This is a brilliant motel. The units are very spacious, comfortable and immaculately clean. The beds are super comfy and we had two lazy boy chairs in the living room. Plenty of parking outside the unit, very close to the city and walks down by the river. Free wi-fi too. Very friendly owners. Highly recommended as the best place to... More

This motel is conveniently located, has ample parking space, and local takeaway outlets if you don't want to wander too far for an easy meal. The room was immaculate, absolutely clean, and equipped with all the basics. The bed was comfortable, there were two comfortable armchairs in the living room, and the hot water was copious and instantly hot. We... More

What a delight. These units are very roomy ,comfortable and spotlessly clean. Even the paint work seems to glow. ... i mean the whole place is pristine. The beds are very comfortably and the bed linen was beautiful. One could not ask for better at this price and remember this motel is also animal friendly. At night there are twinkling... More

Having just spent a few days going round the west coast of the north island we found this motel the best place we stayed during our trip. It was clean, very comfortable, had lazy boys type chairs, (which makes a change from the hard type in most motels). I would recommend it.

Trevor and Luz are very friendly hosts where nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Close to various eateries and easy access in and out of Wanganui. I will definitely be back.

We found the motel by accident but it proved to be one of the best in our month long travels around New Zealand. Comparatively cheap, large room, free WiFI, Sky TV and absolutely spotlessly clean. What more could you want? The town is a pleasant little place and the regional museum there worth a visit.
