Commodore Airport Hotel, Christchurch

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Often as not airport hotels leave a lot to be desired, not so the Commodore.

It has good rooms, a good bar and an acceptable restaurant. There is the added bonuses of a swimming pool and an excellent on-demand shuttle bus to the airport that caters for anti-social flight times.

Would definitely recommend.

We recently had a 4 day stay at this great hotel situated in a nice quiet location just near the Christchurch airport. The location and their free 24 hour airport shuttle is fantastic! Arriving late at night from Australia we were very efficiently and pleasantly whisked from the airport to the hotel. The staff, facilities ,restaurant and atmosphere are first class! I would not hesitate to recommend my friends stay here if they are visiting Christchurch.A very pleasant experience all round!

Room Tip: Most rooms have nice views over the surrounding gardens and countryside.

Since we took a very early flight, we stayed one night at this hotel. It took only five minutes to the airport. The hotel has good shuttle service.
The room was clean and wide enough, very comfortable. We did not use, but the hotel had good pool. Also staffs are kind and friendly.
It takes only 15 minutes drive to city center from the hotel. If you prefer quiet place, the hotel is good not only for the airport, but also for your longer stay in Christchurch.

This has to be the best airport hotel I have stayed in in NZ. Nothing fancy, but comfortable and restful-just what we needed before a long flight to the UK. My teenage sons and I liked in particular the pool-again nothing fancy but perfectly adequate to stretch and the Jacuzzi was a welcome attraction. Most memorable were the free hotel transfers to the airport and to the nearby Antarctica centre (we got free entry as part of a hotel package). As an aside this would be the only way I would visit the Antarctica centre-all very nice but as a resident in NZ who can see the real thing (snow, penguins etc) really nothing spectacular. Other things worth of note are the bar and restaurant-very comfortable and welcoming. Food very good and the wine selection excellent.

This establishment is located quite close to the airport and is very convenient.
During the summer it is the place to stay for all the scientists and aircrew flying down to the Antarctic bases and has a lot of memorabilia on show.
The rooms are more than adequate and the service is first class.
If contemplating a stay - book early.

Room Tip: Book early and ask for a room that looks into the garden.

Very nice rooms and staff, and wifi was for the most part quite good! It's not too far into town and there's a very fun private lounge you can have snacks in and watch TV, highly recommend! The gym could use some sprucing up but a nice hot tub makes up for it. Wasn't a huge fan of the food.

This hotel was perfectly situated for my needs in Christchurch, being close to everything I was here for. The place is clean and tidy, with all the amenities you'd expect. For the age of the buildings it's in very good condition. The standout however is the level of service. I was always greeted with a smile and a pleasant attitude, and everything I asked for, the staff were only too pleased to assist with.
The hotel is not right in the city centre, but it's close to the airport (they even provide a free shuttle service) so it was perfect for my needs.
