Reviewed 23 May 2013

We just stayed at this place , wellcoming host , very dated room and damp smell throughout , however the bed was very clean but not to comfortable to our personal taste . We paid $20 each for a full english breakfast that was delivered to our room , which arrived cold and was nothing like a Full english breakfast we were expecting , very very disappointed on the overall experience , will not stay here again and defo not recommend it to anyone !!!

Sonja is very welcoming and extremely helpful with local information and helping to book local services. Rooms are very clean and comfortable in quiet surroundings. Location is nicely on the outskirts of town, close to the river but within an easy stroll to the lively town centre. Rates are very reasonable.

Older style cabin-type accommodation. Spotlessly clean. Comfy beds. Nice doonas. Very handy location. Friendly and helpful owners. They also were happy to accommodate our Maltese dog who always travels with us.

Very nice owners, we had 3 adults and 3 children stay in a family unit. Unit was outdated which we knew about, but comfortable. Nice pllows and duvets.There was quite a bit of road noise through the night especially heavy trucks. Children slept well though. Rates very reasonable.

came across this motel at 11 PM, desperate for a place to stay for the night - and this was such a great find! great vibe in these little cottages, vintage radio, tiles, lots of space, and, uh, a trampoline and swingset in the yard? it's a really unique spot, affordable, and nice folks.

Myself and three friends stayed three nights at Acacia park and were blown away by the scenery and the helpfullness of the staff at the motel. Nothing was too much trouble. We went to Wanganui for bowls and were very comfortable. We had clean towlels and linen during our stay there. Wine glasses and extra towels were supplied at no hassle. The welcome we received was very joyful and the accommodation suited our needs. For a relaxing weekend, with river walks and close to town,we enjoyed the convenience to the greens-4 minutes and the shops. Congratulations to a well, run ship. The veteran international car rally was onand the motel was busy but everyone was so happy and contented and the accommodation was very adequate for our needs. We did not have any spiders. I think people are too fussy!!!!!!!!!!. We after all were only sleeping there and our TV did not go and it was fixed in a jiffy. I think the other people were at the wrong Motel? Could have had Sky BUT the prices woudl have gone up !!!!!! We were very happy. Were the other people in Dream world
Keep it up and we have booked again for 2013 Viv Hudson Levin

Room Tip: Just let them know what you need and they oblige willingly. I don't know what people are saying...

Thanks for your feedback much appreciated ...but then our happy guests don't have to spend their precious time surfing the net to bad mouth establishments, as they tell others verbally which is of much value to us. Unhappy guests make the time or have tooooo much time on their hands to bad mouth establishments on the net for personal reasons & have very high expectations BUT only want to pay very reasonable rates.... also trying to be a jurno or a critic....
