Stayed for one night as a stop over between West and East coast. Postives: quiet location, clean and tidy room. Ample sized space for two people, well equipted kitchen, parking outside the door to the unit. Friendly and helpful staff. Negatives: bed was not a pocket spring design so very easy to cause partner disturbance, cold room with only a small fan heater for heating. Overall a good stay and value for money - would stay again.

Lovely comfortable motel in the heart of the town, with everything you could need for a motel stay. Comfortable beds with great bathroom and fully stocked kitchen, and quite. We could park up and walk up the town to the river. The lovely hosts Mandy and husband were a great help with local knowledge. Would recommend this accommodation .

Great location and very clean and quiet. The motel minders, Shelagh and Ross, were most helpful and hospitable. Easy walk into town. Outdoor tables by each unit with chairs. We did enjoy our stay here.

We had been staying at this property multiple times in the last few years but things have changed. Our stay required a quiet room as we were visiting the town for a competition & the new owners assured us every room is quiet. However that is not the case. We stayed in room #4 and on two nights (out of 4) there were people drinking & talking loudly outside our room until at least 10pm (the 1st night was till 10.30pm when the owners told them to pack up). There is also a very bright floodlight in the neighbouring car yard over the back fence that shines into the room. The mattress on the bed is also very soft, to the extent that on a shared bed, if someone moves, the other person is awoken. During our 4-night stay, the kettle shorted out the electricity supply but the owners replaced it immediately with no further issues. The new owners are lovely and friendly and are making efforts to upgrade the rooms. Perhaps things might be better in the future.

Response from Paul and Mandy Evans, Owner at Kings Court Motel
Responded 5 May 2021
Hi Victoria, thanks for taking the time to post a review. We regularly have guests comment on how quiet the Motel is in terms of lack of noise from the surrounding area, especially as we are so centrally located. We do have notices in our rooms, and in the in-room compendiums, asking guests to be respectful of others late at night and early in the morning. Unfortunately not everyone reads or respects such requests and we do occasionally have to ask people to desist if they are talking outside at a late hour. Thankfully this does not happen often but can happen at any Motel and we are sorry that you had your sleep disturbed during your stay. The lights from the neighbouring car yard is being dealt with by the use of additional blinds at the back windows and, as you have noted, we are completing other upgrades to the rooms, including the beds. We hope to see you again next time you are in Whanganui.
