3 of us decided to come to the Rutland Arms for a dessert. The staff that served us our desserts were lovely and attentive to our needs. We enjoyed sitting in the semi out doors area for the time we were there. Unfortunately it came to a disappointing end as the lady that served me and took payment was bickering...

Stayed 2 nights in The Rutland Arms Whanganui beginning January 2017. It was a spur of the moment break and husband and I decided we would stay in an old Main Street Hotel, the neighbours came along so we booked 2 rooms.

We spent a total of 14 nights during our latest visits. We found the management of Travis & Jennifer together with their excellent staff of all levels most hospitable and friendly at all times. We strongly recommend this hotel not only for its accommodation but also its food and drink.

Came for lunch today, had spiced chicken salad, who would put asian spice chicken with camembert on soggy lettuce with an oil vinaigrette that had no lemon. Seriously disappointed for the $25.00 it cost. the wait was super long and get the broken doors fixed as no air flow.

Have stopped for dinner and lunch a few times. Menu substantial with good variety of pub grub with finer dinning options too. Always have a good selection of beers including guest craft beer to choose from. Recommend.

Had a large group booking with a set-menu of 5 different main meal options, they even printed us our own Menu that included our group emblem on it, a very nice touch. Service was friendly and food was great - good hearty sizes and tastey. A minor disapointment was that we had a booking time and only had a limited...

Beautiful room but inexpensive. Very central, with a great pub and restaurant downstairs (with some awesome craft beers). Having parking out back a bonus. Would recommend to anyone there on business - I look forward to getting back.

we went here for an evening meal recently. We had booked in advance, and were allocated a table in a corner by the window. Leafy green trees outside lining the street. Nice atmosphere, lively but not too noisy. Lots of interesting photos and memorabilia on the walls. There was even English beer. Plenty of space on the wrap-around bench seating....
