Christchurch and Canterbury Hotels

Waipara Sleepers

  • 10–12 Glenmark Dr. Map It
  • Waipara


  • Very rustic and rural
  • Complete with all the sounds and smells of the country
  • A good stop for anyone cycle-touring


  • Some of the accommodations and services are quite basic (where else in NZ advertises color TV!) but so is the price

Fodor's Review

Wake up to fresh-baked bread and newly laid eggs every morning at this basic-but-rather-quirky backpackers lodge housed in old railway carriages and huts. It's first-come, first-served for breakfast in the station waiting room (now a basic, communal kitchen). Some of the carriages retain old leather seating and travel posters. There are also powered campervan sites and a number of tent sites, and they are close to the Weka Pass vintage Railway.
