Lock-up Lodge

A Napier prison-turned-backpackers features in a Guardian travel story on jail-themed hotels. Decommissioned in 1993, the Napier Prison was reopened in 2002 to offer tours and budget accommodation. Guardian: “You can have it the easy way – staying in modest comfort in a converted cell (double with loo and sink), or a dormitory. Or you can have it the hard way with a stretch in an original unpadded cell.”
