I can't recommend this hotel highly enough. It was clean, comfortable and private, and offered a wonderful haven while my mother was ill in hospital. The hosts were extremely kind and helpful, letting me leave my car in the parking lot after I checked out but while I was still at the hospital.

I stayed here when my husband suddenly admitted to hospital. The owners/manager were extremely helpful and friendly. They were very sincere and thoughtful regarding my plight and went out of their way to assist. This was much appreciated at a time when stress levels are high. The room I was allocated was of extremely high quality and rivalled many overseas...

We have stayed here several times, the rooms are clean and modern, the hosts are wonderful, cafe food great and very convenient for our regular trips to the hospital. We will be returning next week, I think our 6th stay here. Return customers are their best advertisement.

Was shocked to see some of the older photos of this place on TripAdvisor so I had to write a review and take some updated photos.

Hosts were also extremely friendly unlike some of...

We had an extended stay at the Carramar after our home was flooded. The Executive Double unit had everything needed to ensure that we were very warm and comfortable. The unit was back from Ruahine Street which made it a quiet one. The staff were always welcoming and friendly. The on-site Zest Café meant that delicious meals were available too....

This motor inn is across the road from Palmerston North Hospital, so it is really well placed if you need to go to the hospital. When I walked into the unit I was seriously impressed with the up to date decor, the cleanliness and the room set up. The bathroom was excellent, a good size with an excellent shower. Cafe...
