I have to admit we were attracted by price as it's a bit cheaper than other nearby alternatives. So we were tentatively prepared to find something not really up to scratch, but we were very wrong. OK it's not the flashest joint around but it was perfectly adequate and certainly no worse that more expensive options. We stayed in the...

I stayed in a studio room for one Friday night, which was great value, clean and modern and had everything I needed. The lady looking after the motels was very friendly, and the motel was right near the Square and within walking distance to the shops and eateries. While the motel was located in the centre of town and it...

Great motel, classy, clean, very quiet for a very central location, good facilities (e.g. kitchen), and the receptionist and other staff were very friendly and would bend over backwards to ensure you had a pleasant stay. Bed really comfy and shower great. Towels replaced and coffee and tea replenished daily. Wifi fast and easily available.

Nice motel with caring staff. All the furniture and kitchen, bed and bathroom are newly done. Value for money, everything is in walking distance of the nice little city. The best restaurant in town, Aberdeen, is next door.

If you want to be close to the city centre this is a good option. The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean, albeit a little dated. Great value for money. Located on Broadway Avenue it's close to the shops, restaurants, and plaza so it's walking distance to most things in the city centre.

Greeted nicely by the admin, had an issue with my booking by she was more than happy to help. Room was very nice and had all the necessities needed. Location was central to shops. Heard a bit of loud music, wasn't too sure if that was another guest or pub/club nearby, however, for the most part, we enjoyed our stay...

This lovely little motel is 'tucked away' behind shops in Broadway Avenue. Although you cant see much from the street, this adds to its appeal. Due to its location it is very quiet. Good security, especially at night. Lovely receptionist. Our double room was very spacious and comfortable. Was clean, tidy. Good parking outside door with good access to room....

My husband, son and I recently stayed one night (Tuesday) on our way through to attending an event in Masterton the following day. We were looking for somewhere that was fairly cheap but nice and we definitely found it at Kiwi Studios Motel. The room included a king size bed and a single, kitchenette and seperate bathroom/toilet. It was really...

The location of Kiwi Studios Motel is perfect for visiting Palmerston North; walking distance to the Square, the Shopping Plaza and a myriad of shops and restaurants. Perfect for the every-day, value-for-money tourist or local. Clean, comfortable rooms furnished with all that you need. Fridge, hob and microwave in the room. Central ceiling fan to combat those hot temperatures that...
