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.

We stayed and ate here when we were in Whanagnui recently. We had pre-booked and chosen a room on-line, which when we arrived was cosy and welcoming. The car park wasn't the easiest to find but we got there in the end and found our way into the pub from the rear. The bathroom had a spa bath which was... More

After a day of climbing mount Taranaki we found ourselves at the Rutland Arms Hotel. We were really excited to have a nice steak dinner and ordered our steaks medium rare, more on the rare side. The steaks came out well done and burnt on top. When we asked the manager to come see the steaks he refused to even... More

Pretty close to a real English style pub. The place looks inviting from the outside and has a good pub atmosphere inside. Great range of beers including Boddingtons and London Pride on tap + a range of NZ craft beers. The wife had the tasting 'paddle' and really liked the Lakeman Wheat Wacker. She also enjoyed the Bulmers Original on... More
