About
Description
We are a small family run motel right opposite the Wanganui Racecourse and the Hatrick Raceway (the Greyhound racing) very close to town centre. We moved to Wanganui Whanganui 18 months ago to take over this More motel in that time we have learnt so much about this lovely city and what it has to offer. If you have not been here come check us out I’m sure you will agree Wanganui Whanganui has so much to offer. Less
