Managed Isolation 14 day stay
I felt I just needed to express my gratitude to all the team at the Sudima Hotel from 23 July-6 Aug.This wasn’t an experience I was looking forward to .I have to say the professionalism,helpfulness,kindness and efficiency from the nurses,wellness teams,defence personnel ,reception staff ,cleaners and cooks was faultless.Although they were never closer than 2 metres from you they treated you with respect and always a pleasant manner.Even the barista coffee was a hit to someone sitting alone in a room.The food was very good for bulk cooking .The daily newsletters and menus were welcomed and enjoyed.The final touch on the second last day was a bag of pineapple lumps with a sticker saying ‘Your Awesome’ and congratulations on reaching Day 12 and you are almost there!!!!The policewoman that cut off my blueband as I was released even helped me to my escape vehicle with all my luggage!!!!....a great experience considering I was in isolation and I can’t thank you enough for me maintaining my sanity over the 2 weeks.Please pass my thanks on to all staff working over this time.Margot Gazeley (Nelson) …
To the staff and managers of the Sudima Hotel, at the airport in Christchurch. As a 'guest' in your beautiful hotel, for the last twelve days, (March 14th - 18th 2021 ). I just wanted to express my gratitude for the kindness that I have received whilst staying here. The staff have all been wonderful and the room itself is has been extremely comfortable. I have wanted for nothing. I have felt very safe here and the Wellness team has been a large part of that. They have all been most kind and very professional. The meals have been outstanding and I have not had one complaint. To have a passionfruit cheesecake, on my first night, was a wonderful re-introduction to New Zealand. My 'treat' for each day, has been a mocha, delivered, to my room, by your team. I have enjoyed them all. I live in Canada and have been coming back to New Zealand, every year, for over fifty years. This year has been a bit of a challenge getting here, but perseverance has paid off. I come to visit with my 97 year old mother, who is, sad to say, in failing health. I am hoping to spend some quality time with her before she dies. Thank you for allowing the Government the use of your lovely hotel for us returning ex-pats to quarantine in. It is much appreciated. I will certainly recommend you to anyone that is looking for accommodation in Christchurch, in the future. Kind regards, Andrea Burke, Room 1220. …
Stay with managed isolation
Not a new hotel but well maintained and very clean. Rooms are of good size with a balcony to enjoy the fresh air. Due to COVID isolation our meals are provided by the hotel kitchen. The quality is good to very very good - portion size is generous. The kitchen also manages to bring a lot of variety to the menu. The staff are really friendly and helpful. As an Aucklander I was disappointed not to stay in a hotel close to home. I am now thankful I was sent to this hotel - big room, balcony, great food, friendly staff - well worth the hassle of the extra flight! 4 points for the sleep quality - but this will apply to all hotels this convenient to the airport.
Great hotel for managed isolation
We have been staying at this hotel for our 14 days managed isolation after returning to NZ. Although we were initially disappointed about being allocated to Christchurch, we are very happy here. We have has awesome meals, a great outdoor area that we are free to go out to any time during the day, and awesome service as well. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
