This is a small B & B operation with a delightful French accent. The appointments, rooms and service are excellent and in a city that is in recovery mode from the recent earthquakes it was a delightful place to stay. Le Petit is located in Sumner on a main street and one street back from the Pacific coast. It is... More

Stayed here two nights in February. Great location close to beach shops and restaurants and only 20 minutes drive into Christchurch. Bruce and Martine were good hosts. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable with very tasteful french furniture. Breakfast was good and lots of it served in a nice loung/dining area. We all enjoyed our stay here and would... More

A beautiful room with a comfy bed and plenty of room for suitcases with space to relax, a good shower to cap off this great place. The breakfast was nice and the home made croissants yummy. Good location over the road from the beach tho quiet of a night to give a good nights sleep.

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely place in Sumner. It is beautifully maintained and quite comfortable. Bruce and Martine are delightful hosts. It is a stone's throw from the beach and a nice walk into the town for restaurants. It is a pretty community coming back from the devastating destruction of the earthquakes. Nice breakfast and pleasant conversation!

Le Petit Hotel has lovely furniture, beautiful (very clean) bathrooms, and a great breakfast complete with croissants. It is in the cute suburb of Sumner (hit hard by the earthquakes a few years ago but doing OK), and is only a couple of blocks from the beach. Head there for a nice stroll and watch the gulls cracking open pipis... More

We stayed at the Le Petit Hotel for only one night, but after our visit we wished we could have stayed longer. This B&B is the quintessential B&B - nice location, perfect rooms, excellent hosts, and great breakfast. Everything you could ask for. We both highly recommend this B&B.

A very sweet, boutique hotel with a lot of character and excellent service. The hotel is small, in an excellent position across the road from the beach, and is managed with a lot of love. Highly recommended.

This was a fantastic 2-night stay in Sumner (with an easy drive to Akaroa). Hosts Bruce & Maxine went out of their way to assure my comfort. My room was spotless and neat, and came with a view of the Esplanade and ocean. The bed was comfy, the room was ultra-clean, and the giant breakfast croissants made my day each... More
