“Style and substance ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2016 via mobile

Our stay started with a very warm welcome from the owner Steph who then put on the kettle in our unit while we parked the car - a lovely touch. The room was spacious - great to have 2 easy chairs. The lively interior was refreshing from the standard motel fare and was what drew us to make our booking. Too many other motels in the city seemed to offer tired looking, dated furnishings. All in all it was a great stay in a great location.

Stayed November 2016

I stayed here for four nights on a business trip, found the Motel online and chose it because the pictures looked great and the floor size was comparatively large for industry standard. It definitely did not disappoint! The room was beautifully decorated, and newly refurbished. On top of that the Owners Brent and Steph were so welcoming and friendly. The whole atmosphere was wonderful. They even had Netflix! Location was fantastic, close to town but still quiet.

I will definitely be staying here every time I am in Palmy for business.

We stayed one night in a studio. Very modern with a king bed, Sony tv, excellent shower and the complimentary biscuits and chocolates very much appreciated. They also have moccona coffee which was a lovely surprise. Excellent location, lovely hosts, wish we stayed longer.

One overnight stay in a redecorated 2 bed unit, centrally located for those who have to go between University and town. Welcomed and personally shown (makes a change from other accommodation who vaguely point in a general direction) to our unit by Stef. Supplied milk, cookies, chocolates and a tray of hot drink mix choices. Dinner recommendation for Cafe Cuba was spot on. Spa bath in the bathroom where it should be with plenty of towels. Nice sized rooms with heaters that worked quietly and our bathroom well ventilated via switch on ceiling extraction fan. Plenty of towels and parked off road with ease. Highly recommended. If I was to be picky, the only change I would suggest to the owners is the placement of an out of hours box for keys for the early departures. :)

Room Tip: Two level accommodation - ask for ground floor accommodation if mobility is an issue.

Found this motel on the Internet. Liked the look of the decor of the rooms and the Price. Stayed for one night. Very pleased as it was what it said. Comfortable, clean, warm and friendly and quiet. Lovely comfy bed. Spa bath was an added bonus. Netflix if you want movies, which would have been great had we stayed longer. Highly recommend this motel.
