17 years ago I started traveling to Christchurch. After a process of elimination the Copthorne (Commodore) became the place to stay. Close to airport but not noisy. Free pickup and return from airport, great rooms that are updated regularly, great staff and food. Free Wifi, gym, pool. Not even an earthquake could shake its service. Is on main bus route... More

A nice old school country style hotel with on demand shuttle service to and from the airport just 2 minutes away. It's also just 15 minutes drive to the CBD that's being rebuilt. Hotel also has very comfy bedding, super friendly staff and a great bar.

When our connecting flights to Christchurch were cancelled/postponed the staff set out all our information for us so that we could hit the ground running when we did arrive the next morning ... and they didn't charge for our rooms the night we couldn't...

I have been meaning to write a review for this hotel. I stayed here in March 2014. I wanted to find a hotel close to the airport as I had a long flight from Ireland-Vancouver-Christchurch. I stayed in a corporate room on the ground floor which was expensive but excellent. The beds were very comfortable, I liked the office space... More

The Commodore seems to go from strength to strength. Our room was excellent and the Front desk staff were as helpful and welcoming as ever. Patterson's had a lively bar atmosphere while the food in the restaurant was of the usual very good quality. We met friends there and the super sociable vibe made for sparkling conversation and a fun... More
