“Great Place to Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2007

In march 2007 my Husband, Our 7 Year Old Son and I stayed at the Chancellor Motor Lodge and Conference Centre in Palmerston North for 3 nights while my husband was at a work Conference which was held there.

It was a really good experience, we were given a warm welcome when we arrived and were told that if we needed extra of the complimentry milk they would happily give it to us! That doesnt happen often when staying at Motels/Hotels/Motor Lodges.

The unit was really clean, the towels were nice and fluffy as well as plentiful. There was plenty of parking and we were given bubble bath as well to use in the spa bath.

We ordered breakfast as well which was really nice and beautifully presented.

The people who owned the Motor Lodge were just SO friendly to us, and they even gave us complimentry use of the washing machine and drier, when it is usually $5.00 to use. They were really lovely people.

The Motor Lodge was so clean that outside the doors, it is cobbled and the cleaners were vacumming outside on those cobbles. This Motor Lodge is Modern, Homely and very clean, they have little outdoor areas at the back of the units with a small outdoor table and chairs which was a nice touch. They also had outdoor chairs at the front of our unit which our son often sat on to blow bubbles with his bubble fun set!

Another good point about this Motor Lodge is it is within walking distance to Palmerston North City, my Son and I went for a walk into The City each day.

My only complaint about The Chancellor Motor Lodge & Conference Centre is that the walls are paper thin and we could hear talking in the Unit next to ours as well as the TV going, and it was really clear.

But it is definatly a nice place to stay if you want to stay somewhere modern and clean with friendly owners and close to the City!

  • Liked — Cleanlieness , Close to The City
  • Disliked — Thin walls (hearing people in the unit next to ours)
  • Stayed March 2007, travelled on business
