“Convenient Airport Hotel”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Stayed in the Sudima, Christchurch for one night after travelling to New Zealand from Sydney Australia. We arrived quite late in the evening. Check in was prompt and smooth; we were given an excellent room which appeared to be newly refurbished. Huge bed, good clean room and bathroom.
Took breakfast the following morning, very helpful and pleasant staff - choice of breakfasts, therefore you got what you paid for.
Helpful Airport transfers - they took us back to the Airport the following morning to collect our hire car; although the Airport was certainly close enough to walk.
Lots of parking close to the hotel.
I had e-mailed earlier to check on the car collection and whether we could get transport, the person responding to my e-mail was prompt and accurate in the information provided, she gave me confidence that all would be well - and it was.
A great beginning to a wonderful trip to New Zealand.

A hotel for convenience when picking up the rental car the next day. Rooms itself are quite clean, although my room didn't have a fridge and I woke up in the middle of the night very thirsty.

Definitely a hotel for convenience and ease to and from the airport and nothing more.

We stayed here for two nights before picking up our motor home at the Britz rental depot, which is a 5 minute walk away. The hotel is only about 700 meters from the airport and we walked it, although they do have free transport available. We had been told before we arrived that they were doing some refurbishment, and as a result upgraded us, which was very good of them. The room was more than adequate for our stay, although if we had been in Christchurch for a longer period we would probably have gone to another hotel nearer the city.We had a meal in the restaurant on our last night, which was very good. We did have to wait quite some time for our food, but it was worth the wait, and anyway we were on holiday, so what's the point in rushing. The only strange thing was that I had to teach the barmaid how to make a Dry Martini and lemonade.
I recommend this hotel as a stop over before either flying out of NZ or moving on.

We stayed one night at the Sudima Hotel Christchurch simply because of it's closeness to the airport..................a 2 minute car ride or 5 minute walk. Great for our early flight. We took advantage of the free shuttle sevice from the hotel.
Actually I had no complaints. Sure the hotel was a little dated but our room was clean, roomy and comfortable. We were however upgraded on arrival and had an refurbished room. I was surprised how quiet the room was too, bearing in mind how close the hotel is to the airport.
We ate from the room service menu and found the food appetising and well priced.
Only negative......no free WiFi in the room.
Others have commented on the cost of this hotel. Perhaps we were lucky because we only paid $135AUD through an airline company. I thought this was highly reasonable considering it's airport location. Very good stay

We stayed here on the first and last day of our trip to New Zealand.

It is a short 2 min drive from the airport which you can either do via free shuttle or hire car. The hotel car plenty of parking for hire cars You could even walk from the airport if you wanted to and didn't have much luggage as its only about 750 meters.

The hotel is generally dated and in a need of a refresh, however its certainly OK for a one night stay with the rooms being clean and bathroom a decent size with a bath. The internet rates are very reasonable at $10 for multiple devices.

Staff were very friendly and helpful at reception and restaurant. We found the breakfast a little expensive for what you get, however the food was generally good so nothing really to complain about.

The room we stayed in did not have aircon, however the external doors and windows opened for fresh air.

I would certainly not stay here for a vacation in Christchurch as its too far from the city center, however its a very good location when needing an airport hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floors were quieter.

We chose this hotel because it is right next door to Christchurch airport and the Britz depot. The public rooms were ok but the bedroom was a bit drab and in need of refurbishment. It seems that some renovation work has started as the view from our bedroom was over a courtyard which contained a drained swimming pool and building site. It looked as if the rooms on two sides of the courtyard are being "done up".
We ate dinner in the restaurant and the food was good.

We stayed here as we had a 7am flight the next morning. Being 2 mins from the terminal and having a 24-hour free shuttle was convenient. The hotel is drab and needs updating. It's unacceptable not to have wifi in the rooms (only in the lobby) in this day and age.

We didn't eat in the hotel but the restaurant was crowded.
