On the spur of the moment we booked into the Rutland Arms Inn on our drive north...and we're SOOOOO glad we did!
We felt like kings in our sumptuous, spacious room with its stunning period furniture. The room was light filled but also warm and overlooked a flowering cherry tree and the road frontage below... but being a small town at night the room was very quiet with very little outside noise.
Everything was immaculately clean, including the spacious bathroom with spa bath. We were absolutely thrilled with our stay and with the delicious breakfast that was part of the deal....my muesli, berries, yogurt and toast were VERY yummy (in fact they were so good my husband wished he'd chosen my healthy option rather than the HUGE (and equally delicious but slightly less healthy) full cooked breakfast with its gourmet sausage, ample bacon, 2 eggs, nutty brown bread and mushrooms!!!!
The only slight downside to our stay was the busy waitress at breakfast who seemed a bit gruff when explaining the breakfast options....but really given the overall quality & comfort of the room, value for money, safe off street parking and the delicious food, we give the Rutland Arms Inn a 10 out of 10 and will definitely be back again when we're next in Whanganui!!!More
