This little favourite of mine. Although rooms are not large, they are modern, very clean and the location is perfect. Very comfortable and the showers are so good it is like taking a sauna at the same time as a full pressure shower. Location is second to none.

Clean, tidy and good location. Stayed here recently for work. Friendly and helpful service. Decor a little dated and rooms not very sound proof. My unit backed onto a back alley and it wasnt pleasant when trucks are unloading or something at 5.30 am.

Another motel/hotel that seems to have umpteen lights in a unit but never over the bed to read by. However, the studio unit was pleasant, the price was good, and most importantly the motel was right in the middle of town. Thumbs up from me.

3 quilting friends (+ one husband for 2 nights) down in Palmerston North for the quilt symposium last month so booked the largest unit for 7 nights. Thought it had 2 bedrooms so we were disappointed to find one bedroom and rest of beds in the living area. We all had a lot of luggage and this would have been...

My band stay here when we all migrate to Palmerston North for the annual Jenny Mair Square Day (pipe band competition). I have now stayed here 8 consecutive years in December and other times throughout the year if I'm ever in Palmy. Kiwi Studios are always accommodating and friendly (and not to mention tolerant of our group). The rooms are...

Picked this Motel for proximity to the Regent too see a show. Close to bars and restaurants as well. Walked everywhere. Great. Very reasonable charges for a clean modern unit. Quick, no nonsense check in, managers seemed like nice people. Comfortable sleep, nice bed. I would not think of any other accommodation if I was repeating this trip. This property...

Very easy to find, close to main shopping areas, restaurants and The Square. This motel was quiet even though it was so central. Clean and tidy. Great water pressure in the showers! Friendly and helpful.

This is our second stay at Kiwi Studios, and this time was just as good as the first, although different manager, but once again she went out of her way to help us where ever she could and nothing was a problem. She even put more coins in the dryer at the laundry for me when we had to go...

This motel was clean, surprisingly quiet and very handy to the city with lots of restaurant/takeaway choices on the same block. It's a quick walk to the square, movies and shopping centres. The only downside is the area is a little down at heel - but not at all unsafe feeling.

Price was very good for $99 but whatever you do - don't lose your key! otherwise when you add the replacement - it wasn't cheap at all! Bed was comfy - tv was a suitable size, hairdryer was missing but they provided a replacement. We had no problems with the size of the room - I guess if you will...
