Commodore Airport Hotel, Christchurch

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 February 2010

It is a very good hotel. Very well located close to the airport but in a quiet site from which is easy to reach the city centre (the hotel has agreements with public bus lines and free transfer to airport). It is a business hotel which is also perfect from leisure trips. Big rooms in a nice atmosphere. The staff was particularly helpfull. Better than staying in the hotels in the city centre.

I can but echo the comments of past reviewers, large comfortable rooms, great staff and a perfect spot for a nights accomodation before flying in or out. Our kids especially like the heated indoor pool pefect after a days driving. Room service dinner was reasonably priced and good quality. Very happy with this choice of stay.

The rooms were large, luxurious and clean. We got very helpful service from reception including free public bus tickets into the city, free shuttle bus to and from the airport and two free drinks at the bar!

We stayed here on the last night of our holiday on the South Island, mainly because we had a very early flight to Sydney the next morning. It's a good quality airport hotel but the main virtue are the excellent, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Everyone we encountered from reception to room attendant to the bus driver dropping us at the airport was just so helpful and cheerful (even at 05.00 am!).

Faultless free transfer from airport and no hassle with a 4am transfer back tomorrow. Friendly check in, free drink voucher each. Then personally escorted to the room (not just an x on a map!) They offer free transfers to local shops, free bus ticket into town and even to church and back if required.
Had dinner which was our best meal on our 5 day trip in Christchurch. The style and presentation shows thought and care and I wont use the word 'maitre d' as it was more relaxed just oozed care and attention whilst chatting animatedly to clients who were obviously regulars. As someone who works in the travel industry, I say 'well done' to the family owners. Oh and my husband was impressed with the fitness centre

Highly recommended. Free shuttle from airport which takes 5-10 mins. Checkin was quick and efficient. Hotel looks newly refurbished with thick carpets and lots of timber creating a very nice quiet ambience. No aircraft or traffic noise at all. Huge, modern room which was immaculate. Had breakfast (continental buffet) which was good. Only downside was the beds are a bit soft but that's our personal taste. Excellent value overall.

The newly refurbished rooms were modern and spacious. Quality bedding and furniture. The bathroom was amazing! The outlook from our 3rd floor room was beautiful - overlooking a lush garden with rock waterfall. It's not hard to see why this hotel has won many Christchurch Garden awards - the grounds were a tourist attraction in themselves. Can't recommend this one highly enough. Truly a pleasant surprise. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Christchurch. A 5 minute travel into the city, but worth it to stay in a great place like this.
