Disliked: Staff & service
Arrived just before 8:30pm. Reception closed, went to bar to check in. Informed kitchen was closed other than chips or wedges which is illegal in NZ as food must be provided. Eventually we were offered a chicken salad or burger which we declined. Basically we went to our room at 9:30pm as they started to vacuum the bar area with no food and a couple of drinks. Admittedly it was a Monday but $190 per night is too steep for what was on offer not a lot.

Great stay in Whanganui
We enjoyed our short stay here. Whanganui is a great place, and the hotel is well-located. It had a fine atmosphere. We walked everywhere. The room was huge and comfortable. Breakfast was great. The host was very friendly. Would recommend.
