Welcome to the multi award winning Old Countryhouse in Christchurch - accommodation created by travellers for travellers.

It is a great place to base yourself for a stay in Christchurch. We recommend at least 3 nights to soak up the vibrant and arty vibe of our city and to explore the beaches, coastal walkways and attractions. Take the time to rest, relax and rejuvenate with us during your journey around the world or New Zealand.

We are a small operation with plenty of space and a family atmosphere. Walkthrough the garden gate and you will be greeted by tranquil gardens and winding paths leading to our beautiful colonial villas. Each house has been lovingly restored and refurbished to provide you with comfortable budget accommodation.

Pop across the road to buy takeaways or food to cook a meal in our large well equipped kitchens. Or if you want to eat out, there are excellent cafes and restaurants within 10 minutes walk and we are only 1500m from Cathedral Square in the heart of Christchurch's shopping and restaurant district. Walk along flat tree-lined suburban streets past the picturesque Latimer Square or catch a public bus from outside our door. If you have a car, there is plenty of room to park outside the hostel for free. We also provide secure onsite cycle parking.

Reception hours are between 9am and 4pm.
We are pleased that we can accommodate guests arriving outside these reception hours. Please advise your arrival time with your booking information.
