Jailhouse Accommodation

338 Lincoln Rd, Christchurch, New Zealand, 8024 - View the map

Jailhouse Accommodation will provide you with the most memorable accommodation of your travels! Imagine sleeping in a historic jail cell, although rest assured it has been tastefully renovated and is much warmer and friendlier than in its years as the Addington Prison, from 1874 to 1999. You can have your mugshot taken and explore the historic solitary confinement cell. Now the jailhouse building has a new use, the local Addington area has become a hive of activity and boasts cool bars, theatre, sports and entertainment venues. You will still be close to the CBD to explore the gardens, museums, Quake City, Restart Mall and other Christchurch attractions. We have a room for everyone as our cells include dorms, singles, twin bunks, doubles and a family room with WiFi, free parking, shared bathrooms, kitchen, laundry facilities, TV areas and more.
