Sudima Christchurch Airport

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

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.

I have been staying at this hotel (although not always this management) since 1986 during ten trips to the ice. My first choice when I pass through NZ enroute to / from the ice.

Nice hotel at decent price within walking distance of the Airport with good restaurant

Very convenient, sunny dining in the courtyard, overall a nice experience, as airport hotels go

Reasonable hotel for business with good restaurant and bar. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Service is good. About 700m from the airport which is convenient and right next door to the International Antarctic Center which is worth a visit. However this hotel is not convenient to the more tourist parts of town and there are no restaurants or other attractions within walking distance.

We booked a one double bed room. The room was too small. We have never seen such a small room and there was no space to walk around. The bathroom was made of foggy glasses so it was weird because you can see and hear everything. But the hotel was very modern and clean. The staff was extremely friendly, and we did laundry. The free wireless service helped a lot since it was hard to find a hotel in new zealand with free wireless service. We booked another day with a queen bedroom and that was better but the same layout with the weird bathroom.
