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

Very clean and tidy unit with plenty of room and very reasonably priced. There was a kitchen and washing machine and drier in the unit. There is a very nice Indian restaurant across the road as well as a supermarket around the corner.Would certainly stay again.

I stay here regularly for business. Clean and tidy. Comfortable rooms with good facilities. Good location. If you like a pint of Guinness I Highly recommend popping over the road to Bailey Irish bar about 1 minute walk. Highly recommend this motel.

We arrived late and left early so i cant comment on location and surroundings but i can say that the room was clean, roomy and comfortable and we really appreciated being able to put a load of washing through after 2 weeks on the road! They even supplied washing powder which was a nice touch. Well priced accomodation and good... More

Stayed on our first night in NZ and was surprised with the excellent quality of the motel. Check in fast and easy and the room was spotlessly clean. Our room contained 3 single beds all with electric blankets, huge TV, well set up kitchen and the bathroom was lovely and clean with a washing machine and dryer. We stayed in... More
