I arrived unannounced after 10 pm following a long drive. The vacancy sign was still up and I received a warm friendly welcome. I was shown to a one bedroom unit which was beautifully presented and clean. Off street parking was easily accessed dinner and breakfast could be purchased and was as good as I could hope to get anywhere....

We had a room at the lodge, right next to the salt water pool. Which we used several times during our stay. The lodge is lovely and clean, and the owner was friendly and helpful. The kitchen is well supplied, and even things like laundry liquid and shower gel were supplied. A great place to stay.

It suited us well as a large family, wanting separate bedrooms but able to prepare our meals and eat and sit together. Some of the family found the shared bathrooms a challenge. We were happy with our ensuite.

Very nice room: big bedding room ok for kid's play. The bed is very comfortable and we slept very well there. Bathroom is very clear and well-organized and big enough also. The tiny but fully equipped kitchenette is very convenient for cooking breakfast and some simple dishes. There is free BBQ for guest use. The swimming pool and hot spa...

Excellent location. A relaxing riverside walk into the city. The spa and pool area was well-maintained. The owners/managers are extremely friendly. Always open to a chat. Didn't visit the restaurant but it was very busy on one night of our stay.

The owners have gone to great lengths to create a lodge with a distinct and friendly character. Our room was very comfortable and provided with everything that was needed and more. Highly recommended.

“Located on Whanganui River arriving via Parapara Road from Ratahi, Close to city. Both downstairs and upstairs units, very quiet.”

“I am not sure what you mean by this, but I think management would be wise to spot check the cleaning and presentation of rooms. Also the communal dishwasher would have benefited from actually been cleaned, the filter and arms inside. and a dishwasher cleaner put through regularly. My sister and I did this and it worked beautifully.”

“The rooms are a bit snug, so plan ahead when bringing in your luggage. No air conditioning either which is not normally a big deal, but there was a bit of unavoidable outside noise due to some local cats on the prowl. Otherwise, great spot.”

“Make sure no one else is using the garage as it would be very disputive as there are windows looking out of the room into the garage, it is directly next to the room.”
