Given the shortage of hotel beds in Christchurch at the moment, you could do much worse than the Sudima, especially if you are just passing through for one or two nights.
The hotel is very close to the airport, either a short walk or complimentary pick-up. I found my garden-facing room surprisingly quiet given how close it is to the airport, but street-facing rooms would be more noisy. It is right next door to the Antarctic Centre, which is well worth a visit. Friendly staff add to the experience.
The room and bathroom were moderately sized and clean, but everything looked a bit tired and in need of an upgrade - especially the appliances. I would expect a premium room to have more than a small CRT television with hardly any channels. The lighting was also appalling, with only lamps or bulkhead lights in the main room - there was only one chair in the room where I could read comfortably at night. The bed was comfortable and I got a good night's sleep.More
