Quiet Location

Cons: See above.
We were very pleased with our choice of accommodation during our recent weekend in Sumner. A delightful spot, centrally located so close to all amenities. Well appointed modern apartment, super clean and comfortable and the owners were lovely. The only item not quite to our liking were the insufficiently sprung beds.

Warm & welcoming & convenient accommodation!

Thank you to Roger & Kay for their genuinely warm welcome to us at Summer Bay Motel & Apartments, where we spent 4 days. It was a memorable time for us. We appreciated Roger's helpful & interesting conversations with us about Christchurch. We had some beautiful long bay walks & visited some of the excellent cafes & restaurants close by, particularly Indian Summer. We took the excellent guided bus tour around Christchurch city, learning of the earthquake devastation & ongoing reconstruction. We visited historic Akaroa on Banks Peninsula, a spectacularly 90 minute scenic drive with 2 extinct volcanoes, & a charming French inspired village with Harbourside cafes & shops. We discovered the amazing & beautiful mid Canterbury region on our drive to Lake Tekapoa after leaving the gem township of Sumner Bay. Good to know you've chosen the perfect accomodation at Sumber Bay Motel & Apartmemts!

Great location out of town.

Stayed here before flying out of Christchurch, very nice location. Comfortable room. About 30min from the Airport. Plenty to explore for longer stays. Would definitely go back.
