Warmly welcomed

Room and facilities overall were good, although a bit tired looking and the musty smell in the room was unpleasant especially on clothing which all needed to be washed again at home. Good central location. Room service which was excellent - the young man who served us was brilliant - need more like him! He also helped us with a channel problem.

great holiday

Very pleasant stay, bathroom a little dated but quite comfortable. Staff at front desk most helpful when we had a problem with the car, room very spacious, didn't eat at the hotel as it seemed a bit expensive. Within easy walking distance of restaurants.

Perfect Location. Fabulous view

Ideal location, across the road to Polynesian Spa. Great restaurant. Staff fabulous & extremely obliging. Rooms are very tired. We still enjoyed our stay. Sat in the restaurant & bar area overlooking Lake Rotorua, couldn't ask for more than that.

Great location.

The room was large and very clean. The staff were very friendly and when we had a problem they acted immediately. The location was fantastic with Lake Rotorua on your doorstep. Because of this (sulfur getting into the batteries) we had a problem with our in room safe but the manager came and fixed it straight away. We had a room at the far end of the hotel so Wifi wasn't very strong but greatly improved the closer to reception you got.

Shortstay

Although our stay was brief it was enjoyable. Easy to check in. Nice room with a great view. We look forward to returning later in the year when the weather is a little better and we can enjoy the surroundings more.

Great Value

We found the Sudima Hotel to be very good value, although its not the fanciest hotel, it had everything we needed, close to town, so we could walk everywhere. The pool and spa where great, the pool was just the right temperature for the time of year. My only gripe is the breakfast at $25 a head is way over priced, so we didnt eat at the hotel at all. but all the cafes and restaurants are within easy walking distance. I would absolutely stay again at the Sudima next time.

Budget getaway

Reception staff were great, however room was not clean, bathroom needed a good scrub and towels were not replaced - had to ask for them. Dining room staff were great, would have liked eg tomatoes for breakfast instead of the dreadful sausage. Management needs to do a good inspection, would not stay again!!!

Friendly helpful staff, great location

Stayed two nights. Short walk from everything. Right next to Polynesian spa. Hotel has bit of a dormitory feel, staff are always eager to help. Great value, but breakfast was a bit expensive and ordinary.

Good Value

Everything was fine. Room clean. Service good and friendly. Just know you are near a sulphur lake/spring and that the closer you are to the lake the stronger the smell will be. We stayed in the very back, a bit of a walk but worth it. Would return to the value. Overall very satisfied. People that complain about the smell should be ignored. It's sulphur spring! You have to expect this.
