Commodore Airport Hotel, Christchurch
1st Time In New Zealand
Very nice, clean, and comfortable. Friendly staff.

Commodore Airport Hotel, Christchurch
Very Good8.0
Convenient to the airport, but quite far from downtown. The hotel is clean, and the reception was warm and cheery. For some reason we were given an ADA accessible unit, and we did not love that the toilet was essentially in the shower, but otherwise, it was comfortable and nice light.
