Reviewed 27 September 2013

Our unit was immaculately clean, and very well equipped, including little extras like glad wrap and paper towels.

The location was within walking distance to shops, restaurants and cafes, and our room was very quiet, located well back from the road.

The complimentary little basket of goodies was a nice touch, as was the filtered bottle of water in the fridge, it was also really nice to be given the choice of low fat milk on check in.

As we had come to expect, we received a very friendly welcome and were actually upgraded for free as one family wanted to stay an extra night. The room was immaculate, the bathroom had a powerful shower and a great spa bath. The kitchen area was very well equipped and the cleaners did an incredible job every day. We would stay here again like a shot.

The town itself is pleasant and it is well worth the trip up the river or to drive up the road that follows the valley which has some spectacular views.

I stay in a great number of motels, and its the little extra touches that make a stay more pleasant.
Arrival at 8pm, and the heater is on, the room is warm. A little compliments basket with goodies for the health conscious and then some sweet treats as well.

Unlike some places that give you two of everything in the kitchen - these were really well equipped,

Thank you, good service. I will be back

The Siena is basically the perfect motel. It's clean, well cared for, there was milk for tea when we arrived, the water pressure in the shower was excellent, the room was dark with the curtains closed, and the bed was comfortable. The only motel I'd stay at in Whanganui, it can't be beaten.

We stayed at the Siena Motor Lodge on the 4th August 2013 after our ski trip in Mt Ruapehu. Noel was kind enough to offer us some discount for the room which we had booked. The kitchen, as mentioned in other reviews, was really well equipped and we can even cook there if we wanted to.

Location is good as it is close to two hypermarkets and also restaurants. The room was clean and comfy. The service offered was really good. Siena also provides very good breakfast with reasonable price. Noel and his wife make an effort to deliver the breakfast to our room in the early morning!

We would highly recommend to whoever visiting Wanganui to stay at Siena Motor Lodge!

Room Tip: Ask for the breakfast coz Noel's wife make really tasty breakfast!

We stayed at the Siena Motor Lodge earlier in July, and what a treat it was. From the moment we walked into the office to check in, only to be greeted by name and walked personally to our unit by Noel, to the delicious breakfast (I highly recommend the French toast with bacon, bananas and maple syrup!), it was a wonderful experience. Our unit (I think it was number 8) was scrupulously clean with nice kitchen unit. Heater was powerful (which was good since it was cold outside), plus the bathroom had a ceiling heater and towel heaters. And for even more comfort, the bed had his/her side mattress heaters. The goodie basket was a great touch, plus the honey shampoo was much appreciated. We highly recommend staying at the Siena Motor Lodge.

Thank you for your most complimentary review of our motor lodge. Especially pleased to see that you enjoyed our French Toast breakfast option - a lot of our guests comment on the variety and value of our breakfast menu. Even though it is mid-winter and well away from the peak tourist season, we are still having international guests like yourselves stay. Your kind comments will hopefully see that trend continue.

I have been staying here for over 6 years and the excellence has never faded. The rooms are extremely clean and are always being updated. The kitchen is well equipped if you like to cook for yourself, but is close to restaurants if you perfer and the cooked breakfasts available are excellent. The real coffee for the plunger is well appreciated, as is the bowl of goodies!
Noel and Marie are wonderful hosts and their attention for detail is faultless.
I would highly recommend this motel.
