Overall very pleasant, with a very nice barbecue area for those wishing to cook up a social barbie. Our bed was a bit on the tired side, and the self-serve Continental breakfast was a bit 1970's. Although the plastic-packaged cornflakes had a use-by date of November 2016, the date appears to have been overly-optimistic as they were stale. Staff lovely,... More

Just a nice place to stay. If I stayed again I would ask for a room with facilities but still pleased with the room we got although a bit small. Had a great talk to our host who has a lot of knowledge about lots of things and a pleasure to talk with

Kiaora, I had the pleasure of staying in a corporate suite (The Glasshouse) and it is the females dream room. The bathroom was exceptional with lights above the mirror to put on makeup, the placing of the socket for the hairdryer was accessible to the mirror, everything was at my fingertips.

Lots of room to spread out here, because it's set up more for weddings or group events. Big kitchen and living area common areas. We had a very pleasant room overlooking the... More

On my way to Auckland I needed a place to stay. Just booked it and was positively surprised. Owner example for good host and service. Not too far from town centre. Small parking lot but ample facilities on the road.

We found it very friendly. It was well set out and nicely furnished and most comfortable. It is pleasantly situated and across the road from the Whanganui River which is accessed across a park. A lovely, hot breakfast was served to us. The stay was a good price.
