I was there for 2 weeks, found the rooms very clean and the staff friendly. Even though I was there for work, I would have no hesitation in staying there if I was there on holidays. The room had everything I needed to make my stay very comfortable. The shower was always hot and the heater worked well. Having the... More

This unit was a little disappointing for us. Noisy even though some double glazing was in evidence. Bad TV reception. Kitchenette was rather compact. Maybe we expect too much but rate rate this as a lesser motel within its category. A McDonalds is within easy walk.

I have a new favourite motel for Wanganui my usual was nice (and booked out when I needed a place at short notice) but this place is perfect. Great price and super clean and easy to get to, staff are friendly and happy to help. Showers are really roomy beds are medium-firm and lots of pillows and decor is all... More

Friendly welcome at reception, lovely renovations to the property. There are some very new units too - I'll try one of those next time I'm in Wanganui. I found the unit was very clean. These are renovated - probably ex-1970s but very contemporary now. Comfy at an excellent price. The only quirk is SKY TV. All but one movie channel... More

We booked the 2 bedroom unit, and it was fine for us. Liked the leather ezi-chairs, not quite lazy-boys but close enough! Our room was at the end where the trucks tend to park, but to be honest we didn't hear them leave. Our trip was only for a few days, but we were made to feel welcome by the... More

We hadnt booked the Gateway, just turned up looking for a room. The reception was welcoming. The room was nice, clean and modern and the bed very comfortable. A couple of nice touches were chilled water in glass bottles in the fridge and the milk was delivered in a pretty china jug rather than the carton. For a well priced... More

Good Clean Comfortable, Warm Unit, only problem bathroom very small. There was four of us staying for one night in two bedroom unit, which was ok. Would recommend this accommodation to any other travellers, wishing to stay there,not too far from the restaurants, as Wanganui is quite easy to travel around.
