Always enjoy our stay at the Commodore and particularly the food and service at the restaurant. The hotel staff in general are excellent in attitude and service. It is very close to the airport and has a free shuttle bus for pick up and drop offs, very handy.

We stayed here for 1 night, departing for London the next morning. The hotel was very nice, with a good swimming pool and restaurant. We could happily have stayed here for a few nights. Staff were helpful and attentive.

We stayed here for two nights over New Year. We liked the prompt, complimentary shuttle service between the airport and the hotel and the spacious room. Everything was clean, it had some architectural character, and room service was quick and courteous. There is the added bonus of a sizable pool, a spa and a well-equipped fitness room. There is no...

The Commodore Airport is a clean comfortable hotel close to Christchurch Airport. We were only there briefly the night before an early flight but were impressed with the friendliness and initiative shown by the staff. The hotel is easy to access and provides 24 hr reception which makes it easy for wake up calls and early checkouts. Parking onsite.

My family went to the south island of New Zealand for a week. We stayed all over the island as we traveled, and the Commodore Hotel was by far the best hotel! WE even stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Queenstown and the Commodore blew it away. The rooms are spacious, the food at their restaurant was wonderful, the outdoor...

This family hotel justifies all the good thing said about it by other commentators. We would rate it a great place to stay if you don't want to be in the centre of town. Our only negative comment is a warning that the polished tiles on the floor in the shower room were a hazard when wet. My wife slipped...

This has to be the friendliest hotel around, The suttle service is amazing and exceeded our expectations - the check in staff are very welcoming. All the staff where amazing. We stayed in one of the older rooms, I beleive the whole hotel is getting upgraded. But, regardless of that is was very comforty and suited our needs.
