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

Stayed here now on a couple of ocassions and love this place. The rooms are spacious and have everything there you need if you want to cook for yourself. Great restaurants just down the road however and only a 5 minute walk into town. The owners are very welcoming and hospitable. You will enjoy the Chancellor. This is a great... 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. 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.
