A haven of peace and nature close to Wanganui and its river. Very nice, capable and helpful owners, free Wifi and washing machine. Very good shower. Hikurangi StayPlace is indeed a place to stay.

Very nice staff, quiet and clean room, big kitchen and lounge, table tennis, garden, free use of washing machine and drier. Had a perfect stay!!!

Proprietors were AWESOME. Will definitely stay again next time down that way.

Thank you Theo for​ a wonderful visit and stay over for our very large whanau of 14 members. The family wanted to pass onto you both that we thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful hospitality and the accommodation was superb for a large family to stay.
The effort you went to to make our disabled sister's room more able friendly was very much appreciated. The rooms were all well appointed and everyone was really happy and very satisfied with everything. We loved the use of the family room and also the games room was just what we needed to enable us to have some fun together and generally catch up. We came from Whangarei, Auckland, Hamilton, Opunake, Rotorua and Gisborne so the accommodation was perfect for us all. The price was very affordable.
We look forward to another stay at Hikurangi StayPlace in the future and will recommend to all our networks and friends.
