10/10 Exceptional

We were visiting Palmerston North for a family member’s funeral. Spacious studio, well designed and walking distance to row funeral chapel and CBD. Our only criticism was thin walls through which we were disturbed by the neighbours’s TV ( which was turned off as soon as we complained with a bang on the wall).
