We stayed here just overnight on transit and chose the location as it's only 2-3 minutes walk down the road to the Westfield Mall for shopping. The owner went out of his way to attend to our every need. I don't think I've had the owner of a hotel or motel shake my hand upon checking in - very friendly!... More

I recently stayed at the Amore with my parents for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. The location was good and the rooms were excellent - very comfortable and clean.

My wife, son, daughter, son in law and grandson stayed in the upstairs 2 Bedroom units for a week as the EQC repairs to both our homes was delayed. It was fair to say we were stressed. Booking in was a breeze and upon arrival found the whole facility immaculate inside and out. All the rooms were large and despite... More

We recently stayed here for a family wedding in Christchurch. The rooms were as new, very clean and well-furnished with everything you could need. Electric blankets, heaters in the bathroom and decent cable TV and WiFi were great touches.

We needed two rooms and three beds for ourselves and our teenaged daughters, and the Amore provided nicely. The rooms were very clean and well furnished, the heat pump worked very well, the bathroom was fine and the shower very nice. Also the Riccarton location was great: the motel backs up to a gorgeous park, and a great neighborhood of... More
