location and service was excellent. All we needed in the hotel was there except maybe milk, shampoo and body lotion not provided during our stay. and the queen bed right on the wall was not a good choice. too difficult to get down from the bed and go to the toilet and the tv was mounted low.

We were thrilled with our stay at the Sudima, Christchurch Airport location. Very convenient with a 24 hour shuttle and check in available. Could not ask for anything more from an Airport Hotel. We will return.

The location of this hotel is simply fabulous. Do splurge for a view of Mount Cook if you can as waking up to the sight of the mountain is truly spectacular. The rooms are basic but good. The dining room also has a fabulous view and the buffet was surprisingly ( in light of previous negative reviews) ...

This province on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island is also home to Christchurch, the island’s largest and most cosmopolitan city. Whether you want a holiday infused with culture, a beach- and sun-filled getaway, or a chance to commune on a mountain peak, you can do it all in Canterbury.
Canterbury is a big place, so you will need to choose carefully when deciding how to fill your holiday time. The region is filled with unique and fascinating sights. Christchurch can offer you museums – like the Arts Centre and Canterbury Museum– as well as botanical gardens, and plenty of great nightlife.
If you want some relaxing down time, head to Hanmer Springs, a small spa resort known for is natural hot springs and great hiking. When the wild starts calling your name, it’s time to set off for Arthur’s Pass National Park, one of the most popular natural parks on the island.

Canterbury is such a large region that your transportation options will really depend on your schedule. Anyone who needs to cross an ocean to get to Canterbury will likely go through Christchurch International Airport.
