Incredibly impressed with the Anndion Lodge. It was by far the best place for our trainees to come and train in Wanganui. A great size room with all the available equipment made our training a real pleasure.

I always choose to stay at Anndionne Lodge, as it is by far the best place to stay in the central/lower North Island. Anne and Dion make you feel like a member of the family. Comfortable and clean rooms, with modern bathrooms, good cooking facilities and the spa pool /bbq courtyard rocks!
