    Not such a punishment to stay at this jail!


    Our night at the Jailhouse...rocked. Really. There was an earthquake! But a place which has withstood everything Mother Nature could pitch for more than a century wasn't likely to fall down just because of a small trembler, and although we were anxious, we made it through unscathed and also unmolested by creepy guards, etc.

    Our room was fairly spacious, if utilitarian, but the common areas are bright and airy and there is a lovely space for late-night movies (there is a good supply of videos, particularly those shot in NZ) as well as a picnicking area at the entrance. You're on a main road with bus transport to the city center, and some good places to eat nearby.

    The showers are clean, and the kitchen well-supplied. Not bad for NZ $30 per night.

    Unique Quality: You can take your own prison photographs in the lobby, view several cells left intact when the Prisons Authority moved on, and even buy t-shirts and hoodies as souvenirs of your stay. And there's an espresso bar, too, something no doubt the inmates would have enjoyed.
