The staff is very nice and give us lot of help. When we arrived, he told us everything about the city and share everything he likes. The kitchen have all of the things you need, and there have a water filter, it's very happy to see it. We are very like this apartment.

I thought I was getting a cheap en suite room but discovered it was a hostel which wasn't clear in advertising. However, it was clean and tidy and the staff very friendly. Theere is nothing else to say but the review thing wants 200 characters!

I enjoyed my stay at Anndion lodge, staying in the Glasshouse Suite. It was tastefully decorated, had a wonderful conservatory and outside deck area. It was a good size, with a large bathroom. The only thing stopping this review from being 5 stars was the bed. It was advertised as a "King Size Bed" however no where was it advertised...

Thank you for your feedback which is most appreciated. The king bed in this room is a hopsitality king which is zip together for both mattress and base. This allows dual function. It is regretful that you found this uncomfortable as we have not experienced this comment in the past. However, all feedback allows us to monitor guest perceptions and...

We stayed in the poolside bungalow which was on its own at the back of the property, well away from the busy road. It was very quiet, had its own separate entrance. The unit was well equipped with heaters. There was a very pleasant outlook over the BBQ garden area from the dining area and both the lounge and bedroom...

Great friendly welcome on arrival, my room was fantastic with comfy bed and linen and room was immaculate. I was impressed with great kitchen and big lounge and huge tv and owner was over to light fire in lounge which just gave it that homely feeling. Will definitely stay there next time I am back in wanganui.

Double Lodge Room was very small. The bed was pushed right against the wall so if you are the unlucky one to sleep near the wall, you have to inconvenience the other person if you need to get out of bed. Communal showers are claustrophobic, the cubicles were the smallest I have ever experienced and I am a small person!...

Thank you for your feedback, which we value. It is always disappointing when guests do not feel they received value for money. Your original booking was for 2 persons - but your party was infact 5 persons. The additional guests were accommodated in one of our self contained units which we trust you enjoyed as no comment was made on...

Treated with respect, kindness and great hospitality I could easily say this is one of the best backpackers I've been in NZ. Cosy sleeping rooms, big tv in the tv room, swimming pool, kitchen and bathrooms are crystal clean.

“I prefer a soft top bed. It was a bit firm, however my husband had no problem. (call me a softie) I slept on the single bed. The room was enjoyable. There was a tv in the room so we could just have peace and quiet when we needed it.”
