Fabulous spacious room, everything you could possibly want. Kitchen, linen changed and rubbish removed everyday. Beds are sanitised, mattress and pillow protectors great. Exceptionally clean. Hosts are amazing. Breakfast, I know is scrumptious. Five minute walk to the centre of town. Parking on site. Very quiet with double glazed windows. 50+ channels on Sky TV. A thoroughly enjoyable break. I would only go to Shadzz motel when I'm in Palmerston North and can certainly recommend it to all. We stayed there 7 months previous and everything was just as good.

Room Tip: Room #13 it's very large and super comfy.

We have stayed here a few times over the past few years while our daughter studied at Massey University. Fabulous friendly hosts who cannot do enough to make your visit a pleasant one. Great sized units, comfy couches and very central location. This last visit was in a family two bedroom unit and it was amazingly spacious with room to gather all together in the lounge. Highly recommend.

We stayed for a few days three years ago and Shadzz was an excellent choice. Due to family reasons we have just spent the last 3 weekends in August 2016 back at Shadzz and it is still the best motel we have ever stayed at! Cleanest motel we have ever experienced, very friendly personable service from Peter & Roselle (who remembered us!) and lots of great touches in the room. Who charges only $1.50 for a bag of chippies from the in-room snack tray? Free wifi a great bonus too.

Speaking of cost, try finding a motel in Palmerston North at $110 per night for a double spa bath studio? If you book early enough from their website you might snag such a deal. We've been lucky. Thanks Shadzz, great property and great service yet again!

Many thanks for your positive review about our motel. It has been our pleasure to host you at our motel while you have been attending to family matters in Palmerston North. We hope you will come and stay again, soon.

We are pleased you find our motel clean and comfortable. We put a lot of energy into making sure we meet and exceed our customer expectations.

You are correct; the deal you managed to get for your studio room is only available on specific days and is at the Managers discretion.

Thank you for booking directly with us and using our Motel website booking page to get the best rate.

Regards.
Roselle & Peter

I lived in Palmerston North for a number of years and used to make fun of this motel, with it's name that I wasn't sure how to pronounce and it's 80's like exterior, but I found a good deal online and it had good reviews, so I booked a room.
Seriously impressed.
We booked a one bedroom unit, with 3 single beds in the bedroom (perfect for our 3 young kids) and a queen bed in the living area.The inside is clean, warm and modern, furnishings are lovely, bed and couch comfortable and the kids loved the spa bath! It was lovely.
I really have nothing to complain about. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the location is excellent, the hosts friendly and accommodating. We will definitely stay again on our next visit to Palmerston North. Still not 100% of how to pronounce the name though!

Wow! Many thanks for your positive review. We are glad you enjoyed the new furniture + amenities and found it a nice unit for your family. As a family ourselves, we know how important it is to be comfortable when away from home! The name of the motel is pronounced as 'Shades' (i.e. put on your sunglasses!).

We hope to see you return for another visit, soon!

Regards.
