We had an unexpected stay last night after having missed a connection to our intended destination due to a delayed outbound connection from Rotoroa (I knew I shouldn't have listened to the travel agent's assurances that a 35 minute connection in Auckland is "fine). The hotel staff were just lovely, very helpful in all ways. Free shuttle dropping us at... More

I actually did not stay at the hotel but stopped in looking for a business center to resolve a business emergency. Without access to Internet or a phone in a foreign country, I was in a bit of a bind. The front office staff, Michael in particular, we're brilliant in assisting me. Not only was I lent an iPad, but... More

Our second stay here en route to the UK from NZ. Excellent service as before, good food and a very welcoming atmosphere. My only reflection having now (as I write) stayed at Changi Airport Hotel in Singapore and various other hotels; is that it is rather expensive. But given no other comparable choice we will be going back

We chose this hotel due to its location close to the airport - we were picked up from the airport by Sam, who was very friendly and helpful, particularly as we were travelling with a lot of luggage and our baby. We made use of the pool and room service during our stay - enjoyed both and also thought the... More

Dear Canadian Reviewer, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is pleasing to hear you thought our Restaurant Excellent.

The Commodore staff is full of professional and energetic people. They are eager to answer any questions and make your stay away from home as comfortable as possible. I've stayed here several times and always come back when I'm in Christchurch.

Stayed for one night. I was checked in quickly, given a drinks voucher, free wifi and a bus pass for the trip into town. Staff were helpful and relaxed. The room was very good. 5 stars - simple as that. The hop to the airport in the courtesy bus took five minutes
