“Like clockwork - Great place to stay”
Reviewed 25 September 2010

Great place to stay if you have an early morning departure and rental car .
Dropped car off at airport around 2000Hrs on Saturday night and called hotel from free phone at Airport - waited only 5 mins for pickup in shuttle bus . The Service the next morning at 0400 was just as good - went down to lobby and waited about 3 mins for shuttle bus to Airport . Helpful staff very clean motel . Close to Airport but not many planes on night we stayed -so can't comment about that

We stayed here for a very short nice on route from Sydney to Queenstown. Arrived very late and left very early, so didn't get to spend much time at the hotel, but was very happy with the few hours we spent there. Called the hotel from the airport when we arrived, and within ten minutes max. we got got collected by the shuttle - very pleasant young driver.

When we arrived at the hotel, we fancied a beer but the bar was shut - they offered to re-open it for us without us asking, which we accepted - not many hotels would do that. The guys on reception were also very nice and helpful.

The rooms are fairly standard 4* - clean and comfortable, nothing special. We had a garden room, and great that most (or all?) rooms have outdoor space. There is a pool, which we didn't use, but it looked nice from the bar!

The wake up call at 5am came in as requested and we got shuttled back very quickly - again, very pleasant driver.

All in all a very good hotel close to the airport.

Arrived at the motel via a free courtesy shuttle from the airport after midnight. Check in was quick and efficent and we arrived in our lovely room to find the lights on low and classical music playing on the radio. Room was lovely and quiet. Had breakfast in the restaurant downstairs (yum). Staff very friendly and welcoming including bus drivers and cleaners. Only regret was that we only stayed for 6 hours before heading out again! Wanted to check out the pool but did not have time!!!

I am not a fan of airport hotels. I chose this one as this was the best rated closed to the airport. When we arrived, I picked up the hotel phone near the bagage clam area, and 5 minutes later the free hotel shuttle was there to pick us up. They gave us the family room, which is VERY spacious with 3 beds... Bathroom was huge as well, with heated floor!

Service was very good, breakfast a little pricey for what you get for however. The following day we took the shuttle when we were ready, 5 minutes from the airport. Hotel is due for some investment in terms of furnitures and decoration. Otherwise we liked it very much.

Everything about this hotel suited us perfectly, close to the airport, close to Maui where picked up and dropped off our campervan. Pick up and drop of service to the airport and Maui.

Meals in the restaurant were fantastic.

To Thomas Patterson and his team at the Commodore.
I wanted to pass on our thanks to you and your team for the unexpected nights accommodation and dinner we had compliments of Jetstar. (cancelled flight)
From the moment we arrived to the time of our departure the next morning, I was blown away by the superior service you and your staff showed to us. It was obviously a really full night for you and I cannot speak too highly about the professionalism and friendly service we encountered. Your staff were easy to interact with, nothing was too much trouble and in a lovely kiwi way they excelled.
Other details noticed were the artwork and photos around the hotel - maps of the complex, understated and tasteful decor, restaurant furnishings, layout and menu design and covers. The meal itself was divine and although dessert was unnecessary it was sublime. The menu covered all bases but wasnt crowded! The meals themselves arrived in good time on warm plates with faultless taste and visuals!
Great work chef and kitchen staff. Anna our lovely waitress is a credit to your team.
Wonderful! I would be happy to recommend the Commodore to anyone.
