Disrespectful conversation with owner with accusations and inappropriate behaviour. Customer service unacceptable. Now would definitely not recommend as little attempt to remedy. Very disappointing. No excuse for this conduct.

This review follows a dispute with the guest who had unpaid guests in her room. The same guest previously left a 10/10 review on Booking.com.

We loved our one night stay at Kings Court Motel. We were in the Executive One-bedroom Apartment and it was very spacious, beautifully decorated and extremely clean. The bed was King size bed was very comfortable and we did not hear any traffic noise and slept well. It was close to the main street of interesting shops and you can easily walk there. The supermarket was just a 5 minute walk too. We would definitely recommend Kings Court Motel and it will be our first choice when we next visit Whanganui. (Whanganui is a beautiful town!)

Was the best most comfortable motel we stayed in after being away 8 nights. Was really clean, good blackout blinds, good sized bathroom, separate toilet. Comfortable couch to sit on with lovely bright cushions. Although the beds were on the soft side they were comfortable. Good shower . Plenty of space in the unit. Very helpful welcoming owners. Good information on places to see and things to do. Will definitely be back next time we are in Whanganui 😁

Stayed here for two nights and found the location quiet for being in the centre of town. Room was a decent size and well stocked. We found that the motel was with in walking distance from shops, supermarkets and restaurants. Owners very friendly and accommodating
