Very nice B&B in a great location on the beach in Sumner. There are plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance and a wonderful place to stay for a walk along the beach. The highlight was definitely breakfast with fresh homemade croissants! Would highly recommend if you want to stay a little outside of the CBD.

Lovely room with a view, friendly hosts and cute dog! The breakfast was excellent with tasty muesli and fresh croissants. Great location, a few minutes walk from restaurants in Sumner, near the bus stop to Christchurch central.

I chose this hotel because of its location - on the coast but only a short bus ride from Christchurch and because of the French influence. I'm so glad I did as it was the perfect place to relax and recover from jet-lag. Sumner is in a beautiful setting with lovely walks along the beach and some excellent places to... More

Everything was clean and very well-presented, with a French theme. Location is a short walk from Sumner restaurants and hosts are happy to provide recommendations. One minor point is that there is no where to put bath products while showering so the bathroom floor gets a bit wet. Tea and coffee is available at any time in the communal lounge... More

Hi MindiD, Many thanks for taking the time to review us. We note your comment regarding tea & coffee in the rooms. Because we are not a motel type operation and given the room furnishings we do prefer for guests to make use of the day lounge when possible. However we do have tea and coffee sets available for the... More

Spent the first 4 nights of our trip here, a perfect location to recover from jet lag. Excellent hosts who were friendly and hospitable, lovely room and a fantastic breakfast. Bruce even got up early on our last day to provide breakfast before our early airport shuttle pickup. Sumner itself is a lovely spot, great beach and lovely restaurants. Christchurch... More

Le Petit Hotel was recommended by a friend so we booked for three nights recently. All his recommendations were spot on; quiet, classy, great location, fabulous breakfast (included in the price ) and very comfortable rooms. To top it off, our Hosts, Bruce and Martine were very helpful, charming and great to engage with.

This is a fantastic little hotel - in a beautiful setting by a beach, peaceful, characterful, comfortable and lovely hosts. Such a relief to arrive there after a long journey from London. Delicious home made croissants too! I would highly recommend it.

Unfortunately we just had one evening to spend at Le Petit Hotel. We really enjoyed our stay in a clean and tastefully decorated room with sea views. The highlight was breakfast and briefly chatting with the lovely host over the home-cooked croissant.
