Travel & Sumner’s Connectivity Options
If you wish to tour rural Christchurch, the hotel is the perfect base location for exploring the Port Hills and Peninsula roads. With the scenic Evans Pass road access to Lyttelton open again, hotel guests have two options to explore Banks Peninsular. Taking the Heathcote / Ferrymead road tunnel option, the tunnel exit roundabout leads onto the attractive drive through Rapaki, Governors Bay, over Gebbies Pass, onto Little River, and reaching the original historical French settlement of Akaroa in a little over 75 minutes in total from Le Petit Hotel. Hotel Management recommend a 2-3 day stay to take in the immediate countryside easily accessible from Le Petit Hotel.
Alternative Rural Travel
From Sumner, a drive north via local vineyards leads to Hanmer Springs and its hot pools experience. Or a little further on, whale watching at Kaikoura. Another easy day travel-option is to drive or take the Trans-Alpine train to Arthurs Pass. The full trip crosses the Southern Alps to Hokitika & Greymouth on the South Island’s West Coast. That return train trip takes a full day, returning to Christchurch around 6pm.

Media support is available for such occasions.
