Overwhelmed by the choice of motels on Fitzherbert Street we chose this one, and it turned out fine. It was $130 for a studio. The room was quite new, with clean basic furnishings and a heater. We had a very comfortable king bed, a spa bath (which we didn't really need) and a basic, functional kitchen. There was a TV and a laz-e-boy chair, which my husband liked, good free WiFi and a TV with Sky. The place has a pool (but too cold for swimming), plenty of parking and we had a back unit which was quiet. Close to plenty of dining choices. All over, pretty good for the money - and the bed was comfortable and warm, which was the most important thing.
Date of stay: July 2019
Room Tip: Our unit 18 was at the back, and quiet.

My wife & I together with our canine companion stayed their for one night. The property is well located and within walking distance of the square. Our room was adequate for our needs. Bedside lighting would be a welcome addittion.

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.

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.

Reviewed 4 February 2018

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
