Stayed at the Jailhouse last week for three nights in Christchurch. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and accomodating. They allowed me to check in early since I had a morning arrival which was greatly appreciated.
Rooms have very comfortable beds (they were apparently designed for athletes at some sporting event) and sheets/towels were provided free of charge. Showers were clean and never ran out of hot water. Kitchen was also clean and had ample fridge space. Cheap laundry and internet available - also good TV room. Was very quiet at night.
Building has a lot of character and is a memorable place to stay. Only down side was that it is a bit far from City Centre - you can walk it in about 15-20 minutes or take the bus (# 7 or 77) right outside the front door. The train station is close by - only about a 10-15 minute walk further from town.
Overall great value for the money - I would stay at the Jailhouse again and recommend to friends.More
