Thanks for your recent staya and taking the time to review your visit with us. Great that you liked our location and our lovely clean rooms and beds. Will look into wifi connection, our fibre network usually pretty good, so maybe a cliche at this end

Hosts are delightful, very welcoming and all accommodation is very comfortable and shows attention to detail. I have to be in Palmerston every month for a night or two and have become addicted to their excellent friendly service.

I spent 15 days at the Cornwall Motor Lodge on a recent business trip. The location is very convenient for all of the local amenities that you might need. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious, and was equipped with basic self-catering essentials. The patrons were extremely welcoming and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble for them. I would...

Looked at several places online to stay in the mid-price range in Palmerston North. Many of them came back with 'dirty', 'old', 'dated', 'shabby' - Cornwall Motor Lodge is none of these. It's comfy, bright and tidy, and the beds are fantastic! Would have liked the option of a spa bath (note to others - they are in the photos,...

Thanks for your recent stay. I think you booked the accessible units, which of course only come with showers. We have three in our complex, but the other 25 units all have either a spa bath or large self full spa pools. Hopefully you get the opportunity to return and we can book a spa unit for you

Lovely hosts, spacious & modern accommodation, special extra touches like wine on arrival & plunger coffee in the morning. The location is within walking distance to the square and the mall - so restaurants and shops are on your doorstep. This will become my regular accommodation in Palmerston North.

Our usual motel wanted a minimum two night stay for the holiday weekend - but the Cornwall had no such issues. This worked out as we really enjoyed our choice! Stayed in a studio unit, it was spacious and well laid out. Big spa, 50 sky channels, great location really close to town, own balcony, even robes - yeah! Friendly...

The hotel is really nice. I booked the studio room with spa which I think is great value for money. It is a really spacious room too. Short walk to central town make the location. Takes about 5 minutes to get to the square.

Great room, great venue, ok price. Safe, clean, spacious. Absolute luxury. I would say that we had the best sleep ever during our holiday. We had a room with a spa bath in our room however we didn't get the opportunity to use it, in saying that I don't get having spa baths in the rooms.
