      well appointed room

      the meal that was catered for the business party was great but there wasn't any pre-food to the drinks and therefore everyone was drunk before the food arrived.. it didn't seem that logical.

      Nice and close to town and having the restaurant in the lobby was awesome.

      Rooms were very hot over night. Better air conditioning would be great, especially coming into the summer months

      Very nice facilities, good parking, pleasant staff. Beautiful meal. We thought the make up flannel in the bathroom was an excellant idea.

      clean comfortable room. Staff lovely, helpful and friendly.

      Spa - could do with a list of prices in room or reception. Pool cold!

      Not a big deal, but we had no saucers for our cups in our room

    • Group of friends

      I liked the staff, they were all helpful and friendly. I liked the restuarant being part of the hotel as it was convenient. I liked that it was not too far from town and the university.

      I didn,t like the fact that the plug in the bathroom sink did not work. It was a twisty style plug and I had to take it out of the sink when washing my hands for example as the water did not run away. Decor was quite dark and old fashioned . Having said that if I had to visit Palmerston North again I would chose the coachman as its rates were reasonable, the staff were nice, food in the restaraunt was good and I liked the fact that the rooms were off the road area. I had previously stayed in a motel in Palmerston North and the rooms all opened up into the carpark which was not that pleasant and felt slightly unnerving when a strange car pulled up outside your room.

      Warm friendly and inviting, great unit and great resturant, best cooked venison and fillet steak ever and have had a few I might add. Over all experience very relaxing and will be back
