After 28 days touring the south island we returned our RV and transferred to the Commodore for our last night in New Zealand. We think it is the nicest hotel we’ve ever stayed in. We arrived an hour early for check-in and were greeted by the staff with smiles and told that our room was ready. Next we were walked... More

We stayed one night here in one of the business rooms - very comfortable king bed, nice bathroom and toiletries, good tea and coffee and biscuits supplied, iron and ironing board in the wardrobe. When we arrived at the airport, the lady at the information desk directed us to a courtesy phone so you contact the hotel and they will... More

Very convenient for airport - we were at the end of our trip and this was our last night in New Zealand after a tiring day travelling back from the west coast. Hotel airports are often like people factories, but this one was much better than that. Warm welcome, nice room, very efficient, nice facilities (that we didn't have time... More

Loved this hotel! After a lonnnnng journey (travelling from the uk) and arriving at 1am NZ time pretty much any bed would have been welcome, but I was blessed beyond belief staying here. The free shuttle bus was quick to arrive, easy to locate and with such a friendly and helpful driver (I'm sorry I've forgotten his name but he... More

Welcoming staff on front desk. Lovely Business Class suite. Plenty of room! Comfortable bed and great amenities. Bi-annual trip to Christchurch this was our 2nd stay and couldn't fault it. Attentive bar staff and also engaging shuttle driver who delivered our group to Christ's College for dinner. Great breakfast. Easy check out and again, top staff!

The staff were attentive (and even walked us to our room), we were treated to a free beverage coupon to use at our convenience, and were happy to have wifi and a nice area to take a... More

Big bathroom, bar area and balcony view of a small garden. The location is safe and within walking distance of restaurants, shops and churches. The service at the... More

Being so handy to the Airport, the Commodore is a great place for a conference venue. We attended just for the day and found the staff attentive, efficient and discreet. Food was excellent and plenty of it. It will be worth noting for a place to stay in the future.
