Commodore Airport Hotel
4 out of 5

With the major hotels in CC gone, I was not expecting much from this airport hotel, but it surprised us. The rooms were spacious and very clean, and the staff were very helpful. The only inconvenience is the isolation of the room we were in due to construction of a new wing of the hotel, which meant an outdoor walk in the rain, but that was fairly minor overall. No construction noise while we were there.

We stayed overnight at this hotel and loved everything about it. In a studio room, I could open a window for fresh air, they gave us 2 free drinks vouchers, there was a proper bath, it was a few minutes drive from the airport by the free shuttle, and the room service soup we ordered was cooked in house and delicious. They also have very attractive landscaping around the pool area where we enjoyed our drink. Most important, for people who had to get up at 4 am, the hotel was quiet and the shuttle arrived very promptly when requested. In all, a great place with excellent staff.

You can tell that this hotel is a family run business and the family is very involved. The staff are so friendly and the facilities were immaculate. Beautiful food at the restaurant.

Everything about this place was relaxed, luxurious, and indulgent. We were honeymooners on our way through and despite the hotel obviously being for business travelers it still covered everything needed and hoped for. The staff were prompt and anticipated every need. The porter service was excellent and the place was impeccably clean. The food delicious and of good size and the wine selection to die for.

Old business world charm but very comfortable and cosy room, especially quiet too. Very well appointed, easy parking and lovely restaurant and bar facilities! Airport shuttle very appreciated!

We had an extremely stress free beginning to our trip. We arrived after midnight and it was so easy to pick up the free phone at Christchurch Airport and ring the driver/transfer to the Motel. Rooms were very comfortable (we had the best bed on our trip!) Breakfast next morning was great. No problems to transfer back to Airport to collect our hire vehicle. Room was very quiet. We stayed again on our return, to fly next morning early, and the bar and restaurant was excellent. Lovely outdoor area with a fireplace. We didn't have time to try out the indoor pool, but it looked excellent. This was our fifth trip to New Zealand. Copethorne was a perfect introduction to Christchurch/NZ. Jacq & War. Qld, Aust.

The facilities at Hotel, alongwith staff helpfulness were applaudable. Plus the proximity to airport, ready traffic access to city - though distant, and adjacent golf course made for an ideal stop-over. I would most certainly stay there again.

Excellent service, very beautiful, very clean. Very close to the airport, but with complimentary bus tickets we could get to the city in 20 in whenever we wanted. Really outstanding.

very comfy beds, quiet and great location at end of a flight. Breakfast was good. Complimentary shuttle is great with friendly and helpful driver. Reception for check in could have been a little more attentive and efficient, but check out staff were much better.

Arrived very tired after 36 hrs flying from Manchester. Very friendly and helpful and good facilities and attention to detail from the quick arrival of the free shuttle, help with luggage, room upgrade and lovely swimming pool, comfortable bed, and efficient checkout and shuttle to airport next morning. All this while staff must have been stressed by recent earthquake and aftershocks. I will definitely use again when next flying into Christchurch.

Great location being very close to airport without being in the airport complex. Free shuttle bus was promptly available (24hrs) and great. We used it to dropped our hire car back early and saved a days rental. Have stayed at a few hotels near the airport and would rate this one as the best.
