“An excellent motel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

We recently spent two nights at BK's Magnolia Lodge in Wanganui. This proved to be an excellent choice.The deluxe studio room was really spacious, spotlessly clean and very reasonably priced.The continental breakfast provisions delivered to the room on the evening prior were fresh, tasty and plentiful. The managers were friendly, welcoming and helpful in every way. The location of the Motor Lodge meant an easy short walk to the centre for restaurants and shopping, We highly recommend BK's Magnolia Wanganui.

I would like to say that we stayed at BK Magnolia when there was a storm on. We had a lovely clean unit and the young lady who was looking after the place while the managers were away was superb. She was a lovely person and went out of her way. The breakfasst she made was awesome and we had only planned to stay 1 night but stayed for 2. Our unit was no 15 and the spa was lovely as were the beds etc. It had a heatpump and 2x tvs. It was clean as anything and spacious. Thanks for a great getaway stay. Pity about the weather. To the manager-you have a really nice person looking after your motel.

I picked this as a good motel at which to stay after reading previous reviews. We were thrilled with the choice. The lady at reception could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The motel unit was more spacious than most and had one bedroom with a queen bed and a single bed in the lounge. Both were very comfortable with good quality bedding. The sitting area had two comfortable arm chairs with a standard type lamp for reading. The table easily seated three for a meal. The bathroom was also bigger than is the norm and well equipped. Everything was scrupulously clean. Parking was right outside the door and there was an outside sitting area as well adjacent to where we parked the car. I will definitely return to this motel when I am staying in Wanganui again in the future. It is very well located close to restaurants but it is on a quiet street.

Sue and I stayed here on our way to Taranaki for a business trip. We arrived later in the evening but this was no problem for the lovely lady at the front desk. The rate was excellent value and most of all the friendliness of the host matched the warmth of the room, nice and cosy! We were so impressed we made a point of staying here the night on our return trip. We enjoyed a spa bath unit on our return trip. The spa baths are huge and just awesome after a cool day on the road. Thanks a lot! We will be back definitely :-) Owen and Sue. Blenheim, NZ

I stayed here more for getting a host accomodation stamp as I have stayed at BK's New Plymouth and without looking thought they were also on program, they weren't. Internet was charged for as well.

Great Friendly Welcome, however the Decor and lighting was a bit dated...

We had a nighmarish time with another hotel in Wanganui and found this place. The owner was very friendly and the rooms were great. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting accommodation in Wanganui..

Room Tip: Pick the ones with the SPA as they have a Stove

Having previously stayed at 2 more expensive 'hotels' in Wanganui which were very average experiences I was not holding out much hope for another stay in the town. However this motel was fantastic. The welcome from the owner was fantastic and genuine. I was given a great studio room which exceed my expecations. It was a generous studio with good kitchenette and the bonus was a spa bath. The decor is very good and the room was spotless. The little extra's are a nice touch (good toileteries, some lollies and a small selection of drinks/snacks. Thanks for a wonderful stay and I will highly recommend the motel to work colleagues.
