Best airport stop

With a 1:50 a.m. arrival in Christchurch the Sudima was the obvious choice for the night prior to heading to our holiday house an hour out of town. I was most surprised to find myself in a new room which was positively perfect and I sure do hope the rest of the hotel is being upgraded to meet the new standard. We've stayed at the Sudima previously and know the service and staff are great. But the lovely new room was the icing on the cake this stay. The shuttle service is prompt and the drivers friendly. Check in staff helpful and also friendly. When passing through the hotel the following morning all staff I passed greeted me cheerily. Given I was in New Zealand I wouldn't have expected less!

Location is great. Check in was a bit slow. There is no lift to some rooms which is surprising for an airport hotel as most guest will have suitcases.

Excellent for the Travel Weary

I arrived at the hotel around 7:30AM after working an entire nightshirt and then flying into Christchurch from Hokitika. Needless to say, I was exhausted and was hoping to check in early. I went to the counter and was not surprised when they told me my room wasn't ready, with normal check in being in the afternoon. However, the staff told me to wait for an hour and they would have a room prepared for me to check in. I was very thankful that they were able to accommodate me. With its helpful staff and great location, I will definitely consider staying here again on my future trips to Christchurch.

Great hotel right by the airport

Stayed at the Sudima because it was within walking distance of the airport, but they provide 24 hour airport shuttle service which is really nice too. The room was very clean and comfortable, although a little chilly when first arriving. Dining area is nice, although their menu has a key to show which options were dairy-free, but then didn't actually have any dairy-free dishes on the menu. Staff was exceptionally friendly and courteous. All around good hotel!

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

The Willowbank Wildlife Reserve is about a 10 minute drive from the Christchurch airport. It's well worth checking out. Even saw some real life kiwi birds! If you don't have a car, you'll have to take either a taxi (~$25NZ) or the shuttle (~$30NZ). I would recommend the taxi unless you're the only person on the shuttle (the shuttle drops off several customers to exact locations so it could take longer to get there on the shuttle). Willowbank advertises a free return shuttle to the airport, but be aware that this is only included if you participate in their Maori experience.

Good if flying out from CHC

Rooms didnt have AC. Didnt realize that a basic amenity available at almost all the hotels listed on here, was missing at this particular Property. Front desk staff lacked knowledge of surroundings that is they gave us wrong info for rental car returns after we checked in late and wanted to get a head start in the early morning for flight out of CHC.

Straight off plane into hotel room

Stayed here due to proximity to airport and we were arriving into Christchurch on late night flight. Hotel was a 5 minute walk from the baggage carousel/customs area. Perfect! There is also a shuttle if you need it. However, for the price paid, the amenities werent that amazing. Room was well decked out though and there was a pool in the courtyard. Didnt hear any planes so well constructed.
