Convenient location on Victoria Avenue Whanganui. Parking outside units. All usual facilities. Short drive or reasonable walking distance from restaurants. Off-road so no traffic noise. Free Wifi. Friendly staff.

Thank you for your kind words.I must confess that we do get a lot of guests saying they overslept due to the lack of road noise they tend to experience at other accommodation facilities. We look forward to hosting you again in the near future. Kind regards, KIm Herbert

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...

Hotel staff were lovely. The room was dated, however clean and serviced daily, which is nice. Rooms are spacious and have everything you need, however I could feel the springs in the bed. It didn't bother me enough to lose sleep, but I could see how this would concern a lot of people. We were also missing our iron (we...

The lady that took my booking was really lovely and helpful. The reception area was very nice. We went to the room and it smelt, there were stains on the bed covers, spiders and cobwebs in the toilet, lino was really old and dirty, paint peeling in bathroom, shower curtain looked about 20 years old. Blankets under bed civer very...

And so were we so didn't have the energy to look elsewhere. Wouldn't go back but was a good reminder to check room before paying. Vinyl on bathroom floor has been painted to make it look new. Shower above bath was only for short people. Only one sink...a handbasin used for both kitchen and bathroom use....enough said.

I've stayed a number of times at Midtown Motor Inn. Always very friendly & accommodating. The motel rooms are clean and comfortable. The motor inn is close to the CBD, about 10 minutes brisk walk to the centre, there are two large supermarkets about 5 mins walk away, 24 hr McDs (McCafe too) and Burger K across the road, heaps...

Returned to Whanganui, second stay at Midtown Motors. Reception staff welcoming and helpful on arrival. Made it feel like home from home. Flat screen TV with analogue and digital channels, some of them showing programmes other than rugby. Unit very clean, serviced thoroughly daily. Fresh towels and bedding every day. Steaming water 24/7. Kitchen and utensils up to date, produced...

This motel has serious issues . Old plastic electric jug that smelt terrible in use and tainted the water. Only had one severely cracked handbasin in the kitchen for toilet hygiene, teeth cleaning,shaving,drinking water,dishwashing. DISGUSTING. Heavy thick black mould on kitchen ceiling, door frame, in toilet cistern gave us both respiratory issues. Electric blanket had a broken switch which made...

Recently stayed at the Midtown Motor Inn and while the reception when you arrive was lovely, the actual hotel room was majorly lacking. I suppose for $89 nzd you're not reallly going to get much, but it was not really clean. The bathroom and bedroom counter had ants walking all over, the basin in the bathroom was dirty and there...

My husband and I stayed for two nights. We chose the room with the small kitchenette. It was wonderful, quiet and relaxing. All though there were a lot of people staying,as it was Easter, everyone was quiet. The rooms were nice and clean; they even serviced it on the second day, we got nice and clean dry towels, and it...
