“Great service with good price and environment !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2011

We are bagpackers, travelling North & South Island, bagpacker's lodge usually will be our preference. However, We chose to stay in this motel because the price is affordable with friendly staff nice environment. We are very satisfied with our choice and a big thanks to Hans for his excellant service (giving extra miles and useful travel tips). He made us feel at home :)

I travelled through both North and South Island and Civello was by far the best motel. It is clean, very friendly staff, spacious and at a very affordable price. Thanks Colin and Luis

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2009

We have generally been staying in hostels but chose this location because of its price and facilities available. Although it is counted as a motel there is a kitchen available for use. There are shared bathrooms but they are very clean. We stayed in a twin room which was spacious and had free tea and coffee provided in the room. The owner was lovely, very friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well equiped and there was a nice dining area. It is about an 8 minute walk into town and very easy to get to with a car. An added bonus was free internet from 5-10pm. Very close by is the espanade and park which is lovely to walk to or around. Would stay here again if I returned to Palmerston North.
