After struggling to find a place to stay in Christchurch Awen lodge saved the day. Roger and Karen were so accommodating and welcoming. The room was lovely and very cosy. Roger and Karen also gave us plenty of information about the South Island and New Zealand in general. Myself and my partner had a great time talking with them, so much so we felt sad to leave the next day. We received an amazing breakfast in the morning after a peaceful, relaxing rest in our room. The shower was fantastic too. Overall it was one of the best places we have stayed in during our travels and I definitely recommend it to anyone who is near Christchurch and needs a place to stay!
