We really enjoyed our stay at the Amore Motor Lodge. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and went the extra mile. Chen even helped us when we had a flat car battery! Our room was modern, well equipped and clean. The beds were firm and super comfortable. The kitchen area is fairly small, but was adequate. We found it... More

We arrived at night and was very glad that the host waited for us till we checked in. The two-bedroom apartment looks so comfortable. The living room is very spacious for four of us! The kitchenette was well equipped with a microwave oven, plates, cups, fridge. We stayed here for two nights. We had free wifi throughout our stay with... More

This motel never disappoints. The service is fantastic and the hosts are always available if you need help. I phoned reception at 11pm about noise in a neighbouring room which was dealt with very efficiently. Always my first choice when travelling for work in Chch. Rooms are very comfortable and the rooms at the back have lovely park views.

Hi Teryl, great to hear that we have constantly met your expectation with service and cosiness. We are so disappointed to hear you had a disturbed sleep due to others' inconsideration and we were happy that you slept well after it's been dealt with. Thanks for staying with us, would love to see you again some time. More

Host waited up for us to arrive at 10pm and is very helpful, cheerful and attentive. Suite is a little small if you are travelling with 2 large cases, but is very clean, well maintained and nicely appointed with a small courtyard (downstairs). Bathroom is large with proper hot water, heated towel rails and great water pressure! I would happily... More

Good location and while on busy road noise levels low. Very clean room and housekeeping fantastic. I could rave on about the clean room for ages! Didn't have to ask for anything. Hosts very helpful and even wanted to carry bags. Given free wifi which is great and did not ask for the chits.

Nice modern clean room with microwave and some cooking facilities. Small courtyard out the back. Only minutes walk away from a large shopping centre and several restaurants. Internet very easy to connect to. Parking outside our room. Heater/air conditioner very quiet and worked very well.

2 room apartment is excellent, large living room. Too bad there is only 1 toilet for the 5 of us. The apartment looks clean and new and parking is just outside. For long period travelers, ask for first storey apartment as there is no lift. When we were there, they are upgrading their wifi. We can't log in till we... More

Rooms are exceptionally appointed, clean and comfortable. The host is excellent. I awoke to a frost free windscreen, and clear driver, passenger windows and mirrors.
