We overnighted at an airport hotel due to our late arrival and prior to collecting our rental car the following morning. We chose the Commodre based on reviews we read and were not disappointed. The service and attention from the enquiry email to arrival transfer, check in, concierge assistance to check out was smooth, friendly and professional. The only issue... More

I stayed here while in Christchurch for a conference and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms were beautiful and large enough to comfortably provide accommodation for myself and a friend. We even had a sliding door to the lovely garden out back with a nice stream.

Well appointed rooms but if you want to dine out there is a taxi ride or drive. Our suggestion would be don't have the nachos if you expect flavour because it's not going to happen...great savoury mince on toast but at $29 lacked flavour even after being sent back if you decide to dine in. Great fireplaces inside and out... More

Extremely enjoyable experience to stay at the Commodore. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The location, just a few minutes drive from Christchurch International Airport, makes this hotel ideal for early morning departures or late night arrivals at the airport. They provide an excellent shuttle bus pick-up and drop-off service on demand. We asked for a room in the... More

Was very, very good. Smooth check in and check out. Great clean and tidy room. Free Wifi. Service in bar was good and had a meal from restaurant. Was one of the best meals I've had from a hotel restaurant. Will definitely stay here again.

I love staying here, it's so comfy & relaxed. Staff are just wonderful & nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are a great size, very quiet - like you hear nothing in the rooms! The gym is well setup, sauna is lovely & just the thing to relax on a frosty winter night. The breakfast is great too, table... More

We had flown down with another couple to collect 2 vehicles to drive back to Whangarei. This was the first place we called into and we were not disappointed. Handy to the airport. It was dark when we arrived and dark when we left, so can't comment much on its' location. It was about 8pm at night when we got... More

This hotel provides a consistently high standard of accommodation and service. Our room was spacious, beautifully furnished and well laid out. The leisure facilities were a particular hit with our two boys, and the restaurant breakfast (though not a buffet this time round) was beautifully cooked, plentiful and served by friendly, attentive staff. We are locals, and it is was... More

This is great if you are arriving late or departing early. Rooms are comfy and clean although the hotel is maze like. The free 24hour shuttle is very handy. A good place if you need a handy airport location, they are trying hard and it shows.

Thank you 5xlov for your review. We are pleased that your experience exceeded your expectations of an airport hotel. The hotel can seem like a bit of a maze because of the proximity of the airport and the gradual expansion of the hotel over the last 40+ years. It is our expectation that all of our guests are shown to... More
