As two couples travelling together this suited us perfectly. It was heated for us and the person greeted us with our name. A really lovely way to start a stay. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and modern. Close to town so we walked to George at for a lovely meal.

Had a great stay. Friendly service, great location and a fabulous room shared by 7 friends in town for the night. The room was quiet and clean and beds were comfy. Plenty of fresh towels for all. The black make-up face clothes are a great idea.

Shadz Motel is undoubtly one of the top motels to stay with. Very helpful and courteous hosts, and within very easy walking distance of the city and a good choice of different restaurants very close by. The rooms are very well serviced, above average in size, and members of the host chain. I stay there on many different occasions throughout...

Our room was spacious with plenty of seating plus a comfy couch. Guests are well catered for with clean crockery etc. The bed was comfortable and I had a good nights sleep without any noticeable noise from other guests or traffic.

Fabulous spacious room, everything you could possibly want. Kitchen, linen changed and rubbish removed everyday. Beds are sanitised, mattress and pillow protectors great. Exceptionally clean. Hosts are amazing. Breakfast, I know is scrumptious. Five minute walk to the centre of town. Parking on site. Very quiet with double glazed windows. 50+ channels on Sky TV. A thoroughly enjoyable break. I...

I lived in Palmerston North for a number of years and used to make fun of this motel, with it's name that I wasn't sure how to pronounce and it's 80's like exterior, but I found a good deal online and it had good reviews, so I booked a room.
