    The motels are comfortable and clean with good space. It's close to the town centre and a short five minute walk to the river where there's a decent walkway all the way to the second bridge. Cooks Gardens, a very handy location and highly recommended.

    On Arrival the microwave was not working properly and was too risky to start the microware and make the food. Made a complaint to reception and they change the microwave after a week. Even the management did not allow us to stay inside the room...More

    Nice tidy motel. Not far from the CBD. Good off street parking, a little tight but if everyone parks properly it not a problem. Nice comfortable rooms. Large bed. Kitchenette. Heating. Electric blankets. Good size bathroom. Sky TV. Free unlimited WiFi. Milk in a bottle....More

    A nice Motel in handy location. Quiet and very little road noise. Easy to find just off main Victoria Street. Clean tidy and friendly. Easy walking distance to town. Plenty of off street parking. Recommended in Wanganui. Good motel for family.
