First time in Whanganui. We needed a place that was central and close to friends hosting a 21st. I saw Siena had good reviews so we booked 2 nights here. All very efficient, clean, warm and friendly. Also proved a good location from which to explore the town. Many thanks to out excellent hosts.

The facilities are very nice and wonderfully clean. Our hosts, Ron & Verne were extremely helpful on advising places to see - we took them up on their advice and now have a wonderful overview of Wanganui. We would definitely stay here again and advise anyone else that it is a great place to stay.

We stayed here over night as our house was being fumigated. The room was spotless- cleanest I've ever seen a motel!The owners were friendly and more then happy to accommodate us. Great stay. Great location too as we could walk down the road to grab some dinner. Would definitely be recommending to family and friends who come to town!

We stayed one night in this motel and it was one of the best hotels in which we stayed in 3 weeks in NZ. It's really a 4 stars Motel: double glazing, comfortable and modern furniture, spotless and possibility to go in the Fitness club besides the hotel free! Manager was very friendly and helpful. We recommend absolutely this motel!

My husband and I stayed for three nights at the Siena Motor Lodge in Whanganui. The owner, Ron, was incredibly helpful and made our stay a delight. We had an "executive" room with a courtyard. We could open the door to the lovely little green space and sleep with fresh air through the room. The bathroom was luxury with a...

Overnight stop. Chose to be close to restaurants and local activities. Great friendly welcome and very well equipped studio room with car at door. Bathroom very recently renovated and very stylish. Big thick towels. Even a welcoming bowl of goodies on table. Kitchenette fine for us. We walked into main street for a great thai meal. Good spot would return.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you found the lighting difficult, as the rooms have a dimmer switch we wonder if this may have played a role. Our beds are queens size as the room only can facilitate that size. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the breakfast.
