Sudima Hotel Christchurch Airport
Ranked #17 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 3, 2013

The Sudima Hotel is a great place to stay before and after International travel, we stayed one night before and one night after our trip to the USA recently, The hotel is clean (but is a little dated) and comfortable. Having the added bonus of being right at the airport helps and they offer a free shuttle service 24hrs. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would recomend this hotel to family and friends and would stay there again.

Handy location to the airport. You could walk to it but after a long distance flight you may want to call the hotel for their shuttle. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. The staff were friendly and extended the 10am checkout since we had only arrived at midnight. Breakfast was a bit pricey but eating out in NZ is generally expensive.

Average hotel with poor customer service by the staff on the reception and the price for a night was much much higher than the service they provide. Restourant available on site, no grocery store nearby. Location is very very close to Airport and they pick/drop you from airport 24 hrs.

Room Tip: Most hotela provide airport pick up so no need to pay high price to stay close to airport.

After a fabulous holiday in the USA and excellent , well priced accommodation, we arrived back in NZ late in the evening and my friends partner had booked a room at the Sudima. The room was pricey, the furniture and decor dated, they wanted to charge $10 for wifi and $27 for a cooked breakfast. This was the most expensive and also the worst accommodation we stayed in on our holiday and I am so disappointed to say, that it was in NZ.

Room Tip: Try someplace else - there are other better and better priced hotels in close proximity to the airpo...

Dear Reviewer,
Thank you for your feedback following your recent stay with us. Our room charges are set dynamically, a bit like airline seats and influenced by factors such as supply and demand, days of the week and seasonality. Our current level of charges currently reflect the market conditions we are experiencing in Christchurch. Contrary to your claim, there are no better priced full service hotels available in close proximity to the airport.
Regards.

This hotel's location is the best one for the outsiders who visit Christchurch.The hotel is very near to the Air-port,just opposite of the hotel.The outside view of the hotel is not attractive,but the rooms are good enough to stay in.This hotel is of good value with some nice facilities.The breakfast buffet is nice one.The hotel gives free transport service to the air-port.

We stayed in this hotel at the beginning of an organized tour of NZ. It's location, a short walk from the airport is very handy and, if you call the hotel from the Info desk at Arrivals, a courtesy bus will comes to pick you up for the couple of minutes' drive to the hotel. There are local bus routes available to reach the city centre or the beach resort of Sumner. The hotel has been partially renovated but we stayed in an unrenovated Standard room on the ground floor. It opened directly on to the interior garden area and pool, which was great and avoided any noise from the airport nearby. The room and bathroom were a bit dated but absolutely fine with a kingsize bed, a small fridge, iron and ironing board plus more wardrobe and drawer storage than in many higher class hotels (where the space is taken up by fancy minibars and drawers of snacks that are vastly overpriced). The lack of a safe in the room was a disadvantage. A big plus was the guest laundry with coin operated washing machines and driers, cost NZ$2 per wash load and the same price to fully dry a load. We also found the NZ$10 charge for 24 hours Internet access quite reasonable (considerably cheaper than we'd had to pay in several hotels in Australia). Service was very good with all the staff working with a friendly and helpful attitude. This more than makes up for dated furnishings! We enjoyed our stay and hope renovations will be completed so that this hotel can receive the rating it deserves.

Room Tip: For a quiet stay it's very important to request a room facing in towards the pool and garden...
