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 stay at several motels for work and I am very pleased to say this one tops it all. I am pretty observant on the cleanliness of where I stay. It is Very clean and such friendly service. Good size and comfortable one bedroom unit and had everything I needed. I would recommend this even for a personal stay.

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...

Having never stayed in Wanganui before, this motel was chosen for me by a business client and I could not fault it. Located conveniently in walking distance of the CBD and a variety of good restaurants, etc, the rooms are a good size, very well appointed and immaculately clean. The hosts, Ronald and Verne, were friendly, informative and always ready...

I have been coming to the Siena Motor Lodge since 2013 and stay one night every 2 weeks. I keep coming back because the rooms are always immaculate and clean, the added bonus is a lovely goodie basket waiting on the table when you get into your room.

Good establishment with most of the requirements for an apartment. Staff were extremely helpful and pleasant and were available at all times for any of our needs. Wi-Fi very week for which the Manager was most apologetic but there had been difficulties with the provider. The town itself is extremely quiet after about 6.00pm but very clean and tidy

What can I say? Clean rooms, a nice comfortable bed and the great hosts (who can happily answer any and all questions you throw at them). The location is good to...a wonderful cafe 2 doors down and if you don't fancy cooking, there are plenty of places nearby..mind you, the center of town is only a 2 minute drive away....
