Just two blocks from my tenpin competition and as a bonus the speedway. Enjoyed my stay. Easy walk to the shops and restaurants. Room and bed comfortable, staff friendly and helpful. Not a bad spot to be in Palmerston North!

Very much enjoyed our stay. Travelling with kids can be a handful but room available was enough for my family of four. Room was stunning. Room service every morning and location made it very easy to get around town esp for us as first time visitors to Palmy. Would def come back again next time am in town.

We stayed here for one night during Easter 2016 - two adults and two children in a room with two double beds. We booked directly through the hotel and paid NZ$119, which I thought was excellent value. The hotel is located just a few blocks from the main square, so the location is very convenient. Besides a restaurant in the...
