“adBlue4You - Taranaki/Wanganui”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

One of the best motels we have ever stayed in.
The reception was very friendly and mad eus feel very welcome.
Room (14) was very spacious and clean and smelled very fresh.
Nice chairs to relax in, large bed and spa bath to sooth the travel away.
Received discount to restaurant and corporate rates at motel so was extremely good value.
Parkin at the door and well kept grounds and gardens made a pleasant stay.
Would highly recommend any one visiting Wanganui - stay here!!
Sorry it was only for one night but could be back soon.

I had two nights at this relaxing motel - I wish it could have been longer. The wifi is brilliant, the kitchen clean and the bed very comfortable. I arrived here after 34 hours in transit from the UK, so the fact that I suffered no jet lag is testament to the good night's sleep I had. The people who run it - Mark and Karen - are really nice and know loads about the area. And they have a very nice cat!

Unfortunately only stayed for one night but took their card for future reference. Tidy and clean unit with brand new comfortable sofa. Had everything one wanted. The couple running this motel were very friendly and gave us ideas where to eat. Close to townn so we walked to the main street which was only 10mins away. Motel is situated right on the river so pleasant walking on a pleasant evening. Excellent value for money!
Will definately stay again when I return

We could only stay one night but had a self contained unit that was more like a first class hotel room with a panoramic view of the river. Very friendly and helpful proprietor and close to town centre and pleasant walks along the river

We stayed just one night at this great little motel but could have stayed a week. The accommodation was more like a spacious appartment than a motel suite and included a fully equipped large kitchen. Additionally a laundry is available for the use of guests. The proprietor was unbelievably helpful to the extent of insisting on hanging out the washing for us while we went off to enjoy the town.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side have the better outlook over the garden.

Excellent value for money and in a good location for town. Nice to be able to stroll up and down the river. Stayed one night in room 7. Lovely view over the river, although other rooms would only get a glimpse. Very efficient owners sorted a minor problem. Traffic noise starts from about 7am, but this didn't bother us unduly, and as far as we could see would apply to all motels in town. Would stay here again.

We stayed here as a family for one night whilst doing a tour of New Zealand. The hosts were so friendly (and cute kids) and made this stay have a wonderful family friendly feel about it. The accommodation is very comfortable and spacious and it shows the hosts are working hard to to update the rooms. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone travelling in this area.
