Paid $250 a night for a one bedroom apartment, which had a shoebox living area with one chair to watch a modest sized tv, this sort of space I would expect from a cheap priced studio. Traffic noise is also a major issue here, constant throughout the night. Ask to see the room before agreeing to take it.

Stayed for one night en route to Wellington and will be back! Large room , very comfortable beds and quality bedding. Modern ,quality decor with decent desk and chair. bathroom very neat and tidy with shower and seperate bathroom. Even had heater lights fitted. Close proximity to airport and strip with great restaurants 2 minutes drive away. Even a cafe on site for breakfast/ lunch. The cafe closes at 3pm though, but eateries not far away. Sufficient parking on site. Maybe an investment in “Sky TV Plus “will make this establishment “perfect”. value for money for what is offered.

My flight from Palmerston North was cancelled, and Air New Zealand gave me a 2 night stay voucher to this motel while awaiting re-booking: it was very nice, safe, and convenient. It's close to the airport and the hospital is directly across the street. My room was very clean and contained a shower, a separate tub, 2 burner electric stove, microwave, dormitory- sized refrigerator, clean linens, and a TV. Meg and Gary were very pleasant, attentive, and helpful. Cafe Zest is next door but closes at 3 PM Friday and SAT/SUN, but there's Cafe Cravings, a Dairy and an Asian take out with Fish and Chips right down the street, within easy walking distance for other food options. I did not pay (airline did) so I can't speak about motel's value and can't compare to other motels.

Stayed here for 3 nights and it is lovely and clean and modern with parking available. Unit was great for our family with a nice bathroom and kitchen to make our own toast and coffee etc which helps save money when travelling, and great when you have small children. Has a cafe onsite which makes good coffee and nice breakfast. The reception were very accommodating as we arrived quite late and it was not a problem. You do get quite a bit of road noise and hospital noise, so I guess it depends on what unit. Would definitely stay again but would ask for a room off the main road just for the traffic noise.

My baby and I stayed here whilst dad was in hospital. It was brilliant. Firstly they were so helpful in accommodating both my mum and I despite short notice. So friendly! The room was gorgeous. So clean and tidy. Lovely decor. Included a cot for baby at no extra cost. I can't recommend enough.
