May I just say how attentive the front desk staff always was. Whether it was to greet us at the door upon entering or exiting, providing excellent reviews and directions to activities in the area, or looking out for a package delivery, the front desk staff is excellent

Commodore Airport Hotel, Christchurch
Great hotel
Really great hotel. Also, had a good fish dinner in the bar. The only thing that is little lackluster were the scrambled eggs and breakfast wasn't really hot.
