Stayed two nights over the weekend of my wedding...... firstly the night before with my bridesmaids and mother and then on the night of with my husband. We couldn't have asked for more. The room was perfect with two double bedrooms (each with bathrooms) as well as a stunning open plan kitchen / lounge / balcony area. It was the extras that really made our stay. Chris, Trish and Brenda really went above and beyond to ensure we were looked after. From the wine and Xmas mince pies on arrival to the kitchen which was pre stocked for breakfast!

The beds were really comfortable and were re-fitted the next morning whilst I was out surfing from singles to 2 x king beds. This was another extra as we had booked the apartments for 2 nights. The room was spruced up whilst I was out and another bottle of wine placed in for my husband and I. We were even given a late late check out of 3pm!

I'm a sumner local so was very excited to try out these apartments and I would strongly recommend them. It was just so special to be able to entertain my 12 family members over a casual dinner the night before and then to have four of us stay pre the wedding.

This is my first review where the service and accomodation has been flawless. Thank you to the team for helping to make our special day perfect.

This hotel was truly perfect.The hotel has everything one needs, the self service breakfast wasn't what I expected but actually it gave me the option to take it on to the roof and look out over the sea.
I really enjoyed my stay and I have already recommended it to many family and friend.

This accommodation is 10 out of 10 in every respect. Everything has been carefully thought of, from Chris' innovative method of "checking in"/"checking out", to the thoughtful and delicious goodies in the apartment on arrival (homemade muffins, fresh fruit salad in the fridge with yoghurts, containers of muesli, weetbix and cornflakes, a large bottle of good quality juice, 2 litre of milk, margarines/jams and fresh fruit and last but not least a bottle of wine and 2 bottles of beer!). We have stayed in some beautiful accommodation over the years but none that displayed this level of personal attention to detail. The presentation and standard of cleanliness simply cannot be faulted and the apartments are beautifully furnished. Chris and Roydon are extremely friendly and welcoming and it was a pleasure to talk with them about how they have created this lovely apartment complex. It is an absolute must to stay if you are in Christchurch and the beachside location just makes it that much nicer to be away from the hustle and bustle. Chris and Roydon you should be extremely proud of what you have created.

Room Tip: Any of the apartments as they are all beautiful

The name says it all! A real treat from start to finish. We have just had a great weekend stay in Sumner Re Treat and I hope it wont be our last.
The hosts Chris and Roydon have thought of everything and should be very proud of the wonderful facility they have created. We (two couples) stayed in a two bedroom two bathroom apartment which had everything we could wish for, and more. Modern, stylish, comfortable, affordable & very clean, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sumner Re Treat to others.

I traveled all over South Island last month and stayed at a lot of places. I will vote Sumner Re Treat at Sumner, Christchurch as my best stay. I rented a two bedroom two bathroom apartment and it was simply excellent. The apartment was spotless, the rooms were clean and the bathrooms and toilets outstanding. The kitchen was state of the art. We were met by the hostess Chris on arrival and you cannot find a better welcome. Chris and Roydon are excellent hosts. If you are looking for a self serviced apartment in Christchurch, look up Sumner Re Treat. It is excellent value for money. Thanks Chris and Roydon for an comfortable stay.
