Great introduction to NZ

A very comfortable stay. Location met our requirements with a free 24 hour airport shuttle & city bus stop at the front entrance. Staff were helpful except with tourist information, the map that was given to us was outdated.

Great Hotel!

My sister stayed here the night before her departure out of the airport. The room, hotel, atmosphere and amenities were all fabulous. The only slight mark off was for inattentive staff (quite a few were on duty and seemed to ignore us) the night we had a a drink and food in the bar. Otherwise the stay and staff were great. The morning breakfast staff was friendly and prompt. Would definitely stay again!

I booked this for my son and his new wife. Upon arriving the staff realised that they had just got married and called the manager. He organised for them to be up graded, gave them bottle of bubbles, soft drink for their son and nibbles. Very impressed.

Amazing Hotel

Could not believe this hotel was so close to the airport. The room was great as were all the facilities. All the staff obviously enjoy their jobs as this shone through and they could not do enough for us. Highly recommend this hotel.

Great Service

Our stay at commodore copthorne was exceptional. The service from when we first walked in the door till when we left was faultless. They couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was as comfortable and stress free as possible.

Family getaway

The staff were very efficient. The hotel is conveniently placed. Staff were friendly and efficient at 4am when we had to leave to catch our flight. Food was great. Generally good experience. The only problem I had was that when I pulled down the duvet and sheet there was hair in the bed which obviously led me to question the cleanliness of the establishment

Best hotel room

We stayed two nights and decided we'd pay a little extra for a room on the Business level. I haven't seen the other rooms so can't comment whether the extra was worth it or not but it wasn't a lot more anyway. We were impressed with the spaciousness of the room and how well it was fitted out. Very comfortable king bed, beautiful big bathroom with large bath tub, good sized drink making area, good sitting area. Great to stay in a hotel and be able to open doors to the balcony which overlooked a garden so it was totally private and quiet. We've stayed in numerous hotels recently and this was by far and away the best room - even when paying a bit more it's difficult to find one with this much space and access to fresh air on a balcony in a big hotel. The bar and restaurant areas are rather more ordinary. We had dinner there one night - the mains were good but the desserts were awful, so a bit hit and miss. We found the staff friendly and helpful. All in all, highly recommended.
