Recent guest reviews

Great location near airport. 24-hour service desk and shuttle. Modern. Nice!

Location and that they offer complimentary bicycles during your stay which is unique.

excellent and convenient hotel. Airport shuttles 24 hours a day.

Great location walking distance to airport. Room was on 2nd floor and when I asked a staff member if there was a lift he said no and walked off. Thought he may have offered assistance getting 2 suitcaes up the stairs. New restaurants and shops next to the hotel are a bonus. Nice stay, does the job for a one night stay before early morning flight.

Nice and clean hotel. Location is next door (5 min walking) from the airport.

This hotel was literally across the street from the terminal. Perfect for a late arrival and early departure the next morning. We got upgraded which was a very nice surprise. The staff and facilities were excellent.

Friendly, helpful staff. Nice, clean room. A little overpriced for what you get, but close proximity to airport is very useful.

The hotel was within 5 minutes walking distance of the airport terminal and within a 2 minute walking distance of the International Antarctic Centre.It's the perfect place to stay your final night in Christchurch before a flight out,

Overall, this is very nice hotel close to the airport with several restaurants and supermarket within walking distance. It is also near the bus stop to downtown Christchurch. The staff was wonderful and they were able to accommodate us in unforeseen circumstances. The rooms are clean and decent in its comfort. They even have laundry facilities.

Great stay minor quibble at check in and lines as a group was checking in and there was only two receptionists attending. But other than that excellent facility and perfect for catching a flight. The airport shuttle - can easily walk 3m if no bags - runs on demand round the clock was great service.

The hotel was a five minute walk to the airport so it made for an easy stay the night before an early flight. Hotel was very clean and inviting. Room was nice with a small refrigerator. It didn't have a microwave which we had gotten used to in all of our other hotels while vacationing in New Zealand, but the kitchen was open and the chef gladly heated up some leftovers we had which was very nice.

Easy place to stay before or after a long flight from CHC. Comfortable rooms and friendly staff

Soooo convenient to the airport, you can walk! The hotel is undergoing a renovation so things are a little disjointed but will be great - highly recommend!

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!

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.

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!

Very helpful staff, clean rooms, convenient to airport.

pick up quickly though in 11:50PM,the staff is frendily,the location is perfert for people who arrive the airport at night.

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.
