Important Information

RECEPTION HOURS AND CHECK IN:
During opening hours between 9am to 8pm: Guests may check-in any time after 3pm during reception hours. Please remember that you MUST ARRIVE BEFORE 8 PM as our reception will be closed after 8pm.

AIRPORT SHUTTLE SERVICE:
If you would like us to book a shuttle from the airport to the hostel, please use the airport shuttle form on our website www.oldcountryhouse.co.nz to contact us after you made your booking.

ARRIVING OUTSIDE OPENING HOURS:
We are delighted to offer a late check in service for guests with bookings FOR PRIVATE ROOMS ONLY. Once we receive your booking with a late arrival time, we will take full payment (plus $3 credit card processing fee) as it is our policy to only send out our Late Arrival Instructions for prepaid accommodation and your booking then can not be changed or transferred.

If your booking includes a dorm bed and you are (or members of your group) are arriving outside our reception hours, then you will be liable for the full payment of your booking (even through you (and/or the other members of your group) will not be able to use your bed due to the arrival time being outside reception hours), as your bed will not be bookable to anybody else. The same applies if you have booked a private room plus a dorm bed. Please note that you have been prompted that you (or all members of your group) must arrive inside reception hours to book a bed in a dorm prior to making your booking, therefore the payment is your responsibility.

PAYMENT:
Full payment of the balance is due IN CASH on arrival. Credit card or debit card use is available but will incur a small surcharge.

CANCELLATION POLICY:
Guests may change or cancel their booking by email to: theoldcountryhouse@yahoo.co.nz. before 7pm (NZ time) up to 2 full days before date of arrival and no fee will be charged. If cancelled or changed later or in case of no-show, the total price of the reservation will be charged.

EXTENDED CANCELLATION POLICY for Christmas & New Year Bookings:
Any cancellation or change of your booking must be received by email ONE WEEK PRIOR TO your arrival. Cancellations within one week and failure to arrive will be charged at 100% of your booking. However we will endeavour to re-let your room and if successful there will only be a small administration charge.

DEPOSIT PAID TO HOSTELWORLD: The deposit you paid to Hostelworld is non-refundable and non-transferable to other bookings or booking dates.

From $33

Welcome to the Old Countryhouse, one of Christchurch's favourite backpacker accommodation hostels for 16 years offering FREE unlimited WiFi, so you can stay in touch with family and friends as well as our FREE sauna and spa pool, so you can re-charge your energies for your next adventure.

FREE UNLIMITED WIFI. We invite you to take a walk along our garden path to one of our charming colonial villas with polished wooden floors and hand-made native timber furniture. All our villas have been fully restored and have everything to make your stay with us a memorable one. They are set among landscaped gardens, and have electronic secure access.

Some of the CBD is still closed but the best parts of Christchurch are open and definitely worth a visit. Make sure you see reception for information and bookings on all the best attractions and activities in and around Christchurch. Ask for our Walking Rally taking you through the new and funky places that have popped up all over the city as well as the city sights.

Max, our puppy, has just turned two, he now is a big fellow, still keen to play and just loves big cuddles. We will post an updated photo of him shortly.

THE ACCOMMODATION:

Full central heating to keep warm during those cold winter months, Doubles & Twins (with and without private bathrooms) & spacious Dorms - all with firm beds for a good nights sleep. Triple rooms have one double and one single bed. All private rooms have fully made up beds. All bedding is included free of charge in both private rooms and dorms.

THE FACILITIES:

Well-equipped kitchens with everything you need to cook up a storm. TV lounge and a separate reading lounge to chill out & other home comforts such as laundry, guest telephone & Internet, off street parking.

FREE WIFI:

WiFi internet is available in all bedrooms and public areas.

THE GARDEN:

Our spacious garden is landscaped with lots of native plants, fern trees and palm trees and is a wonderful space to relax. Plenty of outdoor seating invites you to sit back and relax with a good book, plan your next adventure, or enjoy a conversation with friends and a glass of wine.

THE LOCATION:

The Old Countryhouse is located on the eastern side of central Christchurch. We have the best of both worlds: close enough to the city to walk easily within 15 minutes, yet right next to local shops and restaurants. There is a supermarket, the best butcher in Christchurch, post office, Subway restaurant, Fish'n Chips, etc. conveniently located just across the road. Two of our favourite Cafe's are just a short 5-10 minute walk as it our favourite pub.

Buses to local beaches, all major shopping malls and city leave directly from our doorstep. Easily accessible from the airport and only 1500 metres from the Intercity Bus Depot.

THE STAFF:

We are friendly people and keen travellers ourselves. We are looking forward to meeting you and can help with your travel questions and bookings - we have heaps of local knowledge too.

The Old Countryhouse is a great choice for your stay in Christchurch.

We look forward to meeting you!
