I was late getting into town (I'd managed to get stuck turning around on a rural lane, my bad) and the owner, who was at the desk expressed relief that I'd shown up. I was also a bit late in that I'd managed to erase the email with the exact address and was having a somewhat maddening time finding the...

Stayed overnight when travelling back north and found the place spotless and everything you could possibly need was available. Apparently 4 star qual mark is the highest you can get in Wanganui but it scores a perfect five in my book.
