Christchurch motel accommodation

Sumner is surrounded on one side by the Port Hills, with many cliff top and rugged hill tracks offering spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, the Canterbury Plains and further to the Southern Alps – ideal for those who love to run, walk or mountain bike. On the other side of the village are the Sumner and Scarborough beaches, with safe swimming and excellent surf. The beaches and the Esplanade, as well as Taylor's Mistake, are all popular destinations for locals and visitors alike during the weekends.

Take time out at one of the trendy restaurants or cafés and enjoy a glass of wine and fabulous food. Browse through the many art galleries and shops, or simply sit and sip a coffee and watch the world go by in this laid-back beachfront village.

Head over the hill to Lyttelton and take a cruise on the harbour and see the rare Hector's dolphins. Drive along the Summit Road and look down over the city, or take a gondola ride to 500m and enjoy 360° views from Mt Cavendish over Pegasus Bay, Banks Peninsula and the Canterbury Plains. Spend the day in Christchurch exploring the beautiful Garden City, looking through the shops or visiting the many attractions that the city has to offer, and then return to the beach to spend the evening away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
