Stayed here previously with the Tour of NZ bike race in 2013 and thought the place to be reasonable. Here again with the race 2017 and not so impressed this time. It seems there is a wide range of rooms available and this one wasn't so great. (Motel room block nearest the hotel ?room 19?) I know beige is the...

Stayed two nights in this hotel. The rooms are adequate with an iron and ironing board. A nice selection of drinks and snacks in the mini bar. Plenty of parking under ground and above. Reception staff friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant that have some yummy tasting food.

Arrived mid evening after a very long day of travel. Quick check in,(and check out) friendly staff, comfortable bed and restaurant stays open until 9.30 which suited us with a late arrival. It's not 5 star but certainly very comfortable and fits in nicely to the overall area. Nothing at all to complain about and,would stay there again when next...

The Coachman is a favourite hotel when visiting Palmerston North. It is comfortable if slightly old fashioned. This time we found reception a bit unfriendly - two young women receptionists could not be bothered to answer when we said hello as we passed by on two occasions. The room was nice but lighting was very poor for reading when sitting...

Stayed here for one night when our camping trip was cut short due to stormy weather. Was pleasantly surprised by the $99 tariff for two adults and one child. Room was clean and well maintained, even though a little bit dated.

Good location, just outside the central square. Very attractive hotel and nicely presented. Reception staff are very helpful and professional. We had booked for two nights, but had to leave after one night. We were given a full refund for the night we couldn't stay, which I thought was excellent customer care. We had dinner and a few drinks. The...

Location was great, service was good, rooms were neat and tidy. however, and there is always a however. Room was advertised as having a King size bed but actually contained a Queen.
