All in all, a good budget option if you can overlook the dated rooms & facilities. Tidy, cheap & convenient to Wanganui CBD. Clare, the lady who dealt with my booking was cheerful & very helpful. Wi-Fi works good & I got a good sleep. Would stay again.

Booked here through Booking.com. Info there said it had a Restaurant on site which attracted me. Upon checking in found out Restaurant is no longer in operation. Room we had was very dated but I must say was clean, bed we used was very comfortable. Bathroom, plumbing etc was very old but clean and worked very well. Room was larger... More

Good things: (1) location, for shops, downtown and food. (2) price: the cheapest stay we had in NZ; (3) welcome: helpful receptionist. (4) free wifi BUT ... room was outdated (built-in radio in the bedside cabinet is a give-away (it didn't work)). It was one of the only two motels of our trip where the bathroom basin doubled as the... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights. Check in was friendly and although the room looked 'mature' we were surprised that the cost was only $89 dollars a night. A motel close to it wanted $138. The room was clean and an apology was given that the TV was not receiving all the channels it should. The kettle failed... More

Stayed for one night as a last minute arrangement. Cost was $104 for three people. The place was clean and tidy. Decor is seriously outdated with yellow walls and cane furniture. Sound proofing wasn't good but luckily the people around us were all pretty quiet anyway. Immediately located near a couple of supermarkets, mcdonalds etc. Free wifi. Reception staff were... More

Stayed at a downstairs studio which had a connecting door to the next unit (making it less sound proof). It was a long weekend and past midnight on both nights some young women were talking loudly in the courtyard. Room was clean but getting a bit tired. Location was central to supermarket and fastfood places. The kitchenette was handy for... More
