We are Mark (a local from Whanganui) and Karen (from Ireland). We will be pleased to recommend you our favourite places to eat, the things in Wanganui that you absolutely shouldn't miss and hope you will have a great stay with us! Our motel is the closest one to town; depending if you want to take the 'scenic route' along the river or the more direct 'residential' way you could be in our main street within 5 -10 minutes walk. Restaurants and cafes are all within walking distance, so are the historic riverboats that go up the Whanganui river, the art galleries, the museum etc. Our motel has 15 different units; are you looking for low-cost, for a room with a view, for a family unit or for a unit with a spa bath; we have it all!

I had the privilege to stay for a couple of night at the Riverview motel and it was a fantastic service by Dave (David). He was very professional and I can tell he's a people person and proud to serve anyone that walk into his office. Fortunately for me David upgrade me into a big room with a king size bed and spaces for one person. I enjoy my two nights staying there and would recommend this motel to anyone visiting Whanganui.

Booked at last minute. We had room 8, which had a king size bed, separate lounge area, bathroom and kitchenette. Clean but rather dated. The lazy boy chairs were rather worn in places, lounge area could do with net curtains for privacy. Boiler was terribly noisy, which was situated in the kitchen. Not sure what the socket was for in the bathroom but the hairdryer didn't work in it, and struggled to use it in bedroom as cord wasn't long enough to reach mirror.

The riverview motel was lovely. Very clean and tidy units. Kids loved the big spa bath. The owners were very nice and accommodating. As we needed last minute accommodation. Would certainly go back there again.
