A warm and friendly greeting to a conveniently located and easy to find motel. A short walk to the riverside, local shops and eateries. A comfortable and relaxed stay on our North Island tour. My free internet was topped up without having to ask, very thoughtful.

This place had all the comforts of home and Noel was very helpful in figuring out the schedule of the paddle steamer Waimarie (which didn't jive with its website). We ordered breakfast in the room and the omelette rolled up with smoked salmon was delicious and came with a very nice relish of avocados, tomatoes, and onions. This was delivered... More

Visiting Wanganui relatives and needed a place to call home for a night. Based on the stellar reviews, we chose this place. It was clean, clean, clean and even had a small kitchenette, so we were able to fix our own breakfast. Only drawback was the internet is limited to a certain amount of usage, but as soon as I...

Before we had even arrived, Noel and Marie, our so gracious proprietors, had upgraded us to a larger room, one with a private garden full of impatiens and cool air. The room was impeccably clean.Plus, their manner was so friendly and their local knowledge was so helpful that they stood above what was generally great kindness to travelers throughout New... More

Sometimes staying in small towns can be a bit hair-raising. But, for my first overnight in Wanganui we stayed at the Seina Motor Lodge and I confess, I would go back in a heart-beat. Lovely room, plenty of space, really nicely equipped, decent size wine glasses (!), fluffy towels (bliss) and bath robes (heaven!), outside seating area and great service.... More

We had one night here on a trip round North Island and were pleased we had chosen it. The place was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The welcome was very friendly and the breakfast delivered bang on time.

Second last night in NZ 16 Jan, we wanted a nice place and lucked in! What a great hotel, great service, lovely hosts. Newly renovated room, really comfortable and despite being on a main road it was relatively quiet. The restaurants and main part of time are about 10-15mins walking distance and the town is very picturesque. The breakfast was... More

We were staying 4 nights at Siena Motor Lodge while we tried to prepare our kids for starting school at the Wanganui Collegiate School. Siena Motor Lodge is only a 5 minutes' walk to the school. We have lived in 5 star hotels around the world, but we were so impressed with how clean the motel is and the excellent... More

We have stayed in most of Wanganui's motels and this motel is deservedly number 1 so rather than bore you lets just say it ticks ALL the boxes. Sorry but the TripAdviser IT thingy has just told me that this review has to be at least 200 characters so hopefully I have just achieved that milestone 😃
