151 has gone downhill since our last stay last year. $160 a night for 2 of us and we had to stay a week as our house burned down and payment was covered by insurance. She tried to make us feel worthless. NO ROBES ANYMORE, NO BUBBLE BATH NO NOISE AFTER 7PM NO DOGS NO SMOKING OUTSIDE YOUR ROOM even though there are ash trays NOT ALLOWED TO RING THE OFFICE IF SOMETHINGS WRONG BECAUSE SHES TOO BUSY Microwave didn't work and I told her and she just brushed it off. NO LAUNDRY AS SHE PUT SIGNS ON THE DOOR SAYING GUEST LAUNDRY NOT AVAILABLE NO BBQ AS GAS BOTTLE EMPTY Definitely not good considering other motels have full kitchens for a cheaper price. Won't be going back there
We were met by a rude asian lady who kept yelling on her cellphone and was more interested in making sure I understood the quiet time from 7pm, no smoking in room and no dog rules. She also said If we have problems to ring the office then she said but dont ring the office because we busy. Then she showed me my room on the map and basically kicked out of the office. RUUUUDE. Went into our room and the paint is peeling in the bathroom, no bubble bath for the spa, the gym is now over run with clothes horses, rattling fan in the bathroom, no cooking facilities, no bathrobes. What was once a luxury motel has now become mediocre and I was made to feel more like a prisoner than a valued guest. 151 is no longer as good as it was. Considering I have stayed here a lot since it opened, I have noticed the decline…
We booked this motel based on reviews and the photographs in their brochure. We booked the two-bedroom apartment. Possibly a mistake. It's a decent enough motel in many ways. The furniture is comfortable the beds are comfortable, the wardrobes are decent and there is space to put your suitcases which was nice. There is hand cream and shoe polish. It is however about 40 minutes walk to the river, and least 20 minutes to the main shopping area, although there are plenty of close fast food options and their on-site restaurant if you get hungry. It is also close to supermarkets. The two bedrooms were up a narrow staircase, although it has a handrail which would hold up an elephant. But you might find it difficult to get large suitcases up there. The sofa bed in the lounge, which we didn't need should have been folded up to provide more room, as it was it was cramped. The biggest disappointment was the so-called soundproofing. It just didn't work – we could hear people talking in the next room, we could hear people talking outside, we could hear traffic noise, although being Wanganui it tended not to carry on through the night. So sleep quality wasn't the best. It's looking a little tired as well with chipped paint, chipped tiles, peeling veneer on one of the cupboards and cracks in at least one of the "leather" chairs. Servicing was nothing to write home about either. Beds were never made, which should have been made clear when we checked in (we actually don't have a great objection to the room not being serviced every day). Tea and coffee wasn't always replaced. The gym is also nothing like the photographs – 4 chairs and a table and 2 machines one of which didn't seem to be operable. Wouldn't recommend it.…
On Friday night the sleeping was ok but last night was so uncomfortable as the bottom sheet was not a fitted sheet it was a flat sheet and the shower was so good and the bottom sheets could do with a upgrade
From the most friendly welcome, the very clean facilities and excellent location we were most impressed with 151 on London. The receptionist was just lovely and so very helpful. The unit was clean, spacious and extremely comfortable. We were traveling with a 5 year old, so was disappointed the playground was out of bounds, but nevertheless the helpfulness and friendliness of all staff we encountered, including the cleaning staff, over road any upset. The location is ideal as 3 supermarkets a short walk away.
We hosted a meeting in the conference room and also booked two rooms for accomm. The accomm was very clean, modern and spacious. Service was excellent. Nothing was a problem and they accommodated our changing needs for the meeting effortlessly. The meeting room was a great size and well equipped. The lunch was not sufficient quantity for the number of guests. Would recommend ordering for more than you are catering for.
This use to be my favourite motel to stay at in Wanganui. But sadly not anymore. Yes still very clean and cleaning staff absolutely fabulous. Owners well 1 booked down stairs unit and was very specific that it had to be down stair at time of booking due to an injury. Arrived at motel at an earlier time than 2 pm which had also been discussed at time of booking and the room they had for us was upstairs which my husband had to insist we booked down stairs. Room not ready as staff had been told upstairs. Lovely cleaner and really felt for her apologies where it was not her fault. 2. Sky TV no longer available at motel so unable to watch Rugby against Aussie 3 They advertise Super Gold card on door and when In-Laws booked in for there room were told no we don't except Super Gold Cards. That is just 3 issues. Sorry but new owners not happy with any of this so now back to finding that new go to motel for trips to Whanganui…
Love the location. Great customer service. Our 1st room wasn’t suitable on the 1st night so requested to be moved. This was done with no fuss, thank you. We are repeat return customers and will defs return again. Rooms are clean and comfy. We prefer upstairs rooms are bright and airy.
We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit with a spa bath. The unit was spacious. The living area had a three person sofa that reclined, a three person dining table and a single bed. There was plenty of room and we never felt like our bags were in the way. The heat pump was great for taking care of the summer heat. The bedroom had a queen sized bed. The bathroom had a spa bath and shower. The unit overall was modern, clean and tidy. Supermarkets are just around the corner and the centre of town is a short drive away. The receptionist was helpful with sightseeing suggestions.
Would have given a higher review but for the noise of the trucks during the night which bother hubby who is a light sleeper. Although i did not notice but i am a heavy sleeper. Very clean and upon check in the lady told us the room was small and showed us a bigger room for a extra cost or the smaller cheaper room. For us we found the smaller room adequate as we were only staying one night and only planned to use room for sleeping & showering.
