The entire staff at the Commodore are to be commended for making us feel extra special during our stay. They provide exceptional customer service and went out of their way to assist us in any way they could. The room was large and we had a nice view of the courtyard, the bed was comfortable and the room was quiet...

We stayed at this airport orientated hotel for one night and found it very pleasant. The outward appearance is nothing special but the entry foyer, corridors and bar/ dining areas are welcoming with a good feel. The extensive use of wood paneling, especially on the ceilings , gave a modern feel. Indeed the hotel , which is an original 1970...

Checked in after a week of travel and sightseeing on Sth Island. Catching an early flight to Sydney. Accomodation superb. Staff totally professional and could not be more helpful and friendly. Minutes from the airport with a courtesy bus at your beck and call. We did not check it out but literature indicates that the courtesy bus will drop you...

We were visiting Christchurch for a family wedding and stayed at the Commodore due to its wonderful location. I am so glad we did ! From the moment we checked in, the staff were wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble and we were always greeted with a smile. The swimming pool was an added bonus

Love this hotel. While it is not the most luxurious hotel, it does provide very comfort with attention to details. Let's start with the bed, it is one the most comfortable beds I have slept in. My spacious room is well sound proofed. The thick curtain has over 12 inches overlap. If you can not block the lights out of...
