“Its a hotel near airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

Arrived from KUL thru soon-to-be-ended airasia flight at 10.30pm. Has a flight to Queenstown the next day so we decided to book the Premium Family Room as 'we' consist of 4 adult and 2 child.The room was big enough for all of us with 2 queen size beds and 2 single beds. Choices on the telly was great but cant enjoy it much due to fatigueness. Excellent selection of complimentary coffee & tea. Toilet was clean and sufficient. The hotels' luggage room was very useful and the check out time is 10am.

Another best thing about the hotel is it just a quick 3minutes walk to the International Antarctic Centre- great place for the kids and the cafe has nice fish & chips.

The Sudima is a courtesy coach ride or a 5-6 minute walk from Christchurch International Terminal. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Ideal for early flights out of Christchurch. Just across the road is the Antarctic Centre. A must see if you are visiting Christchurch. The room we had was a tad on the small side but the bed was quite comfortable. We had a choice of a buffet dinner or a la carte. You were able to check out the buffet before making your decision which we thought was a good idea. We went with the buffet which we really enjoyed. We didn't have breakfast at the motel as we had an early flight. All in all it was an enjoyable overnight stay

Room Tip: Gound floor rooms have a patio with table and chairs

I booked the Sudima for its location right on the airport doorstep as I was arriving lateish for a very early flight the following morning. The rooms are clean and comfortable, perhaps at the same standard as a run of the mill motor inn. I found the air conditioner / heater in my room rattled a little and I couldn't really turn it off. Not enough of an issue for me to ask staff for assistance though. There was also quite a bit of plumbing noise from the other rooms so if you're a light sleeper and have to be up early you might find it difficult while listening to everyone else's showers and toilets.

My room rate included a voucher for a meal in the restaurant. I used it for dinner which was extremely underwhelming. After a long day travelling I was looking forward to a tasty meal, nothing fancy. I ordered the pasta of the day and the portion size was very large but the food was bland and to be honest I could have made it better myself at home. Bread was cold with a side dish of frozen butter. Didn't help.

Big ticks for service. Check in was quick, directions to my room very clear. Restaurant service also great. There is an express check out service and free shuttle to airport terminals available on demand 24 hrs. For the level of service and standard of rooms with a free meal thrown in it was good value. It's a typical airport hotel - a great place to rest your head while in transit and that's about it.

We usually stay in 4 or 5 star hotels, but there is nothing close to the airport. So we booked here. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was pleasant and clean; the restaurant nice and the food good. Staff very pleasant. The hotel is being upgraded to 4.5 stars. All in all a pleasant surprise.

I was so thankful that we had booked a room at Sudima as somewhere to sleep after our long day of transit. We arrived in Christchurch in the early hours of the morning and were picked up from the front of the airport within minutes of clearing customs by the courtesy shuttle bus. In honesty, we could have walked to the hotel (we could see it across the car park from the front of the airport), but the shuttle was so handy in transporting us and our luggage to the hotel.

Check-in was quick and friendly. It was a bit of a walk to our rooms which was located up-stairs - no lift made it a bit of a task lugging our bags up the stairs in a tired state. The rooms were old, but comfortable.

The on-demand shuttle dropped us back to the airport in the morning so that we could meet our rental car company. Great service!

I wish that we would have booked our last night in Christchurch here so we could take advantage of the shuttle back to the airport.
