Rutland Arms

Victoria Ave. and Ridgeway St., Wanganui, Manawatu-Wanganui, 4500, New Zealand

Reproduction Victorian furniture and lots of mahogany make this renovated Edwardian inn in the center of Wanganui a top choice if you're looking for elegance and character. Four suites have whirlpool baths, including the special-occasion Captain Laye Suite, which has a double whirlpool. Downstairs, the restaurant–bar has traditional English character with a Kiwi twist: expect a cozy roaring fire (in winter), lots of delightful old Wanganui pictures on the walls, a wide choice of imported beers, and more than 50 single-malt whiskies. You can eat here or in the quiet, sunny courtyard.
