I have not stayed here for a while due to mostly staying close to the city centre. But it is still the same good hotel that it always has been. Customer service is fantastic, beds are super comfortable, food is lovely and nice gardens

Room Tip: I have stayed in most of the room types and if you can afford it the business suites are well above...

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel this week on a quick trip to Christchurch. Staff were very well trained, professional,courteous and very helpful.Very quick pick up at the airport just after midnight and a speedy check in, check out was just as expeditious. Easy access to everything, good facilities and a very pleasant and relaxing surroundings. Nice breakfast, lovely bar area and warm fire in the bar area with interesting artefacts around the walls.The ground were beautifully manicured and loved making it fit well with the country surroundings. Brilliant room with an amazingly comfortable bed! Modern decor and good facilities in the rooms too. Will definitely be staying at this hotel again when in Christchurch. Well done Copthorne.

As someone who is very fussy especially when travelling with two kids (8 & 12, and a pregnant wife), we decided to spend our last day in NZ here after a long road trip and after looking at two other nearby hotels first. I was made to feel so welcome from the moment we arrived, We were offered beautiful spacious rooms and everything was spotless, in fact its the BEST place we have stayed in NZ (we have been to NZ five times before and stayed at many places). The staff, headed by Micheal, are the most helpful and courteous. We were very impressed. Thank you very much for making us feel at home. We look forward to coming back to stay longer.

I spent the day here in June for some professional development for work. It was the perfect venue for that. As soon as I arrived the staff were courteous, professional and helpful. I purchased a coffee from the restaurant first and this was of a great standard and delivered to me promptly, in spite of the number of customers who were present at the time. The lunch that was provided was varied and delicious and there was plenty to go around.

From my quick look around, the grounds outside looked lovely and well kept. I think this would be a nice place to stay in the summer time when you could utilise the outside spaces more.

A very large and spacious room with what looks like a super king bed is just what you need when you arrive around midnight. Very clean, extremely comfortable and a large selection of teas and plunger coffee. I do find that the heating is a bit too hot and I always need to turn it down, not that it's a bad thing. The reception gives out a bus pass valid for 2 hours which is enough time to go into town if needed. Staff friendly and courteous.

This was the third time I have stayed at the Commodore Copthorne and each time I mean to write a review as I always come away a happy guest. All of the staff are incredibly helpful and bend over backwards to help. The rooms are clean, modern and I love the attention to detail.... great to see a hotel set up rooms to encourage recycling. Hopefully I will be able to stay for leisure some time and enjoy the facilities of the hotel. Thanks to the Commodore Copthorne team for another great stay.
