To be honest this was a stop-off on the way between Taupo and Wellington. The motel was ideal and the management could not have been more obliging. They are trying hard to ensure the motel is the best it can be and it shows. The room was clean and well-equipped and, always the bottom line, I would not hesitate to... More

We spent one night in the motel. The hosts are excellent could not do enough for us. We had a room down the end of the property and it was excellent size with bed, lounge, dining table and chairs. Very quiet. Shower was excellent as well as the air conditioning. The pillows were very good. Nice surprise to get a... More

I could write a lot, but most of it has already been said in the reviews over the last few months. My wife is a pretty tough marker of hotels and motels and even she could not find fault here. For the money, I doubt you will do better. It is a pity that other accommodation providers do not have... More

Nice and clean rooms, but the best of all is the airconditioning. We stayed there on a very hot day, so the good working AC was very welcome. The goodie bowl makes a stay in this motor lodge also more special than elsewhere. Also the possibilty of using the free laundry. Siena is nearby large supermarkets and fast food restaurants....

My husband and I were driving through New Zealand from Auckland to Wellington and Whanganui was the last stop before we arrived in Wellington. We had been staying at simple motels along the way, expecting what you usually get for that price range. However Siena Motor Lodge exceeded all our usual idea of motel standards. From the minute we arrived,... More

We generally prefer B&B's to motor lodges but Siena has made us think again. We were stopping over in Whanganui on the way down South and plumped for Siena after reading such favourable reviews on TripAdvisor. They didn't exaggerate: this is a very clean, quiet motel, with a high standard of fixtures and fittings and real customer service at it's... More

We did an overnighter with the family. The lodge was well suited to our needs with very neat/tidy rooms and we were well received by the owners. Found the accommodation to be quite central to the city which was just down the drag. Will definitely stay there again when in Wanganui.
