We stayed for two nights prior to departing NZ after a 9 day holiday in the South Island of NZ. The hotel is well located, and although only a couple of minutes from the airport, there was very little aircraft noise. We had a large well appointed room with a QS and 2 single beds. It also had a large... More

The Copthorne is an excellent place to stay when you have just flown into Christchurch. The free shuttle took us from the airport to the hotel, although they are just as happy to take you to the shops in the shuttle bus. The swimming pool was nice and clean, and there was a sauna and gym. If you want the... More

We were greeted by the driver who wore a suit and made us feel very welcome. The staff at the... More

I wanted a hotel airport and this seemed to be best one available. All I can say is that it is much more than just a convenient location. It really is an excellent hotel that gets so many things right. I could have happily stayed here for a week during my trip. Very relaxing but also has the latest technology.... More

This is a good airport hotel but isn't really somewhere i would choose to stay unless i was taking a flight. The hotel is well located and the rooms comfortable. The food is not particularly good value but the portions are huge so you could probably get away with sharing a portion between two! We had requested a quiet room... More
