“Basic and Convenient”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2011

We stayed in a family room for one night at the start of our holiday. Conveniently located next to the airport with free shuttle. Standard hotel. Clean and had the basics. Nothing fancy but adequate for a one night stopover.

I had an unplanned extra night in Christchurch and the Sudima is a great spot (walking distance to Christchurch airport). The rooms are clean and comfortable and the hotel has all the necessary amenities.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2010

Stayed for just one night as friend had to be at the airport at crack o dawn for a 6am international flight. Our room was fine - clean and tidy. The staff at check in were helpful and friendly. Fairly ordinary service at checkout by an unfriendly lady.

The room cost $138NZ - booked on their website. This was the dearest accommodation of our Sth Is holiday. It is an expensive hotel for what you get.

The only other complain I have is the lack of a cooling system. Our room was sooo hot it was almost unbearable ... we had to open the window which then let in the road noise. I don't know if more expensive rooms have a/c, but I would ask for it if staying in summer.

The bonus is that the hotel is at most 5 mins from the aiport at they run a free 24 hr shuttle.

This place is right outside of Christchurch airport. We arrived after 11pm and waited only a few minutes for the free shuttle service to arrive to take us to the hotel. A very convenient service! You do need to carry your own bags to your room, and there are no elevators. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The room was spacious and clean, however I found the bed a bit too "bouncy" for my liking. Other than that it was quiet.

Breakfast is not included in the cost of the room, but there is a restaurant in the hotel with 3 breakfast options depending on how much you want to eat.

Another good thing was our rental car agency was willing to pick us up from the hotel since it was so close to the airport.

Overall, good value for money if you want to stay for a night before exploring the awesome South Island

We arrived very early in the morning at 1.30am to Christchurch so decided to stay close to the airport. This hotel is within walking distance so it's great, we took advantage for the shuttle they were there to pick us up within minutes. We were greeted by very polite staff. The room is fine for an over night stay, the only thing I didn't like was the fact that there was no air conditioning however we found this through our entire stay and can only assume that the rooms only have heaters due to it becoming very cold in the winter time. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much to the polite staff members.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2010

The hotel is located on the doorstep of Christchurch Airport - I just walked there rather than calling the free shuttle as I'd read other reviews that said how close it was. It took less than 10 minutes to walk there.

Check-in was nice and quick. Was given the option to upgrade to a refurbished room for an additional $25, but declined. The room I had was some walk from reception as this is a motel-type hotel with two stories and several blocks of rooms. The room was a good size, with two beds which seemed smaller than a double but larger than a single.

The room was quite old, for example the sink was cracked. However it was 100% clean and tidy, so wasn't a problem. Plenty of hot water in the shower.

Excellent cooked breakfast buffet, including lamb fry, which I love, and isn't seen on many menus these days. There was an outdoor pool in the middle of the complex, but didn't try it.

Overall, an average hotel, nice and clean, good for the airport, no complaints but not high luxury.

We arrived about 11pm with about 40k of luggage. We were given a room at the back on the top floor. Unfortunately we are in our 60s, my husband has had a knee replacement and there are NO elevators and absolutely NO help from the reception staff. THEN next morning .... yep, we had to carry it all down again. The room was clean and spacious, although the beds are not particfularly comfortable. Stay...but ask for a ground floor room.
