The room was spacious and being upstairs had a nice balcony. Unfortunately, the outdoor seats were very rusty and unreliable. Free WiFi and the added bonus of a washing machine and dryer which was just what we needed as we were travelling around NZ for three weeks. Took the bus into the city; bus stops close by. Strangely, the room...

Does what it says on the tin! Nice and clean with well appointed rooms, including washing machine and dryer. Balconies if you have an upstairs room, which are in the sun all day long. Large rooms great for if you're traveling with bags/cases. It is on a busy road so a bit of road noise, which may be lessened if...

A very nice motel with spacious rooms and great shower pressure to die for. Just a few things would make the difference. We arrived at night in the rain and the pathway to the room has a rather large bump, step in it. Nothing to help you see it as there isn't much lighting. I tripped over carrying my bag...

Stayed here September 2013. Nice place to stay, the rooms are spacious and clean, good size kitchenette and bathroom. The people were really good to deal with as we were arriving late at night they left the door open for us and we didn't see them again until checkout time a few days later. Handy location 5 mins drive from...

We stayed in unit 10 (upstairs) for one night. The room is just perfect; spacious, clean, a comfy bed, good shower, huge TV (the largest I've ever seen in any motel) with many channels, a washing machine and a dryer in the bathroom (plus free detergent) a small balcony. The only problem is the traffic noise which was loud and...

It cost $40 to get to this motel by taxi, an easy drive from the airport. The man on reception was friendly and showed us to our room. The room was spacious and had a washing machine (with wash powder) and a drier in the bathroom, both of which worked efficiently. There was also a drying screen in the garden...

This motel was in a great location. Our room had everything in it we needed, even a washing machine and dryer ! Across the road there was a Petrol station and next door to that a supermarket so we could wander over for "essentials"., extra milk, bread etc. We could take a 1 minute walk to an Indian restaurant ,...

My son and husband stayed at Azena at Labour Weekend and were very impressed with this motel. Very clean, great shower, very good beds, very quiet and good staff. My son was particularly impressed with the size of the TV and the amount of Sky channels (extremely important :). Really reasonably priced. Oh and a washing machine and drier in...
