The Motel owners were extremely friendly...even made sure my room was warm upon arrival on a cold evening. Rooms are very stylish, with comfortable beds - this is important for us business travellers to get a good nights sleep. Excellent value for money when visiting Palmerston North.

Chocolate in the fridge was a nice touch. Centrally located, spacious, tidy and well equipped room. Only minor let down was the spa bath didn’t work. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again.
