Fantastic friendly staff. Well appointed clean and tidy accommodation in a handy location. This Motor Lodge is now our number one choice when visiting Christchurch. It was a very frosty weekend and the owner was up early helping de-ice cars as guests were getting ready to depart throughout the morning.

I stayed at the Amore hotel on July 2nd and 3rd, 2013. The staff (Luis and his wife) were very kind and welcoming. Room was clean and had everything you would need on a business trip. They made arrangements for a taxi service to pick me up early to return to the airport. Great value.

Stayed here overnight on a business trip. The owner was friendly and welcoming and had put the heating on before I arrived, which was very welcome on a cold miserable night. The room was spacious enough, very clean, bedding was comfortable and the small kitchenette adequate for a short stay. Nothing much in the locality late in the evening -... More

Amore lodge was an excellent place to stay. It was clean, comfortable and a good location near the university. The staff and little baby Maria could not have been more helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this motel. Thank you!

My husband and I stayed here 1 night. I wish it were longer. Steve and his wife are amazing hosts. They recommended a great place for dinner within walking distance and helped us with a scenic route out to our next destination which was mt cook. The room was clean, shower had great water pressure and heated towel racks. The... More

We spent 2 nights here prior to flying back to the UK. The accommodation is well located, comfortable and of a good standard. The hosts were very helpful and accommodating during our stay in a family unit. The separate studio appt for my elderly father was excellent in terms of accessibility. Highly recommended .
