In Christchurch we always stay at the Commodore. Stayed twice, for a total of 11 days, in our recent 5 week trip to NZ. Very conveniently situated and well away from the dust of the post-quake demolitions in the city. The staff are always so friendly and helpful. Everywhere is spotless and there's a great range of room layouts to choose from - family rooms, business rooms and a honeymoon corner room. Plenty of choice on the menu with the bar nearby. And if it's warm there's the garden room outside. If you like felines, keep an eye out for Ken the Cat.

Room Tip: If the budget will stretch, go for a business level room

This is our second visit to this hotel and we were not disappointed. Since our last visit a beautiful outdoor seating area with gas fire and large television screen had been installed. Our room was quiet and with wonderful heavy curtaining we were not woken at first light. With breakfast served until 10.30am and check out at 11am it meant we could have a leisurely start to the day. Our only criticism is with the toasters at breakfast. They need to be updated as they take so very, very long to cook a piece of toast. Overall a wonderful time and would recommend to anyone arriving in Christchurch by plane as it is just a few minutes from the airport but with very little disturbance from planes flying over.

This is a very good hotel, with very kind and helpful service and comfortable rooms. The food was good too. I wish we could stay there more. I think this is the best hotel we've been to in the South Island.

Room Tip: We had the Banks Peninsula room - which is great for families.

Used the hotel as a base for 3 nights for touring the area. Large and comfortable room on the ground floor by the main staircase but no real noise. Only negative was the room looked out on a dark garden area and there was little natural light. We ate both in the restaurant and the bar area and along with the breakfasts everything was excellent including the very young staff that were in attendance. The hotel is used by the US Antarctic Expedition as a stopover so the bar can be very busy at times and it's worth booking a table in the restaurant. Everyone was early to bed though as they had very early flights out in the morning. A large parking area and easy access to the main roads in to town and out to Canterbury with the airport minutes away make this an excellent base. We even had the house cat protecting our bedroom door at night!

Room Tip: Higher floors will give you more natural light
