I would like to be able to score this more as the managers were fantastic. Allan went out of his way to help us with our bikes and advice in general. The trouble is the property is not young and shows its age. Having said that this is the pick if places in Taumaranui. Yes I would stay again as...

We stayed here for one night and I think we could have done better as there were several other places in the town. On the plus side it was clean and the staff were very pleasant. However, the kitchen area was hopeless. A few plates and a minimum of cutlery, a tiny microwave and no suitable dishes to cook anything...

Very friendly staff - from time of making the booking to meeting in person. The Unit my sister and I shared was roomy and clean. Free Wi-Fi details provided on arrival. Close to town and local clubs. Plenty of parking. I would stay there again.

The staff at the Alexander Spa Motel are very friendly, yes the decor is slightly dated but you have everything you need for a one or 2 night overnight stay. It's clean and functional and look forward to staying when I working in the area.

Stayed one night in the 'family' room. It was very tired and expensive for what it was. We booked through booking.com and it said only 12 rooms left ...there were only 3 units of about 20 occupied! I will not stay here again

Stayed two separate nights. First room upstairs. Taking luggage up two(?) flights a hassle. Unit clean. Very quiet. Second visit ground floor. Manageress extremely friendly and obliging allowing me to use room all morning before catching 2.30pm bus.

I arrived at night - the rooms was very clean however the smell of the deodorizer used was overwhelming. There was also bare particle board on edges of doors and cupboards. Very 1970's dated with bright red carpet. Very old small microwave. Average bed to sit on - I didn't stay as I started sneezing and wheezing immediately. The receptionist...

I loved our room here.It was room 1 and clean and lots of room.We stayed twice in two weeks, going down the Wanganui River in a canoe. The kitchenette has everything you need.I also liked my milk in a nice bottle rather than those plastic throwaway things.I found it quiet too.

This property is a erase in virtually every s nose. Somewhat easy to find, clean rooms and an average bed. Our greeting was "above average". Very few restaurants in the area do we opted for the RSA just a few doors away.

Stayed here last month with a big group. Check in was pretty easy considering we were a larger group. All rooms were clean and tidy with the usual comforts. I think one room had an issue with their shower, but it was rectified soon after. It was a good central location to the main shopping area and restaurants. If visiting...
