Reviewed 1 July 2013

We bookedthe Amore through Booking.com and advised that we would be arriving late and were informed that a note giving details on how to access our room would be left on the office door. duly arrived after midnight. No note on office door. No details anywhere. Unable to contact anyone. We ended up hailing a taxi and were taken to another hotel. I rang the Amore the following morning and advised what had happened. The owner was very, very apologetic. She had been away for a couple of days and a few admin' errors had happened in her absence. She offered us free accommodation, and compensation for our second taxi fare. We did not take her up on the accommodation offer, as we were comfortable where we were, and it was too disruptive to move. Credit to the owner for making these offers. Moral of the story dear readers- doublecheck your reservations especially if arriving late(doesn't just apply to the Amore Motor Lodge- everywhere)

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 - the McDonalds (OK, I was desperate...) just over the road was probably the worst I have ever had - go further afield if you want to get something edible!

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 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.
