A previous review requested free internet connection in the hotel. Pleased to say this has now been instigated - for staying guests at least, so well done Commodore management. Beats me what overseas visitors think when they find themselves being charged for internet access in NZ. Well done, guys!

Room Tip: If you dislike a shower over the bath, request new wing room location

Dear David W,

Thank you for staying with us once again at the Commodore and a follow up review.

We certainly took on board your comments from last November regarding charging for internet. We have invested significant money into providing the very best internet service. We are pleased to say that the free service does not have any restrictions on data and is also available in the hotel lounge for all visitors.

Thank you once again for the follow up and compliment.

Kind regards
Thomas Patterson

this copthorne is a franchise from the chain and definitely steps up the mark compared to other copthornes!

I was checked in by lovely staff on both my stays and offered help to the room

Rooms are very spacious and allow plenty of room for luggage and extras

wokeup 1 morning to horrific construction noise but reception staff were all to happy to help and moved me to a different block right away (MUCH appreciated!)

Dined in restaurant both of my trips and neither disappointed! except for the liquorice ice cream...that was all kinds of wrong....lol

free WIFI is a bonus, would def reccomend!

Room Tip: ask to be in the new wing if you can!

Arriving late in the night, airport shuttle was convenient and service excellent. On arriving at hotel, staff we're expecting us and customer service/reception/porters were pleasant and informative.
We also stayed there the say before our departure. Parking was free and porters were friendly. Reception was efficient.
The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet.
If you have a car, the trip into Christchurch was easy and took around 10-15 mins.
This hotel is convenient location and good quality.

The shuttle service was great and staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed overnight on business premium room, the room was great with great bed and we had great sleep but the food that we had was below average for such a great hotel. What a pity !

After arriving in Christchurch at midnight we were picked up by the hotel shuttle bus and at the hotel in minutes. Reception staff were pleasant and friendly and we were in our executive king room very quick. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very modern. The only thing missing in the shower was somewhere to put the soap (a very minor thing). Definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay near the airport. Definitely not noisy.
