We stayed here for one night in Christchurch. I chose Amore motor lodge because it's not far from Westfield Riccarton shopping mall, just across the street. We can find the supermarket there to pack some groceries for our 17-day trip.

Do hope you enjoyed your trip in our beautiful country and left with treasured lifetime memories. We are so fortunate to be located opposite the Westfield shopping mall also accommodating the large supermarket that would meet your requirements perfectly. So many people arrive in Christchurch for their trips and leave before they have an opportunity to spend time enjoying all...

Thank you David for taking the time to post a review.

We were staying one night in Christchurch and decided to stay at Amore motor lodge. The owner of the motel was friendly and very helpful with the room and recommended a great place to eat. The room itself was modern with a kitchenette,sky and a great bathroom. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone.

We took the 2BR unit located on the 2nd level. There's no lift so it may be tricky if you have lots of bags or if you have mobility issues, but Chen was very helpful in helping us carry the bags up and settle in. Conveniently located opposite the large mall, and close to several restaurants. The 2BR apartment itself...

We stayed here for several nights at the end of our South Island holiday. Although on the busy Riccarton Road the property was rather quiet inside. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised with an upgrade which we really appreciated....The property was clean and comfortable and spacious. Kitchenette was well appointed.

We got the 2BR apartment and it was clean and comfortable. Good location along the main street just opposite Westfield and near the airport just 15mins away. No lift to the 2nd floor so we had to carry our luggages up a flight of stairs. Other than that, nothing to complain about
