          The fixed installed shower head is about at shoulder height, and I'm only 1.7m tall. Something went truly wrong with the plumber when they built that. Other than that there is not much to complain about. Friendly staff, spacious rooms, clean and tidy.

          We enjoyed our stay here. It is conveniently located in Whanganui, close to shopping, groceries and the CBD. The room was very clean and comfortable. We thought it was very good value and would definitely stay here again.
