    This response is a follow up to the rude emails, abusive calls and social media attack Jackie has embarked on. The team feel there is nothing to gain by engaging further with her and we wish the newly weds a happy future.

    Reviewed 9 April 2015

    Well positioned, very clean and tidy, large spa in each room, very comfortable. 3 supermarkets within a few metres, service station alongside. Sited in the main sreet, but at the quietest end. A drive up the Whanganui River is worh the effort.
