“Great motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

we have just had a night in this lovely motel as part of the forgotten World Rail Trail trip.
Michael picked us up in Statford & drove us to Wanganui. He pointed out places of interest on the way which we appreciated.
Our unit was very comfortable & very well appointed. Michael told us about a restaurant very near by which we really enjoyed.
Our continental breakfast was in our room when we got back from dinner.
This was great as we were able to have breakfast when it suited us. It was a very nice breakfast.
A fantastic place to spend the night after being on the carts.
Would thoroughly recommend to anyone.
Thanks Michael & Prue

Stayed November 2014, traveled with friends

We came to Wanganui as part of the Forgotten World Rail Epic adventure. This motel was booked for us and after two days railway carting it was such a nice place to 'recuperate' ready for two days jet boating. The motel is very up to date, very comfortable and our host and hostess were very obliging and hospitable. A very nice motel indeed.

Happy to recommend. Good friendly service, handy to all that you need including supermarkets, town, sports venue and the main road. Room 7 near back of motel suited us and that there was "no vacancy" two nights in a row when the other motels we saw had 'Vacancy' was probably a reasonable sign, this is one of the better places in Wanganui.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are best away from State Highway 3

Thank you for your feedback we appreciate it. Being close to SH3 can be disconcerting, however our guests such as yourselves are pleasantly surprised that the traffic noise is not as disruptive as initially thought. We have hush glass and hebel sound proofing. We hope you enjoy the rest of your Kiwi stay. Kind Regards Michael & Prue Meehan

I am a rep and spend quite a few nights in different motels, and never in Wanagnui due to my call cycle. On the Wednesday morning of the 15th October I received a call from my brother advising me that our Mum had passed away, and as I had overnighted in New Plymouth I was not to far away. Of course this meant we both needed accomodation in Wanganu for a number of days, and after searching Host Accomodation in Wanganui, 151 on London came up first.
I am pleased I chose 151 on London, because both Prue and Michael were extremely helpful and always went that extra mile to accomodate any of our needs.
If I ever have to overnight in Wanganui this Motel would be my only choice as the rooms are well appointed, clean and tidy.
On behalf of our family I cannot thank Prue and Michael enough for their friendly, warm and caring attitude.

My wife and I traveled through Wanganui on our NZ trip and stayed at this beautiful little motel. The rooms are very well thought out and incredibly well presented and clean. This is what NZ hospitality is all about...thank you for always being willing to help and having a genuinely happy attitude whilst doing so, you are lovely people! We'll most definitely be recommending this motel and their fantastic hospitality to others. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
*Our previous few nights stay in Tongariro was awful and their staff were rude and judgemental...you should consider taking on hospitality training for those so called upper class hotels :)*

Nothing but praise for this place. Our extended family have been accommodated at short notice twice in the last 12 months. On both occasions the service has been outstanding. Rooms & facilities could not be faulted. Cafe next door an added bonus. Large friendly kids area as well

Thank you for your feedback we appreciate it. We always aim to meet our guests needs and feel we did this well with your group. Having lots of space and a children's playground is great for the children to run off their excess energy:) We wish your family well.
