Brilliant stay
When we came to this property we were made as welcome as members of the family. We bought our 2 labs and Bob, their dog was very friendly. We went on walks by the river which is an brilliant asset for Palmerston North. Great conversations, 👌 facilities. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone coming to the Manawatu 🙂
