“A quick stay over”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2013

After my complimentary transfer from the airport, I was checked in efficiently. My room number was 701, a nice spacious room. Tidy and clean. I didn't think there was a jug and tea available but then later found it in the wardrobe. I went to the bar for a nice calamari salad and a drink with dinner, service was polite and efficient. Later when organising my room service breakfast, Phil the F&B manager was extremely accommodating and for that I thank him. I left very very early, the transfer is very very convenient as it was far too cold for me to walk to airport.
Looking forward to my next stay.

The hotel is really close to the international airport, few hundreds of yards from it, you do not need taxy or bus. Nice room, good kitchen easy to arrive downtown with bus. I found price are little it high but this is a common problem all around New Zealand.

Stayed here for 2 nights / one night on arrival and one night before we left NZ. Located just minutes away from the international airport it is a welcomed overnight stay when arriving very late at night. A free shuttle can picks you pick up and drops you at airport anytime day or night - very handy for those early early morning starts. The room was comfortable, with all usual amenities. The hotel was undergoing renovation therefore the overall condition of the hotel will improve. However we didn't find issue with anything - bed was comfortable, shower/toilet clean and serviceable. We had free bottled water in our room and ample tea and coffee making facilities. We got a good deal on room rate but the usual price is a bit high given most guests don't stay long.

Sudima hotels are a chain of hotels mainly in New Zealand, primarily located in or near the major airports of Christchurch and Auckland. They also have hotels in Brisbane Australia and others located in Hamilton and Rotorua, New Zealand.
We stayed in the Sudima Hotel near the Christchurch airport as we had an early flight we needed to catch the next morning.
While the hotel is well run, clean and comfortable with friendly staff, we found it a rather sterile place and in my opinion way over priced. I don’t know how they get away with charging over $200 for what is basically a normal run of the mill hotel room. BUT, they are right next to the airport and that’s what you are really paying for.
However, all in all we were happy with our stay at the Christchurch Sudima and would probably rebook there again if we needed a quick trip to the airport.

Stayed here for the location.
I regret it.

Room was 200 dollars. This is way overpriced.

The hotel and rooms are dated. No wifi. Cold water tap didn't work. Old style shower bath.

Furniture is old. Bed way to soft for two people.

Things are still under construction. I think the camper can we will be staying in would be more comfortable.

Got woken up early by room service who went to the wrong room.

Can smell smoke from other guests across the hallway.

Would not stay here again.

We stayed here for one night after landing late in Christchurch and not wanting to proceed with onward travel until the next day. I do agree with previous reviews that it is in need of a refurbishment and the rooms are a bit bland, when we were there it was currently in the process of redevelopment and it looked like one side of the hotel was closed off and the pool was also closed. It is a bit expensive for what it is but it is convene toy very close the airport and the staff were indeed very friendly, the bar/lounge area was also very nice.

May be close to the airport, but not good value for money. Rooms are getting a bit tired. Bed was awful, far too soft,

And no free wifi, surely for what they charge there should be?

Check in and out was easy and quick, and staff are pleasant
