I stay here regularly when travelling the region and the first time I walked in the door the couple who welcomed me were so friendly and helpful, plus we have a liking for the same complimentary lollies. Gillen has always accommodated me to suggesting local restaurants, putting a cooker in my room when hubby came along and will always carry... More

I stayed here one night on business. The room was spacious, well laid out and well lit. I had an upstairs room and it was very quiet. The service was friendly. Breakfast was good, reasonably priced and arrived punctually. The only problem was that I did find the room extremely cold - the heater wouldn't operate except on a timer... More

I had to travel to Palmerston North to conduct job interviews. As we do not have an office here I booked an apartment at the Chancellor Motor Lodge & Conference Centre with a separate lounge area. I could not have been happier with the quality of the apartment, the location and the service I received. The owners even assisted me... More

We could have chosen any one of several places in the street but somehow this one stood out and we were not disappointed. My husband had a broken wrist so they carried our bags to the room. It was spotlessly clean - likely the cleanest place we have ever stayed. It was quiet (which we really wanted). The breakfast was... More

Had two nights here and loved it. Walking distance to the city to restaurants & attractions. Gillan & Karen were great hosts. Unit was quiet, very clean and the bed comfortable. Also complimentary wi-fi. Will stay here again.

For accommodation, this place is hard to beat. Easy walking distance to the city centre, and reasonably priced, the unit is luxurious. It has a very large living area with dining, living, a well equipped kitchen, and study area, along with a window wall to a balcony with a nice leafy view. Lounge and bedroom have TV sets. Adjacent is... More

This place is in an excellent location, close to the square and a short walk from the big shopping mall. We were greeted by the very friendly hosts, who quickly solved a minor problem with there being no single bed in the one bedroom unit we had booked. Our unit was located on a corner of the second story, and... More

We were greeted with warmth by Louise, family to the owners, who took great care of us. We had a two bedroom apartment that was so spacious, there was almost enough room for a dance floor in the lounge, and the bedrooms and bathroom were also to scale.
