Cannot speak highly enough about this hidden gem. From the moment we arrived we all felt welcome and comfortable. Our rooms were clean and all the staff, including the manager, were friendly and professional. Will make this motel our number 1 in Palmerston North. Thank you Alpha Motor Inn.

Wow, after showing up to the Alpha only to realize I had booked the wrong motel that I regularly stayed at I was about to cancel & leave until this crazy South Africa lady (Brenda) came through the door yelling are you all alone in here? Needless to say I now have a new home in NZ & I can not fault the service or establishment in anyway. Brenda is probably one off the most attentive & funniest host I’ve had & I traveled the world. The rooms are clean with modern bathrooms & an easy self contained kitchen, beds are comfortable & the Austar tv was a pleasant distraction. All in all I found the Alpha by mistake but in the words of Arnie!! “I’ll be back”

We stayed 5 nights in a large, warm unit with all basic amenities.The managers were lovely, friendly people who demonstrated real care and effort for their guests. We will definitely return if they are still there.

Room Tip: Ask the manager, she is super friendly.
