We had a great time at the Jailhouse. The staff were amazingly friendly, there was a lot of historical features and information on the old jail, and the facilities were top notch. Loved it! The room (we had a twin bunk) did feel like the jail cell it was, which was a bit creepy but well worth the experience. Staying in Addington was a good escape from the city's red zones as well, as Christchurch is still on the mend after earthquake damage.
