My partner and I loved our stay here. Great location, huge sized studio rooms with balconies and king sized bed. Lynda the owner was so friendly and very helpful. The rent was very good and rubbish collection, parking and use of washers/dryers were all included. The shared kitchens were always clean and the bus stop is less than five minutes walk away. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend The Mews to everyone. Thanks for everything Lynda! A&J
I am a student coming to the end of my study at Massey University. I was fortunate enough to house at the Mews for almost my entire stint here at Palmerston North. Apart from the amazing indoor and outdoor ambiance of the place, the management team at the Mews really really really gave 100% in terms of their looking after their tenants. Be sure to know that you will be getting your bang for your buck!
Great place to stay, I've been living here for a year and a half. It has everything you need. There are shared washing machines and dryers, a few big shared kitchens, each room has a little kitchen area though. The showers are always very hot. The rooms stay warm in the winter, but they also have heaters in. The windows are very big, letting lots of light in.
The rooms are very quiet, so for students they are perfect, and it's very close to Massey.
Great place, I would totally recommend it to anyone looking to work or study in Palmerston North.
I loved my time at the Mews. Perfect surroundings for me to achieve my study goals and also meet some great people along the way.
Linda provided me with an immaculate room and even helped me out with a few things I didn't own. As a student with very little spare money, this help was amazing and I couldn't have asked for anything better.
My room was spacious, light, and clean. Common rooms were kept to a high standard, and the park surroundings were always in fabulous condition to go outside to read under a tree or just for a walk to clear the head.
The price was reasonable, and it was comforting to know all bills had been paid with my set fee, it really took the stress out of my life.
Was sad to leave this great little part of my life on graduation and would FULLY recommend.
I'm an international student studying at Massey uni, and here is my opinion about the Mews ...
I have stayed at the Mews for two years and it was brilliant.
Here's what I love about the Mews:
The location is fantastic. It's within walking distance of Uni... "Peaceful"
The stuff are friendly, helpful and approachable.
The studio is fully furnished with incredible size. It has Queen bed, study table, sofa & TV and mini-kitchen with microwave and fridge. It is modern, spacious, and well fitted...
Facility: common rooms laundries and car parking
Finally would I stay here again? Sure ...
Keep doing what you are doing the Mews, y made my stay enjoyable and memorable...
I am a mature female student living at 'The Mews'. I first decided to live here because of its location to Massey University. I have lived here several months now and i adore this place as it is quiet, safe and secure. 2 minute drive to supermarket, ATM, and post office.
Lovely, clean and inviting studio units, even a king size bed!. I would recommend to all that want the best in accommodation and service as management are so friendly, warm and inviting... See you here soon then.
Regarding Mews Apartment, i agreed with Gregor. I'am also a student been living with my wife at Mews for more than one & half years. fantastic place where close to university, bus stop and most importantly happy quiet place. :). In term of interior apartment, found very please with the cleanliness and complete amenities been provided by the lovely owner Ms. Lynda MacDonald. Last time, I had an experience with water leaking in my room in the middle of the night, very fortunate to have Ms. Lynda was coming down to solve the problem immediately even though she's living far away in Fielding. Thanks again Lynda with very awesome hospitality. Thumbs up!!!!. I recommend for new student to experience the hospitality been provided at Mews Apartment. Reasonable $ for rent which including electricity & laundry. The best studio apartment in the town for the student. Dont have to worry about electricity bills and laundry. For sure, I'm gonna miss this place. One more things i'm gonna miss is most of the tenants are awesome which understand rules and privacy with others. In other word, you will feel safe to live here. :). Keep up a good work Lynda, I'm gonna miss MARSHALL 1(my apartment room) at MEWS for sure. ;).
I am a university student and I have stayed at the mews apartments the whole of last year (2013) , and I came back this year at the end of February and I am planning to stay until november. I decided to write a review simply because I think the review Nick_W gave is far from the truth in my view. I certainly wouldn't have come back if it is as he described it.
What I like about this place is the fact that it's close to the massey university, only a 5min walk. It's very quiet, the people that live here are either uni students, or hard working people who are pretty easy going. The owner, Lynda, is one of the nicest people I have come across. She is very friendly, and helpful (her door is always open) not just towards me but everyone that is living here.
In my view, the place is actually neat and tidy, When I moved in to my apartment, it' was spotless, however I do have to clean after myself if I want to keep it like that.
There's a cleaner who takes care of the common rooms and the outside, she cleans basically everything except your apartment. When I moved in I was also provided with the basic appliances, such as microwave, toaster, jug, heater and so on. Each house has also two laundries (each laundry has 3-4 wash machines, 3 driers) which you can use as often as you like from 10.00am - 10.00pm
Obviously I do not agree with Nick_W on any of the comments he made about the mews apartments, especially on the hygiene.
Personally, I like staying here, because you have your privacy whenever you wish/need, and on the other hand when you want to socialise, and have a bit of fun there's is always someone in the common room.
