Great staff for starters. Cannot ask for a better team when I stay there. Always happy to help and assist in any manner. We stay there for business quite often and the rooms are fantastic. Not sure what the standard rooms are like but the business rooms are great. Thanks for always making us feel welcome

We stayed at the Commodore for one night at the end of our trip to the South Island, as we wanted to be close to the airport, and we though it was great. The room was spacious, quiet and clean. We decided to eat at the hotel restaurant and although busy, as it was a Friday night, we had what...

I was impressed by the fact that everyone I spoke to at the hotel had the same very high levels of courtesy and politeness. It was also the best night's sleep I had had in a hotel for a long time. Top notch.

Stayed here the second time (formerly Copthorne Hotel Commodore) on Dec 23 and 24 for leisure. First time was in late January 2013 for business. Conveniently located near the airport and major motorways, but a little far from downtown Christchurch, which is about 15 min's drive but there's bus service. The room spacious, comfortable and makes you feel at home....

My wife and I are currently staying and are overwhelmed by the service, quality and experience here at the commodore hotel. Let's start with service. Obviously very highly trained with sound systems. Having stayed at many hotels, the staff and service here cannot be faulted. Next is the restaurant meal we just completed. As good as anything we have experienced...

I've stayed here 3 or 4 times before when I'm running seminars. I find the location great especially for out of town people who have flown in. It's a busy well run hotel/conference complex yet children would be equally at home here. Great pool and a nice garden type setting outside with tables and the bar very close.

I was impressed with free airport shuttle, the driver was a classic and the service couldn't be faulted. The location is a little further out from the airport but not bad. The room was large and comfortable. We arrived late and left relatively early so didn't experience the dining setup. The bar looked great, maybe next time. This hotel is...
