The wife and I stayed for one night on our way to New Plymouth and we were not disappointed. The place has a certain charm. Check in was quick -Thank you Daniel-, the room was very clean as well as being spacious enough. Bathroom very clean and the usual amenities provided. Free parking is available at the back with direct access to the rooms so guests may skip going through the pub/front. Accessibility may be an issue for those who cannot or find it hard to take the stairs since the rooms are all on the first floor. Breakfast is included but it's very limited (the quintessential Weetbix and toast with jam and butter). However, there are very good breakfast options a la carte. We will certainly return whenever in Whanganui.

I would need a guarantee that if I stayed there again that I would not get the room above the bar/kitchen. Very noisy and being woken up each morning by the kitchen staff starting music etc in the early hours is not relaxing
