Our stay at Sumner was super easy, we loved the location (fish/chips, coffee & beach all walking distance), cleanliness, towel warmers, leafy setting & the extra effort to find us a day space (just off the plane) made the trip so much more enjoyable

We had a very comfortable apartment. The motel is in the centre of town close to the seafront and all local bars and restaurants. I can't see us staying anywhere else when we next visit Sumner. The accommodation is highly suited for a longer stay.

Good Morning Steven Thank you very much for your kind and honest review. We both believe there is nothing more unwelcoming than a guest walking into a cold room, especially this time of year. Hope to see you again some time. Regards Roger and Kay
