We booked a studio at theis motel due to its good recommendation and were not disappointed. We were upgraded to a one bedroom appartment on arrival which was a nice surprise. The rooms were clean comfortable and spacious with good parking outside each unit and a table and chair The equipment was thoughtfully provided to make the stay as easy as possible. There was a good supermarket nearby and it was a short walk into town with it's pleasant main street containing many shops and restaurants. Noel and his wife were very helpful and welcoming and we would certainly encourage others to stay here.

The unit we were in, number 9 has a fabulous spa bath which was a hit with a very sore boy after rowing all day. The DVD library at reception was also another great perk, just nice having that option as well as SKY movies. The treats on the table in the bowl - chocolate bar, fruit and crackers were a really nice touch. Noel was great, we have re-booked our next stay. The cafe called Parnell's next door was very good for breakfast or lunch with a lovely selection of gelato. The supermarket is opposite which is handy. We will be staying there a lot over the years, perfect place to stay if you need to visit Wanganui Collegiate as it is just around the corner! It was super clean, could not have had a cleaner bathroom or kitchen area. Plenty of towels etc. Fabulous!

Room Tip: A spa bath is a nice extra. Close the windows at night (double glazed and reduces any noise). In s...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Yes - we are well located close to supermarkets, Parnells cafe and Wanganui Collegiate School, and our cleaning staff are very diligent in ensuring that our rooms are spotlessly clean. We look forward to having you stay again.

I booked a one bedroom unit and a studio for one night. Noel could not have been more helpful, to the extent of even removing a dead bird from my car's grille. Rooms are spotless and quiet with toiletries and nice touches like biscuits and fruit provided. This is the place to stay in Wanganui.

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.
