About the 5th stay again for an annual golf tournament where 'The Collegiate' as we call it just works a treat for us. Everyone staying there in what are comfortable rooms and able to hold the Saturday dinner in the restaurant as well- no driving for anyone. The 'Round House' in the middle lends itself well to a larger group... More

I was pleasantly surprised with my room at the Quality Inn Collegiate. I had a queen + single room which had been recently renovated, the decor and layout of room was very good and price reasonable. The bathroom was clean and appeared to have been partially updated. The main gripe with the room was that there was no power point... More

The reception staff were friendly. The room was spacious and clean. The room was cold and it took a while to finally workout how to change the air conditioning to heat the room. The restaurant is terrible. Absolutely not worth risking another meal in there ever again. The most god forsaken bunch of meat and vegetables that have ever been... More

My wife and I stayed one night, a Saturday. When I made the booking by phone, I asked for a quiet room as I'm a very light sleeper. I was told all the studios were at the rear of the complex and were therefore quiet. However, we were put in the one right next to the laundry and boiler room... More

Stayed for 5 nights with a group. Could not fault staff or venue. free wi-fi is very quick, easy to set up. Breakfast was good, very filling. The only thing that could be altered is the fridge door on unit 12 opens wrong way, it is a simple job to change over. Over all a very pleasant stay.

This is a review on the restaurant only of this establishment. We have had a very good meal here in the past. Whether the chef or ownership has changed, I do not know, but the meal was very average, bland and over cooked. I had the baked fish and it was tough and all pretty much dumped onto the plate....

The staff are mostly friendly (the Frenchman in the bar excluded) but its a pretty dark and tired hotel. The studio unit has the ubiquitous fridge that clicks, whines and hums through the night. Sky reception is a bit dodgy. Bathrooms are classic 1970s! Restaurant is ok, but very old school. Free wifi so happy with that. Visit the gym....a... More

I enjoyed my stay in Wanganui. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable and affordable, the meals and service excellent and the office staff very helpful. The situation was good, just off the main street and adjacent to the well known Collegiate College with its English styled buildings and impressive chapel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends.
