What a great find. Lovely hosts and splendid resort making it great value. Would most definitely stay again. A big ten from us four. Rooms are comfy and they have a nought of everything. Only wish we had had an extra night to enjoy facilities more.

We stayed here with a group of car enthusiasts. Although our room was very small, the lodge had a great kitchen, dining and lounge area where we could all gather, prepare meals or drinks or just chat. There was never a queue at the various shared toilets or bathrooms conveniently located throughout the building. Excellent unlimited internet connection. Nice view...

The Anndion is always welcoming and friendly with very clean and comfortable accommodation. You have everything you need - including privacy if you require it - in a really relaxed and tranquil setting. I can not recommend it enough.

Great hosts and a handy location. Will stay here again for sure!! The room was spacious and well appointed. The bathroom was roomy and the shower water pressure was like a heavenly massage!! The standard of condiments was top notch with nice coffees and a good selection of teas.

Recommended to us after we had to abort our second night's stay in the Grand Hotel due to ants, foul smell and faulty shower. The three staff we interacted with were great - friendly, helpful and genuine. Dion was especially good. There were my wife and I and our two young daughters and we were accommodated in the Cove suite....

A wonderful stay. Great hosting and a lovely, quiet room, tastefully decorated in black and red. Everything that was needed was there. We only had one night but will be back, as we gave mire to do in Wanganui.
