151 on London
Ranked #8 of 26 Hotels in Whanganui
Reviewed 25 January 2014

We stayed one night at 151 on London and were very happy with the service and the cleanliness of the accommodation. The motel is quite new (about 5 years old in 2014) and well designed. They have a lovely children's playground as well as a small gym. There is a great café located on site also.

Thank you for feedback we appreciate it. Our playground is great for the children to stretch their legs after long journeys.

We recently stayed in a two bedroom apartment. Location: Pretty good - within a short walk to local amenities and a 30 minute walk to the riverside. Value for money: Good. Room - Nice size, well equipped kitchenette, comfortable beds, bathroom well stocked with essential items. Staff: Helpful and friendly, without being in your face. Developmental points: Bedrooms (upstairs, flat roof) oppressively stuffy, no fans. Windows: Could not be left open due to traffic noise from the main road next to the hotel. Furniture: The sofa and seats in the main room are made from black vinyl and we quickly found ourselves sticking to them; the solution - we ended up sitting on bath towels! Would I recommend the hotel: Yes - a few tweaks to the room such as providing fans upstairs and throws on the furniture would sort out an niggles. Generally, a pleasant stay.

This was a terrific find, thanks to all the tripadvisor reviews before me recommending 151 on London!

Stayed 2 quiet nights in this clean, well positioned motel and was pleasantly pleased. If US motels were like this, I would consider staying at them rather than turning the other way.

Partner & I stayed for 1 night in the executive suite (No. 23) & it was clean & modern. It was just what we needed esp. after having gone rafting & having driven from River Valley Lodge. There is also a big bathtub with which I treated myself to a hot bubble bath. Staff are super friendly. Highly recommend this place!

My family and I like to stay in two bedroom apartments for the convenience of having lots of room and cooking facilities. This room was perfect and very well equipped. It is within walking distance of three major supermarket outlets.
Michael the host was very friendly and helpful making our stay even better.

Fantastic service here. We only came for two nights, but would happily come back here again.
We were offered (and took up the offer) to have our motorbike in their garage. Didn't have to ask..
The room is well proportioned, with a comfortable bed. We had a wheelchair accessible room with the large shower. Warm enough, and quite quiet.
Staff also uber helpful and friendly. Even offered to ring several places to get us somewhere to eat (we stopped on christmas day).
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms should be a touch quieter. We had a heard of elephants above us.

Thank you for your feedback we appreciate it. The Cemetery Circuit is certainly a fab day out in Wanganui and it was great to have riders such as yourselves stay with us. We are fortunate to have the secure parking and able to look after your precious belongings. Look forward to hosting you next year.
