I booked this hotel on the recommendations from other reviews and yes they were correct. This hotel has attentive customer service, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are warm, the beds are very comfortable, restaurant meals are good, it's close to airport, campervan rentals and a supermarket. The family room we had was very quiet. The courtesy hotel bus...

The Commodore feels almost more like a home than a hotel. The wonderful Concierge staff who do the airport run are friendly and gracious.

Lovely welcoming hotel with a comfortable reception and helpful staff to greet you. Close to the airport but no aircraft noise and a courtesy vehicle. Rooms are very nicely decorated and beds are amazing. The complementary daily drinks are a nice touch. Great outdoor area.
