We do not often stay overnight in Wanganui, but when we do, try to stay at this motel, as we have always found the standard very high, owners/operators very welcoming, and cost reasonable. Our recent visit when we were lucky to obtain the last room available showed those qualities continue to be upheld. We had a spacious studio unit, with...

Stayed for a couple of nights early in the new year and highly recommend B-Ks Magnolia. We rented a one bedroom and found it to be very clean with a comfortable bed - the air conditioning is a big plus as well. Had all the kitchenette supplies we needed and we were very pleased with our motel choice. Quiet and...

Magnolia Motor Lodge is on a side-street near the centre of town so it's handily located but with no road noise, which is a blessing! The rooms are a good size and of good quality: the bathroom and kitchenette are modern, the beds are springy and comfortable, and there's plenty of off-street and on-street parking. The kitchen includes a stove-top...

This hotel is very tidy, clean and roomy. Great value for money. It is at the back quiet street of the main street. My wife forgot the phone charger and we were called very soon before we left the Whanganui.

This Motor Lodge is great. I was greeted by the friendly host, who knew exactly who I was and was organised very quickly to settle me in my room. The room is tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean, with modern fixtures and a basic but equipped kitchenette. I cannot fault the host Brian and his excellent service, he will look after...

BK's is a very tidy and clean motel. We had a unit with a spa bath and it was very clean, and comfortable. Great with air conditioning as it one of Wanganui's hotter days! The girls coming in to do the cleaning couldn't do enough for us and the owners are very friendly. I like that we had a choice...

It is impossible and unnecessary to add any more positive comments about this excellent motel. I agree with everything that has been said and would thoroughly recommend you to stay there when visiting Wanganui.

We stayed here on Saturday 21st February 2015, Room was clean, tidy and very comfortable. Kathy and Brian the owners were wonderful hosts going the extra mile with the customer service they offered. The motel is very central to everything however still nice and quiet for a relaxing stay. We would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation - Excellent

Nice and quiet, just off the main street in town, handy easy walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. And a reasonable price too. Lazy boy chairs perfect after your stroll to town.
