Plane Spotting Christchurch

The Sudima Hotel Christchurch
This hotel is situated opposite both the domestic and international terminals and is just a short walk across the car park. There are no actual views from the rooms available, however the hotel is close to the Royal New Zealand Air Force Area and the US Antarctic facility where you should see a Hercules or two. Also within walking distance is the Air New Zealand maintenance area.
Location: ** Very convenient being only a short walk from the terminal building.
Spotting: ** No views from the rooms. The terminal building offers a viewing deck from where all movements can be logged.
Photos: ** Again, not possible from the rooms. Use the viewing deck for photos.
Value: *** This hotel is good value for money. A twin room starts from approximately £59. This price does not include breakfast.
Book:   This hotel is available through the AGODA website

    There is no longer a roof top viewing deck at Christchurch Airport and the viewing area and childrens play ground area on the second floor over looking the tarmac is also gone as part of the redevelopment of the airport.

    If you go to Avonhead road via Grays rd, you will see any arrival and departure really good.

    staying at a hotel called THE JUICY SNOOZE at the moment in room 58, you can see see all departures but you would need SBS or FR24, internet is free, the rooms are basic but nice and clean, there is no restaurant in the hotel but there is a retail park 2 minutes walk away with KFC, mcdonalds, Chinese and indian restaurants and also a big supermarket for your drinks and snacks. this hotel is about 200m away from the sudima hotel but a lot cheaper and would probably give the same views, ive hired a car here because there are some great viewing points around the airport perimeter where aircraft taxi right past you, I know this hotel is not on the list but its as good as the sudima.
