“A real gem”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

I have stayed here 3 or 4 times now and each time, years apart, it has been very good. The rooms are a bedroom and sitting area plus a little kitchen area, really comfortable with a few little touches left by the owner / staff to help you feel at home. Owner is really friendly and helpful breakfast is brought to your room each morning, there is a good restaurant around the corner - quality Inn - a few shops nearby and the town centre is a reasonable walk. internet free and works, parking out side of the room. I would recommend the Siena Lodge and will stay here again.

A great NZ motel in an older style that really could teach some newer places how to do things. Unit 9 had a very well equipped kitchen, spa bath, decent sized fridge, complimentary snacks & even a small private courtyard. The room was very comfortable, and the owners friendly. Complimentary laundry & Wifi round the package off. The location is very convenient... Coffee shop 1 min away, New World across the road & various fast food restaurants within 5 mins. Great cooked breakfast on offer too! An excellent choice in the area.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Siena & again we were looked after very well indeeed, by Noel & Marie. Very good hospitality & located ten minutes walk from the main City area. Quiet & relaxing as well, if you just wish to `chill` somewhat, the Siena should suit most travellers.

Room Tip: We used the one bed units, gives that little extra space.

My wife and I stayed at the Siena Motor Lodge for 2 nights during our 3 month bicycle trip all over NZ - many experiences accomodation-wise and this one was among the best.
Friendly and charming hosts, spotlessly clean room, good shower, fully equipped in-room kitchen. A load of thoughtful and considerate ammenities and details: welcome basket with sweets (refilled for 2nd night!), stereo, dvd-player (wide range to borrow at no charge), washer+dryer complimentary, free WiFi, soap/shower-gel dispenser AND small containers, milk on arrival etc.
Comfortable bed, quiet nights (location and decent windows).
All that at a very reasonable rate! Top value. Highly recommendable!

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

Excellent stay at the Siena Lodge. Very helpful staff and service. Recommendation of Oaks restaurant round the corner turned out to be one of the best meals we had on our trip. Easy reach of the river and rest of town by foot. If planning a stop over then I would highly recommend this accommodation.

The service at this motel was incredible. They are so warm and kind and really go out of their way to provide a great experience. Complimentary snacks in teh room, a newspaper if you want it. Truly lovely people. The room was clean and well provisioned for self-catering. A very nice experience. Our only complaint is that the beds are a bit past it and we fouind ourselves rolling into a pile in the middle.

Room Tip: A room with a bathtub is available for only $10 more.
