“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

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 bed was incredibly comfortable. I have already been recommending family and friends stay at Amore. It was a great start to our New Zealand holiday.

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 .

Stayed 1 night in a 2-bedroom unit the day before our flight back to singapore. We wanted a place which is near to airport, and amore clearly is a good choice. It is also located across riccarton mall , where kmart and pak n save is. Unit is very clean, neat , well equipped and modern. Beds were firm (but not too hard) and it was my most well-rested night during the 2 weeks in south island. Definitely would choose this as my accomodation again in the future.

We have stayed here before and again was wel worth the stay. This has become our home away from home. We could not of asked for a better stay yet again.
Perfect management, Perfect room, Perfect size, and we could not make a bad comment on anything. Well worth the visit yet again and looking forward to it in the near future.

We stayed here for 2 nights when we arrived in Christchurch and another night after we returned from our tour around the South Island. The caretaker hosts were managing the motel on both occasions and we found them very friendly and helpful. The motel itself was very clean with reasonable sized rooms and a small kitchenette, flat screen TV and free wifi. It was on a busy road with lots of other motels nearby and most of them had the "No Vacancy" sign out while we were there so advance booking would be essential. The motel is close (without being too close) to a large shopping centre where just about anything you wanted could be purchased. We would certainly stay here again if/when we return to Christchurch.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have a nice outdoor table and chairs for a relaxing pre-dinner drink.

A friend and I stayed here for 2 nights after completing the Queen Charlotte Track. The accommodations were modern, clean, and well equipped. There was a kitchenette with a selection of teas and coffees, electric tea kettle, fridge, and other items. The bathroom appeared new, with a shower, and lots of space. They included a few amenities such as soap, hair dryer, and heated towel rack. The couple who ran Amore were very friendly and helpful, advising us on transportation around the area and recommended sightseeing areas. Very nice! The area where this motel is located, is on a stretch of road with a LOT of hotels/motels. I don't know what those other places are like, but this one was quite pleasant. I would stay here again.

Our stay was for 3 nights 2/26-2/28. Arrived ~10:30 AM from US night flight. Room was not available until ~1PM; however hostesss let us park & we adjusted to NZ time by visiting the Westfield mall which others talk about. It's a terrific place to get your NZ SIM card (try Bond & Bond for 20 NZD), discount price groceries @ PakN'Save, get a bite to eat @ a multitude of eateries in the food court, make a first clothing purchase, catch a cupa @ Starbucks, etc. There are also restaurants on Ricarrton Ave. that within walking distance. it is a very busy street, from early morning until well after rush hour; so if you are driving you need patience to turn into the motel.

We had a choice of two rooms, one standard King & one disabled King. We took the latter for greater spaciousness. Unfortunately the shower floor was not sloped; so it was a challenge to bathe without creating a flood everywhere. Room was ground level & had a small patio w/chair & table --- great for an evening cocktail or morning coffee. Cooktop, microwave, frig (w/milk) & all the necessary cooking utensils. Wardrobe for hang-ups, desk & decent lighting througout. Decent (~500 MB at no charge) of internet provided. Parking stalls a bit cramped for a mid-sized car. The overall layout is a 50s style court motel that has been renovated updated.

Big kludos to our host, hostess & their darling infant were helpful, cheerful & ran a very tidy, clean ship.

Room Tip: Ask for a 1st level room in the back to avoid street noise
