We have been staying at Anndion Lodge on weekends for the last 4-5 months as we have been renovating our property in Whanganui. Gary and Cath have been just awesome accommodating us. We have stayed in various rooms, apartments all perfectly equipped and spotless. Even when they have been fully booked they managed to get a room for my husband and I. Thank you both so much.

I paid for the booking I'm advanced so I was set. We turned up and.the manager demanded we pay the entire room fee AGAIN to cover the room. I said we are here under difficult circumstances and only had enough available funds left to get fuel and food for our stay, he said oh well you have to pay again sorry. So my partner and I chose to pay again and not eat, over sleeping in our cat as I am heavily pregnant. I gave him my card but his machine did not work and I had no other cards, so I was told to leave and you would refund my money at a later date. I said but if you do this we will have absolutely nowhere to stay and no money as the refund will take days. And I could go get the money out but He just said oh well and shut the door in our faces. I am VERY upset by this and now have no way to eat for our stay as we had to use our money to book a different motel. These people are awful and very rude.

Stayed here on a short break. Has good facilities. They had a few minor problems at the time, but management handled it all superbly. As far at value for money was concerned we could not fault it. The Spa was OK, the Sauna was Infrared and a bit of a let down if you like a really good sauna. There is normally a $15 surcharge not advertised/stated Agoda (a bit steep for what it is) for the Sauna. Some rooms are close to a very busy road, so check room if you have problems with noise. But I would not hesitate to stay here again and would be great with young families as close to the very popular play area on Anzac Parade.
