Sustainability

The Commodore Hotel anticipate our guest requirements with innovation and flexibility. We provide sustainable top class business and leisure facilities and offer excellent service so that our guests have a memorable experience.

As a part of the local and international community the Commodore understands that its actions impacts those around us as well as the environment at large. We are proud to have received the Enviro Gold award from Qualmark for our commitment to being a sustainable luxury accommodation. 

The Commodore is actively involved in reducing our impact on the environment, helping various charitable organisations where ever possible and supporting local artists and suppliers.

As our commitment to helping New Zealand remain a clean and green country, we make sure to preserve our award winning gardens with utmost care, we continually monitor and aim to reduce our impact on the environment by implementing the latest energy saving devices. 

To support our community we source all our produce from locally owned and operated suppliers and utilise the skills of local craftsmen for any work done around the hotel. We re-used timber from our rooms during the refurbishments in 2016-2017 which reduced our actual consumption of natural wood by 60% for a similar project.
