“Nice buzz at 151 on London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed here while attending a conference in June - so in the middle of winter. The owners were very approachable and helpful and the accommodation is great. It was built in 2009 so it is well insulated with proper heating and sound-proofing. Bed was comfy which tends to be a problem for my partner so that was a plus - and plenty of pillows are provided. Multiple supermarkets and take-aways are close by but I really loved the cafe on the premises - Kristy's. Just 20 steps to get that morning coffee! So much better than a hotel restaurant. I worked remotely here from breakfast to 4pm and the proprietors were just very hospitable and they run a great business. The Kristy's pies are out of this world - you really should get some chilled ones to take home.

Room Tip: The room had a double spa bath. This worked out great, as did the extra space from having the bedroo...

We came to Wanganui and stayed one night. Three adults and two kids fitted perfectly into the 2 bedroom apartment. The room and hotel maintain a modern and classy, yet welcoming feel and there is everything you need for a 4 year old and 19 month old (we brought our own portacot). The hotel even has its own play area - which was a selling point for us even though we didn't get to use it. Great location and very friendly staff - highly recommend!

Was here for a few weeks with work so I spent over a week in a studio, and a week in a one bedroom. The studios are a good size for a couple of nights. Cooking facilities are OK in the studio and very good in the one bedrooms. Bathroom is good in the studio and excellent in the one bedrooms with spa baths. The one bedrooms have a dining table as well which is great. The units are quite new, clean, and well appointed. Beds are very comfortable. The owners are great, genuinely friendly. There is a cafe basically onsite as well which sells the meanest of pies. I would def stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a unit at the back if road noise bothers you

I stayed here for 3 weeks excluding weekends while on placement in Wanganui. The service was great and they were all very friendly and helpful: She helped to show me on a map where I needed to go the next day and even short cuts to get there. The place itself was really nice and rooms were cleaned to a great standard every day. I was in a compact room and it was perfect for what I was there for. Cafe has great hot chocolates next door but would be great if it was open later in to the evening - maybe even for dinner. Would definitely recommend.

We stopped over in Wanganui for just 1 night & were tired & hungry when we pulled up. Got a very warm & efficient welcome from Pru & in no time at all we were inside having a well deserved wine. Very clean, spacious room with lots of unexpected little extras like make up remover pads! Very close to town but we experienced no road noise. By far & away the best Motel we stayed at on our trip. A real gem.

Room Tip: We stayed in a downstairs room which was great to park out the front making it easy to bring your ba...

We stayed for two nights over a weekend. Amenities were spotless, a great shower and quiet - no inter room noise which is rare in Motels.
Stylish and comfortable. Very welcoming and good service.
Helpful having a cafe on the premise for brekky and can recommend that too.
Would definitely stay again.

We stayed for a saturday night with two young kids so booked a family 2 level suite. The rooms impress with above average fittings and fantastic shower , a decent heatpump runs quietly in the downstairs lounge and easily alao heats upstairs bedrooms which were spacious and comfortable. As a family we were conscious of kids creating noise but thoughtful management ensured gaps between rooms ao we actually relaxed! Playground on site was good to. Next time as a couple we will have a coffee at the nice looking cafe next door, and we WILL be back.
