“Handy location to airport.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The location to the airport is great . Make sure to ask for a room in the newer part. The rooms are very sound proof which is great for a good nights sleep. The restaurant has good food and most nights you need to book for dinner.

The Sudima Hotel Christchurch is a great place for a stopover. The shuttle bus service could not be faulted with on demand service to the terminal & rental car depots. The food service is great as are all the staff members. Rooms are getting a little tired & the bar area could do with better seating but overall this is a nice place to stay on a stopover

last night we received a complimentary transfer from the airport around midnight to the Sudima. We were checked in quickly and easily, we were even offered help with our bags and a wake up call. Hotel was a little dated but room was presented well. I think we were room 832.
The two things that seemed the most urgent to address would be painting the ceiling and replacing the dated and off colour bedspread (underside)
Bed was comfortable, large and had minimal noise.
The shower was good early this morning and breakfast wasn't bad either $53 for 2adults to have full continental and hot buffet.
Complimentary transfer back to the airport, two happy travellers on their way :)
Thanks

Room Tip: 832 was fine for us. Although is closer to road than other rooms.

Great location just a couple of minutes from the airport terminal. Very helpful bellhops. Many of the rooms are a bit dated (and noisy via both the hall and the windows), but there is a newer section that is up-to-date and not noisy at all - request the new rooms if you can. Restaurant had good food for a hotel, but the staff had too many tables to cover.

Room Tip: Above ratings are for the rooms in the new wing ... if you are in the older section (most of the hot...

In need of a facelift but that would lift the $$$$. Staff were polite and friendly. From valet , room service , reception and even bar staff. Its a 1990 flashback. No lifts so be prepared for carrying your luggage up the stairs...

Dear Reviewer,
Thank you for your feedback following your recent stay with us. I agree with your assessment about parts of the hotel being somewhat dated and you will be interested to learn that the hotel is to commence a substantial redevelopment programme later in the year. This will be staged to minimise the impact to our guests. Thank you also for your comments about our hard working staff.
Regards,

A nice, neat clean hotel situated right next to the Airport. The complimentary pick up van reached within minutes of our contacting the hotel. The staff at the reception was nice and friendly. The room had a nice view of the open spaces. We enjoyed our stay.

Having arrived on the Coastal Pacific around 630pm, it was a short taxi drive from the station to the hotel. The hotel itself is located very close to the Christchurch Airport and there is a complimentary shuttle service that will take you there (lucky on the following morning as it was bucketing down!!) The room was well appointed with a desk, comfortable bed and small but manageable bathroom. Old CRT television but this did not concern us as we were only there for a short time. The front reception staff on the following morning were a little aloof but then it was early (630am). Would recommend for a short stay as a stop over and convenience to the airport. Bear in mind that there is not really any eateries around the area and so there is a very captive audience at the buffet/restaurant on site.
