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...

We stayed at the commodore on two separate weekends of our trip. Great customer service. Better service than any 5 star hotel i have ever stayed at. I requested crayfish around lunch time (even though it was not on their menu) and for dinner we go crayfish! Outstanding staff. I will stay there on my next visit to new zealand.

Great locality close to Airport. Our room on the 4th floor was very spacious, beautifully furnished and very quiet. We had to return a rental car to Airport the night before we flew out and it was not a problem for the shuttle bus to come and pick us up. We had thought we would have to pay for a...

We were well looked after here. We returned our hire car to the airport and went to the hotel in their minibus having already dropped our bags off there. We took the minibus back to the airport the next morning. We took the bus from the hotel into town and the hotel gave us free tickets for the trip. We...

We booked this hotel because of a tour starting point, and I couldn't be happier. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the South Island who would like a very nice place to stay near the city. On site car rental, which we did not need, would be the ideal combination for day trips from the hotel. The hotel has...

Our hotel of choice in Christchurch offers exceptional service. This time we stayed in the new wing and the room was spacious and comfortable. Though there was air conditioning we appreciated the opening windows and the portable fan in the room. There was a pleasant bush outlook from the windows. We love the outdoor bar area with its large fireplace...

This is a real 10 out of 10 hotel. We ended our amazing NZ tour at the Commodore and it could not of been better. With warm and friendly staff to greet us, a comfortable, spacious and clean room, and all the great facillities this hotel offers you could not ask for more. We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon in the...
