I had need of centrally located motel in Wanganui for an overnight stay. I elected this motel because of reasonable pricing and because it offered a range of accommodation options. For my overnight stay, I chose a ‘budget’ room and I was well satisfied. Although perhaps in need of an upgrade in furnishings – and a fresh coat of paint – the things that mattered far more were excellent: comfortable bed, clean, tidy – and a welcoming host.
