This lovely little motel is 'tucked away' behind shops in Broadway Avenue. Although you cant see much from the street, this adds to its appeal. Due to its location it is very quiet. Good security, especially at night. Lovely receptionist. Our double room was very spacious and comfortable. Was clean, tidy. Good parking outside door with good access to room....

My husband, son and I recently stayed one night (Tuesday) on our way through to attending an event in Masterton the following day. We were looking for somewhere that was fairly cheap but nice and we definitely found it at Kiwi Studios Motel. The room included a king size bed and a single, kitchenette and seperate bathroom/toilet. It was really...

The location of Kiwi Studios Motel is perfect for visiting Palmerston North; walking distance to the Square, the Shopping Plaza and a myriad of shops and restaurants. Perfect for the every-day, value-for-money tourist or local. Clean, comfortable rooms furnished with all that you need. Fridge, hob and microwave in the room. Central ceiling fan to combat those hot temperatures that...

Last night I stayed here with some friends and had a great time. I did struggle to find this place as I didn't realise how central it would be and it was right next door to a whole line of shops so was a bit tricky to spot. The hosts here were very helpful and friendly and gave us some...

Our room was spacious and tidy with a little kitchenette. Although I bumped my head on the microwave cupboard several times because the cupboards were too low. The one uncomfortable experience was how cold the unit was. It had louvre window in the lounge that was covered by the curtains. It was open and it wasn't discovered till the second...

We found this hotel to be good value. The location in the town centre was great. While the rooms are small they contain everything you could need. The bed is not pushed up against the wall so you can access from both sides. The bathroom was small but adequate. I've added photos to give you a good idea.

Liked this motel. i was surprised when I found it as it was set behind shops and I thought I had made a mistake, thinking it was an inner city hole. However, it was clean. modern and appeared to have been recently renovated. Close to city shops, free wi-fi. Had a little mini kitchen which was really useful.

recently stayed with my elderly parents, while the bathroom was quite tight for the old people my husband and i found it fine. Equipped with cook top microwave and jug and some utensils, the bed was comfy enough and the hosts very helpful and welcoming. Good location for the square can walk around town easily, good location for that

This little favourite of mine. Although rooms are not large, they are modern, very clean and the location is perfect. Very comfortable and the showers are so good it is like taking a sauna at the same time as a full pressure shower. Location is second to none.

Clean, tidy and good location. Stayed here recently for work. Friendly and helpful service. Decor a little dated and rooms not very sound proof. My unit backed onto a back alley and it wasnt pleasant when trucks are unloading or something at 5.30 am.
