A one night stay on 30 April in a 1 bedroom suite, absolutely spotless, very comfortable and quiet. Noel escorted us to the suite & explained everything. It was also good to see complimentary use of the laundry facilities - a great service Noel. Highly recommended, thanks again. David & Frosina McShane

Lovely quiet lodge only 15 minutes walk from the CBD. The room was very well equipped, clean, well decorated and comfortable. A great base for exploring Wanganui (a lovely town) and the wider area. We had a room with a courtyard, which was lovely and sheltered - good for reading with the odd glass of something cold.

The owners are very friendly and thoughtful. Every facility is good enough to satisfy for my family. It is well managed. The bath is excellent. Everything you need is there even the kitchen towel. I've never seen motor lodge has it.

Very clean, comfortable, safe and cozy. Noel was friendly and efficient when I arrived and the unit was equipped with everything I needed. Perfect for me on a one night business trip to Whanganui, and will definitely stay again when in town.

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.
