The Old Countryhouse

We are delighted that you have chosen to stay with The Old Countryhouse for your stay in Christchurch. Being a multi award winning Boutique Backpackers hostel we are committed to making your stay here as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Travellers, Holiday Makers and Business People are finding The Old Countryhouse a great place to base themselves for their stay in Christchurch. The Old Countryhouse is situated close to the Avon River where you can feed the ducks or just relax surrounded by trees and greenery. The hostel is just 1500 metres away from Cathedral Square, the centre of Christchurch with its museums and art galleries and it’s just one minute walk away from supermarket, ATM Cash Point Machines and Take Aways. Walk along flat tree-lined suburban streets past the picturesque Latimer Square or catch a public bus to the airport or the long sandy beaches from outside our door. Some fantastic restaurants including our favourite cafe are less than 10 minutes walk away. If you have a car, there is plenty of room to park outside the hostel for free. We also provide secure onsite cycle parking.

The Old Countryhouse has established itself to cater for travellers who wish to experience up-market facilities at budget prices. You are paying backpacker prices for hotel grade mattresses and linen, spotlessly clean hostel facilities and the small but essential luxuries such as a guest telephone with FREE local calls, FREE WIFI throughout the property, coin operated computer with Internet, plus off course our FREE Spa Sanctuary with a Spa Pool and Sauna.

Our villas have been built in the 1890's as the homes to the local Church community pioneers and today it is still a pleasure to sit under the large shady verandas or under the lush green tree to reflect on a day of sightseeing, a rafting, skydiving or jet boating adventure or a cultural experience in one of the many museums or galleries. Often guests just enjoy a cup of tea, a glass of wine and simply watch hostel life go by or take a walk through the tranquil garden with its winding path ways connecting our beautiful colonial villas.

We are looking forward to welcoming you here shortly.

So please be aware if your credit card is unable to be authorised we have no other option than to cancel your booking. Our bank has informed us that a credit card will not authorise if it has an incorrect number or expiry, has insufficient funds, has been blocked or cancelled or is fraudulent. We reserve the right to charge your credit card at a later date.

Reception is open between 9am and 8pm. Guests may check-in any time after 3pm during reception hours.

LATE ARRIVALS:
We are pleased to offer a late check in service for guests arriving at night.

With your booking you agree for us to take full payment for your booking (plus $3 creditcard processing fee) at the time of booking so we can promptly send you our Late Arrival Instructions. Please ensure that you will have sufficient time prior to your arrival date to check your emails in order to receive these instructions 'on time' prior to your arrival. For security purposes, once we have taken payment and sent you our late arrival instructions containing an access door code, your booking becomes non-refundable and non-transferable.
If you made a 'last second' booking for the same night and/or will not have internet access prior to your arrival, please contact us during reception hours so that we can talk you through you our late arrival instructions.

We understand that you may like to change your plans. You may change or cancel (all or part of) your booking by email to us until 7pm (local NZ time), at least 48 hours prior to the start of the day of your arrival. To avoid confusion, here is an example: When the arrival date is the 10th June, then the cancellation must be received before 7pm on 7th June.

An email is not considered notification until it is read by our staff (during our reception hours), and we will confirm the receipt of your cancellation or change of booking by return email, so you too know that your email has been received and your request has been actioned.

Cancellations or changes to the booking received inside the 48 hours policy will be charged to your credit card with the full amount for the booking. But, if we do not hear from you and you do not arrive, then we will charge your credit card with the full amount for your booking and we reserve the right to charge your card at a later date.
