Commodore Airport Hotel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very comfortable hotel close to the airport. There are several restaurants within 3km away if you have a car. Staff fantastic and the free airport shuttle on demand was very convenient.

After the long, long overnight flight to New Zealand, the only thing we wanted was to get to our hotel and slide into bed. I was really hoping for a hassle-free transportation and check-in and I got my wish. The Commodore made it so easy and comfortable: the shuttle from the airport was fast and free, the check-in process was smooth and fast, and the room itself was quiet and nice, with extremely comfortable bedding. I was really happy with the whole experience. The restaurant was good for dinner and breakfast (even going out of their way to set up outdoor heaters when we wanted to sit outside!), the grounds were lovely with trees and flowers, and the free shuttle took us right to our campervan rental the next morning. The room was good-sized with plenty of room for our family of 4. I didn't feel like there was much to do in the immediate area- maybe not the best base for exploring downtown Christchurch- but as a rest stop after a long journey it was perfect.

Ended our stay in New Zealand with this little gem of a hotel stay. Front desk was wonderful in giving us advice on where to go and what to see while in Christchurch and more importantly on how to get there and back. Close to airport with free shuttle provided.

A quick stay at a very nice hotel a stones throw from the Christchurch airport. Excellent staff, nice room, and a great dining experience. Free 24 hour shuttle to the airport is most appreciated. Highly recommended. Wish we would have had time to explore the other offerings this place had.

We had a one night stay here before heading out on our vacation. Great amenities, helpful staff. The hotel was more than we expected. We will stay here again

Staying near airport, this worked out perfectly, staff was great.

Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. They went out of their way with every interaction, including a site tour upon arrival. Accommodations included complimentary wifii, pool, spa, bar. Food very good but expensive. Location great, near airport, Antarctic museum and cityproper.

The Hotel was elegant, warm and friendly. Everyone from the front desk clerk to the Maid service was quite professional and friendly. I wish i could have stayed longer!!!

Excellent hotel with nice pool. First room I was in didn't have air conditioning, but they moved me to one that did when requested. A few rooms are still being upgraded. Free shuttle to airport runs 24hrs on request. Internet not free but fast if you pay the $5. Very close to airport; a 5 minute ride.

This hotel is excellent. The location is perfect relative to the airport and city. The staff was very courteous, friendly and competent. The room was one of the best I had in my two weeks of travel. Most highly recommended hotel in New Zealand.

From check in through drop off at the airport, this hotel provides a personalized, out of the ordinary, friendly touch. Room and atmosphere of hotel was excellent. I travel frequently, and this hotel is in my top percentile for business or leisure travel.

This hotel was very nice and really close to the airport. There was a free shuttle that takes you to the airport 24/7 and free Internet in the lobby.

This was a wonderful hotel with great service, just exemplary. The pool and gym were great. The food was wonderful with fast service. I would gladly stay at this chain anytime.

We stayed here at the end of 3 weeks of traveling. I was very happy with the room. It was quiet, spacious, and the bed was comfortable. I appreciated the shuttle service from the rental car drop off and again early the next morning to the airport. The restaurant food was good and it was nice to be able to eat right at the hotel. The location was close to the airport, rental car return and the Antarctic Center. My only frustration was with the internet. I could not get on in my room. Staff was willing to help but mentioned that Wifi was free in the lobby. I still had a difficult time getting on in the lobby. Staff was again very helpful and I was successful in the lounge.If they could clean that up that would be fabulous. Also, we waited a 30 minutes for a pick up at the rental car office. After 30 minutes I called and they were very prompt in coming to get us. Perhaps my problem was that I had the rental agent call for me. Maybe the message did not get relayed properly. Outside of those 2 mishaps everything was great. I would not hesitate to stay again.

We stayed at the hotel after a long journey from San Francisco. The hotel was lovely, and much better than we expected. It is a little removed from the city center, but the hotel gives you a free bus ticket to town. The bus stop is just across the road from the hotel, and buses run twice an hour. There are not any restaurants nearby so we opted to eat at the hotel, and the Patterson's Restaurant was fabulous. One of the nicest meals we ate in New Zealand, although we did not know it at the time, as this was our first night there. In all, it was a wonderful stay.

The best thing about this hotel is its vicinity to Christchurch airport, and its 24 hour shuttle service. The accommodations are fine, although the hotel is undergoing some renovations. The only real negative is the excessive pricing for the use of the internet.

The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Would recommend it others.
