Thank you, we are so pleased your stay with us at Chancellor was so enjoyable. The spaciousness of the suites is something many guests enjoy and the level of comfort also. We appreciate that sometimes the feather-down pillows are not suited to everyone. Hopefully among the extra pillows in the wardrobe a suitable alternative is found. Yes, a nice soothing and relaxing spa at the end of a long day is just the ticket to unwind and we are pleased to be able to offer the extra comfort of these in a number of our suites. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

really enjoyed this place, lovely and clean and very comfortable. Very handy to town centre, easy walking distance. Friendly staff and owner. Just one little thing, I felt 2 towels per day for 2 people wasnt enough and neither was 4 sachets of coffee, otherwise very, very good.

Room Tip: We stayed in the unit with the double spa bath and it was lovely

I have stayed at the Chancellor Motor Lodge several times. The hosts are very welcoming and friendly. The units are spacious and modern with wonderful spa baths. The thing I am most impressed with is the units are spotlessly clean. The beds are very comfortable. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Palmerston North. Town, mall,restaurants and supermarket are within walking distance.

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
