Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

One of the best hotels I stayed in Rotorua. Great location within a walking distance from everything , you don't even need a car and they have heaps of car parks around the hotel. Good helpfull staff too. We stayed in superior lakeview room for $119 and it totally worth it. You have to book it by telephone though, they don't have lakeview rooms online.

Second visit and this hotel's standard rooms are clean, quiet, close to Polynesian spa and town and big.

No faults, it's not top end but it has lots going for it. Why stay anywhere else would be my suggestion. Hunt for good deals too, they come around often. Warm as too in winter!

Stayed for 2 nights in May for the Marathon. Although it is showing its age, the Sudima has very good amenities, is clean and the staff are friendly and efficient. Great location with plenty of parking and handy to the start of the Marathon plus all the eateries and supermarket. Would definitely stay here again.

You can't beat the location of this place for a couple of nights in Rota-Vegas. It's not the greatest or most luxurious hotel. It's not expensive either. It caters to huge coach parties which makes it a little impersonal. I was glad that we upgraded to a deluxe room. We had twin double beds for two of us - which after a few weeks of hostels was a real treat. The place smells - but you can't get away from it. It's the lake.... and it's next to the lake!! The views are at 90degrees from the good rooms - and the not so good rooms are hiding behind the main hotel building. We took them up on the Maori evening and it was fun. The food was good - but it was in a "conference" type room with about 20 tables. We were the only table that weren't on a coach trip - and the buffet wasn't easy to get to once the groups got involved!
The windows surrounds and bathrooms looked like they needed a good clean with a bleach solution. There were a fair few spiders and bugs around too - and the smell meant that the balcony wasn't really an option. But there is a lot to do in the town so it's a good place if you're just looking for a clean bed. We went to the spa next door both days so I didn't use the shower.. . didn't want to - there was a massive spider in it! Wifi is expensive.

Room Tip: Upgrade - it's not that much money you're saving and it's worth it!

Stayed here on business. The Sudima is showing its age. While it is close to the centre of town, and the Events Centre, it's rooms are jaded. The bed was pretty bouncy, which took a bit of getting used to. The ironing board didn't fold out properly but was still usable. The TV had Sky TV but limited channel range. In the first evening of my 3 night stay, suddenly the lights, and fan (no air conditioning) went off but thankfully the TV and iron remained on. After calling reception, full power was restored within 10 minutes and one of the staff knocked on my door to check that everything was ok. The bathroom was ok, with great shower pressure. The hotel seems to catering for tour parties (with tour bus noise in the mornings). Overall, I will look elsewhere next time.

In May we booked in to the Sudima Hotel for 1 night. We had a supermarket voucher with a special deal for our stay. We took or grandson aged 7 and we all loved it. Had a great room with balcony overlooking lake and just above the heated pool. We all loved it and would go back.

Room Tip: Room 2nd floor front of hotel overlooking lake
