Lindsay is the most charming and witty of hosts and with a wealth of knowledge and history of the area. The units are spacious, neat, clean and tidy. The Motel is recently newly built and the furnishings, decor, shower area and kitchenettes all reflect this, it's like moving into a brand new apartment. The free in room cable broadband internet connection makes life so much easier for ongoing planning and communication. There is a washing machine and dryer in the unit which also makes life easy and contributes to the "home from home" feel. There is a bus stop almost right outside the forecourt with regular busses to and from town if you don't want to drive or walk. We were there just a week before the disastrous earthquake and can't stop feeling and hurting for all the wonderful people we met there. It is a beautiful city and area and as soon as they get back on their feet go there. The Azena Motel is excellent value for money, do not waste time looking any further.

We stayed here for two nights. We actually asked to look at the rooms before check-in and the manager very cheerfully took us to see the rooms. The rooms looked really new and clean. We are glad we decided to stay. My two teenage kids got one room with two single beds and the room was connected to our room, which had a king bed. The two rooms were basically identical. The kitchen though small, was well equipped and more than sufficient for us. The washing machine and dryer were very helpful as we were running out of clean clothes. Our beds were comfortable and because it was also quiet we slept really well. When we needed to make a call to book a taxi to the airport, the friendly manager helped to make the call and settled it quickly for us.

We started our trip here and what a great welcome to New Zealand. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice and clean and new and roomy for 2. One of the very few who offered free internet connection at our time of travel and free laundry and drying facilities. Nice big beds and lovely finish. The Azena is situated a little far from the city centre so prepare to drive, hike quite a distance or catch local transport. Very pleasant and we can recommend this place of accommodation.

Azena is a nice little complex with very friendly operators. Great place to stay before departing back home.The rooms even have a washing machine and drier which tucked tidily in the bathroom. Very clean rooms. We walked to town and that didn't take long at all. The bus service is excellent if you want public transport.

My stay was due to visiting my daughter nearby who had inadequate room.
This motel is near new, with restful immaculate presentation. Although handy to CBD Christchurch (few minute drive)or the bus stops outside every few minutes, the motel was quiet and restful. Good heating made it nice and cosy on cold Christchurch days too. Recommend room 15!. Also includes w/machine and dryer facilities. Plenty of parking.Very pleasant owners. Would thoroughly recommend.

Stayed May 2008
