Our History

The Cobb Hotel has historic associations with Palmerston North – it was the city’s first school. In 1890 the school was relocated and the building was converted into a hotel. It has been a popular hotel for both local residents and visitors to the city. Our 15 rooms are comfortable and tidy. They have ensuite bathrooms, tea/coffee making facilities and Freeview TV. Located in the city centre makes for an easy stroll to shopping and inner city attractions. The bar and bistro downstairs is one of the most popular bars in town and we also boast having Palmerston North’s only balcony bar. We’re perfect for individuals or groups looking to stay and enjoy the great night life of Palmerston North. We look forward to welcoming you soon
