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.

Stayed: July 2018

Very good motel. Basic studio unit was $95 but we opted for a road frontage, River view large unit at $110 per night. Very large kitchen lounge room with twin singles in and a separate bedroom with a Queen size bed. Good facilities. Easy walk to main street, Victoria Ave, past the P.S Waimarie berth (well worth a historic ride) and on to the restaurants/town centre. Clean, tidy and convenient. I will definitely use next time I visit Wanganui. Coincidentally, it is a hundred metres from where I born. Older motel but a gem. Friendly helpful hosts as well.

Room Tip: Upstairs was best. Very little road noise as it is a quiet town!

This motel was centrally located and easy to find. The service was great and welcoming. The room well equipped and very clean but a bit dated. The shower was great. The bed was a bit hard for me so I used the nice fluffy blanket as an under-blanket. Perhaps mattress topper could be offered on request. I am planning on returning to Whanganui later in the year and will happily stay here again.

A large studio , modern and very clean. We had 2 dogs with us and they made us feel very welcome. Nice and quiet . Just the other side of the river is a great reserve with lovely trees. Only a 5 min walk in to town to various eateries. Very good experience.

Great motel. Good location by the river with lovely walks but also a short walk to town for dining out. Clean, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Great place to stay in Wanganui. Would definitely stay again.
