We stayed here over Waitangi weekend. We are repeat customers and will be very happy to return again. Excellent and very friendly service. Seems like we are staying with friends. Clean, tidy and nothing is too much trouble. Would definitely recommend to others.

The motel was conveniently located, quiet, clean and well appointed. The owners were friendly, courteous efficient and supportive in aspects of the operation from booking through to advice about local services. Will stay again and will recommend to others.

We had a great time at the Harrington. We booked out several units so we could all be together for our son's wedding. We requested a barbecue and got it. We had several people for dinner the night before hence a lot of rubbish the next day which was all cleaned up promptly. The location was superb and the service...

we also were attending a wedding held at the Chalet and Harringtons was both handy to the event and also the lovely boardwalks along the river etc. We were made most welcome by Keith who was amazingly helpful and friendly. The facilities were clean tidy and comfortable. Will definitely stay again when in Palmerston North

Read the other reviews and that's exactly what you will get. A well cared for motel but more importantly proprietors who care about you and making your stay enjoyable. We were attending a wedding at The Chalet, and Keith & Brony provided lots of useful information about how to get there and back.

Harrington's has been my motel of choice for several years. The rooms are large and comfortable, especially the beds, and I have stayed in most of them over the years! Great showers and always impeccably clean. But most of all, Keith and Brony are friendly and welcoming and very willing to make my stay as easy as possible. Highly recommended.

Not sure who cmw145 is but obviously he/she stays with us regularly. Really appreciate you taking the time to post this review and for your recommendation. Thank you. The showers are great - I call the shower heads 'watering cans' and they have no water flow restriction in them. And the cleanliness is a Given! Safe travel out there.....

We stayed at this motel twice---going to the south island, and then back to the North island. We enjoyed the first visit so much we wanted to stay there again on the way back to Auckland. The motel is very clean and comfortable--the nightly rate was reasonable and offered good value. We were especially impressed with Bronwyn, the reservations/registration clerk....

I stay with Keith and Brony on a monthly basis purely for the fact they give excellent customer service! They always have a bed for me, a clean spacious room and the cooked breaky is fantastic! Great spot near the river walkway and close enough to town. Highly recommended
