Positive Reviews

Opposite the hospital

The motel’s position right across the street from Palmerston North Hospital makes it a convenient option for family and friends visiting patients at the hospital. Guests also report that the close proximity to the airport and city centre, both less than a ten-minute drive from the motel, further adds to the convenience.

Superb customer service

The motel’s management and staff receive consistent praise from guests for providing exceptional service. Reviewers describe employees as friendly, helpful and informative, while those visiting loved ones in the hospital mention that their hosts are sympathetic and genuinely caring.

Restaurant located on site

The motel features an on-site cafe-cum-restaurant, a detail that proves very popular with guests, especially those using the motel as a stopgap on a longer journey across the North Island. Those stopping by for breakfast or lunch describe the food as tasty and filling, while the service is considered to be first-class.

Negative Reviews

Traffic noise

Reviews indicate that traffic noise can be a concern for guests staying at the motel. According to guests, rooms located on the main road side of the property tend to be beset with the din of passing vehicles. This proves to be a drawback for light sleepers hoping for a good night’s rest.
