After running into car troubles we had to cancel one of our two nights we were here. We wish we hadn't had to have done that. Upon arrival the place was beautiful, plenty parking, great location! (Mall is just down the road). The hosts very generously upgraded our room, and gave us a good run down of the area surrounding.... More

Excellent motel for a few days visiting relatives in Christchurch. Good location, shopping mall with huge supermarket in walking distance. Riccarton Bush Park round the corner - do the old house tour 2pm each day if you are interested in the history of NZ, also has the last remaining patch of native bush. City Centre and Hagley Park a short... More

The Amore Motor Lodge in Christchurch has the friendliest owner. He was especially accommodating when it came to my use of the washer and dryer by retuning my money when I put it in the wrong slot and keeping the laundry area open past hours so my drying would finish. He was most helpful with restaurant, grocery store, and drug... More

Recently my wife and I travelled to Christchurch and stayed at Amore Motor Lodge which is highly recommended to us by one of our friends. The room we stayed was spacious and spotlessly clean. My wife loved the small kitchen and we made a good meal with ease. Comfortable bed, free wifi, big flat-screen TV with Skys ... everything we... More

Pros - great value, for five nights stay for two people this wasn't expensive - nice location near a big shopping centre - friendly staff Cons - uncomfortable bed. The bed is two single beds attached together by zip. It's advertised as a king size bed, but in reality more likely double or queen. - flat, uncomfortable pillows. Had to... More

This Review is almost identical to the one below “Friendly staff, reasonable price, but small rooms and uncomfortable beds.” presumably wrote by the same person using different accounts. The motive is unknown, however I didn't know Tripadvisor actually allow same person to post same reviews to a property twice for one stay. I might have to report to TA to... More

Stayed at Amore for 6 nights while in Christchurch. The location of this motel is excellent, being close to the CBD and having a major shopping mall just across the road. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean, but quite small. The website boasts quality king-size beds, but we had two single beds pushed together and very... More

AmoreMotorLodge, Owner at Amore Motor Lodge, responded to this review

Goodness John - you certainly struggled to find many positives to comment on in our highly customer rated motel! We feel your comment about small dark rooms is misleading. All the rooms that have a glass sliding door also have a rear opening window or door. Most glass sliders either open out onto private gardens or balconies. 3 rooms have... More

Stayed for two nights and then again for a night a few days later in a family sized room. Both rooms we stayed in were very clean, quite spacious and have a contemporary feel. Staff also friendly and helpful. Would come back again and recommend to others.

Thanks Gristy58 for taking the time to post a review. We love what we do and your confirmation that we are doing it well is gratifying. Our apartments are lovely and spacious and tastefully decorated which we feel is so important for families and large groups when away from their home comforts. More

We stayed here for two nights over a busy Christmas week. We were surprised to enjoy a restful stay despite the motel being located on a rather busy highway. The room (upper level) was clean fresh and kept that way during our stay. Amore Motor lodge is centrally located to a large mall in Christchurch. In fact you can walk... More

Very clean and spacious rooms, friendly manager, close to a shopping mall with restaurants and a supermarket. About 30min walk to the city center. We travelled with a one year old and felt home immediately. Great place to stay in Christchurch.

We stayed for 3 nights at Amore Motor Lodge. The room was small but clean. We had 3 beds in a room, which was our request. There is small kitchenette in the room to cook or heat simple food and make coffee or tea. I like the full glass door and windows in the unit that make the room less... More
