Stay in the Commodore prior to our flight from the airport, great service, very good restaurant breakfast meal, excellent location. Free shuttle bus (on demand) to the airport. Great place to stay and we will definitely stay there again. Thanks team.

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night, as we were flying home the next day. It's close to the airport and they offer a shuttle service, but we had a rental car and didn't need it. They have a lot of parking space outside, which was necessary, because we had to drive all the way to the back of... More

After a 5 week holiday in north and South Island , experiencing all types of accommodation, my husband & I were ready to get back home. We unexpectedly encountered an enormous problem with our flights, and Emirates Ailines informed us of the airport accommodatin desk. With efficiency we were being collected from the airport, exhausted, quickly processed through reception and... More

Great staff for starters. Cannot ask for a better team when I stay there. Always happy to help and assist in any manner. We stay there for business quite often and the rooms are fantastic. Not sure what the standard rooms are like but the business rooms are great. Thanks for always making us feel welcome

We stayed at the Commodore for one night at the end of our trip to the South Island, as we wanted to be close to the airport, and we though it was great. The room was spacious, quiet and clean. We decided to eat at the hotel restaurant and although busy, as it was a Friday night, we had what... More

Spacious Room, Big Bathroom, Comfy Bed, Great Food, Helpful Staff, you cannot asked for more from this hotel. Oh, Near the airport also. Stay just for a night. But far from town centre. One thing, the next morning when we are going to check out, there was no staff to taking our bag to the car, so we get the... More

I was impressed by the fact that everyone I spoke to at the hotel had the same very high levels of courtesy and politeness. It was also the best night's sleep I had had in a hotel for a long time. Top notch.

Stayed here the second time (formerly Copthorne Hotel Commodore) on Dec 23 and 24 for leisure. First time was in late January 2013 for business. Conveniently located near the airport and major motorways, but a little far from downtown Christchurch, which is about 15 min's drive but there's bus service. The room spacious, comfortable and makes you feel at home.... More

My wife and I are currently staying and are overwhelmed by the service, quality and experience here at the commodore hotel. Let's start with service. Obviously very highly trained with sound systems. Having stayed at many hotels, the staff and service here cannot be faulted. Next is the restaurant meal we just completed. As good as anything we have experienced... More
