"We arrived a bit early from Wellington but that wasnt a problem and we got settled into our room very promptly. Was pleasantly surprised to receive a complimentary basket of snack foods on arrival. Had a peaceful evening, and enjoyed the sky tv. Nice and clean, well appointed room. We forgot our phone charger when checking out and the staff were very considerate by texting me to let me know before we left town. Will definitely stay again when we get the opportunity to go back to Palmerston North."

"Due to our error in booking the owner was extremely helpful in sourcing other accommodation for me as she went out of her way to help. Returned 2 nights later and enjoyed my stay as unit was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. This is a very good place to stay close to town and local amnesties and rooms are very quiet due to location, would stay again and recommend to anyone."
