“Much more than a convenient airport hotel”
Reviewed 1 May 2011

Flying out of Christchurch on a 7 AM flight made staying at this hotel convenient. Upon check-in, though, we realized it was much more than convenient. It was impressive! Front desk personnel (both at check-in and check-out) were friendly and efficient. Every staff member we encountered was extremely cordial, even when just passing in the hall. We had reserved a superior room, and it was most definitely superior. Very clean, spacious quiet and secure,with a garden view. Free shuttle service to & from the airport upon demand – no sitting around waiting. Drivers were prompt, courteous and friendly. Burnside Park, a huge sports park, is within walking distance. A walk around the park is a great, relaxing way to stretch your legs before or after a long flight. The experience at the Copthorne Hotel Commodore was a pleasant ending to an already incredible 3-week stay on the South Island.

Clean, neat, tidy, modern and well serviced hotel. We (my husband and three year old son) stayed for three nights at the start of our trip around the south island and then again on the last night before we left. They have a free shuttle bus service that picks you up and drops you off at the airport, plenty of parking, heated rooms, Pattersons restaurant - great meals and buffet breakfast, heated indoor swimming pool and spa. Walking distance to the International Antartic Centre. We took the free shuttle bus to the Antartic Centre and then walked back to the hotel with our three year old - no problems.

From the ease of a quick phonecall at airport on arrival, van and cheerful driver arrives quickly. Easy welcoming check in. Rooms lovely and clean. Great food in restaurant. Comfy beds, and obliging staff. Have stayed here numerous times over the last 15 years and always get the same consistant standard. Good value for money and sometimes can get even better rates inclusive of breakfast. Only place to stay in transitting overnight.

We stayed at the Copthorne Hotel Commodore Christchurch Airport for one night after arriving at the airport and before we picked up our rented campervan. Their communication prior to our holiday was great. They provided very clear instructions on how to contact them when we arrived at the airport, and we very much appreciated their free airport shuttle service. Very soon after the tragic February earthquake, they were proactive in contacting us to assure us that their hotel didn't suffer any damage. Once we checked in, we found every staff member to be totally focused on making our stay a pleasant one - from the warm welcome we received at the reception desk, to the restaurant and housekeeping staff, to the on-site manager. We're from the United States and this was our first trip to New Zealand. The folks at the Copthorne Hotel Commodore made a great first impression, and we're sincerely appreciative.

Only stayed the one night and found the staff to be excellent, the room was warm, cosy and modern with plenty of room to move. The restaurant, "Pattersons" was one of the the best dinning experiences we have had anywhere.

The staff went above and beyond to check me in to my room early after a long international flight. That was the highlight of my stay, and otherwise it was a normal hotel with friendly staff & clean rooms.
