Very comfortable bed in a room with a heat pump which cooled us down after a long drive. The on site laundry (free) was a bonus, and the owner even offered us the use of their commercial dryer if necessary. A bowl of snacks was most welcome. The motel is within waling distance of three supermarkets and several fast food...

This motel is the most comfortable, best equipped, cleanest, well priced and most up-market motor lodge we have stayed in during the entire decade plus that we have been travelling. The host is excellent and provides a welcoming bowl of goodies for your room. It really is a delightful oasis in a wonderful little town.

This motel really lives up to it's advertising and the photo's on the website. Our 1 bedroom unit was tastefully decorated, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. The host was very friendly and the motel well located with direct access into town and two supermarkets nearby for supplies.

My husband and I just needed a room for the night and within walking distance to St John's Club so we were able to attend a function there. The room exceeded our expectations in many ways and we especially loved the bed which we intend to purchase once we've found it in store and the provision of a separate rubbish...

Siena Lodge is a great place to stay. Clean, comfortable and very well-appointed. It's in a convenient location and staffed/owned by really lovely, helpful people. The bathroom was particularly lovely; great water pressure on the shower, and a lovely selection of toiletries, etc.

Motel was easy to find and was clean and tidy with good space . Kitchen area spotless and supplies ample for our needs. The bowl of goodies were a nice touch. Close to cafe's, and a short trip to town with its eclectic shops and restraunts. Staff helpful and friendly . Would stay again.

This motel was highly recommended to me to stay at From a business collegue for its attention to detail and helpfulness from the owner. It was great that I didn't have masses of steps to take all my personal and work gear to room. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.
