Pros: Microwave, oven etc were provided. Beds were good..overall very nice

5.8 Okay
Pros: Reception person genuinely tried to be helpful, but it was difficult because her English language was not very good and the internet WiFi was very poor intermittent and in effect unusable service plus she couldn't tell us clearly how to get the TV to work properly. Although she tried hard with this and eventually it worked well.
Cons: Gas heater seemed to be faulty - there was a smell of gas and other heating facilities were inadequate. Most other facilities were pretty average, and while I didn't expect too much because it was cheap - it did meet my expectations of mediocrity.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Location is great as we saw the motel as soon as we got into Whanganui so we didn't have to worry about finding it. Facilities were very satisfactory so had everything we needed for a short stay. Single beds really comfortable and shower had great pressure. It was very clean and heating very nice and no noise from next rooms which was a bonus.
Cons: The queen bed was hard as rock so I had to sleep on the single and not enough soap. Can I suggest you use body/hair wash instead of small cakes of soap and shampoo??

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location is ideal if you need to be at the north end of town. Restaurant food is good, bit lacking in ambience. Adequate off-road parking. Staff always friendly. And an early check-in much appreciated.
Cons: Some of the rooms are a little aged and run down and could use an upgrade; bathrooms clean but very basic, plastic 1980s-style, a missing curtain or a window that won't shut properly. To be expected for the price!

7.9 Good
Pros: The motel was comfortable, but was ruined by the noise from the courtyard behind our unit until just after 2am. ie guests drinking and generally sociallising. This is a motel, not a pub. However the sunday night was much better. Generally a comfortable, well located motel.
Cons: Aircon would be nice, but we already knew it was not available before we arrived. Probably getting due for a facelift, but the price was very reasonable.
7.5 Good
Pros: well located for the cbd area
Cons: unit was a bit chilly on arrival

Pros: Comfortable room
Cons: Heater noice
