We stayed a night recently whilst briefly in Palmerston North. It was a wonderful motel, clean, warm and easy.. Friendly staff, loved the spa bath and overall a neat place to stay. Definitely
we would stay again.

Room Tip: We were upstairs and was great but prob just as good downstairs!?

Thank you for your great review. It is always nice to hear that guests have enjoyed the ease of staying with us and the comfort of the suites. Perhaps your next visit could be accommodated in one of our luxurious downstairs suites, until then...

We recently stayed at the Chancellor Motor Lodge for 5 nights to attend our niece's wedding. Everything about our stay at the Chancellor was just perfect - the location (within walking distance from shops etc), size of the suite (ours was a 2 bedroom suite downstairs. It was nice & spacious & well laid out), amenities (great to have clean towels every day) and the hosts, Gillen & Karen, were the best, so helpful & friendly. We live in Melbourne and it was great to have their input / expertise about the local area if we needed any advice. It really was a home away from home. We loved it and look forward to staying there again on our next visit.... Thank you, Gillen & Karen.

Room Tip: Our unit was a corner unit on the ground floor and we can recommend it if you have a guest who has p...

Thank you, we are so pleased your stay with us at Chancellor was so enjoyable.

Karen and I always do our best to ensure guests' stays are pleasurable and well catered. It is important to us, that our guest rooms and amenities are of very good quality and that throughout a guest's stay these quality standards are maintained.

"Home away from home" is high praise indeed and we do endeavour to provide a similar experience to all our guests. Until your next stay with us, your Palmerston North home will be warmly waiting.

We stayed just the one night at the Chancellor Hotel. We were very impressed. Excellent location, spotlessly clean, spacious unit and very friendly staff, and an excellent rate. I'd stay there from now on whenever I visit this fascinating city.

Room Tip: The corner room upstairs had two outside verandahs and a twin spa bath

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here whilst visiting Palmerston North, in fact when we knew we were coming we had no other place in mind, we even got given the same room. Clean, spacious, white fluffy towels, there is nothing negative I can say about this place....a thumbs up again :D

We had a wonderful relaxing two night stay recently. Lovely, quiet location and a 5-10 mins walk into town, which we did numerous times for activities, shopping, walks and dinners - didn't use the car at all. Clean, tidy, good sized room with comfortable bed. Hosts were welcoming and helpful. Plenty of parking at the door. Nice small outdoor patio area in our downstairs room. Great breakfasts - excellent way to start the day!

Arriving here after driving down from New Plymouth, visiting the fascinating Whanganui on the way, we were well pleased to end up in this very high quality motel. The owners are really lovely, welcoming people and try hard to ensure your stay is a good one. The Chancellor also provided the perfect base to visit this interesting university town, and it lovely surrounds including the jaw dropping Manawatu Gorge.
Like many of the accommodations in New Zealand, the Chancellor offers very high standards at very affordable rates, and we would like to thanks Rex of the Landmark in New Plymouth for his recommendation.

Room Tip: Ours was a well appointed, quiet room on the upper floor

Thank you for your great review, we are very pleased your stay was an enjoyable one. Great also, that you were able to enjoy some of the attractions the Manawatu has to offer, the Gorge walk is becoming increasingly popular with visitors as are other nature walks around the region.

Thank you also for your recognition of the quality we endeavour to provide every guest, both in service and room appointments. We are pleased you felt you were provided a great experience and that our property met your expectations.
