5 nights in a motel/studio type which sits right in front of the swimming pool. We were very lucky to get 3 free buffet breakfast which was excellent value for money. The bathroom was very clean. Well equipped kitchen facility for our short stay. Great location with easy walking distance to supermarkets and the Plaza shopping mall. free...

We stayed for 11 nights with three kids. Happy with ample supply of fresh towels, toiletries etc. comfortable bed and clean bathroom. The hot plate is a bit old but we got it working. The freezer in the bar fridge door is missing and this makes the top compartment of the fridge to cold. Kids were happy in the pool...

Despite being a large group, the meals were fantastic. I ordered the steak - which was cooked to perfection (rare). The lamb shanks looked very impressive and generous also. The only negative would be slow to clear (perhaps not wanting to disrupt) and water could have been topped up throughout the night. Bar staff very friendly and overall feedback from...

The room was in desperate need of a makeover. It was very rum down and shabby looking. The sign say that the spa bath was out of order looked to have been there for a long while. The room was also very noisy and i could hear traffic and other guests I did not use the spa, restaurant or pool...

Arriving in a hotel after a 36 hour journey would test the patience of any traveller. Arriving here was a pleasure. First impressions last! And were then repeated ad nauseum for the week I was there. The number one priority, for me, in a hotel, is staff attitude and this hotel personnel had positivity in abundance. It is friendly, professional...
