Nice room and facilities. We were upgraded from a one bedroom unit to a two bedroom on at no additional cost. The lodge is just a few minutes walk from restaurants and the mall. The staff were very friendly and helpful!

Excellent room facilities. The double glazed windows helps to reduce Riccarton Rd traffic noise. I normally notice traffic noise so this was great. It also keeps the rooms warmer. Room has air conditioner. Although the unit was quiet when in use every time I turned it off it would make a fair bit of noise. Rooms very well serviced. The... More

very clean room and comfortable beds. Arrived late at night but that was no problem for the owners. Very quick checkout too. Coffee and tea and mini fridge available in the rooms. Didn't stay long enough to really get use of the amenities but were available

We stayed at the executive studio for a night. Staff was friendly. It was winter and heater was already switched on when we checked in. Room was clean and modern. Kitchen was well-equipped. Motel is a short walk to Westfield Riccarton, which was handy for stocking up supplies. Very happy with stay. Thumbs up!

We stayed at Amore as a stopover between Mt Cook and Nelson. Very glad we chose Amore Motor Lodge! Owner greeted us warmly, and showed us to our room. The room was spacious, kitchenette was updated, and bathroom nice and clean. The motel is on a busy road, although it is located about a 5 minute walk from a happening... More

When we arrived in the evening, we were warmly greeted and told our room had the heater on and the key was on the kitchen bench. When we got to our room it was warm and inviting. The warmth was really appreciated after a late flight in the cold night. Thank you guys.

Very friendly welcome and service, immaculately clean and comfortable room. Well equipped with kitchen facilities. Restaurants nearby, and close to the lovely Riccarton House and its delightful gardens and bush reserve. Three minute drive, or 40 minute walk to CBD through Hagley Park and Botanical Gardens.

Upon arrival we were welcomed warmly and the room was certainly spacious and well equipped although gloomy, dark and dated. We had purchased supper supplies so didn't need a restaurant and the nearby Mall which may be seen as a bonus to some, was irrelevant to us. There are many motels on this busy road, not attractive or particularly convenient... More

Disappointed to hear that you found our new motel gloomy, dark, dated and needing modernising! I guess everyone has their own definition of class and style ... We are proud that Amore boasts spotlessly clean rooms and are extremely comfortable, spacious and functional with stylish decor but acknowledge that everyone's personal taste differs. As the city rebuild is in progress... More

Stayed over the Easter break and was pleased with room quality and service. Simple decor and scrupulously clean. Friendly welcome on arrival. Handy to Riccarton Mall. Even though on main road, the traffic noise was barely noticeable inside the room.
