Sudima Hotel Christchurch Airport

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Arrived in this hotel after 11 nights in a campervan touring New Zealand. Was delighted with a comfortable bed and a hot shower. Reception checked us in early. The room was grand, nothing special but perfect for a one nighter

We had lunch in the restaurant. The food was not good, I had soup and curry. Both were tasteless but I just wanted to fill up before a nap.

Best thing about this hotel is its proximity to the airport. The hotel have a 24hr courtesy shuttle which is awesome for an early flight.

We booked this hotel as it was close to the airport and we had to pick up our hire care the next morning. We enjoyed our stay- they picked us up with our luggage from the airport and they had 24hr meals available. We sat down in the lounge area next to a lovely fire place and had snacks and drinks. Staff were friendly and helpful. Everything in the room was comfortable and they had heating throughout the building! We would stay in this hotel again!

Booked this hotel because it was really close to the airport (less than 5 min walk) as we flew in after midnight. Check in was fast, the room was basic but clean. Looks like a motel not a hotel. My only complaint was the noise. Not noise from being so close to the airport, as the planes could not be heard at all, but noise because the walls seems to be made from tissue paper. Early in the morning I could hear a women in the next room coughing. She must have been quite sick as she kept at it. I could also hear the comings and goings of people in the hall way and on the floor above. As for the price, it was quite costly for what it was but I guess thats what you pay for convenience.

Wotif checked us into the Sudima and it proved to be a perfect fit for a last night in town prior to flying back home to Australia. Close to the airport, good comfortable room, good meal and bar facilities and attentive staff. Quiet as well and the regular shuttle to the airport was appreciated at 0600 in the drizzly rain. Ticked all of our boxes and would be happy to return.

Stayed over at the Sudima for a night after our 11-hour long flight that got in really late before catching our onward flight to Wellington the next morning. Followed the instructions on their website and called for the free shuttle service upon landing. Shuttle was already waiting in the pick-up area as there were other guests waiting to be transported to the hotel as well. Barely took 2 mins to reach the hotel though. Very busy hotel, even flight attendants from our flight were staying here as it really is the closest place to put up the night near Christchurch airport.

We booked a Standard Room and asked for 3 beds as there were 3 of us. Place was a little dingy-looking with dim lights in the hallways. The hallways took some maneuvering through, felt like we were in a maze at one point. Gotta manage your own baggage to your room, so good to request for a room on the ground floor.

The room itself was OK, big enough for the 3 of us and not at all cramped up even after placing all 6 of our bags in the room. Beds were so-so, a little too soft and squishy for my liking but manageable for a night's stay. Bathroom was clean but very basic and old amenities. However, the main thing we needed - hot water - was in abundance. Room also had a few sachets of hot chocolate, tea and biscuits which were nice to have after a shower before going off to bed. The only negative thing was that the room did not have air-conditioning or even a fan, which I found a little difficult getting used to as it got stuffy in the beginning but soon came to realize that this is the case in most places around NZ. Although we were so close to the airport, couldn't hear the planes so all-in-all a good night's rest.

Did not have breakfast in the hotel as we needed to make our morning flight. Check out was fast and before we knew it we were back at the airport. Overall, adequate if you just need to catch up on some sleep between flights.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ground floor if you have a lot of luggage as you need to get your own luggage...

This hotel is perfectly fine for a night. My bed was comfortable, the bathroom nothing flash but fine, and service great. We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and both were fine. Service was great. I had a room facing the road and heard no road noise at all.

Would be happy to stay again.

This suited us for one night, as it was walkable to the airport and the Marathon start-line.
Overall the experience was fairly average, the inward facing room was quiet, heard no traffic and barely heard any planes, but the bar was ordinary and the restaurant again pretty ordinary.
If you don't expect too much then the location could be the winner for you. They did offer a late check out to 11:30am on Sunday morning at no charge, which was good.
