Free VERY Fast WiFi. I chose this hotel as they had a free 24/7 shuttle service to the airport. The rooms are nice and the rooms have everything you need. Even Milo as an option instead of Coffee.Everything else is provided

The service we experienced was exceptional. The staff were very understanding with our situation and extremely helpful. The meals at Pattersons Restaurant were delicious and not too large. The room we had was well laid out and very comfortable.

We arrived with 3 tired kids in tow after midnight to a lovely room with QS bed and foldout sofa plus 2 singles and free wifi. Warmly greeted and helped with our soggy luggage. Bathroom is new and had a wow factor with floor heating and lovely new fittings and towels. Breakfast was lovely and the staff are always helpful....

This is a modern hotel with multiple amenities. Rooms are very spacious and immaculately clean and superbly equipped, with large bathrooms. Staff are very friendly and very accommodating and the shuttle to the airport was prompt and clean. Food at Paterson's was excellent and well priced with ample serving sizes.

We stayed here while touring the South Island, and even though we found this hotel by accident, it couldn't have been "planned" any better. There were some renovations taking place which unfortunately led to a bit of noise in the morning, but our rooms were perfect, location perfect, meals superb, service great, rates reasonable and the staff most obliging. Recommended!

Last night my flight was cancelled and the airline put me up here. I'm six months pregnant and was tired and not happy but staying at the Commodore almost made it worth getting stranded. What stood out for me was the genuine, warm caring service which was exceptional and will be memorable. Staff took the time and talked to me...

We missed our connecting flight due to bad weather and I'm sure the hotel must have had very short notice of the dozen plus people arriving but everything went so smoothly on check in.

Also, they have a shuttle that was helpful for pickup after we dropped rental car at airport and for middle of night ride to airport. That said, the staff was terrific from the front desk to bellman and barman. Room was...

On arriving at the Hotel which is only minutes from the airport, the staff were friendly and polite, especially the concierge who show me to my room, and showed me the facilities.
