“Exceed expectations!”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

I stayed at this hotel for one night to catch an early morning flight. This is one of the best serviced hotels I've stayed in Australasia in the past few years! My experience started with the most helpful and friendly staff members at check-in, accompanied by courteous and professional staff to my room. This was followed by stunning garden view, and well presented room. Attention to details and professional services really shine! Indoor swimming pool was also a delight. And Pattersons restaurant had modern cuisine sourced from local; it's delicious. The shuttle service was no hassle. Overall, this is an excellent airport hotel. It's also a great option for longer stay and visits to CBD.

Room Tip: Second level is better than the first.

We stayed for three nights on two visits over a week. On both occasions all aspects of the hotel's services were first rate. The hotel is 10 minutes from the airport via free shuttle with the shuttle also available for other trips to shops etc. Reception staff were friendly and efficient, both times we were in our room in minutes. We stayed in the new wing and the rooms were brilliant, the second stay room on the fourth floor had a large bath and a pleasant view across farmland. Service and food in the restaurant was excellent. Other facilities included a heated pool and no-charge long term storage for our large travel bag whilst we were travelling. If we return to Christchurch in the future it will be straight back to this hotel. We recommend it highly.

Room Tip: The new business class rooms are superb.

Managed to get into our room before the check in time which was great considering we were only staying overnight and had an early start the next day.
Check in was quick, staff very helpful, lovely dinner, room good.
Would definitely will use the Copthorne Hotel again.
(Air con could be improved)

Room Tip: Great location for airport.

Perfect place to stay prior or after an early/late flight. The hotel is clean and well maintain, the pool looks amazing, sadly we didn't have time to enjoy it. The airport shuttle was convenient. They even pickup us from the Campervan rental that is located half way from the hotel to the airport.
The staff was welcoming and friendly. Nice and comfy rooms. excellent beds. breakfast included was good, not pretentious but balanced. If you are starting a road trip with a campervan, there is a major supermarket a short drive ahead. Dinner at the hotel restaurant was enjoyable. After staying at many hotels near Christchurch Airport before, will definitely stay here again.

We only stopped here one night at the end of our three week tour of the South Island and flying out following morning. Hotel has airport shuttle to/ from airport at 10 minutes notice 24/7.
We had a very friendly welcome from reception and we were allocated room 358 in the refurbished section which we had pre requested. We had done this based on reading other reviews.
So glad we did. This room and I presume the others in this section are superb in every detail. Very modern but every detail has been studied and put into the room. Just superb and probably best room we have stayed in during our stay.
Hotel atmosphere again very good and lively in the bar. Food very good choice and value for money.
We would certainly stop here again and although by the airport not far from the city by transport.
I must compliment the hotel and the design staff for their good work and attention. Unfortunately this time we only had a short stay so we did not have the time to use the facilities like the swimming pool, gym, courtyard etc
If you need a hotel in this location don't hesitate book it. A good start or end to a holiday.

Room Tip: We had a superb room in the refurbished section. Room 358. Just superb in every aspect. Very modern...
