Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had a nice queen bed and a fairly spacious room with a good bathroom. There was a small fridge, microwave and kettle with coffee/tea etc. good advice on local restaurants and sights. Couldn't really ask for much more.

The staff we met were exceptionally friendly and helpful - even for New Zealand where you soon come to take friendly service for granted. We had an "executive" room which came with the unexpected bonus of a small patio. The room was large and well equipped. The laundry facilities are free which was a pleasant surprise. The location is convenient and easy to find.

We had only night in Wanganui and Siena was a very nice and friendly place to stay. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. The hotel was quiet for being on the road. Parking was a bit odd and the restaraunt recommendations were difficult but the hotel was very cleans and spacious. Cheers, GH

We stayed in a one bedroom spa unit - it was extremely clean and tidy and plenty of room for the 3 of us. The sofa bed was made up ready for our son to use and Noel gave us a demo on how to use. Separate bedroom had it's own tv which was great. Well located close to restaurants/takeaways and supermarkets. The welcome basket was lovely. We opted for breakfast the next morning which was very tasty and extremely well priced. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. Like you, so many people comment on our favourable location, being so close to supermarkets, restaurants and fast food outlets, and a service station and ATM just across the street. We do appreciate you taking the time to post a review, and we look forward to you staying with us again sometime.

Very friendly hosts, Noel & Marie & our room was spotlessly clean & beautifully presented. The bathroom had every amenity possible and was like a luxury spa. Our room was spacious and the kitchen had lots of extras including paper towels and glad wrap. The location was close to resturants, take away outlets and supermarkets. We would highly recommend to everyone.

Room Tip: We selected a spa bath room.

I concur with the other reviews. Attention to detail is what makes this motel outstanding - from the welcome basket of goodies to the pristine presentation of crockery, cutlery and other kitchen implements. Add to that genuinely friendly owners, a quieter than quiet heat pump and dedicated parking spaces, and I understand the Siena's number one rating on Trip Advisor. I recommend spending that bit more and getting an executive studio - the luxury of a spa bath and my own private patio, together with a small flatscreen TV, iPod dock, CD player and DVD player, made my two night stay perfect. Location was perfect too - supermarkets, fabulous cafe all within a stone's throw. Will definitely be staying again.

Room Tip: If you're not used to street noise, take some earplugs.

Two nights here on a recent trip to Wanganui. From the road the place looks a little unpromising but the reception staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was excellent. Very warm, and surprisingly quiet despite being 20-30 metres away from Victoria Ave. Impeccable presentation.
