The New Railway Hotel is a must see in Palmerston North. Established in 1904 the New Railway Hotel has been a familiar place to hundreds of long term stayers and travellers over the years. Having been refurbished to include all the modern comforts that travellers expect, while retaining its historic roots, The New Railway Hotel is backpacker accommodation that's different. Still providing both short and long term choices, it combines convenience and comfort with honest Kiwi hospitality. The hotel is now run by the affable, well-travelled Garry, who has a comprehensive background in the hotel industry, and is experienced in all things related to NZ tourism and travel.
