The rooms are very modern looking and spotlessly clean. The motel is located a short walk from a large mall and other shops and restaurants. It is also only half an hours walk from Hagley Oval ( the cricket ground). Would definitely stay again

Had a 2 bedroom apartment and was what we needed. Little space in bedrooms for cases but that is being really picky!!!! Great location close to shops and restaurants and it was a shame they didn't have vacancies for the whole time we required in ChCh. Would definitely recommend and consider using again. Lovely stay. Our experience was that it... More

Very practical and nicely fitted out rooms, and operated on a really friendly basis. Good selection of eating places within easy walking distance. Ideal first night stop over in Christchurch. Within short taxi distance of the city centre.

Booked Amore Motor Lodge after reading all the great reviews on TA and we were certainly not disappointed. Spotless clean and well presented throughout. Great being able to walk to shops & cafes and restaurants. Very friendly owner at reception gave loads of useful information. Would most certainly stay again.

This motel is very tidy with modern interior design, love it! The desk attendant is very friendly and helpful. Many thanks for that! Not to mention the convenient location, only take 5 minutes cross the road to the biggest shopping mall.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us here at the Amore and taking the time to leave us your review. Having the mall, supermarket and restaurants so close is very convenient for those without transport as everything is in walking distance. It was our pleasure to have you here. We hope to see you again soon. More

Location is great. Walking distance to "downtown" Christchurch. Of course going to the remains of Christchurch, which has a long way to go in earthquake recovery, is not the great destination it used to be. The motel is also across the street from a nice shopping center with a Pak n Save, a great location for purchasing lots of things... More

If buildings have personality, I would say Amore is a serious, no-nonsense introvert. With all the good reviews, I was expecting to be blown away by some wow factors. Nothing of that sort. The motel was painted in different shades of dull grey. Nothing bright. Nothing fanciful. Nothing shouting out for attention. Walls were bare with no pictures. No decor.... More

I booked two nights at this motel, primarily because we were needing a place that was fairly close to the train station. (It was less than a 10 minute cab ride) I found this to be clean, well appointed, and the desk attendant was very pleasant and helpful (showed us how everything worked in our room, called a cab for...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We agree we are so very fortunate to be located so close to everything one needs when away from home! Lovely restaurants, parks, and a great shopping mall. You don't even need a car to get around. We hope to accommodate you again in the near future. More

Excellent service provided by the friendly manager who helped us with our luggage and explained all the facilities very well. The use of washing facility (free) was great and he even provided laundry powder as it had been left by other guests. Room was comfortable and exceptionally clean with view out the rear overlooking bush park. Very quiet even though... More

We chose to stay at Armore Motor Lodge after reading previous reviews on Tripadvisor. It is a very good choice for a motel in Christchurch - well located near Riccarton Mall and not too far from Hagley Park either. The room was spotless and felt new. The front desk service was excellent - friendly and efficient. We had a room... More
