Here at Le Petit Hotel, we always work hard to provide our very best service, and sometimes despite our best efforts, the reviews received sometimes do not truly reflect our efforts. In this case we ensured that the black labrador dog travelling with our guests was supplied with cold water during each day and provided with some emotional company while it was short tethered throughout the heat of the day to our guests' 4x4. Le Petit Hotel has a Scottish Terrier in house and our establishment is certainly dog friendly accredited.

Friendly hosts and the breakfast croissants are delicious. The rooms are charming and quiet while being centrally located in the hip seaside village if Sumner.

Return customer - relaxing and comfortable stay

This is my second time staying at Le Petit Hotel while visiting family. The hotel has a great location and is really thoughtfully set up - from the fittings and decor, to the included breakfast (with freshly baked croissants!). The proprietors are friendly and helpful and the entire experience is reminiscent of a family European hotel or gîte. We’ll stay again!

Fabulous

Pros: Location and Friendliness
Cons: A few different breakfasts - we were there for 3 mornings and would have liked a variety in the days. the breakfast was great though
Location: Beach, Seagulls (loved them) , quiet
Great place to stay. A bit out of town but right on the beach. Absolutely loved it. The manager was very friendly and helpful. Would choose again if heading to Christchurch.

Lovely ambience

Pros: Nice combination of hotel-style amenities with European sensibilities and a personal touch.
Location: There is some noise from the busy street but this was no issue for us. We were very comfortable here.
The hotel was easy to find and the room was spacious and comfortable. The building is very well-built and maintained, stylish and tasteful. Excellent breakfast--loved the authentic croissants fresh from the oven. The location is excellent, with the lovely beach, good bars and restaurants and a cinema all within strolling distance.
