This is a real 10 out of 10 hotel. We ended our amazing NZ tour at the Commodore and it could not of been better. With warm and friendly staff to greet us, a comfortable, spacious and clean room, and all the great facillities this hotel offers you could not ask for more. We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon in the...

We closed out a three week road trip of NZ by staying here. Good food, friendly staff, comfortable bed, clean room and close to the airport. We had a very early morning flight and the staff insured we had a quick and easy checkout.

We were on a tour, with others all in our hire cars, when I severely injured my hip. In fact I ruptured tendons between hip and pelvis. Three days in the Commodore were not part of the plan. They were so helpful in every way finding us a room for the fourth night, when they were trying to deal with...

Although listed as an airport hotel, the Commodore is a short road journey away, however they do operate a 24 hour on-demand shuttle service using more than one mini bus so wait times as minimal. There's a free phone to call the hotel in the arrivals lobby at the airport. Having been picked up we checked in which was smoothly...

We stayed here for 1 night on arrival in Christchurch (business level room) at the end of December and 1 night before departure (regular room) mid January. Both stays were excellent. The hotel has a nice balance of being professional but very welcoming. On our first stay we treated ourselves to the business level room, loved the bath with glass...

Great place to stay before our early morning flight. The staff was very helpful. Room minibar and fridge nicely stocked? There was a pool and hot tub. The 24/7 shuttle was very handy. Room was adequate.

We rarely award our top marks but this hotel hits the spot. Friendly staff a good room with good lighting so you could see at night so many hotels have such poor lighting if you leave before dawn it is difficult to check you have all your belongings. Two suitcase racks and a voucher for a free drink. What more...

As an ex Christchurch resident I have always enjoyed this hotel now when we travel overseas we stay the night before departure and enjoy their courtesy coach to the airport . A family run hotel,Rooms are great as is the service. The vegetation menus is limited but can always find enough. Very popular and always the same high standard.

Outstanding. Honestly we couldn't have come away more satisfied with our stay. We borrowed bikes and rode to the Antartica centre. A must do. Food was great as was the room. I'll be staying there again when I next need to stay in Christchurch for sure.
