Le Petit Hotel was our first stop after a long international flight from the States. Bruce was very welcoming and informative. He quickly got us settled in our comfortable and spacious room, which was situated upstairs in the front (with a balcony). We immediately felt relaxed and able to unwind. This quaint bed & breakfast was intimate and furnished beautifully....

Pale yellow walls with soft green shutters and complimentary crushed stone driveway welcome you in to this small hotel/B&B on the beach at the edge of Christchurch, NZ. Inside the details are perfect. You could be in any number of small French hotels. Clara the Scottie dog welcomes you quietly and Bruce, the director, has thought of everything to make...

It is difficult to get accommodation in the Christchurch area but we found this gem in Sumner, about 30 mins outside the city. Really reasonable rates and beautifully appointed rooms in the French style. A reception room downstairs (grand piano in the corner) has coffee, tea and biscuits available and breakfast is served here which is croissants and an array...

Le Petit Hotel was not only beautiful, spacious, quiet, and quaint...but the keepers were over the top friendly and hospitable, and it quickly topped the charts to the BEST place I have ever had the pleasure of staying! Fancy hotels included. Located in Sumner, a fun and active little town outside of Christchurch right on the water...it is a place...

Fantastic place to stay in a great location overlooking Sumner beach and just a short walk to local shops and dining. Freshly baked croissant's for Breaky were a treat and our hosts looked after us all so well. Highly recommend for families with teenage children.

Christmas time is an extremely busy, even stressful, accommodation management time for Le Petit Hotel and so when we receive such compliments from appreciative guests, both Martine & I are truly grateful.

We stayed there 1 night during holidays. Very good place to stay. Pro: very professional but also friendly behaviour from owners. Excellent value for money, all inclusive (good French breakfast, fast free internet connection...). Room with sea view, very clean and nicely decorated. Cons: some traffic noise, but almost no traffic at night. It can be heard in the morning....

Martine and Bruce were warm and welcoming. They were always smiling and made us feel like family. The smell of fresh baked croissants and the sounds of friendly chitter chatter were more than relaxing. With regulars in the dining area it was refreshing to witness the bond they'd made over the years. Martine's authentic Parisian culture shined through her B&B....

We stayed at the Petit Hotel over New Year's after a month of driving and trekking across New Zealand. We just wanted somewhere relaxing to stay before flying back to the UK. I have to say we were not disappointed. The hotel is immaculately presented, calm and peaceful and a stone's throw from the beach and a clutch of good...

Finding a little oasis of France in NZ was great fun and the hotel is charming. Bruce made us very welcome. The room was nicely decorated and we liked the very French doors onto the balcony. The fact that the balcony overlooked the street did reduce it's appeal a little but it was lovely to have the doors open. It's...

Our guest - NoneyJ has commented on having a delicious Indian Sumner curry meal on their last night in Sumner while staying at Le Petit Hotel...it has to be said that Sumner as a seaside village is most fortunate in having a wide range of excellent cafe/restaurant businesses which just make a stay here while in Christchurch all the more...
