Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 August 2011

Stayed early July at the start of a 3 week NZ family holiday. Prompt airport shuttle pickup and efficient, friendly check in. Very spacious family room, with nice decor and comfortable beds. Small kitchenette and good size flat screen TV. Huge bathroom with heated floor was appreciated at the next morning. Had dinner at the hotels Pattersons restaurant and the food and service was great. A really enjoyable meal at good prices too.
Not many airport hotels are as great as the Copthorne Commodore and we thought the room rate was a bargain as well. Well done to all the team there.

Room Tip: Peninsula room perfect for families.

We stayed here having had our Queenstown flight cancelled so drove to Christchurch and arrived at the hotel late at night. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and we were upgraded to the Hillary Suite which was lovely - separate living, kitchen and dining area with a huge and comfortable bed. Unfortunately we weren't able to take full advantage of the hotel facilities as we had to leave at 5am to fly out but the 24 hour hotel airport transfer bus was there and waiting to take us. The freephone number was also very helpful when booking as we had no mobile phone access. A great hotel which I'd recommend.

Excellent location if one is needed close to the airport at Christchurch. The pick-up service is wonderful to and from the airport and if you have business in the airport area, then the same service applies. Very friendly and reliable!! The rooms are good as is the small but well equipped gym, and the heated pool in winter is just wonderful.

The Commodore has a good bar area, and dinning area conveniently located - although the restaurant could do with more attentive service staff at least on my last stay there.

Stayed a few nights for work this week. The business rooms are very comfortable, quiet and well setup. Internet connection was excellent, fast and useful for Skype video meetings. Check in and out was easy.
Restaurant food was excellent, but busy so I would have preferred room service dinner if it had been available.
Staff are great and very professional. I'd recommend this place to my best customers.
The only negative was the price in all areas. Maybe that's just the way it is in Christchurch at the moment?

We got in on a late flight and had to wait till the next day for a flight to Wellington. Airport pickup was quick and hassle free. The room was warmed up already (nice when coming in from 30+ degree temperatures!) Mattresses were very comfortable room was clean and quiet no complaints could not have really asked for more on the room side. The breakfast buffet the next morning was good though I think the hotel should invest in a better toaster. I used to stay at various CBD hotels for work trips but with those no longer an option I will switch to the Commodore next time I am in town.

As a plus my daughter left her watch and the hotel called us later that day and are sending it along in the post.

We used the hotel for an overnight stop while connecting to with another flight. From pick up to drop off the hotel offered excellent service. We ended up being snowed in and couldn't fly the day that we were supposed to and the hotel did all that it could to cater for our needs. The hotel is super clean, warm, provides good food, has friendly and helpful staff that go out of their way to do whatever they can to help you, even in a stressful time. I would highly recommend this hotel. They also provide international power plug connection if needed.

Room Tip: provide international power plug connection, you can get a dvd recorder to watch movies, comfortable...

We didn't actually stay here, but came for a meal for my husbands birthday with his family. It was really nice.
The meals were great, the service was great, over all it was an excellent day!

The hotel was clean, tidy, and quiet. There was no (visable) earthquake damage.

The staff were really friendly and helpful. I would definitly stay here.
