This is a great hotel! The rooms are clean, bright and modern. I stayed in a "business level" room, the furnishings are actually comfortable, everything worked and the rooms are big. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I didn't use the pool and spa but they look very inviting, The inner courtyard and fireplace is a great place to... More

We stayed in a large room at the back of the hotel, very quite and very spacious. There were two double beds, a small balcony and a great bathroom/dressing area. There is a microwave and fridge, tea & coffee facilities. Very close to the airport and the city.

Nice staff, clean room, we turned up late at night and left in the morning. The breakfast was quite expensive but the coffee and resturant staff were nice. It is quite close to the Christchurch airport and MUCH better than the Sudiama which is closer.

Lovely comfortable rooms and friendly attentive staff. Very convenient to the airport. Good room service menu. Feels more like European 5 star service than the price suggests. Will happily stay there again.

Our Australasian organisation arranged a conference at the Commodore so was logical to book the accommodation there also. What a great surprise to find such an outstanding venue out of the CBD! Not only were the conference facilities top class but the quality of accommodation, dining and service was outstanding. Beautifully appointed, large ground floor room with a huge window... More

We have had the pleasure of staying in the Commodore Hotel's Buisness Rooms on several occasions over the past few years, and could not recommend this hotel more highly. Their proximity to the Christchurch Airport and prompt shuttle service are real bonuses when arriving to the city whilst on a busy schedule. Upon your arrival, their professional friendly staff, especially... More

We went to this hotel for literally six hours, because we had just flown in from Perth, Western Australia, and we needed a place to sleep before we drove down to Timaru. This hotel had a nice atmosphere, and was very accommodating to our needs.

This hotel has a lovely feel to it, from the friendly staff and a great restaurant/bar. Additionally the gym is reasonable, there is also an indoor pool/spa and a sauna and they have bikes to use. Great for a night where you need to be close to the airport. Additionally the business rooms have been renovated to a high standard,... More
