I stay here every month, it's like home from home, central to Palmerston north centre just a walk away, the hosts are so welcoming nothing is to much effort. The rooms are spacious with all amenities, beds very comfortable too.

The unit was very tastefully decorated, was spacious and contained everything we needed. The bedding and bed were great and the bathroom was lovely! It has lots of sky channels so that was a nice...

I've stayed at this motel multiple times for business reasons. Always very clean, modern rooms (note some older rooms on site but still clean), check in is a breeze. Value for money and close to CBD. Highly recommended for business and leisure. Ample parking. As titled, Flawless 5 Circles.

Stayed here earlier this week, room was freshly renovated and was nicely appointed. Checkin was no fuss and staff are very friendly. Tariff is very reasonable and well worth considering if youre looking for good quality accomodation in Palmerston North. Its location is at the top of fitzherbert avenue with easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants.
