Stay when ever in Palmy for inexpensive quiet accomodation. The owner is very friendly and helpful. It's centrally located and therefore easy to find, and has free wifi (stronger signal near the kitchen / weaker in the studio unit), tv with all freeview channels, a large dining room, and off road parking.

I stay regularly at Civello when I am working in Palmerston North. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and although they are not ensuite they are all close to bathrooms which are always spotless. The kitchen is great and has everything you would need. Staff are always helpful and friendly giving the place a 'home away from home' feel....

I had a group of 19 stay at Civello and it was ideal. We had the main block and the men in our group all stayed comfortably upsatirs while the women were downstairs. The management group were friendly and accommodating and helped us to play to our potential.

Hans looked after me and my friends well, and even allowed us to use the kitchen past opening hours. The kitchen was well equipped and clean. There was also free WIFI (the hours of use are limited though, but connection is good).
