  • Older travelers

  • Couple

    We usually stay in the city when we come over this was an excellent choice!! Very quite considering they are on main road didnt hear traffic, staff are soo helpfully, very clean and self contained will be back great value for money!!!

  • Older travelers

    Christ church is a very nice community and the people wer e very friendly.

  • Couple

    We stayed here on the last night of our honeymoon. We found the room beautiful, clean and very comfortable. The staff were fantastic and went out of their way to help. Wifi worked really well - unlike many other places we had stayed in during our road trip on the South Island. Highly recommend the Amore Motor Lodge

  • Single

    The staff were very helpful, friendly and courteous at all times. The room was immaculate-very comfortable and had everything I needed for an enjoyable stay and a good nights sleep.

  • Single

    Comfortable, quiet, good facilities, good friendly staff.

  • Older travelers

    The room was very spacious and clean.

    Unfortunately it was a little noisy - but we are from the country!

  • Group of friends

    on arrival we had a group of 8 staying and the managers bent over backwards to accommodate us and looked after us very well and were very professional. we could not fault the rooms and the large apartment was excellent for our group gatherings. excellent showers.

  • Older travelers

    Reasonably quiet location despite being on the main Riccarton Road, owners were extremely helpful since we had just arrived on a long long journey from the uk. The owners were also very supportive following a series of "shakes" during our stay.

    .... not a question of didn't like, not complaints at all, but a few amendments or additions would help .... more than one rubbish bin would be good, a few more coathangers and a hook on the bathroom door would be great - not mind blowing, just suggestions really. Very satisfied and a lovely couple trying to run a business under really difficult circumstances in Christchurch. Good Luck.

  • Family with children

    Clean, modern, quiet units. Great location and people at reception lovely.

  • Family with children

    We loved everything about the Amore Motor Lodge! It was close to the Westfield Shopping Centre which made it easy as new arrivals to find everything we had forgotten, and being on Riccarton Road made it easy to get around. The rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. The spa in the bathroom was a particular hit! I think the thing that made the stay the best however, were Pauline and Steve. They were so friendly and incredibly helpful (and patient). Nothing was too much trouble for them and every suggestion they gave us was perfect. Thank you for an enjoyable stay. We'll be back...

    I needed wifi! Perhaps it was there, but I am a little computer incompetent.

  • Older travelers

    Good location. Close to shopping and plenty of options for food.

    After a shower the entire bathroom is wet even with the shower curtain. It can be a safety concern. The room is very small for a couple with two pieces of luggage.
