Quiet comfortable friendly accommodation in central Wanganui. Clean rooms, kitchenette and spa bath with water that was hot and did not run out. Modern rooms with plenty of room to stretch out and unwind in style. Great for a stay or the night and even longer. Will definitely return next time we are in the district.

The staff at B-Ks Motor Lodge were extremely knowledgeable at about the Whanganui Region in general and gave us very helpful advice about the attractions. Their recommendation of driving to Pipireke and taking a boat trip up the Whanganui River to access the walking track to the Bridge To Nowhere was definitely the highlight of this trip. Then to come... More

MoteThe owners were very friendly & the Motel rooms were clean with a nice size spa bath, the location worked perfectly for being walking distance to all the shops.

My husband and I recently stayed two nights at B-K's Magnolia Motor Lodge. From the moment of our first contact with Brian, we experienced friendly helpful service from both him and Kathy. Our unit was spotlessly clean, well equipped and very comfortable - even Lazy-Boy recliner chairs in the living area. As we told Brian when we checked out -... More

Brilliant place to stay in Wanganui. Our room, a studio, was very spacious and the spa bath was so relaxing. Very clean and comfortable. Price was great and the hospitality of the hosts was great as well. We ordered a cooked breakfast and it was good. Enjoyed our night here very much.

This motel just off Victoria Ave is clean and well priced. Great hosts and very welcoming. The mattress is firm and comfortable but for some reason when you move the entire bed 'wobbles' - could be the base it's on or the legs. Would recommend a stay here if stopping in Wanganui.

We do not often stay overnight in Wanganui, but when we do, try to stay at this motel, as we have always found the standard very high, owners/operators very welcoming, and cost reasonable. Our recent visit when we were lucky to obtain the last room available showed those qualities continue to be upheld. We had a spacious studio unit, with... More

Magnolia Motor Lodge is on a side-street near the centre of town so it's handily located but with no road noise, which is a blessing! The rooms are a good size and of good quality: the bathroom and kitchenette are modern, the beds are springy and comfortable, and there's plenty of off-street and on-street parking. The kitchen includes a stove-top... More

This hotel is very tidy, clean and roomy. Great value for money. It is at the back quiet street of the main street. My wife forgot the phone charger and we were called very soon before we left the Whanganui.
