What a pleasant stay. On arrival Ronald greeted us and explained our room facilities. Our room was well appointed and QUIET despite the hotel being located off the main street. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Siena Motor Lodge to prospective guests.

Stayed here for the first time, despite many visits to Wanganui I had not heard of this motel. Check in was a breeze and the little pack of goodies was appreciated. The best was yet to come at last a motelier in the modern world, very generous wifi package and Trackside on the TV package. We will be back.

We are sorry to hear that you found it a little cold. We would have gladly supplied you with a extra blanket and would have given advise about the lovely electric blankets on the beds. We have replaced all the beds with deluxe Queen beds. We hope that you will revisit our motel to experience our upgrade.

We stayed at Siena Motor Lodge recently and found it to be absolutely superb. To start with, our host (Ronald) was very friendly and extremely helpful; our unit was very well appointed and was spotlessly clean; it was nice and warm (thanks to the heat pump), and the bowl of complimentary "goodies" was very much appreciated. Congratulations, Ronald and team,...

My family stayed at Siena Motor Lodge one night. The room is very clean and fully furnished. The bathroom is as good and clean as you'd expected for a house, you kinda feel that the room has not been frequently used. The owner/manager (Ronald) is very friendly and helpful, personally guided us to our room, and brought us our breakfast....

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.
