Reviewed 16 November 2010

We had an early morning flight back to Melbourne and this was the perfect place to stay the night before. Staff were very helpful and courteous and the Premier room was very nicely decorated and looked out to the garden. It was also very quiet - no TV noise from the rooms next door or above. Received two free drink vouchers at the restaurant which served an excellent meal. Would highly recommend for those with a need to stay close to the airport.

Perfect hotel, would stay there again. Staff are polite and very helpful. Hotel is very clean, has spacious rooms with all amenities, stocked bar fridge, sky tv etc. Ordered room service, very effiecent and food was hot and tasted great. Try the Chataman islands blue cod or the lamb shank....beautiful
Reception is very helpful, If traveling into town request a bus pass at recepton. This is usually given free of charge and you can use to explore christchurch. Restaurant and bar is great place to unwind. As with most hotel in NZ the lack of airconditioning in rooms is a problem in summer or with a warm dry norwester blowing, rooms can be quite warm during the day.

My wife and I were very impressed with every aspect of service and attention to detail. Staff were only to willing to accommodate requests and did so with a minimum of fuss. I have already recommended the Copthorne to our friends and will be staying again when we return to NZ.

Stayed here two nights with my three children in a family room when we flew into and then when we flew out of Christchurch. Flights were at Midnight and at 6 am in the morning. The shuttle bus was great. Room was big enough for the 5 of us with beds comfy. Buffet breakfast was really nice and the dinner we had in the restaurant was the best meal we had in NZ. Kids loved swimming in the heated pool. Hotel service fantastic. We stayed another night in Christchurch right in the city but wished we had stayed at Copthorne Commodore instead. Will stay here again when visit NZ

Stayed 5 nights in cnr suite on business level. Room excellent quality, very comfortable with views of the snow capped mountains. We had a hire car and this hotel is a great alternative to staying in the center of town as we could get into the city in 5 min and was a great base for exploring the Canturbury area. The Hotel is very well run and efficient, the shuttle service is excellent as we arrived late at night and chose to pick up our car the next day. Pattersons restaraunt is very good and we would have eaten there more but it is part of the bar which gets very noisy and on both nights we ate there groups of business guests got a bit drunk at the bar then continued there drinking very loudly while eating which caused us on both days to cut short dinner and leave as soon as possible(A real shame, as the dinners and the service were excellent). But they will deliver anything from the menu to your room which is a much better option as the food was the best we had on our whole trip. The business level is very modern and my wife loved the bathroom and the large plasma TV which she could watch from the bath thanks to roof mounted speakers in the bathroom(very well thought out by the owners). Housekeeping very good and heaps of car parking. Very good hotel, staff and room.

Less than five minutes from the airport so perfect for an early morning flight. Courtesy shuttle to the airport. Pricey to use the internet at the hotel.
Restaurant at the hotel is very good...quite a nice surprise!
