We stayed here on our first night in New Zeland and loved this place! The rooms are beautiful, very romantic and classy. Furnishings and fixtures are beautiful. The breakfast is delightful with freshly made coffee and tea and fresh-baked croissants. We really enjoyed our stay

Dear SquirrelGirl13, What a fascinating cover name. Martine & I really appreciate your review of Le Petit Hotel, and we are happy that Sumner created some good memories. Like many cities around the world, Christchurch has a privately run coach shuttle service which runs 24/7 between the Christchurch International & Domestic airport terminals and the Central City. This service also extends out to the suburbs like Sumner and it is another option for inbound or departing travellers. The service can be booked on line at www.supershuttle.co.nz and the price is very reasonable at approx NZ$60.00 for 2 people. I totally agree that the bus is a long ride albeit at little cost, however if you have the time to spare it does give you some insight into some of the City's suburbs , and a brief look at the Central City including the new bus exchange. Martine & I sincerely wish you safe happy travels going forward. Kindest regards Bruce

Stayed one night this week, and was completely enthralled with the accommodation, quality of room and appointments. Grand hospitality from the hosts, Martine and Bruce, who are most congenial, well traveled and very helpful people. Truly a delightful oasis in Sumner.,
