We chose the location for the proximity to the Addington train station where you catch the Tranzalpine real early in the morning. It turns out that this is a nice little motel in one of the best functioning remaining suburbs of Christchurch. Riccarton has all you need as a traveler with mall, restaurants, and transport connections. As to the Amore...

As a family of 4 we stayed in a corner ground floor unit. The bedrooms were small but very clean and well equipped. Loved the outdoor patio area. Relaxing and quiet. Great location. The staff were brilliant. Would stay here again.

The location was chosen for its proximity to good eateries and the nearby shopping centre and PaknSave. The two rooms we took were clean and comfortable. Mr.Chen, the owner was helpful and patient.

We stayed 3 nights and loved Amore Lodge. Room was beautifully clean and lovely view into the park behind. We had an upstairs room at the back, away from any street noise and had a very pleasant stay. The hosts were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms serviced daily .

Thank you for leaving us your kind review! We are extremely lucky to be in a very central location, close to the mall, restaurants, supermarket and parks yet enjoying the birds singing and quietness of the Riccarton Bush. Looking forward to seeing you again very soon!

I stayed here for 5 nights. Checkin was friendly and the room was very clean and comfortable. During my visit i found that the WIFI was very intermittent so i just the cable instead. Although the motel is on a busy road, noise never worried me. In a very convenient location. Will stay here again.
