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... More

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.

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... More

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... More

I had two nights in the Chancellor this month. The first night was sharing with a friend in a two bedroom unit. The lounge area was HUGE but only one two seater/sofa. Only one bathroom. Simple kitchen which worked well. The second night was in a studio unit - much smaller and more like a hotel room. Fine, but with... More

Hi Lynda, We enjoyed hosting you and your friend during tournament week. Yes our two bedroom apartments are HUGE and loungers, sofas can get lost in the space. We hope you also made use of the double spa bath in the apartment. You are quite right, our studio units are the perfect size for couples or singles wanting to spoil... More

Thank you for this wonderful feedback. We try to make everyone's stay as good as possible and appreciate that an efficient check in process is important. We're pleased you were able to indulge in a spa before retiring for the night and there's nothing like a freshly cooked, hot breakfast to start you off again after a good night's sleep.... More
