Fantastic accommodation in the heart of Wanganui. As weary travellers, this was by far the best overnight B&B experience we've had in many years. Great hosts with good sense of humour also made this delightful !

great to hear you enjoyed your stay and even better that my new joke book 'NZs greatest Dad jokes' is paying for itself already. Hope to see you again :)

The staff were all very lovely and helpful. Nothing was a hassle and everything was set up for our needs on arrival. Would totally stay and conduct business there again! Rooms were comfortable and food hearty.

Great place, fantastic facilities, got an upgrade on Easter weekend which we thought would never happen anywhere. Easy to get to restaurants or town Centre. We stayed in the Lodge area so will try the hotel area next time. Also very clean!

Staff are friendly and helpful. My room was neat, comfortable and clean. Nice quiet location and not too far away from the city center by car. They had everything I required and more. Easily the best accommodation I have stayed at in many years.

Checked in last minute, very late & had forgotten to pack overnight breakfast food (& was Easter Sunday & so supermarket closed). Was incredibly grateful to lovely owner for helping out with fruit & cereal for the next morning - thank you!!:)

Our visit did not start well when we were told that we had booked rooms with shared facilities. We hadn’t, but had little option than to pay the extra. Our rooms were in a converted house but were quite comfortable. The location is well outside of central Wanganui.

Hi Val, we have many different options for rooms and happily upgraded you at a discounted rate when you realised you had booked the wrong room. It is clearly stated in the room descriptions that the lodge rooms have communal kitchen and bathrooms, hence the lower tariff on those rooms. I am glad you found our self contained suite comfortable....

Clean and tidy room, kitchen tidy, snacks available for a price. Nice living area. Pool table was £2 a go, which I find annoying since we have payed to stay here already and use the lounge area. The pool was out of use, and we weren't offered a discount for the inconvenience. The kitchen, lounge and bedrooms were very cold...

Hi and thanks for the feedback, just so you know the lodge where you stayed has a central gas heater that throws out the heat when required, please come see us if you cant turn it on and we can sort that for you. The pool is currently out of commission but that is so we can repair the filter,...

we booked 1 night last minute and the owner man (sorry!) was very accommodating for our 7 month old baby. Great friendly vibe, very tidy and well presented. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others. Thankyou for a short but lovely stay :)

This strikes me a good place to have a party or perhaps a family reunion. There is a very large covered outdoor barbecue area where family chefs could hold court. The resort is not large enough that anyone would get lost. There's a spacious, modern, separate apartment where grandparents could hide out, if necessary. There is a pool for kids...

Had an event on the river so a fantastic location for us. Will stay an extra night next time to take advantage of the facilities they have to offer. Lovely surrounds, plenty of parking & rooms to suit all budgets. Our family stayed in the lodge due to motels booked out. Unfortunately had a family who were very loud and...

Hi Julie, thank you for the feedback, I am pleased you had a generally positive experience over what was a pretty busy weekend. It is disappointing to hear when people aren't as considerate of other guests as they could be and I remember talking with you about that at the time. Rest assured our staff are quick with a tea...

“I prefer a soft top bed. It was a bit firm, however my husband had no problem. (call me a softie) I slept on the single bed. The room was enjoyable. There was a tv in the room so we could just have peace and quiet when we needed it.”
