Sudima Lake Rotorua

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was tricky to find without GPS but well worth the search. Overlooking the lake, it is both picturesque and quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful. Dining area is large enough that bus tours do not overwhelm the space.

Loved how the hotel was near so many shops and there was even a grocery store. The staff are very friendly and provide great assistance.

The rooms were excellent condition, very clean and well maintained. The location is also good. Close restaurants & shopping malls. However just want out for the near by Sulphur lake, the smell might be welcome for most.

Too close to the pools that smell like rotten eggs. The rooms are not insulated so you can smell even with the air on. Laundry facility excellent!

This hotel was in a good location, but the sulfur smell was located everywhere in the hotel.

Clean, very comfortable and all of the amenities. It was perfectly located for our vacation. The staff was very friendly. We even added on another night.

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.

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.

Sudima Hotel was two blocks from airport bus stop, next to the lake, and only about 5 blocks from the Rotorua Bath House Museum or the I-Site. Staff was friendly, helpful. We did have a sticky lock, and they gave us a new room. Rooms are good sized, beds are comfy and clean. We ate at restaurant twice. Meal selections are a bit limited, but very tasty. We booked a tour to Wai-O-Tapu Geothermal Park, and we're picked up right in front of hotel. Pretty grounds and no road noise. They have Maori dinner and show offered right at hotel, for those who are interested.

The room was comfortable and the hotel was in a good location. We were only there for one night so I am unable to say more but in a nut shell I would stay there again.

Liked: being able to walk to town and thermal areas around lake; private spa pools (reservable for 30 minutes) Disliked: expensive internet that was very slow at peak times; small swimming pool; food

Very nice hotel right on Lake Rotorua. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and i-site.

The hotel was loud, we had to change rooms, there was no air conditioning, it was hot and right next to the sulfar lake so it was typical Rotorua, the smell of sulfur was thick in the air.

This hotel was a great value: nice, spacious room (we had a superior king with a balcony), located right on the lake in Rotorua. The only drawback was the noise outside our room, caused by tour buses (and the gaggles of groups) bustling around in the early a.m. However, since you're getting up early to sightsee anyway, not too big a deal. Some of the public areas need a bit of a facelift, as they seem rather 80s, but as the hotel is tidily kept, also not too big a deal.

The hotel needs a major updating and upgrading. Rooms were hot and no breeze. No A/c should be listed on web page. The Hangi dinner/concert was good and convenient. Towels were very old and dingy looking. Sink plug was stuck down. The star rating should be a 1 or 2 at the most!! I would not stay here again. I did talk to management--no compensation except an extra fan!

My boyfriend and I rented a car in Auckland to make a short two day trip to Rotorua. We didn't have a hotel booked ahead of time and booked a room at the Sudima Hotel at an internet cafe once in Rotorua. We got to the hotel a couple of hours later and had no problem checking in, in fact we got upgraded to a room with a king size bed. The room was clean and had a nice, big bath tub. There was also a spa outside our room that we didn't get to take advantage of.
