    Great Hotel Great Value ”

    This hotel provided the best price at Level 2 COVID. We were surprised many other accomodation providers in the area did not lower prices or any price lowering was negligible to attract back travellers. Distinction was easy to find, good free secure parking, rooms very clean, bathroom small but functional and clean. Good sound proofing, warm and we had a great stay with welcoming staff.

    Bars, restaurants and mall on your doors step. CBD. All in walking distance. The hotel has a restaurant, did not eat there but the menu looked amazing. Staff were friendly. Parking in a secure park. Rooms are clean and has all the usual room condiments with a little sewing kit to boot. Has free WI-FI. So if you visit Palmerston North stay here. Very reasonably priced too.

    First time I've stayed here, many with Distinction at other places and I can say, not one of them is the same! Palmerston was okay, I definitely got what I paid for which in one hand I can't complain but on the other, you kind of have to..The bed and room was great, nicely set out and very clean with a little window. The bathroom was pretty small with a shower curtain that didn't go down to the tray so you're stepping out to a wet floor or a wet bath mat. What I couldn't handle was the neighboring door slamming shut from them coming in and out, it echoed right through the whole room and woke me up with a fright and with being on my own, it wasn't a good feeling..but at the end of the day, you get what you pay for.

    Being away from Fitzherbert Ave where most other accomodation is based is a good thing. It is a notorious drag strip at night and noisy. Distinction room was clean, tidy and only annoyance was its car park was full so had to park on main road and empty car of all valuables.

    Chewing gum stuck to bathroom wall”

    I liked the hotel itself and there was good secure parking (even 3 parks for one room which was good), but there was a big piece of chewing gum stuck to the tissue holder on the wall which just makes you think what else hasnt been cleaned when that is so obvious. But what made our stay disappointing was that we had 4 adults to our room but they only gave us 2 towels. We got back from an event around 1230am and were tired, just wanted a shower and go to bed but had to share disgusting towels with each other. The booking was clearly for 4 adults as well.
