Situated just 1 km from the central city in a lovely semi-rural location. Boutique style rooms include a double bedroom, private bathroom, separate toilet, amenities space and your own balcony with lovely rural views. The central city is a very pleasant short walk beside the Whanganui river.
Long time local Whanganui resident, and very pleased to be able to help you with any and all information and tips regarding your Whanganui stay! We have a great city location - being close to the central city, but our street looks and feels rural. It's a very pleasant walk into the city, along a tree lined street and beside the major river - the gateway to the Whanganui National Park. Wanganui is a lovely city - it's very green and leafy with great geography, including river and sea landscapes. It's also well sited as a great gateway to the Central Plateau, Taranaki and Egmont National Park, and is just a 2.5 hour drive to Wellington.
The neighbourhood feels like you're in the countryside but great city amenities are so conveniently close by. It is walking distance (at most 15 mins) to the city and great cafes, restaurants, bars, galleries, movie theatres, a glass studio, the main shopping street, a supermarket and the tourist information office. It is very green and leafy, with lots of native NZ flora and birds. The Whanganui River is located just down the hill, 10 minutes away. There's a 15 minute walk up Durie Hill to the Memorial Tower where after a wee climb you get the most fantastic 360 degree views of Wanganui - Mt Taranaki, Mt Ruapehu, the river, the sea, the city, the suburbs, and if timed right, the sunset into the sea to the west. The unique elevator (one of only two in the world) that travels through Durie Hill to its peak is also nearby. There are many pleasant loop walks "Around the Bridges", of varying length that give lovely views of the city, its suburbs and the river. According to a number of guests, Wanganui is NZ's "best kept secret". It is also a great gateway to New Plymouth, National Park and the central plateau, or Wellington if you are travelling south.
