Coolest place that I ever stayed in Christchurch!
With a great idea of turning a jail into a BBH, I think Jailhouse has stand out among others. The room is really clean with comfortable beds. Kitchen is well equipped. Each room has their own place to store the food. The staffs are friendly and polite. Free WIFI (one hour). There are also historic art piece (originals done by an inmate in the jail) can be seen in the special room. Tools/equipments which were used in jail are well displayed.
Overall, it's well-maintained, clean and comfortable. If you are planing to pay a visit to Christchurch, make sure you give yourself a few nights in this incredible Jailhouse. Highly recommended accommodation in the town!
