SML has comfortable units and is about a 15 minute walk into the centre of town. Welcome was warm and genuine and we got some good advice about what do. The free wifi was a bonus as was the free morning paper. We only stayed a couple of nights but would certainly consider a revisit in the future.

We were not sure about whether a motor lodge could be so highly regarded, but this place was great. Stayed here one night over labour weekend in 2014. Staff very friendly, breakfast was lovely, the room was spotless with a nice bathroom, and comfortable bed. Walking distance to central town and well placed for heading north by car up the... More

I chose Siena based on other reviews, which said it was neat, clean and friendly. I would now say that most reviews were understated. The hospitality is great, with easy service at any time - advice on where to go / eat / things to do, dvd's to borrow etc. The room was quiet during our stay, with the heat... More

It's the little touches that make this the place to stay. We enjoyed the complimentary snack basket when we arrived. The hosts were so friendly and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean. Towels were soft and bed very comfortable. For a simple motel they give great value for money.

Very pleasant breakfast that was delivered in the dot. Really appreciated the complimentary bowl of fruit and snacks, and choice of full fat or... More

We stayed this weekend while visiting family. The owner was very friendly and welcoming, very genuine. The room was large enough for our short stay and has been refitted relatively recently, and was very clean. It had great information about the hotel and the city, places to eat, taxis, etc, and they have a laundry service and can do breakfast.... More

We were very warmly greeted by our hosts which was much appreciated. Our studio was compact but pleasant. The bathroom looked as if it had been upgraded and the spa bath was much appreciated. Altogether a very good experience. Thank you both.

Been and stayed at several other hotels & motels in Wanganui over the past few months on business and the Siena if far by the best place to stay, clean, comfortable and run by a great team. Only advice is book early as they often are fully booked during the week.

Thank you for your review - it is pleasing to see that you view our motel most favourably in comparison to other Wanganui accommodation. Your comment re early booking is most pertinent, especially for Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as we have a loyal group of regular returning guests that stay on those nights. We look forward to having you stay... More

Had to stay in Wanganui for 3 nights for a conference and the recommended chain motels weren't exciting me one bit. A check o Trip advisor tossed up this little gem so I booked. A family run motel, these people went the extra mile. I was late in arriving, so I phoned ahead. They had my curtains drawn and the... More

We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your three night stay with us. A sincere thank you for submitting such a comprehensive review of our motel. We do preheat our rooms on cold nights - a warm room seems more welcoming for our guests, and our new air conditioning units that we have throughout the property, do work a... More

What can I say about this superb Motel???? Everything from check in to check out was brilliant. These rooms are spotlessly clean. There is a basket of complimentry goodies to enjoy during your stay. I highly recommend this motor lodge for your business or holiday trip to Wanganui.
