As Le Petit Hotel’s Scottish Terrier , it’s a while since I’ve been in touch with the wider world…& much has happened in both Sumner and Christchurch . I’ve grown up fast and the earthquakes are supposedly behind us, the experts say, but I am still anxious when I hear strange noises. I’m now 9 years old, and my black overcoat is showing some grey hair now!
I’m still performing my hotel guest welcoming routine…racing to reach the front door before Bruce, after the door intercom phone rings, so I can see the new guests first. I really live for my meet & greet job.
Le Petit Hotel accommodation provides boutique French B & B lodgings for all travellers, both domestic and international. The property is located by the beach in Sumner; the premier seaside suburb of Christchurch.
Unlike most AirBnB properties, managers – Martine and Bruce are on-site 24/7 and are focused on providing genuine hospitality to all guests. However the privacy of individuals is very much respected when required . Both short & long stay guests are most welcome at Le Petit Hotel’s unique retreat from the city bustle.
The daily room rate includes a served French breakfast and the hotel has free high speed data/WiFi services throughout the complex. The en-suite accommodation rooms are most suitable for 2 adults.

For all communications with the Hon. Consul, it is necessary to initially telephone Martine Marshall-Durieux – 03 326 66 76, to make a suitable appointment.
The Consular Agency Office is closed during weekends and public holidays, except for emergencies.
The office can easily be reached via the Metro Bus service, from the Central City bus exchange. The “purple” bus route begins at the airport, travels through the city-centre via the bus exchange, and then continues on to Sumner. The bus timetable is both frequent and regular, and is available on-line.
