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, WIFI and Internet, plus off course our 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.
