    Stayed 2 nights, great double spa pool, heat pump, great comfy bed. Staff were very friendly and service great. Everything in motel you could want. Supermarkets next door and nice club just up road. We will certainly stay again.

    This is not a cheap option for Whanganui. It was really cold when we arrived and it took an hour to get some heat into the room, the heat pump was "reset" several times. It would have been nice to check into a warm room....More

    WOW! The Aotea Lodge is beautiful, rooms are really well appointed and the kids LOVED the double spa bath. Our kids were attending a football tournament so we treated this like a mini holiday and wanted somewhere a bit fancy to stay - Aotea Lodge...More

    The Motor Lodge was very nicely appointed,and staff very friendly.. however the Management was poor....and unavailable. Travelled seven hours for a wedding and were kept awake most of night with a out of control party in next unit... until police came at 3am. Smoke alarms...More
