We were staying overnight for a family emergency and had previously booked at another motel but were very disappointed with that one on arrival. We found Ala Vista on line and decided to check it out. The host was very welcoming. Rooms were lovely and clean. Quiet area. We had a very restful sleep. Highly recommend.
Thank tonyknox

Family gathering in palmerston north. One unit for 6 of us was perfect. Nothing flash but comfortable clean and warm. Plenty of parking. Rooms were tidy and well serviced. One of the double beds was a bit tired and rolled into the middle.

Location of the hotel was good, close to mall and airport - good walk down to Victoria Park. Room was large enough with lounge area and 2 bedrooms. Let down was the bathroom - the plug in the shower was broken and although we told the lady on the desk they didn’t do anything about it. There was also mould on the bathroom walls.
Thank Duncan M

stayed with family on visit to PN. Booked the two bedroom family room - well setup with 4 beds (2 doubles and 2 singles). Microwave, elements, jug and toaster + decent sized fridge/freezer. Toilet and shower combined. Plenty of parking at the front of the room. Nice concrete swimming pool that was greatly appreciated in the recent heat wave. Overall the motel is a little tired but well maintained. Could do with air conditioning (but so could lots of places!)
Situated on Fitzherbet ave halfway between town and the university. Easy walking access to Esplanade.
Would stay again

This motel is in a handy position to town and several restaurants all within walking distance.A great place if you have kids as the pool was well used.Our Room was clean and a good size .Might need a shower curtain round the very large spa bath.
