    Where to stay in Manawatu-Wanganui Region

    Palmerston North, a busy and attractive university city, offers the highest concentration of accommodations in the region. A diverse range of hotels, motels, campsites, and backpacker hostels encircle the city center and its famous clocktower. Farther out, accommodations are more basic and cost-effective. Outside this urban center, the region has plentiful RV parks, coastal lodges, and roadside motels.
