This was our first stay at this motel. While there are plenty of motels to choose from on this section of Riccarton Rd the reviews on Trip Advisor were good so we decided to book Amore. We were running late so called ahead in case we arrived after the office was closed. The owner not only said he would be... More

As you drive down Riccarton Road in Christchurch there are many motor lodges so you do really need to know which one to choose -- the answer is Amore! We had booked this based on the reviews on Trip Advisor -- and we weren't disappointed. Just to explain, this is a motor lodge, it's not a boutique hotel, so this... More

We arrived into Christchurch at about 1 AM and were thrilled with the service that Amore had provided. Despite arriving after hours, a welcome note was left on the door and the heating and lighting had been left on in our room for our comfort. The room was clean and modern. Being extremely tired and jetlagged, we really appreciated being... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Nice, clean quiet and warm facility. Hosts were very pleasant and helpful. We had extra baggage which they kindly stored for us. Close to a lot of amenities. Even though it is on a busy road, we heard no excessive traffic nose in our unit.

This has to be one of the nicest places we have stayed. The room was a nice size and everything was sparkling clean. There was a large wardrobe which would be handy to use if staying for more than a night. Even though it is on Riccarton Road, we never heard any traffic noise compared to other places on the... More
