Room was perfect, comfy bed and pillows, French windows, great books on shelves. It was very good conversing with Bruce at a fine breakfast with real strong coffee. Many thanks for everything. (Now filling up the minimum word thing) ... all the best. Graham

We stayed here a couple of nights. It is quaint B&B, very much in the style of provincial France. Our host, Bruce, was very welcoming, making sure that everything was to our liking. Our room was decorated with period style furniture. It was heated by oil heating banks. It was very comfortable and had a clean modern bathroom. As others...

Le Petit Hotel is a cute wee find over in Sumner. The name tells you a lot. It has 6 suites available, with very personal service, and has a thoroughly French theme from the furniture to the décor and room amenities. The hosts are very welcoming and work hard to see that you are feeling taken care of. Bathrooms at...

We stayed at Le petit hotel for only 1 night but really wished we could have stayed longer or come back. This B&B style hotel is just a bit outside of the center of Christchurch on the coast. Just across the road is a nice beach with a handful of restaurants. There is also plenty of shops and other restaurants...

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.
