Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great spacious and comfortable 2bdrm apartment for the family. Lots of room for everyone to move around in, very clean and tidy with comfy beds. Kids loved the spa. Very convenient and only a 5 min walk to town and takeaway restaurants. Highly recommend 👌 the Chancellor. Hosts are lovely and friendly.

Stayed for 1 night with the kids for a family 21st in town. Great accommodation. I didn't book the room, I just knew it slept 4 and would cost a out $210. So surprised when we walked into a 1 bedroom apartment with a spa bath! Very clean and tidy. Close to town. Can't fault it. Recommend you book it!

Very clean and very spacious, the hosts were very friendly, however I really should of done a bit of research before I booked as the windows did not have double glazing so were very wet and had water streaming down by the morning,and the noise from the road kept us awake most of the night, I could not fault the cleanliness and the quality of the bed linen and towels were excellent.We will be travelling to Palmerston North many times again however this motel will not be one to stay in again as I could not put up with such a noisy road.

I called relatively last minute to book, I am in a wheelchair so usually stay in accessible rooms. I spoke to someone on the phone & decided to book anyway, I’m so glad I did, apart from the one step (which they told me about) the room was perfect, the bathroom sink was even accessible. The only thing I would change is that the curtains were lightweight so didn’t block out a lot & they didn’t want to completely close without gaps. Other than that; great location, very large, great parking, accommodating, friendly, clean, tidy, good amenities, up kept & overall a great stay.

We booked 2 rooms for one night. Amazing hosts that should be very proud of the business they run. Very clean and comfortable rooms which are very reasonably priced. I just hope the mother-inlaw in her own room didn't take all the tea bags and lollies!!!
