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.

Another motel/hotel that seems to have umpteen lights in a unit but never over the bed to read by. However, the studio unit was pleasant, the price was good, and most importantly the motel was right in the middle of town. Thumbs up from me.

3 quilting friends (+ one husband for 2 nights) down in Palmerston North for the quilt symposium last month so booked the largest unit for 7 nights. Thought it had 2 bedrooms so we were disappointed to find one bedroom and rest of beds in the living area. We all had a lot of luggage and this would have been...

My band stay here when we all migrate to Palmerston North for the annual Jenny Mair Square Day (pipe band competition). I have now stayed here 8 consecutive years in December and other times throughout the year if I'm ever in Palmy. Kiwi Studios are always accommodating and friendly (and not to mention tolerant of our group). The rooms are...

Picked this Motel for proximity to the Regent too see a show. Close to bars and restaurants as well. Walked everywhere. Great. Very reasonable charges for a clean modern unit. Quick, no nonsense check in, managers seemed like nice people. Comfortable sleep, nice bed. I would not think of any other accommodation if I was repeating this trip. This property...
