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 with Martine and Bruce. Sumner is a cute little beach town with good restaurants and good coffee. One thing to note, however, is that it is not close to the airport, so it's important to rent a car or anticipate an expensive taxi fare or a long bus ride.
We had to go back through Christchurch on our way from South Island to North Island and we chose to stay here again, and due to adverse weather, had to ask if they could accommodate us a day early. Bruce and Martine graciously arranged for us to have a room for an additional night at the last minute.
I can't recommend this hotel enough - we never wanted to leave!
Thank Martina

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
