Great Accomodation in Whanganui, rooms have Spa baths, sky tv, comfy beds and all the extras incase you forget them such as toothbrush/toothpaste and razor. Conveniently located across the road from Supermarkets and you can go across the road to the kingsgate and charge back to y

Daaaa room

"Choose a room on the ground floor with large Spa Bath"
