5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My third time staying at the Commodore in Christchurch whilst on business. Rooms are well speced, bed comfortable and all very clean (most important to me). The best aspect of staying here though is the service from staff - nothing is too much trouble and everybody talks to you like they really care - well done guys!

Stayed for one night. Service is far superior to most other hotels I stay in (airline crew). Highly recommend staying in this hotel. Ate in the restaurant. They made a low carb option especially for me and it was delicious.

We spent one night here awaiting a flight out of Christchurch following two weeks of hiking on the South Island. We stayed in the new business wing and we found the room as well as the entire facility to be outstanding. Our room was oversized and immaculate with excellent amenities and with the best mattress that we found in more... More

We stayed here because it was close to the airport where Europcar has its Christchurch depot. We arrived by train from Picton at 18h30 so hired a taxi to the Copthorne. Every encounter with staff was excellent. Friendly, helpful and professional - more so than would normally be expected. Our meal in their restaurant was impressive. We would not usually... More

The staff here truly go out of their way to ensure their clients are well looked after. The hotel is nicely appointed, and the food in the restaurant is not your typical hotel restaurant fare; the food quality, the service standard are as good as you will find in any fine dining establishment. Will stay here again.

We have stated in a number of 'airport' hotels around the world, and this would be probably be the best we have come across. Friendly and helpful staff, complimentary glass of wine, nice meal in the restaurant and good facilities. Probably the only... More

Arrived late night via free airport shuttle. Staff were very nice and service good. Complimentary glass of wine in Patterson's Bar was most appreciated. Beds were comfortable and room clean and neat.

Literally five minutes drive from Christchurch airport. The Hotel has an 'on demand' free shuttle service to/from the airport. Staff were professional and friendly. We had one of the older rooms. These do not have air conditioning. When I asked about this the staff member immediately offered to change our room. We didn't use the restaurant or gym but these... More
