Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have stayed here many times and written positive reviews. However, this time it seemed like Aubyn Court might be providing emergency accommodation. There was a fight in the next room at 2am that lasted for a long time, then they jumped in the spa pool at 4am. The people did not look like tourists.

Hi - as I replied to the other review that you did on Expedia, first up, why did you not come & ask us this question & receive the answer before putting your assumption onto a public platform? No we do not or never have, accepted emergency housing bookings, we are not registered with WINZ as a provider. I am also disappointed that you did not let us know about the disruption you encountered either while it was happening so we could do something about it (instruction on what to do if you have a noise disturbance are given in several different places) or in morning, we were left totally unaware until your online review. I am not sure what you mean about "the people not looking like tourists", we don't only have tourists come stay at our property we also cater for domestic tourism & a large proportion of corporate & event travellers. We take pride in trying to make your stay as comfortable as possible & are sorry that this was not the case for you in this instance, but in reality we can't do anything about it if we do not know there is a problem.

I am a visiting Australian businessman. On the night before I was due to check in to this hotel, at 7.30pm , I tested positive to COVID 19. Although I had many things to arrange, I had to notify the NZ government, arrange additional accommodation, advise family, friends and any close contacts, but by 9pm this hotel was requested to cancel my next two nights accommodation as I was required to remain where i was , in another city, and self isolate. Despite this they placed a $350 cancellation fee on my credit card. They have requested emails so everything is in writing and they will "take it from there". It is now the following Saturday midday and the bill remains on my credit card. This seems a most unreasonable impost on people doing the right thing and obeying the legal requirements , who are already disadvantaged through significant additional financial, health and well being costs of isolation.

We used to use this motel every time we visited family in Palmerston North (lock downs permitting). At check-in time the couple managing the motel on reception weren't wearing masks. In a subsequent conversation when we left, (again with the manageress not wearing a mask) we were told the managers didn't believe in vaccinations, and wouldn't be vaccinated. Until the pandemic is over we'll be staying elsewhere

I was extremely disappointed to read this review. You have made several incorrect assumptions which have resulted in this very public statement based on very little information garnered from a brief encounter.

Fantastic stay. Lovely new managers Selby and Janelle are wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Modern motel with spacious well equipped units. Stayed 3 nights and highly recommended. Everything was absolutely spotless. City centre location with restaurants and shops in easy walking distance.

Owners were super friendly on arrival. Room clean and spacious. Breakfast really good and delivered to the room. Great central location. Lots of parking. Lovely roomy spa bath. Nothing seemed too much trouble from the new owners, who went out of their way to make you feel welcome.

I had a wonderful stay at the Aubyn Court Motel. Janelle & Selby were super welcoming and lovely. Was treated with a Speights, Chips & a Kit Kat upon arrival which was such a nice touch. I stayed in a Spa Access Studio which was fantastic! Absolutely spotless and extremely spacious unit, great sized kitchen and the in room spa was amazing! There was an abundance of towels and personal products which was great. Bed was very comfortable and had an quiet and excellent nights sleep. Very handy central location can walk anywhere CBD in 5 mins. It was superb value for money and will certainly be staying again when I'm in town next. Highly recommend.

We stayed on the ground floor in the room closest to the road. We had a car park right outside the room. On entry it was instantly noted how clean the room was, nice bed, beautiful spa bath in the room, great size bathroom (this seemed to be for someone with a disability so perhaps had extra room), good amount of towels for both shower and spa bath, and a handy kitchenette for us to make our dinner. It was good to not have a notice on the wall saying we would be charged extra if we did not do the dishes (we still did them anyway, but good to be treated as adults with a mind to leave things as we find it, thanks). The bed was comfy to sleep in, the spa bath was beautiful to relax in and the towels were a good size. The internet connection was great, netflix a bonus and really nice to have real cow's milk given on arrival. Yes, there was road noise but we had free ear plugs there to use if we didn't like the noise, but it didn't bother us (even though there seemed to be a bit of action going on outside). We are in the world - noise is part of it, that's life. It was another bonus having the supermarket and a shopping plaza right across the road - super handy. The owner was very friendly - checking in was a breeze. Overall, an excellent stay and I would recommend this to anyone staying in Palmerston North - thank you!!

Thank you so much for your fantastic review, it is always nice to get such lovely feedback. Had a little chuckle about the signage & "being treated like an adult" comment, so agree, we very much try to keep signage to a minimum especially the "Do Not...." type!!

Myself, husband and 3.5 year old spent 2 nights over Easter here. Absolutely loved our stay at this motel. Lovely and clean room with a big spa bath, unlimited wifi and in an amazing location close to everything we needed. Had yummy eggs Benedict for breakfast. We will definitely stay here again.
