Had 2 nights here for the triathlon and the manawatu walking weekend. Very good, clean rooms. Owners so friendly and helpful. Much needed spa bath after a good walk. Easy walk into town for meals. Will definitely go back.

Thank you for your great feedback Ruth. We are pleased the weather was kind for the whanau triathlon weekend and that your weary bones were able to be soothed in our luxury spa bath. Congratulations on your event and we look forward to your next visit with us.

Company booked this hotel for us while visiting a firm in Foxton. Very courteous and pleasant staff. Great breakfast included and staff told us where to go for good food (dinner) around town. Very clean and modern facilities. Highly recommended and will be back when in Palmy.

A great place to stay when in Palmerston North. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very roomy and comfortable. Close to CBD - very walkable distance. Quiet and clean. Will come again. Well priced. Really no more to say but hopefully this sentence will take me to 200 letter so I can submit

Thank you for your very positive feedback. We enjoy being able to provide our guests comfortable accommodation at affordable prices.

My family stayed in the two bedroom apartment for two days recently. We received a warm welcome from the owners after a long drive from Rotorua. The room was very clean, spacious and well equipped. My parents especially appreciated that we were in a downstairs apartment. The bathroom was clean and very spacious and we enjoyed the full spa bath...

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. Our Family suites are very well suited for all groups. Being at the rear of the property with a private outdoor area also helps guests feel like they're in a holiday home not a motel complex, as quiet and isolated as they might wish to be. All the spaces are a good...

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...

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...

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...

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...
