Comfortable, quiet, clean...and a nice, clean, well-appointed kitchen. I would certainly return. We found this hotel on short notice, and were pleasantly surprised by its charm and comfort. During two months of travel in New Zealand, I never slept better!

Stayed at the Tamara Riverside lodge with my wife and 4 year old son. The entire place was very clean and well kept. The garden area is great as well. The owner enthusiastically showed us around and recommended places of interest and restaurants in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

We were stuck in traffic on this day and called in advance to let the owner know we would be arriving late. This was much appreciated (will definitely keep doing this if we are delayed) and luckally it was no problem.

On arrival we rang the bell at the reception as it was unattended due to the late hour. Somebody came to help us straightaway and the staffmember was very friendly and helpfull. The room was a good size, clean and well styled. We had a comfortable bed and a good night sleep. Did not use the kitchen much, just for breakfast, but it looked good to me. Had a great stay here.

We arrived late and Kev (night manager) was very patient with us (and our many bags) and showed us around the property and made us feel very welcome. The room was lovely, with a soothing view of the river out of large windows, and very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was clean and well-equipped. Dining and lounge areas were large and well maintained as well. It was quiet season, but overall seems like a place where your sleep would NOT be disturbed at all. The property itself is beautiful, and it's Edwardian villa charm has been retained quite well. Met the owners the next morning, and they were very friendly and helpful as well. Would definitely recommend Wanganui and Tamara for a few days to stop and relax between the 2 islands (if you're on a countrywide trip like we were!). Wish we had longer there!

Room Tip: Right by the river, spacious, good common facilities

Gentleman met us at the reception very friendly and helpful remind us more than once if we need any assistance to call him any time. Gave us information about special event that was happening in Wanganui. Room an on suite had every thing we need for one night stay. TV room and common kitchen is available for customers in the main building nearby. Room open to the back garden. If we have to stay in Wanganui we will stay again.

Room Tip: single room by the garden nice an comfortable.
