Stayed here our last night in NZ. The staff welcoming and helpful. The room clean large comfy and well equipped. The spa nice and quiet. The bar and restaurant a real treat even outside seating with fire and TV. The food was really good and excellent value for money. They run a free shuttle on request and only 5 minute...

Great hotel for business clientele. Courteous and professional staff with great amenities including free shuttle service to airport and complimentary local bus passes. Very accommodating and everything you'd expect from a high end hotel in New Zealand.

Rooms and staff are very nice. Easy shuttle to airport. Restaurant is very pricy, but food and services good. Hot tub could be hotter. Must go to bar for ice. (Typical in New Zealand). The rooms are clean and spacious with really cool bathrooms. Grounds include gardens, tennis and basketball. Also special rates with nearby golf course

This hotel is very well located close to the airport (with a courtesy bus on demand) and regular buses into Christchurch. The staff were really friendly and efficient, and we enjoyed facilities including the small spa pool, large swimming pool (a bit cold) and lovely bar area with big fire. Our room was spacious and clean with generous toiletries (but...

We had 2 nights here at the beginning of our recent holiday. Started with a late night transfer from the airport thanks to an appalling bit of work by NZ immigration. Good-humoured help from the Commodore staff even at 2am. I had a problem with a suitcase and received lots of helpful advice. Hiring a car on site was quick,...

From help with reservations in Christchurch to checking out The Commodore Hotel provided excellent service and assistance during a stressful time with a family member in hospital.

Nice hotel with comfortable beds and a decent restaurant. Proof against small earthquakes, as I found one night. A bit far out of town but really the only place to stay if you need/want to stick by the airport.
