Overnight stop in Palmerston North

Posted Feb 25, 2016
Pros: It's situated close to the centre of town in a quiet side street. Our upstairs unit,was well appointed.
Location: There was a very good restaurant nearby and other options in the centre a short walk away.
We had a very friendly welcome and had received exact directions on how to find the motel. It had been a very warm day but the room was not over hot.. We were woken next morning at 6am by the noise of machinery - and it did not stop. I think this was from work being done on one of the downstairs units.

Hi, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us here at the Alpha Motor Inn. This motel is certainly well situated for an easy stroll into town. About that noise .... we remember it .... it was not the norm! It was the people across the road ... water blasting their property!! Woke us all up! We are very sorry about that. We have had construction next door and they never started before 7.45am. Hope to see you again when next you are in Palmy!

Easy walk to town

Posted Feb 21, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: Handy location
Cons: Aircon or at least a Fan. Light block-out window coverings
Location: Easy walk into town, shops, restaurants & cafe's, movie theatre etc
Hosts very friendly & inviting. Uncomfortable warm sleeping conditions, missed our Air-con; they could supply a Fan for summer since there is a heater in the room for winter.

Hello! We have had an exceptionally hot summer! It is abnormal for Palmy to get so hot. We do have a few fans and had we known you needed a one, we would have given you one and your stay would have been far more comfortable. We do hope we see you next time you come to Palmy.

Nice quiet motel, close to town

Posted Feb 13, 2016
Stayed 3 nights in a studio unit, in mid-Feb 2106. Owners are lovely people who go out of their way to assist their clientele where they can. Rooms are regionally personalised by the Owner's own travels around NZ, which include canvas photographic collages and travel ideas for those particular areas (in additional to tourist tips for local areas). Looking forward to returning next year !
