Owner very lovely. Told me where to get dinner and about some attractions. Our first stay in whanganui. Room needs a little attention. (Cosmetic wise) But it was very clean tidy and warm. Kitchen has everything you need for your stay. Our room was quiet. Only thing I would add, is having an extension cord for the electric blanket, as my side couldn't reach the power point. We enjoyed our stay. Recommend hotel and whanganui
