Abercroft house, hidden away down a long driveway, behind large palm trees, is by far the most interesting accommodation I have ever rented.

This is a wonderful, private spot to stay. The house is delightful with a wonderful paneled sitting room with a fascinating fireplace made from fossilized stone, 2 bedrooms and a sun room. Lots is extras like fresh fruit and flowers, biscuits and milk served in an old-fashioned milk bottle. Fantastic value for money. Why would you stay at a motel...

About the neighbourhood
The apartment is part of the main house, which is set back 100m from the road. Although the town is only minutes away, it feels like being out in the country, with trees and a creek bordering the property.

There is ample parking right outside your own separate entrance.

Abercroft House is ideally situated to take advantage of all that Wanganui has to offer, including the river, the beach, the walks, the fabulous museum and art gallery, the river traders' market and much more. Mt Ruapehu is only just over an hour's drive away, as is Mt Egmont.
