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

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.

Having done some research on trip adviser and read the reviews I can honestly say I cannot find any faults whatsoever with the Siena Motor Lodge. The room was incredibly clean, there was heaps of room, great shower pressure and the small bowl of nibbles and fruit a lovely touch. The manager gave us two great recommendations for dinner which...

We have stayed at this Motor Lodge on many occasions and have always found it excellent. Rooms great and hosts friendly and helpful. Loved the breakfasts, would go again just to have this wonderful breakfast. Always recommend this motel to friends.

Second time I have stayed here, and the reception fella is as cool as a cucumber, real helpful, real friendly, even asking how my Indian meal was the night before so he could pass on feedback to other future motel guests. Rooms are modern, clean, and quiet. Don't even think of staying anywhere else when in Wanganui, Some places deliver... More

This was a really nice motel. The room was spacious, the location was central, and the woman who was running it that day (the owner was out of town) was friendly and caring. One other reviewer called it "a real gem," and that perfectly sums it up. I loved the motel, and the woman was far more helpful than the... More

I have stayed here 3 or 4 times now and each time, years apart, it has been very good. The rooms are a bedroom and sitting area plus a little kitchen area, really comfortable with a few little touches left by the owner / staff to help you feel at home. Owner is really friendly and helpful breakfast is brought... More

A great NZ motel in an older style that really could teach some newer places how to do things. Unit 9 had a very well equipped kitchen, spa bath, decent sized fridge, complimentary snacks & even a small private courtyard. The room was very comfortable, and the owners friendly. Complimentary laundry & Wifi round the package off. The location is... More
