A little About us

Established in 1958 by Graeme Simpson.

The Little Wanganui Hotel is nestled in between the lush green hills of the Kahurangi National park and the sandy beaches of the West coast, on the South Island of New Zealand. The Hotel is situated next to one of the country’s best white baiting rivers. Little Wanganui is a prime place for anyone who loves the outdoors or is needing a relaxing break in the beautifully quiet surroundings.
