This place was recommended by the tourist i-site staff. I wanted somewhere downtown, not far from the arts area. It's actually just off the main street (Victoria Avenue). I was told I was the only guest in for the night and showed to my room by bar staff. I stayed in the Rutland Suite (Room 1), a large room facing... More

This is a place that COULD be the best experience when going out in Wanganui. It is in prime location and a charming building - instead The Rutland Arms Inn interior is looking very tired, which matches the look on the non- smiling waiting staff. To cap it all off - when we asked for a hot chocolate drink on... More

Dear Anuann, Thank you for your feedback. To say I am disappointed is an understatement - and I am very confused regarding your experience with your hot chocolate. We use a Cadbury Chocolate powder that is made into a paste with a small amount of hot water and then milk is added (the majority of the serve is milk) where... More

So on the outside it looks like a normal pub. On the inside it looks like a dressed up normal pub. When you look behind the bar and see a great range of beers and craft beers you start to realise this is a cut above. The menu is a great size with something to please everybody. Burgers are great,... More

This hotel was fantastic. We stayed in room 2 - The York Room. There is no lift, so please be aware if stairs are difficult for you. There are 24 stairs in total and reasonably steep. The room was full of character. Very clean. The gentleman who showed us to our room was very friendly and took time to explain... More

We stayed in this hotel back in 2015. The staff was very friendly and kind. He suggested and brought us to the rooms with different interior one by one and let us pick the preferred one during check-in. The continental breakfast was nice and plenty. We also had our dinner at the their restaurant downstairs.

I stayed here, overnight, on a business trip. Excellent room, bed, service! Also had a meal in the bar downstairs, which was very tasty and reasonably priced. The room cost also include breakfast, which was great. Parking too, at the rear of the building. Will definitely stay again, if in Wanganui.

Positives and negatives. The positives: 1. Wonderful staff. 2. Lovely large airy room with a beautiful carved wooden headboard all in keeping with the era of this hotel. 3. Excellent continental breakfast of homemade muesli (very tasty - you need to package this and sell it), fresh fruit salad and toast. 3. Excellent centre of town location 4. Secure parking... More

Wow what a selection on tap plus the barman new everything there was to know about each one. Great setting and amazing food added to the Visit. Service was fantastic. We couldn't get a room as they were fully booked out for the week. We will definitely be back.

We stayed in the honeymoon suite as we got upgraded, for no extra cost. The room has just been updated, it was beautiful & elegant. The bathroom is big, with 2 basins, & big spa bath. The atmosphere is relaxed in hotel, but food arrived very quickly for our delicious lunch & big breakfast.
