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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a one bedroom with spa which was lovely, clean and finished to an amazing standard. The spa was a huge double spa Bath, we’d never seen anything like it. Our host John couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful. We wanted a walk into town to eat after a long drive but it started raining so he dropped us off at a recommended restaurant where we had a lovely meal and as the rain had stopped we had a nice walk back to our place which was only 15 min from the main square. Would highly recommend this accommodation.

We are regulars at the City Corporate and the reason why we return each year is that it is always top notch. This place is beautifully presented, fitted with quality furnishings and linens with spacious studio rooms and immaculate in every respect. The complex has double-glazing and air-con so is always comfortable and quiet. John has owned/managed this complex for some years now and is consistently welcoming and friendly, and we feel very comfortable here. This is my third genuine review of the City Corporate over the past few years and I hope that readers can see through the comments of the previous reviewer, who appears to have created a Trip Advisor profile purely to write a spurious review of this hotel, and they should be removed.

What you book is not what you get and the price you book for is not what you pay. the room was not what we booked and was changed into a different room where I had to sleep on the floor on a mattress and then charged us extra for it!!! Lots of nice places to stay in Palmerston North, avoid this one.

I am reviewing this place for the second time; we returned here after a two year gap and found the same high quality accommodation that we remembered from the last time. This place has supremely clean, comfortable, modern and spacious rooms with everything in top condition, large bathroom, nice toiletries, immaculate kitchenette. Love that the fittings are all solid wood and other quality materials. Linens and towels are beautifully fresh and white. I really like that the bed cover is white too, you can be confident that it is all very clean. The quiet location close to town is a bonus. We had a look at the one-bedroom apartments - they look fabulous and might be our choice next time. Thanks John for another excellent stay, you must be the best in Palmerston North.

We absolutely love this place. The rooms are modern and comfortable beds so are the sofa chairs. The spa bath would be the highlight. The receptionist is really nice and helpful. Will definately stay again.

We stayed for one night at this Motor Inn, which is a ten min walk away from the town, the room was very clean, lovely bed, bathroom and shower very good, Spa bath in the room, all done to a very high standard, breakfast was taken in the room, which was cooked by the owner also very good. Not sure if Palmerston North is worth a stop, if on holiday maybe best to keep moving, but if you do stop this is the place to stay.

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. First impression from the outside was, Its new understated and very industrial in design and colour. Inside my room was if I had walked into a Sheraton or Hilton ( I have stayed in these properties lots) Fantastic decor comfort awesome bed, Beautiful spa bath and well equipped kitchen. This is one of those properties that gave me a wonderful feeling and a place I looked forward to returning to after a hard days work. .
