We stopped here for one night. The price was very good and the staff friendly. The unit was spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Nice being next to the river to go for a leisurely walk as well

Nice, simple motel set up. Lovely staff and welcome, free parking and good WiFi. The room is a little cold this time of year and no heaters on offer, but hot water always available. Would stay again if I were in town.

Description
We are Mark (a local from Whanganui) and Karen (from Ireland). We will be pleased to recommend you our favourite places to eat, the things in Wanganui that you absolutely shouldn't miss and hope you will have a More great stay with us! Our motel is the closest one to town; depending if you want to take the 'scenic route' along the river or the more direct 'residential' way you could be in our main street within 5 -10 minutes walk. Restaurants and cafes are all within walking distance, so are the historic riverboats that go up the Whanganui river, the art galleries, the museum etc. Our motel has 15 different units; are you looking for low-cost, for a room with a view, for a family unit or for a unit with a spa bath; we have it all!
