Stayed in the one bedroom which was very well equipped clean unit with special little touches like chocolates next to the bed. Spacious with proper facilities. Staff were very helpful and were able to give travel advice on the district.

We had initially booked a room there for a very reasonable price. However, the room was small with no private bathroom. The friendly manager upgraded us to a fully equipped suite, still for a reasonable price This was a very good quality - price ratio. We could use the barbecue and have a dinner in the garden. The suite was...

We stayed as a team for the Masters Games. Great accommodation and facilities. Lots of parking. Good distance to town. NEW hosts did a fab job. It was great to be able to stay together as a team. The lounge furniture is a bit dated but comfy.

We had a brief visit to Whanganui during our NZ road trip. We chose to stay here based on reviews on here. The reviews were correct, its a great place! The greeting at reception was great; very infomative and welcoming. The room was also just the right size and it was a great value stay. Would stay again.

The room we had was a bit small for all our junk but we had "budget" accomodation and far better rooms are available. This is much more like living in a B and B than a motel, Lots of different common rooms and great well appointed kitchen. Drive back to CBD but lovely river front walks etc.

We stayed a night in one of Anndion Lodge's deluxe rooms recently. We were warmly welcomed by the awesome and very friendly proprietors. Our room was spacious and opened onto the gardens with a small deck for the morning sun. The living area is large and has a sofa, coffee table and dining suite, compact kitchen with everything you could...

Quirky little lodge across from the river and close to the town. Has a pool table dining room and kitchen so you can make your self at home. Only thing I didn't like is you can hear people in the hallway if they open their doors or if they walk down the hallway so not great when your sleeping and...

The internet was the best I have experienced in NZ so far which is more important than people realise. 8ms ping, 68mb/s download and 24mb/s upload.

“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.”
