“Great Customer Service, Tidy Rooms”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

The customer service at the Fiesta is possibly the best I have encountered at any motel in NZ. We received a very warm welcome from the owner (As-well as Basil The Cat!) and found out that there was unlimited fast WiFi and a selection of free DVDs in the office. Other motels that did not offer these services were at least $50 more expensive! There was a slight amount of traffic noise, but it was barely noticeable. The rooms were very clean and tidy, as-well as being relatively spacious. Overall, this motel is great value for money, tidy, clean, and I cannot fully express how nice the owners are!

A clean and tidy motel, close to CBD and SH3. Good value and the proprietor is very friendly and able to give good advice on things to do and see in Wanganui. He obviously does not buy into the "here's your key, there's you unit, next please" ethos. I recommend this place and would definitely stay there again. I do not support the review from Marleen B, was she at another motel maybe?

Thank you so much for the positive review. My wife and I have also traveled extensively and often received very 'basic' service so when we purchased the Fiesta Court we decided we would always try that much harder to provide that 'extra' service. Nice to know its appreciated. Look forward to seeing you again

Fiesta Court is a great little motel located very close to SH3 and the CBD in Wanganui. The unit we were in had recently been renovated, we had a very nice bathroom and a close car park. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and the room was excellent value for money. It’s not a 5 star hotel so if you are after that there are other options around, but was clean, tidy, comfortable and perfect for our requirements. Plus there is the added bonus of free Wifi. I would recommend if you are having a short stay in Wanganui and they are kid friendly too.

Sorry - Cannot agree with PORTE and Wood Family. Plastic Basin to wash our cups in. No cooking facilities what so ever. Toaster YES...... Bathroom was nice...... We had one sharp knife and that was a vegetable knife ..not much use when you cannot cook anything. I would give this place a wide birth if ever in Wanganui.

We are truly sorry you were disappointed that your studio unit did not have full kitchen facility's. When your group booking was made it was specifically pointed out that the studio units only have basic tea, coffee making facility's and a microwave. We were told that was all that was required. You obviously required a unit with full kitchen facility's. As a make good next time if you come back a full kitchen unit will be given to you at no extra cost.
In the future we will make it very clear to all group bookings what each unit contains.
I'm glad everything else was to your satisfaction.

Having traveled extensively throughout New Zealand, I discovered the Fiesta Court Motel in Wanganui.. What an absolute delight!! This motel would have to be one of the nicest motels that I have had the pleasure to stay in... Free Wi-fi to boot and, the service from Dave was nothing but first class...He bent over backwards to accommodate me, making sure that everything was effortless..Continental breakfast on request, snack bar in the room and free movies if required. Five minutes from the Wanganui Base hospital, makes the location of Fiesta Court ideal if visiting friends or relatives.. More so, it is just a few minutes from the center of the city and if in a wheelchair access to the shops around the corner is effortless..
What more can I say...Value for money...absolutely!! Clean fresh and refurbished, makes this your number 1 motel when visiting the town of Wanganui..

Room Tip: Rooms toward the back are the quiet ones...but all are great
