“Excellent comfortable hotel with attentive and genuine staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2012

Excellent service, very comfortable room with all the extras expected. Great personable staff who really seemed to care about our experience in their hotel, and were very helpful. Close to airport for convenience, but very quiet - all had a fantastic sleep.

The Copthorne Commodore Airport Hotel is a perfect hotel if you are flying out to other destinations. Located in a nice residential area, the hotel is literary minutes away from Christ Church International Airport. The hotel is clean, rooms are well appointed and the service is excellent.

When we checked in we got two free drinks passes that we can use in the bar or restaurnt. We had a 5:30am flight the next morning to Sydney and were told they had a 24hr shuttle that would take us to the airport.

The only downside was the food. It was ok but nothing to write home about. However, the bar was hopping if that is your scene!

and a good place to stay near the airport and great for overnight stays. The staff is very helpful with anything you want.....and the shuttle bus even took us to the near by super market as we were too tired to go down for dinner as we had travelled for 15 hours !
We are going to be regulars as we are in transit thru Christchurch very often.

Very clean and comfortable, staff could not be any more helpful. Shuttle service was very helpful and we even got two complimentary drinks at the bar on arrival. Would stay again.

The Copthorne Hotel Commodore Christchurch Airport is close to the Christchurch airport and therefore is used by many travellers. The hotel provides a great 24 hour on call shuttle service. They picked me up after midnight and were then happy to take me back the next morning for me to pick up my rental car.
I stay at a number of hotels in the course of my business and most of them are of a good standard, clean with good beds etc - what makes one hotel stand out above the others is the staff and service they provide. The staff at this hotel were great so my recommendation of this hotel is that it stands out as one of the best. Nothing was too much trouble and all staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. I would defintely stay here again.

With an early morning flight out, this was the perfect hotel. Close to the airport - a wonderful 24 hour shuttle service - spacious room, comfy bed and refreshing shower. And the restaurant was good too - plus the service was outstanding.

Excellent hotel for both business and a base to explore NZ South Island.
Good facilities, very good restaurant.
Extremely helpful service even to the point of dropping guests off at church on Sunday morning and picking them up after Mass.

Will definitely return.
Very near to the airport. You will need o have a car or use the courtesy bus to get around.
