Accommodation at it's finest.... Whether you're escaping from work or bringing it with you, Christchurch's COMMODORE AIRPORT HOTEL has much more to offer than hotel facilities. We're a family owned business with a service that is genuine and facilities that are the envy of many resorts. And our guests are names, not just room numbers. Owned by the Patterson and Ward families, The COMMODORE opened for business on Christmas Day 1971 with 12 double rooms, kitchen, restaurant, and reception area. Set in award-winning native New Zealand gardens on seven acres of land, today the hotel offers 116 executive rooms, conference rooms and 'resort-style' leisure facilities with indoor swimming pool, spa, sauna and gymnasium. Christchurch International Airport, the US Antarctic Programme, and Technology Park, the city's 'Silicon Valley' are nearby. The 'Business Level' meets the needs of the executive guest. Comprising nine international business-class rooms and 'The Commodore Suite', guests can enjoy an airport 'meet and greet', Vingcard security access, total-climate integrated air conditioning, and feature glass wall bringing natural light into the bathroom. The ability to watch television from the bath is enticing. Added to that 'The Commodore Suite' offers a separate lounge with home theatre, spa bath and, of course, views of the magnificent Southern Alps.
