Really impressed with our stay here. Warm, comfortable room. Loved the heat pump and electric blankets in the room as wanganui does have a notoriously cold climate. The black out curtains were a good addition as the hubby and I had a couple of good sleep ins during our stay. Loved the smart tv too, I think this is a good alternative to outdated sky although hubby did remark some less tech savvy guests may struggle with this. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to access our own Netflix account so we could watch a movie before bed. Room was clean. Loved meeting your cat and dog, as an animal lover I always find resident animals make a place more welcoming. Good parking onsite and good room rate, great value for money here. Thoroughly recommend a stay here to anyone else.
Very pleased with our overnight stay. Prue was a friendly host upon arrival and very accommodating. Happy with our ground floor room which was nice and quiet after a 7hour drive. Other half had stayed here before hence our return. Cafe on premises has the most amazing homemade pies, actually they really should enter the 'Best pie in NZ' competition the Lamb n mint pie was spot on with friendly accommodating staff Excellent customer service all round for 151 on London ... keep up the good work guys😊
The complete combo; spotless, comfortable room with brilliant human beings running the place. A well run and efficient business is one thing. Having such a warm, Kiwi welcome from the owners really topped it off. In all, a really nice stay in the beautiful town of Whanganui.
Great checkin, very friendly and helpful Room was a little small for my liking, and the bed i found very hard. Everything else was fine. Short walk around the corner to the choice of 2 supermarkets. Wifi was good
Greeted with being asked to pay up front. didn't get ground floor room as requested. Single beds were very small and room average, seemed to have been built on the cheap but supposedly made to look great.
We took our little dog along with us having found out from a previous stay that you could if you kept them in your car. Prue was onto me a spoon as we arrived as I had taken my dog by the SMOKE tin and given her some tea and water then Don took her for a walk.I told her again about the dog yes we had one a little Maltese 10 years old and well trained I also had a animates bark collar just in case at night time although she had a bed.From there it was all down hill nasty is the understatement for this manager she approached our neighbours early next morning and a lovely lady said A dog not maybe ours. Prue was adamant is was our dog who I took for a walk at 6am both morning then Don took her to the trilothon so I could, have rest. The man upstairs came home a 1/4 past 12 and you could hear the thumping on our ceiling . The room was dark and small cramped I mentioned this as had a business meeting to do She told me I should not have booked with booking com if I wanted better!!! I had told Prue the first day I was ill but that was like a green light for her to have a go at me.I ended up being told I pity you with all that horrific anger in you.. Bad karma screeching as I left the office at me. Never been abused like this ever! My professions RE : Registered nurse 1968 primary schools teacher 35 years.. hospitality all areas from the bar to ending to management. At 71 years old, not well, I do not appreciate this sort of person abusing me. Had my meeting at "The Mint" much nicer then although we had to pay for the room we went home.
Where other accommodation has increased the number of Sky channels, this motel has taken Sky out. Telling guests to use their own devices to access television is far from satisfactory especially because that is not advertised.
Prue, the manager was fantastic and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. The configuration of the room we had initially booked was not working for us. So Prue very kindly found us another room in the complex which worked well. After an emotional day at my mum's funeral, we were able to relax and enjoy and our stay. Thanks Prue, your help was very much appreciated :)
Lovely, helpful hosts. Very comfortable bed. Immaculately clean. All the facilities you could require. Unlimited Wifi. Very quiet room, even with the windows wide open. Easy access for parking. Special treatment of the water to remove the natural hard chemicals from it, so it's great to shower in. Friendly quiet cafe on the other side of the car parking area that sells great coffees and old carpentry tools decorating the walls. If I was back in Whanganui on business or with my family I would definitely stay here again. Thoroughly recommend it.
Stayed in a 2 bedroom unit sleeps up to 6 based on configuration. Comfortable beds, great shower, has kitchen (microwave, hob top) with good range of utensils etc Very clean and tidy. Great value for money There is a cafe across courtyard if you want good coffee in the morning Also a gym and probably most important nowadays free unlimited wifi for up to 5 devices!
