A small hob and microwave,however the hob was a bit temperamental. Our room was very dark with wall lights, some with bulbs missing. Our bathroom door was a bit noisy, but these were...

Great location and Carol was extremely helpful when needed to add an extra person at short notice. Friendly service and a great location. Only con was other guests who made a racket at 3.30am for about 15minutes. Not the motels fault just inconsiderate guests. You can get these types anywhere you stay. I have no doubt that if they carried...

Kiwi Studios Motel can not be beat for location. Centrally positioned in town, with major shops only a short walk away, you'll be just as impressed as we were. Room was great value, although the poor heaters really struggled to get the room warm. The staff were great and even offered recommendations for the best food and a in town....

Passing through palmy, I needed a place to stay so dropped in unannounced/ un-booked. They were very helpful and very accommodating. The room was clean and tidy and just what I needed. A short walk, saw you in the city centre and a stones throw from a number of very good and affordable eateries. Free parking and free wifi (all...

Was there for a day overnight while driving from Taupo to Wellington via Mountain. The room was like small apartment where you can cook/boil etc. Was helpful to heat our toddler's food. Good location. Had an issue with heater as it was being turned off automatically time to time but bed heating helped us. Thanks.

My husband and I flew to Palmerston North for a family function. As we had no car, Kiwi Studios Motel was perfect because everything is within walking distance. Rooms clean and tidy and are well set up. The continental breakfast was more than adequate and the staff very accommodating. Will definitely come back here next trip to Palmerston North.

My friend and I stayed here on a road trip to Palmerston North. It is right in the middle of town so walking distance to the shops and restaurants. It was also very quiet for being in town too. Very friendly lady at reception too.

very good free wifi, and the fact that its a cheap night, are about the highlights of this place, it is actually well situated in town, so easy to get out for food etc. The room, quite large, and well equipped, but its all so ancient and cheap. the "double" bed, was 2 singles pushed together, not unusual, however when...
