Kings Court Motel
Ranked #2 of 26 Hotels in Whanganui
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Our son who lives in Wanganui recommended the Kings Court because it was handy to town and quiet. We had dinner and a glass of wine and could walk back to the unit in a few minutes. Our unit was a queen studio. I booked over the internet. That was easy and no forms etc to fill in. We were moved to a bigger unit at the end ( no 9) as most guests had booked together for a function. That was good, but we didn't hear or see anyone else, though there must have been a few people coming and going. The unit had been refurbished. Everything was new and clean .We will be back.

Room Tip: 9 at the end was good

We were pleasantly surprised with the spacious room, and the new fixtures and fittings when we arrived. Everything was spotless, the bedding was clean and fresh, and it was very quiet. The location was great for us, just a 5 minute drive to see family and a short walk to the city centre and amenities. Wifi was included in the room which we usually need to pay for in hotels so it was a great bonus. On our next trip to Wanganui we will definitely be staying here again.

It is located within easy walking distance of the city centre and the rooms are lovely and fresh after their recent refurbishment with everything available that I needed. Nothing was too much trouble and the owners, Carol and Mark are both friendly and approachable.

We stayed here for one night as we were passing through on our honeymoon. The rooms were dated, but were a great size and were very clean. The rooms included a kitchenette. The staff were very friendly and helpful and even gave us a bottle of wine to celebrate our honeymoon. There was free WiFi and parking directly outside of our room. It was a short walk into town, which was very quiet and not very interesting, but the motel was great as a stop over to break up long journeys

We stayed here based on favourable reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. It is centrally located to the city centre, walking distance to restaurants, cafes and shops. It has lovely character and the unit we stayed in was modern, clean and had everything we needed. It has recently been renovated so kitchen and bathroom is nice and new.

The owners were very friendly and we got a good price being a last minute booking (I asked and they obliged!). I'd stay here again if we are back in Wanganui. Thanks.

Room was from the 70s and a bit dated but was clean and tidy with free wifi and a friendly owner. But to be fair the owners were progressively renovating all the rooms with over 50% upgraded. It was just unfortunate that we were not one of the lucky ones. Otherwise a well situated motel and only a short walk to the central business district.

Room Tip: With the family room the main bed is situated in the main living area. If you want privacy and their...
