So pleased, we booked it again
After our first stay at the Commodore on the front-end odnoue New Zealand trip, we were so impressed with the service and quality that we booked it at the end, too. Friendly, accommodating staff coupled with very close proximity to the airport makes this place a dream.

Stay here. Period.
We weren’t in Christchurch for long and we’re heavily delayed the night of our arrival. The team at the Commodore were so accommodating, it completely wiped the frustration away. From a quick airport pickup to a bar staff that cooked us an off-menu meal, they really keep the customer in mind. Special shout out to Callum at the bar who is a rare gem in customer service. These guys kicked off our trip to the South Island with a bang, and we couldn’t be more grateful.

Overpriced. Don't order breakfast at this hotel!
My complaint of being charged $33 for buffet breakfast at check-out even though I was told breakfast was included at check-in was never resolved by the hotel customer service agent "Tiffany". She invited me to send her a full description on the hotel website (which I did) after my initial complaint on Hotel.com.
