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. The space, spa, modern fittings and comfortable/clean furniture ensured we had one... More

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

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... More

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.
