Great place to stay - turned up after a six hour drive and it was no trouble to check in early (our room was unoccupied the previous night. Welcoming staff & room lovely and warm on a colder night. Great parking for our larger SUV.

Arrived and had a good reception and shown to our room which was very spacious. We didn't have an evening meal there but the continental breakfast set us up for the day. The bar staff and breakfast serving staff were very welcoming.

My wife and I had dined at the Rutland Arms on an earlier visit. This time we combined a birthday celebration with the restaurant and a hotel bed. The accommodation was very comfortable in a large room with very high ceilings. We had booked to dine and that was sensible. Even though it was mid-week, the dining room was well... More

This hotel is a modernised version of its grander past with large high ceilinged rooms on the upper floor above the pub/restaurant, which is handy for meals and room service. On a corner of the main street and a block from the river, its location is excellent. The only constructive feedback is that the net curtains were torn and the... More

We have just spent the weekend at the Rutland Arms Inn with a small group from our car club. It was a lovely experience. Every staff member we had contact with was friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The continental breakfast included in the room rate was exactly what we like to have for breakfast. We... More

The Rutland Arms is a lovely old hotel in a heritage building in central Wanganui. There are only 8 suites but the high ceilings and style of period furnishing were immediately agreeable on entering the room for the first time. The bathroom was bright and featured a shower over spa bath. Staying during summer the rooms get very warm which... More

Stayed here for only one night unfortunately, very welcoming staff, lovely quiet room with comfy bed. Good selection of food in the bar which was excellently cooked. An excellent selection of draught beers. We had a small breakfast but could have had a full cooked, looked very good. Would definitely recommend this hotel, and hope to visit again one day.

I am surprised these guys aren't higher on the top hotel list. I absolutely loved everything about it. My gran and I stayed on a weekend visit and it was perfect. The room itself was huge and the beds were super comfy, we both slept like logs. I enjoyed the simple but very filling breakfast which was included in the... More

My partner and I stayed for two nights. A filling continental breakfast was included. The suites above the restaurant and bar are each of a classic Victorian setting, a staff member offered a viewing of the complete upstairs; suite 8 was the largest and classed as the honey moon suite. We excersised room service and particularly enjoyed the menu selection... More
