We stayed at Siena Motor Lodge recently and found it to be absolutely superb. To start with, our host (Ronald) was very friendly and extremely helpful; our unit was very well appointed and was spotlessly clean; it was nice and warm (thanks to the heat pump), and the bowl of complimentary "goodies" was very much appreciated. Congratulations, Ronald and team,... More

My family stayed at Siena Motor Lodge one night. The room is very clean and fully furnished. The bathroom is as good and clean as you'd expected for a house, you kinda feel that the room has not been frequently used. The owner/manager (Ronald) is very friendly and helpful, personally guided us to our room, and brought us our breakfast.... More

Siena is very central in Wanganui . I stay at motels a lot and I would not stay anywhere else in Wanganui after staying here. It is very warm which is essential for me in the middle of winter, and equipped with everything you need.

A lovely place to stay. Scrupulously clean. Heat pump was a bonus as the weather was cold at night while I was in Wanganui. Great location too - far enough away from the central hub for peace and quiet in Victoria Avenue, but close enough to access everything too. The little goodie basket was a treat as well with fruit...

I stayed at this establishment last month for a 3-night business trip while working at the hospital. I found the accommodation to be very clean and comfortable with everything I needed ready and waiting. I stayed in one of the one-bedroom units, which was furnished with an all-in-one lounge, kitchen and dining and a separate bedroom with a double bed... More
