Beds very comfy, large rooms and so well maintained. Couldn't fault the cleanliness. Hosts Diane & Geoff were wonderful, they couldn't have been more helpful. Would highly recommend this motel to anyone wanting to stay in Palmerston North. Very handy to town and all cafes etc. Will make this motel our first choice for future accommodation.

I travelled from Australia to spend one weekend in Palmerston North for a family member's birthday. I had limited sleep time & I woke to a mouse in my bed on the second night. As it ran over my face, it scratched me. Obviously I spent the rest of the night terrified. I sent an email to the motel to...

Thank you for your review. Yes we are aware of your complaint about a mouse. Unfortunately we were not alerted to the issue until the office opened at 8:30 am. We do offer a 24 hour in house phone service and would have been only too happy to address the issue in the middle of the night. Further, we are...

Comfortable and pleasant to stay. Not far from city centre. Room equipped with micowave oven and some utensils. Appreciate a free laundry service per stay. Do not forget to visit the amazing and awesome rose garden.

I stayed here for one night. The bed was so warm and comfortable, and you can walk to the square easily which is where I spent the bulk of my limited time in palmy. Loved the spa bath in the bathroom.

We returned today from a week in Palmesrton North and we're lucky to have accomodation organised for us at the Fitzherbert Castle Motel. What a great location to the town centre and a very generous sized room that was well equipped with appliances - jug, microwave, mini fridge. Nice big bathroom and a very effective room heater. Everything was very...

just a one night stay before an early flight out. Nice warm welcome, very spacious room, with large bed, tub chair, small table & two chairs and desk (plenty of room). A really nice comfortable room with a luxury feel to it. Very clean and tidy also. Although on main road, it was very quiet. Cooked breakfast was also great.

We have traveled to Palmerston North quite often and really do like staying at Fitzherhert Castle. Proprietors Geof and Diana make you real welcome. The walk to the Plaza just a stone throw away and the breakfasts that Geoff says he cooks ! real worthy of the cause.The units are extremely tidy and our choice of unit 8 or 9...

What a pleasant surprise ... Quiet even though on a busy street. Central and within walking distance to local Mall.Clean room, comfortable bed.Lovely breakfasts. Will stay again ... The only odd thing was a knock on the door at 0300 one night! We suspect someone got the wrong room!

This is a nice, clean, not fancy,2-story motel in Palmerston North. We booked here on our way north from Wellington in order to avoid another expensive night in Wellington. Owners Diana and Jeff were VERY nice; Jeff offering to take our bags upstairs (we accepted) and downstairs (we declined). Diana walked us down the street about 100 meters to show...

What nice people ! We had a huge room with complete kitchen facilities. Although it's on a main road, our room at the back was very quiet and very comfortable. We walked to very large supermarket in a shopping centre and could cook well in the cute kitchen area.
