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 😃

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.
