Thanks for your question. We went to Jersualem after a long walk in the Whanganui Nationalpark - but weren't aware you could stay there.

Another idea would be to google for accommodation around Jerusalem near Whanganui. Hope this helps. Kind Regards Jost

We did not stay here, only had a look around but it looks comfy and welcoming.The website is available if you google Sisters of Compassion Jerusalem or Whanganui and there is a booking tab. Hope this helps. Cathy
