My third time staying at the Commodore in Christchurch whilst on business. Rooms are well speced, bed comfortable and all very clean (most important to me). The best aspect of staying here though is the service from staff - nothing is too much trouble and everybody talks to you like they really care - well done guys!

Stayed for one night. Service is far superior to most other hotels I stay in (airline crew). Highly recommend staying in this hotel. Ate in the restaurant. They made a low carb option especially for me and it was delicious.
