“Round the World trip”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Stayed at this motel during our tour of New Zealand as part of our trip. The location is perfect and our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The room was extremely clean well appointed, we would have stayed longer but for a busy schedule. I would recommend this motel to anyone and will certainly use it again.

Lovely accommodation, spacious and everything is thought through down to some treats left for us on the table. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in a number of motels/hotels during our 2 months in NZ with a mixture of accommodation - some good, some not so good. This was the best of them all and would highly recommend staying here. We could even park the car right outside the door. Although not close to the centre of town there are good restaurants close-by. If you stay here add on a breakfast for $12, it is brought to your room at exactly the time you ordered it (to the minute!) and is really good.

Stayed here over the Easter weekend and previously in October 2012. Excellent: Clean (spotless)and very comfortable. Very friendly and helpful staff, nothing is too much trouble for Marie and Noel. Located just off a busy road, but no problems with noise or traffic and just a short stroll into town or the parks. Would certainly stay again and recommend. Rooms well appointed. We were in room 6, no shaver socket located so if required, remember to bring your own convertor plug.

Very clean, very comfortable and inexpensive motel with all the facilities that you need for a short stay. Staff are very helpful in giving directions. Supermarkets and petrol stations are very close and a couple of decent restaurants are nearby.

We booked a studio at theis motel due to its good recommendation and were not disappointed. We were upgraded to a one bedroom appartment on arrival which was a nice surprise. The rooms were clean comfortable and spacious with good parking outside each unit and a table and chair The equipment was thoughtfully provided to make the stay as easy as possible. There was a good supermarket nearby and it was a short walk into town with it's pleasant main street containing many shops and restaurants. Noel and his wife were very helpful and welcoming and we would certainly encourage others to stay here.

The unit we were in, number 9 has a fabulous spa bath which was a hit with a very sore boy after rowing all day. The DVD library at reception was also another great perk, just nice having that option as well as SKY movies. The treats on the table in the bowl - chocolate bar, fruit and crackers were a really nice touch. Noel was great, we have re-booked our next stay. The cafe called Parnell's next door was very good for breakfast or lunch with a lovely selection of gelato. The supermarket is opposite which is handy. We will be staying there a lot over the years, perfect place to stay if you need to visit Wanganui Collegiate as it is just around the corner! It was super clean, could not have had a cleaner bathroom or kitchen area. Plenty of towels etc. Fabulous!

Room Tip: A spa bath is a nice extra. Close the windows at night (double glazed and reduces any noise). In s...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Yes - we are well located close to supermarkets, Parnells cafe and Wanganui Collegiate School, and our cleaning staff are very diligent in ensuring that our rooms are spotlessly clean. We look forward to having you stay again.
