  • The house was a real home away from home

    The house was a real home away from home. Extremely clean and tidy and all the little extras that make a stay special. Super comfortable beds. Nice warm fire on a freezing night. We totally recommend this property and will definitely stay again next time we are in Wanganui! Great location too.

    Extremely good value for money, the best I have experienced through Bookabach to date. There were so many little gestures which were greatly received. I highly recommend this property.
