Tips for choosing your motel accommodation New Zealand

Tip 1 - Read Accommodation Reviews

Read the motel reviews given by other customers. These can often reveal lots of useful information about a hotel, such as location, ease of access, service, facilities etc.

Tip 2 - Look For A Room With A View When Choosing Your Motel Accommodation

New Zealand is a spectacular country. Our choice is to always stay in a "room with a view", and if possible, a room with a deck or outdoor area. At the end of a long day, sitting on a deck with a beer or wine and looking out at the kiwi countryside is a great way to relax and plan your next days activities.

Tip 3 - Carefully Research The Location Of Your Motel Accommodation

Is your chosen accommodation close to restaurants, shops etc? Is your hotel a level walk to facilities (some areas of New Zealand are hilly so if that's an issue for you, best to find a hotel that's not too far from facilities).

Does your hotel need to be close to the airport? If you are flying in from a far away country, then the last thing you need after a long flight is a long drive to your hotel. Similarly, it might be best to stay close to the airport the night before you depart from New Zealand.

Tip 4 - Plan your holiday dates carefully

In the peak periods around Easter, Christmas, and the New Zealand school holidays, many centers can be become quite busy, and the perfect accommodation can sometimes be hard to find.

So if you are planning on traveling at a peak time, we strongly suggest booking your accommodation in advance.
