Arrived late, reception took forever to sort my room out. Was there for business so asked them how long to get to St Albans for following morning appt. Was told that it would take 45 mins to 1 hr. I said are you sure, it's Christchurch, nothing takes an hour!!! Was assured it would. Next day left for my supposed... More

First impressions of the Sudima were gained from the hotel shuttle driver who was a polite, helpful and friendly person but upon entering the hotel impressions were revised. The reception area looked tired and run down. The receptionist performed her duties but without a smile or a friendly word. The room was large enough, clean and tidy but without soul.... More

We landed in Christchurch in the early hours of the morning due to a delay on our flight from Sydney. We phoned through to the hotel by use of a free phone located inside the arrivals terminal to arrange the free transfer. The minibus that collected us arrived swiftly and took us to the hotel which is located very close... More

Niice and handy to Christchurch Airport, free shuttle at any time, good Restraunt on site and clean and comfy rooms, fine for one or two nights on late arrivals or early departures. Although the hotel is within walking distance of the Airport no aircraft noise can be heard and reception is prompt as usual in New Zealand very polite.

After a recent review for a November one night stay, which was quite disappointing, decided to review this hotel on a one night stay on our way back to Australia in December. On arrival we were directed to our room, we were assuming the room to be the same as on arrival to New Zealand, but we were pleasantly surprised.... More

Room 2.5 star. Bathroom OK, but no bath. No safe. No air con. Buffet dinner was OK. Hotel is convenient for airport, but there is nowhere to walk to in evening. Bar lounge is bit small for the size of hotel.

Our room was very disappointing and extremely hot, with no air conditioning. We had to open the window to try and let some air through but when we found a large cockroach in the room we decided to close it again. The room was shabby and uncomfortable. There is a pleasant bar area and a buffet style restaurant which was... More

I was through Christchurch last August and stayed Sudima Hotel and The Elms. Trust me - Sudima is hands down far better of the two. It's close proximity to the airport was key for me. I was able to secure a room for two nights and had an updated room this time. It was quite comfortable and clean with all... More

The hotel is within walking distance of the airport hotel but offers a courtesy coach if needed. Our room was a good size and comfortable. The restaurant provided an excellent dinner and breakfast. The swimming pool was very pleasant. Staff were welcoming and helpful. This is a good hotel to stay in before or after a flight.
