“Great place!”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

I had a flight disrupted from Christchurch airport and was accommodated at the commodore. What a great hotel, the staff were all so friendly and helpful. The shuttle service was fabulous and the restaurant a pleasant surprise at the end of a long and stressful day. I'll definitely be back if in Christchurch and recommend.

I was really impressed with the hotel service and how welcoming they were. Even more so how the rooms were decked out and very mod. Really nice place with some nice facilities. I well def come back. The dinner was really good with lots to choose. There is even a spa and indoor pool but had no chance to use it.

Room Tip: Def get one like I had in 427

The Copthorne Hotel Commodore has recently completed a new build on an additional wing. From the moment I arrived the staff were oustanding, very helpful and friendly and they couldn't do enough for me. The room was excellent, immaculately clean, very comfortable bed and each night your bed was turned down and chocolates and complimentary biscuits left. The buffet breakfast had a great selection of offerings and a full cooked breakfast was also on offer.

The hotel is in a great location being so close to the airport, it was a great place to stay...

We stayed here for 2 nights when we first arrived in Christchurch for a family birthday party. The room was very spacious and clean and the staff were very friendly. We were given a free welcome drink which we enjoyed on our second day in Christchurch. The room was very quiet and comfortable with plenty of hot water. We had breakfast on the day we checked out and the bacon and eggs were very good but thought that the continental buffet was a little bit on the expensive side although there was a very good choice of cereals and breads and pasties. Would certainly stay at this hotel again if we are in Christchurch. We were in Christchurch for a further four days but had to stay else where as this hotel was fully booked. As we were arriving into Christchurch at about 4.45a.m. from a flight from Melbourne I emailed the hotel to see if we could get into our room early and was told that if we paid for an extra nights accommodation we could have our room early. As we have travelled to a number of places in the world we have never had trouble getting into our rooms early when we have arrived into the city off an early flight.

We stayed one night in a newly opened wing. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Airport shuttle was great. Staff all very friendly and efficient. Only negative was a noisy radiator that kept my husband awake. Great hotel for early morning departures but otherwise would stay further in the city for sight seeing etc.

Comfortable and decently priced. Close to the airport with free shuttle service. I like that unlike other hotels in New Zealand, it does not levy a credit card fee. Free unlimited Wi-Fi in the lounge and restaurant.

Pretty good spacious room and very comfortable bed. I had lousy cell phone reception but the hotel reversed the $10 fee when I complained. Also the clock alarm went off at midnight. I wish all hotels had their housekeeping check this out every day. We chose this hotel so we could use the gym but when we arrived it was closed because of wet carpet. But the staff worked to get my husband to a third party gym. Good hotel near the airport. Not sure I'd recommend the restaurant. Worst OJ I've had for years and there's no excuse for serving crap OJ. Also dinner wasn't great for the prices.

Dear Pppeta,
Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay.
We have taken "on board" your comments in regard to the Alarm Clock. I am sorry that you were inconvenienced by the maintenance in the gym, but pleased you got to experience "Fitness Canterbury". The Bar will from now on be serving only "Real OJ".
Kind regards
