Positive Reviews

Friendly staff

Staff at the motel are incredibly friendly, according to visitors. According to reviews, employees here happily assist with anything guests require of them, with some visitors remembering stand-out staff members by name. Travellers report team members carefully helping them select the perfect room to meet their needs and answering any questions that arise. Overall, visitors say the workers make the motel a better place to stay because of the high-end service they offer. Travellers visiting loved ones in the nearby hospital applaud the comforting and compassionate service they receive here.

Good location

Travellers are fond of the motel's location, as it is across the street from Palmerston North Hospital and steps from a cafe that is open all day long. While in close proximity to numerous highways, the surrounding area is still thought to be peaceful and quiet. The motel is outside of Palmerston North's Central Business District, but visitors mention shopping venues and other restaurants aren't far either. Many guests are relieved to report it is fairly easy to reach the downtown area with a vehicle as well.

Spotless, spacious rooms

Rooms throughout the property are incredibly clean, as travellers say the staff does an excellent job with maintaining them and ensuring they are comfortable upon arrival. The rooms are also luxuriant, with many being full apartments featuring cooking facilities and separate bedrooms. Guests are extremely pleased with the quality of their rooms because of both their tidiness and size.
