It was close to Wanganui cbd. The receptionist was brusque,rude and shouted at the lady before us. She was not helpful.

We have stayed at the 'Grand' annually for many years. Always a treat to see the proprietor who had become a 'friend'. Sad to hear Neville, had sold the hotel . We were shown to what I would call a 'Mumbai' room. Canvas beach chairs etc! On asking, we were given the sort of room we are used to at the 'Grand' - red velvet chairs etc. The hotel is now owned by a gentleman from over seas . A lot of the rooms are still under renovation. Meals are good.

A lot of history on the walls of each floor. Rare militaria photos of museum quality. Old fashio pub style accommodation wity hearty meals expertly prepared. Lovely spot will visit again. Expect a pub style old school place full of character and charm.

Some things were really good (sheets crisp, towels fluffy, parking etc ) but others could be improved ( TV was poor and limited, shampoo dispenser was outside the shower ). The worst thing was the meal in the Irish pub downstairs: It took an hour from ordering to actually getting them, they were quite small for the cost, Visa was down and we were asked if we could pay by cash and the meals were bordering on cold and just about had to go back.
