I booked for one night initially then a further 3 nights on our return to Christchurch. Very happy with the facilities overall. A very adequate kitchen area to cook simple meals. The king size bed was very comfortable in both rooms and a big asset was to have a washing machine and dryer in each room. Easy access to supermarket... More

Stayed here for two nights 15th / 16th February. No complaints apart from light shining into room from back door, maybe a blind over the door would be a good idea. Also parking a bit tight, ( especially when you get idiots parking over two spaces with one car! ). Staff very helpful and pleasant, room incredibly clean and tidy,... More

Me and my partner stayed here on the 7th of February for 3 nights. Very happy with our stay. We arrived early and they said to give them half hour to prepare the room. Very happy as they could have said to return later. 15-20 minute walk to the centre. Close to a supermarket and restaurant. Bus stop outside. Owner... More

After a poor start where the owner accidentally insulted my wife (although I was amused by it!) we were really impressed by this very well appointed motel. For the money it's excellent in every respect. Comfy, clean, spacious & the manager was eager to help. Extra towels not a problem. This motel has really good laundry facilities in every room...

My sister and I just spent 2 nights at Azena. We came home exhausted, due to lack of sleep. We were in unit 7, which is the upstairs unit, closest to the (very very busy!) road. The road noise was really bad. And to make it worse, there is no air conditioning in the unit, so we had to leave... More

Had a wonderful stay here: super friendly lady checked us in and was very helpful, the room is well fitted out and super good value with a washer and dryer, yay! Beds were ridiculously comfortable, bus stop to town right outside and free wifi. Really enjoyed it well done guys :)

These motels are very clean with decent size rooms. Great location with a super market, BP and small shopping centre across the road. Hosts are also very helpful. Only downside is parking is very tight. Will stay there again.

The rooms were very comfortable and well fitted out, set back from the street so nice and quiet. Not very close to the city, but then again there isn't much of a city anyway. Bailies Bar round the corner serves great food.

We stayed here several times when the complex was first built and it was very tidy and well run by a couple who'd been in motels for many years. Everything was excellent. We stayed again last weekend after a 3 year absence. Rooms are the same it is just that the place is not being maintained. There is moss and... More

In most respects it was a typical good quality hotel room, perhaps not 'luxury' (as the sign outside says) by current standards. But if everything had worked it would have been fine. The unit even had a washing machine and dryer which would be very useful for multiple night stays. First issue was TV channels. It was very hard to... More
