Christchurch and Canterbury Hotels


Waipara Sleepers

At a Glance


  • 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, but so is the price (where else in NZ advertises <i>color</i> TV!)

Waipara Sleepers 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 camper-van sites and a number of tent sites, and they are close to the Weka Pass vintage Railway.
