As motels go, this is among the best we have ever stayed at. Very convenient location close to the central business district and a variety of restaurants, reception with a big smile, a highly efficient check-in, plenty of parking on site, excellent facilities for the price, very clean in all aspects, and an amazing spa in the bath that I had never expected at a motel. Fantastic value for money. We would stay here again any time we are back in Whanganui.
