“Business stay”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

The Sudima is well situated beside the Polynesian Spa in Rotorua and close to geysers and hot pools. The hotel itself is a bit tired and needs updating. It was fairly clean (my floor wasn't vacuumed as thoroughly as I would have liked). The food in the hotel restaurant was lovely and the service very good. My colleague and I enjoyed three dinners and three breakfasts there and I recommend that dining in is worth it. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times.

Stayed 3 nights, excellent location. Right next door to Polynesian Spa, close to thermal activities of the area. Only an hour or so from Matamata (Hobbiton).
Staff excellent, great Maori concert and hangi.

I stayed here for 2 nights while on business in Rotorua, thoroughly enjoyed my experience. Staff were friendly. Rooms were cleaned and serviced well. Favourite part was relaxing in the Spa in the Pool Complex at the end of day and being able to see the night sky.

Very good location in Rotorua. next to the lake. Some of the lake side rooms do not have air-conditioners ( yet). they are upgrading the rooms though. nice touch to put a welcome tray of goodies in the room. it has a swimming pool. It's really across the road from the world famous Polynesian Spa. You could walk for some nice shopping and food options from here. The reception desk staff was very friendly and efficient. gave us insight into various activities. Many activities like Duck tours etc. have a pick up point from this hotel. The activity desk also subtly dissuaded us from going some " unknown" spa, saying "they were not sure of the place etc". very professional yet personal.

Room Tip: Pl check : some lake side rooms DO NOT have air conditioners. and road facing rooms can be a bit noi...

We stayed 2 nights and went as a family. This hotel has great specials on their website. We got the Family Bonanza Deal, which includes family cooked breakfast, $5 for kids meals & 10% of some attractions. I was very surprised on how many family's where booked in this hotel. Our kids just loved the heated swimming pool they swam all day & night as it closes at 10 pm. We found that it could have been just a little hotter. Our room was big and clean we loved it. The staff were amazing they where always eager to please. We really enjoyed our breakfast, we decided to go to breakfast late and found they where fully booked but it did not take long for us to be seated and the food was lovely and fresh.
This hotel does have a lot of tour buses, I loved the hustle and bustle of watching people getting on with their lives. My husband and I have agreed that we will be back. We have stayed at a few Hotels & Motels in Rotorua and the Sudima has been the best so far.

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!
