    • Single

      Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Bed was good, and plenty of places to sit comfortably.

      It took far too long to warm up the room, heating needed to be improved, and the tiles on the bathroom floor were freezing. You could not walk barefooted in the bathroom.

    • Couple

      Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed the bath and reclining chairs. Good to see recycling of rubbish. A good value place to stay.

      We struck a very cold weekend and our room had the door open when we arrived and it was was absolutely freezing! We had been out in the cold all day and were looking forward to a nice warm room. It didn't take too long for heat pump to kick in though.

    • Older travelers

      Central location

      Quiet considering in centre of city. Clean and very comfortable bed.

    • Older travelers

      Good sized room - clean facilities.Great service with a yummy breakfast. Value for money. Lovely hosts who went the extra mile for us.Plenty of parking - close to town.Would definitely stay there again.

    • Older travelers

      When we arrived, the room we were allocated had been used previously by someone who enjoyed 'curry' and the smell was still apparent. Without even asking they moved us to a better unit which we enjoyed. We would stay there again without hesitation.

    • Older travelers

      The friendly greeting and a service that did not seem to be any trouble.

      A bit noisy with the service station and 'boy racers' and their exhausts, but knowledge that tat is hard to combat.

    • Older travelers

      It was surprisingly quiet, very clean and well kept - as well as well kept day by day. Friendly helpful staff. We will definitely stay again if we are ever down that way.

    • Older travelers

      Its location, the welcome we received and friendly management

      some aspects need updating

    • Older travelers

      Our stay at the Shadzz was excellent. Very friendly owners and nothing was too much trouble. Very professional, and yet also very approachable and friendly.

      My only issue I would have to say was the use of internet. Coming from Australia and Holland we found it to be extremely expensive to use the internet from the Shadzz, compared to other places we have stayed which was all part of the package.

    • Older travelers

      It was everything we expected. The motel was a pleasure to stay in and could not fault it at all. It is very central to everything.

      The only thing I would have liked was to have a hand rail into the spa bath and shower.

    • Older travelers

      A modern well appointed motel close to city, university and most Palmerston North amenities. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and staff extra helpful. This would be one of the best motels I have stayed at in New Zealand. Unbelievable value for money. Well done, Shadzz.

    • Older travelers

      Friendly and very helpful for wheelchair and warm. The bathroom was very good for wheel chair and only thing the car park out front should be marked wheel chair or unit number and slightly wider so person can exit car and onto chair. We parked by fence as no room with a van on one side and car on other. We will use you again.

    • Family with children

      I loved the welcoming feel of the whole place. Although next to the main st in conjunction with the traffic lights, It was really quiet. The owners were just wonderful. Very pleasant to speak with and very warm welcomes and farewells were exchanged by both husband (on arrival) and wife (on departure)

    • Single

      Very friendly staff. well equipped kitchen. warm, very clean. Bathroom was fab with lots lovely complimentry items.

      Didn't like the key system as felt uncomfortable coming into dark unit and having to put key into key system before lights could be activated.

    • Older travelers

      size of apartment, service, cleanliness all were first class
