We stayed here with our 3 children. Room was clean and had everything we needed. The main room had a full selection of Sky channels and the TV in extra room had free view which was great for the kids. Beds were comfy and the motel is close to town. We didn't hear much street noise. We will be staying...

12 months ago we had a lovely stay in a 2 bedroom unit (either room 5 or 6). This year we were put in Room 8, which has a diabolical lay out - a double bed in the lounge, a single bed in the kitchen (!), and then a double bed and a single bed squashed into one bedroom. And...

This is a very nice motel. Our room was out the back and was very quiet and clean. Everything was here and the bed was large and comfy. Carparks were many and easily accessible This motel is near the city square so was an easy walk in to the shops.

Comfy, warm, friendly host, easy going as we had a few visitors who came around for a cuppa (as we were only visiting for the weekend) and host didn't seem to mind, kitchenette had everything needed, tidy, Jet bath was a highlight for kids, sky channels, WiFi, 2 tvs in spacious room, enough beds for all! Easy parking, great location....

We went here a few years in a row for our anniversary. They have a lovely romance package. Hosts were always friendly and helpful and also made yummy brekky brought to our room. Would recommend for a cheap little getaway.

First of all we booked over the phone with 2 weeks advance wanting to book for a 6 person room, the guy was very persistent saying we could even fit 7 in the room which was perfect so we booked agreeing to $145 for all six people for 1 night. We arrived to check in and wanted to pay with...

This cost us $120 and frankly, it could have been worth it but was probably about $30 too much in our case. I'll start with the good stuff - nice big room with a good heater (great for a chilly Palmy afternoon), great location - only about 5 minutes to the edge of town centre, a big spa bath and...

My wife and I visit Palmerston North occasionally and thought that for this occasion we would give the A'La Vista motel a go. We were very glad that we did. Not only were we able to check in early, we were offered a complimentary upgrade. What a great motel. The room we had was excellently presented, very very clean. Very...

We apparently caught the lady at reception on a bad day!! She made us feel very unwelcome and was squabbling over the amount we had paid for the room online, and how many people i had booked for, we had booked a family unit sleep in 6, there were 4 adults one infant. Also we told 2 different things about...

Please accept my apology, I was unaware the bad news I had just received (via a phone call) had carried over to you. We generally can pride ourselves on our cheerfulness and helpfulness, I do hope we are able to change your mind and welcome you back for another stay.
