When I drove up, I thought I had made a big mistake judging by the outside of the place, but the room was really clean and suited my needs. The gentleman at reception was great. It was close to the city centre and I would use this motel again next time I'm in Palmy.

We stayed for the weekend in the two room apartment. Lovely owners and we had a lovely stay. Bed and pillows were really comfortable. The place was lovely and clean. I would definitely stay here again next time we are in Palmy.

Room was upstairs, was quite noisy, The whole motel smelt strongly of curry and other food smells. The bathroom in our unit was quite mouldy. Needs new pillows as the two pillows in our unit were very thin and a tad uncomfortably but it was ok for the quick overnighter we had planned.

We stayed in the 2-rooms apartment for 1 night. Check in was hassle-free, reception was warm and helpful. The room is unexpectedly spacious and very functional - big fridge, kitchen utensils, microwave over, heater, spa bathtub, free wifi - and the place was spotless clean. If I ever go Palmerston North again, I'll stay here.

Everything you would expect from a motel. Good rooms. Simple but logical layout. Spa bath. Free WiFi. Friendly service. Close to town. Perfect. We came to town for a sports tournament and this was a great place to stay........,.......................................................................

Let's start with the obvious, Illuzzions is slightly out of date. Not a bad place and actually quite close to the centre of Palmerston North. If shabby chic is your thing, then Illuzzions will fit the bill. The welcome cannot be faulted and nor can the cleanliness of the room. The only problem is that everything looks so dated -...

We were very disappointed with our stay. We have prevoiusly stayed there and had excellent service but this time it was shocking. The bathroom was gross with mold in the shower and it looked like it hadnt been cleaned in ages. The new owners do not take pride in the place.

this had to be the worst stay of my experience, having a family of toddlers we were given a room upstairs which was an effort with 3 little ones and luggage, the room was barely big enough for 2 people let alone 2 adults and 3 children... there was mould in the bathroom on the curtains walls and mushrooms growing...

Centrally located with city within easy walking distance. Cafes etc. nearby.. Value for money but decor in need of refurbishment or updating. Generally spacious and I found managment polite and very helpfull. Most likely would stay again.

We stayed three nights in a one bedroom unit. The unit was a bit dated but very comfortable and clean. As long as your expectations are not too high this is a great place to stay. It was located very close ( walking distance ) to the CBD. The staff were very welcoming. I would recommend Illuzions to anyone wanting...

“I would probably go for a unit rather than the room alone. A unit provides more space and when staying for a few days it doesn't feel so tiny. Also even though you have to use the stairs to carry luggage up, I think the upstairs rooms are better because cars are parked directly outside downstairs rooms.”
