An unplanned business trip ment we needed a place to stay. We arrived very late but Carol made it easy for us and accommodated our needs. The rooms are nice and clean, central location would be good if we had time to take advantage. Carol, you're a legend.

The staff were very helpful and friendly during our stay. Staff allowed us to park in their car park a little longer when we requested it for a graduation event, at no extra charge. They also had great local knowledge when asked about places to go. The location was very central in Palmerston North Palmerston North.

Cute motel close to city, clean unit with fast FREE WiFi, excellent shower pressure and simple amenities. The room has been renovated (mid 2000s?) with a King bed, small kitchenette. The only thing is the TV should be replaced. I think mine was about 19" or 20" with a dark/fuzzy picture. That may have only been the TV in the...

A small hob and microwave,however the hob was a bit temperamental. Our room was very dark with wall lights, some with bulbs missing. Our bathroom door was a bit noisy, but these were...

Great location and Carol was extremely helpful when needed to add an extra person at short notice. Friendly service and a great location. Only con was other guests who made a racket at 3.30am for about 15minutes. Not the motels fault just inconsiderate guests. You can get these types anywhere you stay. I have no doubt that if they carried...

Kiwi Studios Motel can not be beat for location. Centrally positioned in town, with major shops only a short walk away, you'll be just as impressed as we were. Room was great value, although the poor heaters really struggled to get the room warm. The staff were great and even offered recommendations for the best food and a in town....

Passing through palmy, I needed a place to stay so dropped in unannounced/ un-booked. They were very helpful and very accommodating. The room was clean and tidy and just what I needed. A short walk, saw you in the city centre and a stones throw from a number of very good and affordable eateries. Free parking and free wifi (all...

Was there for a day overnight while driving from Taupo to Wellington via Mountain. The room was like small apartment where you can cook/boil etc. Was helpful to heat our toddler's food. Good location. Had an issue with heater as it was being turned off automatically time to time but bed heating helped us. Thanks.
