      Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was very clean, and had character.

      The Sky tv channels weren't right, it wasn't a big deal though.

      Nice and tidy, clean, modern, nice staff

      The bed was not comfortable

    • Older travelers

      Friendly staff that responded well to our complaint with the unit initially assigned to us and offered us a better unit for the night.

      Initial unit was shabby, with things that did not work, torn window coverings. From the advertisement we were expecting something rather more upmarket. What we got was old and tired looking.On departure, it took 20 minutes (at 0830) to rouse a staff member to take our money. We left after one night and found alternative accommodation.

      Great water pressure in the shower and nice touches with decor. Some other motels in Palmerston North have free internet - but did get second voucher for free which was appreciated.

      Rooms quite small - felt cramped, no towel rail in bathroom. Internet not included.

      Quality of room, friendly and helpful staff

      Room size was very small, should have been stated as hotel room with no cooking facilities, instead was a small double en suite with fridge and microwave, no room for luggage or eating/cooking. But room quality was good and big tv. Enjoyed our stay but got much bigger and better equipped rooms at same price else where.

      It was superclean, the managers are very friendly and helpful, make you feel welcome

    • Group of friends

      Very comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen

      I don't like the security compromise of the windows being opened, and left open when you're not at the Motel. I've stayed at the Motel on 3 occassions now and each time the windows have been left open while all your personal gear is in the room.

    • Single

      The people are very nice and very accommodating.

      It was a little noisy, which isn't the fault of the owners, but a group of people were outside partying until 2AM, and it made it hard to sleep.

      Friendly service

      Very tiny room, not much space to move.

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      Clean, bedding nice, chocolates & choice of trim milk for our cup of tea.

      The people in the room next door using the outside seating area at 11.30pm a laughing up a storm with no consideration for people trying to sleep , then they were up outside our room and being loud again a 6am - makes it a bit hard to have a nice shopping trip when you are sleep deprived..... Might be a good idea to get ride of seating outside the room...
