“Great hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2009

Following a recommendation in the "Lonely Planet", we found that Anndion Lodge most certainly lived up to expectations. Not only was the accommodation comfortable, reasonably priced and spotlessly clean, but hosts Ann and Dion were very friendly and extremely helpful.

The wonderful gem that is anndion is the homely atmosphere and hosts who are welcoming, friendly and love running anndion lodge. This is a place to meet new people and stay in a place that feels like home. The rooms are clean and this is a great place to stay. I would recommend this lodge to all friends and family.

This beautifully laid out lodge is tastefully decorated and well laid out. I felt at home as soon as my partner and i arrived as Ann and Dion the owners are really friendly and welcoming. Our room was one of their lower priced ones but it was really very nice. it had its own flat screen tv etc and it was exceptionally clean. Ann and Dion can not do enough for you and are very attentive but also it feels like they are not always around you either so you still feel you have privacy. Just the right balance really. They have a beautiful dining area inside and out, with a swimming pool and hot tub as well as free internet on the computers. They also have a very clean kitchen if you want to cook yourself but they also offer meals on an inhouse menu. This place is really worth your time and money. Thank you Ann and Dion

What a fantasic place to stay. You feel straight away at home here, Ann and Dion have created a perfect place with the most comforting and warm welcome and treatment during your stay, we stayed 3 days instead of 1 because we lovd it there so much, spotleess house, spotless beautiful lounge and kitchen. Dion will go and turn on the spa when ever you fancy and introduce guests to each other (a nice touch! He proberly call you "young" which is sweet. Free internet, stack of home cinema and plazmas in each room. and a bargain.
I really cant say enough good things about Anndion lodge. I f I go back to NZ and im anywhere near Wanganui ill be straight back .
me and my partner where staying in doubles in hostels up to this point, which were usually between £50-£58 and we stayed here for about an extra £10 each,Well worth I assure you. Go there and see.

We stayed here for one night in January on our way to Rotorua. We had a beautiful room, comfortable bed, nice ensuite bathroom. Dion was very welcoming and went out of his way to explain everything to us.

Wanganui was a nice little town, and we would be happy to visit again.

  • Liked — Free internet access
  • Disliked — Breakfast was not included in accomodation - would have been an extra nice touch.

As soon as you step into this place it has an atmosphere that is so welcoming. The decor of the rooms is really beautiful, very homely but high quality and has a really special warmth about it. All the little things that are around make it unique to the Anndion Lodge. Our hosts Ann and Dion were very helpful and friendly and would even go the extra mile for their guests. The location is great just across the road from the Whanganui River gives the guest nice scenery to view, with a walkway right beside the river so you can get out and have a good look around enjoy the clean fresh air and the freedom to wonder. I definitely will go back to stay in the future and will encourage anyone else to stay there whenever possible and enjoy the "Home away from Home" at the "Anndion Lodge"

One is always anxious to see their accomodation when they set off on holiday. I had never been to the "Anndion Lodge" before so I di not know what to expect. As soon as we arrived and walked up the path, then the stairs and into the lounge, you just felt at home straight away. The ornaments were very well chosen, the decore beutiful and the owners warm and friendly people who made you feel like you had known them forever. The bedroom was well arranged and comfy. It was not a boring place as we took advantage of all the recreation they offered. For e.g, the pool, spa, sauna, BBQ area and last but not least, the pool table. Some friends even bought some amazing jewellery from one of their 2 cabnets. I had a great relaxing weekend and wouldnt hesitate for a moment to go back there. In fact we are staying there this time next year. Cant Wait !!
Thank you Ann and Dion for the great stay.

  • Liked — It was very relaxing but could also have lots of fun fun fun.
  • Disliked — I found the shower cubicles slightly small.
