Not something that appeals to most people, especially travellers. But if your visiting Christchurch, you might want to reconsider and check into the former Addington Prison. This 1876 prison has been been transformed into a new hotel called Jailhouse Accommodation.
The prison was closed in 1999 but a few of the cells have been left exactly as they were, complete with prison art on the walls, bunk beds and the basic steel toilet.
Located at 388 Lincoln Road, about 10 minutes from central city, the Jailhouse provides cheap, clean and safe accommodation.
