  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

The location was good but the studio unit was rundown and in need of new plumbing as one of the taps was loose and the toilet kept running. The sliding door between the bathroom and bed/living area came off the roller unfortunately so the owner said he will fix it.

  • Liked: Cleanliness

It was a nice, clean, tidy property. Close to town and access to Whanganui and surrounding areas. Staff were very helpful. While the unit was a little dated it was perfect for what we needed and a good price

This is a budget motel but t had everything I needed. It was very clean and quiet and the staff were very friendly and attentive. They allowed me to have my cat stay with me for the 4 nights I was there and that was a big plus for me. I would have no problem using this motel again.

Stayed 4 nights in Sep. 2019
