It is wonderful to be welcomed with "Welcome Home" on arrival. We always stay at Siena Motor Lodge when we visit Wanganui. Ron is an outstanding host. The units are always spotlessly clean and well-equipped. Motel is very quiet despite being on Victoria Avenue. Definitely recommended.

This motel is perfectly located, close to supermarkets and fast food outlets with a café almost next door. A short walk into town. Some of the little extras in the room were appreciated, such as paper towels, hand wash etc.

A supporter of local business we found this weekend get away ticked all the boxes for my husband and I in terms of hospitality, location, room, ammenities, parking, and privacy. Walking distance to the CBD, supermarkets, takeaways and a number of the towns main attractions, in a pleasant, flat leafy end of town. Ron was very generous with his time and restaurant advice which topped of a wonderful weekend. Would highly recommend this motor lodge to anyone visiting Whanganui.

Great little Motel ,clean and quiet but close enough to the town, owner very friendly and responsive to any questions and seemed genuinely interested on why I was visiting Whanganui. I would recommend the Siena motel to anyone looking to stay in Whanganui for a few days.
