Some lovely words from our guests:

“Great location, spotlessly clean and friendly hosts – if you want a good place to stay in Christchurch – this is it. The motel is about 20 minutes’ walk from the heart of the City and about 15 minutes from a good supermarket so although a car is useful it is not essential (unless it is pouring with rain!). The unit was spotless and offered everything you could want. A laundry is on site which is very useful if traveling and the hosts were very helpful with any information required. Visiting New Zealand is like going back in time when everyone had more time and patience. The pace of life is slower but everyone is helpful and friendly.”

“We found the online booking service quite simple when we booked several months in advance, and on arrival found the reception to be very friendly and efficient from the owners/managers. Our first-floor room was lovely, with a large living area, a very well equipped kitchen with two hotplates and microwaves, as well as all the cutlery and crockery you would need for a few people.”

One of my favorite stops on our last night of the trip. Great location, close to New Year’s Eve festivities yet still quiet enough for a great night’s sleep. The bed linens were sumptuous, the best we encountered. The place was spotless and well-appointed, and the staff was super friendly.”

“Great place to stay! Comfortable beds and friendly awesome customer service. The rooms were clean and the Lodge is conveniently located – an easy 10-minute walk to the city center. We would stay there again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it.”

This is what Expedia Insiders’ Select 2014 had to say about Amross Court Motor Lodge: 

Amross Court Motor Lodge, Bealey Avenue, Christchurch – A picturesque motel in Christchurch’s beleaguered city was praised for its quaint exterior and reviewers were keen to commend its warmth amidst the destruction that surrounds it.
