We didn't realise that this was more of a lodge than a motel but we were pleasantly surprised. The owners were extremely friendly and accomodating. It has a share kitchen and lounge room, and if you don't have an ensuite (we did) then it is a
share bathroom. They have a pool, hot tub and pool table for everyone to use. I would definately stay there again if we venture back to Wanganui.
Colonial is a great place to stay. We made a booking but the hotel was having some Internet issues that day and it took a while to check us in, but it was an understandable situation. The room was very convenient for five of us. It had a fun spa
bath and the kitchen was well supplied. Only sad part was that we had no wifi during our stay and that was a main reason for our booking., but once again out of our control. Our room was situated in the back and that was nice and quite and perfect. The location is perfect and the view oft he lake is awesome.
The Colonial Lodge Motel suited our needs perfectly. Our family of five (two adults and three adult children) needed an overnight stay on our way to the airport in Auckland the next day.
The owners were very flexible and allowed us to extend our
check-out time by a half hour since we had checked in so late the night before.
My only suggestion would be to provide a blanket and extra sheets for the pull-out sofa bed, if needed. I saw extra pillows in the master bedroom closet, but no extra blanket for the pull-out sofa. The sheets may have been on the sofa bed already (my son did not say, and I forgot to ask in the morning).
Overall, though, a very nice place to stay. I loved soaking in the tub / jacuzzi the night we arrived late!
