We enjoyed our stay at Siena we were warmly welcomed the room was clean tidy and had everything we needed. Siena was close to supermarkets fast food outlets and shopping centre. Thank you when we come Whanganui again you will be the first place we call.

Stayed overnight when travelling back north and found the place spotless and everything you could possibly need was available. Apparently 4 star qual mark is the highest you can get in Wanganui but it scores a perfect five in my book.

Stayed for one night in January. This motel looks very unassuming from the road but we cannot speak highly enough about the high standard of the rooms and owners. The room was equipped to a great standard, it was very clean and all looked new and made you feel extremely comfortable to be in there. Large sumptuous bed with pristine...

I stayed there with my family on a recent trip to Wanganui. We got very good service at this place. Everything was very clean and neat and we enjoyed our stay very much. It was lovely to see the owner being actively involved in the running of the place.

We stayed in a Superior Studio room. The room was of average size and had a kitchenette. The kitchenette was the best equipped we've encountered on our trip. The management even supplied paper towel. At check-in, the manager gives guests a bowl of goodies. The manager is friendly focused on meeting any need the guests have. The internet is good....

Have stayed here before and will stay here again. Great room. Great location. Great hosts. Nearby to town and restaurants. A smaller complex so no noise and even though it is on the main road it is very quiet.
