From help with reservations in Christchurch to checking out The Commodore Hotel provided excellent service and assistance during a stressful time with a family member in hospital. Good beds with black out curtains, bathrooms clean and good tea/coffee facilities. Decor walls could do with a little TLC, but the service from the bar to the restaurant and reception was 'top...

This hotel made everything so easy. We called for the shuttle(free) at the airport and it arrived very soon after. Our cases were loaded and off we went for the short journey to the hotel. The driver engaged us in a cricket talk, he was more upto date than we were. Reception staff were friendly and efficient, then up to... More

Nice hotel with comfortable beds and a decent restaurant. Proof against small earthquakes, as I found one night. A bit far out of town but really the only place to stay if you need/want to stick by the airport.

Like other reviewers this was our first stop after arriving in NZ. It couldn't have been a better to place to relax after many hours flying. We stayed for 2 nights. It's highly recommended by us. It was so quiet despite being near the airport.

We had a great night at the hotel and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Will definitely return next time for a further stay. Facilities were conveniently situated and with ease of use for those who no longer get around too well. Thanks for great stay.

Spent the first night in New Zealand after a long flight at this hotel, and I can not imagine a better place to recover from the effects of travelling across time zones and spending far to many hours in an aircraft. The hotel is very close to the airport, and there is a complementary shuttle service that will pick you... More

We stayed for one night after returning our camper van and wished we had time to stay longer. You can believe all of the good reports on this hotel. The staff were lovely and friendly and the service was brilliant. I would highly recommend this hotel.
