  • Being an historian I loved the ambiance of the old jail. The facilities were excellent and more than adequate. We loved the contact with the locals at the Vulcan Hotel and the hospitality of Jude and Mike Kavanagh was a delight. It is not often that I will give a top overall rating — but here it is. I will come back! 5

  • Thanks Bill. So good to hear you appreciated the jail. Interesting interview on Radio NZ this morning with Lizzie Tollemarche and David Ladderman – who came close to burning the jail down! But I have to say I am very sceptical about their explanation. Nice story though. http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/ninetonoon/audio/2018619286/a-spooky-otago-honeymoon

  • The Jailhouse is really well set up with a well equipped kitchen (and generous breakfast supplies), nice modern bathroom, comfortable bed and very cosy bedroom. The private garden and verandah, which caught the afternoon sun beautifully, were lovely places to relax after a morning's sightseeing. 5

  • How many places in the world can you get to stay in a genuine historic gaol?! Though small, as most cells are, the modernisation has created just enough space for two to stay comfortably, while retaining authenticity. And it's cozy too! 5
