Commodore Airport Hotel, Christchurch
Very Good8.0
Last hotel in New Zealsnd before returning to USA
Stayed here on our last night of vacation in wonderful New Zealand. I chose this place for the closeness to the airport which is within walking distance (for younger people) and for a reasonable price. The staff really went out of their way to accomodate your needs. We were able to return the rental car early and got a shuttle back -5 minutes to return to the hotel. A little musty and no AC in room. We used a fan that circulated the air. Nice room. Carpet needs cleaning. The hotel restaurant -Patterson's- has really good food. So the convenience an extra plus. Would stay here over the airports Novotel.

Overnight at the Commodore
We found the hotel staff to me very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Don't know much about the area, we were only there one night.

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.
