“Great venue for our team”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

Have just come back from a weekend away in Wanganui with my badminton team. Had a fabulous time at AnnDion. Anne and Dion were friendly and welcoming and we were able to pretty much take over the Lodge which had "dorm" rooms, shared bathroom facilities and a superb communal kitchen, dining and lounge area. Our teams had a great time staying there. We appreciated the hot spa after a day of badminton. The rooms were comfortable and warm with fresh towels daily and a TV in the room should we have had time to use it. A super place to stay - thanks!

My adult family of siblings their mates and our elderly mother have been gathering together every year since 1998. We have met in many great places from Waiheke Island, Rarotonga, venues throughout New Zealand, Perth and other Australian holiday places. Anndion Lodge is way up there with them all.
Ann, Dion and staff are so friendly, courteous, accommodating that we found the whole experience memorable. Their rooms are so clean, with the little details that just added to the experience. For example the bed linen superb, the setting, the full complement of toweling, never short of coffee, tea, lovely cutlery and crockery. We enjoyed the restaurant meal and their permission for us to have a singalong for our mother, it was great. Even though I was somewhat limited due to a leg in plaster, the room we were given was just great overlooking the pool and spa. we enjoyed using the outdoor barbecue and seating arrangement provided for a number of meals. A family place for sure. We look forward to using the Lodge itself as this would be great for families wanting to be close together. Whanganui is not too warm this time of year but it did not dull our stay. Thank you Ann and Dion

Room Tip: If you have a family gathering of 20 plus - go for the Lodge The unit nearest to the pool is great...

One of the best accommodations we had in NZ; we were 8 people in two rooms which were very big and very well equipped- giving you the feeling that you are in expensive hotel. The garden was very large with immediate access from the rooms. There is large kitchen and dining room serving all the guests which again were very well equipped and designed, the manager was very friendly and the location very easy to accesses which excellent large playground nearby for the children

Anndion Lodge is an amazing place to stay in Whanganui. It's in a beautiful and convenient spot with lots of parking. The premises are immaculate and the personal, friendly service is brilliant, especially after a long drive. It's a unique property with many different types of accomodation. I was very impressed with the decor, layout and cleanliness. We enjoyed our stay and thought it was excellent value. The only thing I would warn is that if you want a quiet, romantic getaway make sure they put you in a secluded part of the house as some of the self contained rooms are right next to the ones that share the bathroom facilities and the running water and people noise, although not loud, is a little intrusive on a Sunday morning. Highly recommend this lodge and we plan on coming back to exlplore more of Whanganui so will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Make sure you know all the options - as there are many - then you can get exactly what you are looki...

I usually do not post reviews. And I too manage an accommodation.
AnnDion is by far in terms of value for dollar the most well-managed, well maintain and well priced.
The premises is clean, tidy and organize. Last but not list, the owners are generous in spoiling the guests with face-wash towels, shampoos, coffee and tea.
A lovely and peaceful place to stay. Good on you Ann & Dion.

We had a wonderful stay at Anndion Lodge in February this year. Myself and my boyfriends family descended on Anndion's for a birthday celebration for my boyfriends aunt who lives in Wanganui. There were I think 12 of us who booked into the lodge and everyone really enjoyed their stay. The rooms were spotless and very nicely and lavishly decorated! Most had shared bathrooms, which suited us all, the bathrooms being close by and squeaky clean. There was a lounge with a HUGE Tv, and a shared kitchen with free tea and coffee, and every conceivable utensil/appliance at hand.

We stayed for 2 nights and on both evenings we basically commandeered the kitchen and the BBQ area for ourselves in order to celebrate the aunts birthday. The BBQ area has 2 large BBQ grills, is a covered but bright area with ample seating for the aprox 20 of us that were there to celebrate. Although we pretty much took over and were probably quite noisy, the hosts could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Lovely people, who have created a really lovely, relaxed place to stay in Wanganui.

The salt water pool is small but perfect for a dip, and the spa pool was very nice and relaxing. The Wifi was temperamental, but I think they were having problems with it, and it was working fine on the second night of our stay. The lodge is pretty much on the banks of the Wanganui River but also affords easy access to the town centre. Highly recommend

This is a great place to stay. The accomodation is excellent and the owners are friendly and efficient. We have been touring the North island for the last three weeks and this is the best place we have stayed so far by a country mile! What a shame we could only stay for one night on our way down to Wellington - we would have loved to stay longer.
