I recently had a weekend stay at the Commodore CHC airport. From the time the hotel staff picked me up from the airport ex the SQ flight from Singapore to the time that they dropped my back at the airport two days later every thing was fantastic. The hotel is very well run and the staff are the hotels greatest... More

This was an amazing hotel for an Airport Motel. It was quiet, clean and the staff obviously love their jobs as they were all very happy and helpful. Great location to the airport and town. Left some things there and was contacted straight away as to whether we wished them sent on.

I have stayed here a number of times and also tried other hotels. However no more, I am not staying anywhere else in the future. Fabulous spacious rooms, wonderful staff, great location. Courteous fast shuttle to and from the airport. For a third time we rented a car through the hotel car rental, "Touchdown". Excellent service and value. When we... More

I recently enjoyed 2 nights at this hotel. I decided to spring for one of the slightly more expensive business-level king rooms and it was so worth it. The room was extremely comfortable, wonderful bed, air-conditioning/heating easily controlled with a panel on the wall. The bathroom was very clean and well-appointed. The room was extremely quiet (despite some roadworks going... More

For the equivalent price I can stay in the center of Paris and have a much better selection of restaurants. Whilst the service (except for the useless wifi) was good and the people polite this is not enough to mitigate the inflated prices for both the restaurant where they need to update the menu and the rooms.

This was just the warmest welcome into the country for four weary tourists. Beginning with the very prompt shuttle and extremely polite and helpful driver who dropped us off at the desk where two lovely people greeted us so warmly and enquired about our day. Our bags were taken to our room - the Peninsula room. The room was big... More

We booked our last night in Christchurch at the Copthorne Hotel Commodore. Our friends recommended this as it is very close to the airport for an early morning departure. The staff are polite and very efficient. The service provided by the housekeeping department is second to none, Our chosen room was very spacious and well appointed.
