We had a one night stopover when driving from Wellington to New Plymouth and chose to break the journey here. We arrived late, but the hosts simply couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. The motel suite was fantastic with a huge bedroom, a large lounge/dining area and fantastic bathroom with an enormous spa bath. Sadly, we could only stay... More

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.

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... More

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.

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
