Hotels & Resorts

Hotels range from familiar international chains to unique boutique hotels. Expect to find top international hotel chains in cities and in resorts like Rotorua and Queenstown. On main travelling routes you’ll find a number of mid-priced chains. Secure and hassle-free, they offer a consistent standard; your bathroom is usually en suite and daily servicing or room service is usually available. Most rooms have tea/coffee making facilities.

Dotted around New Zealand, there are also independent hotels memorable for their individuality and local charm. Scenic Hotels and Heartland Hotels are part of the Scenic Hotel Group, New Zealand’s largest independently owned and operated hotel group, while Millennium Hotels & Resorts encompasses Millennium, Copthorne and Kingsgate Hotels.

Heritage & CityLife Hotels offer superior suite-style accommodation. Try the Heritage Boutique Collection for self-contained apartment accommodation. Mainstay Hotel Group is a network of independently-owned hotels and apartments.

Other international chains in New Zealand include Accor, Hilton, Intercontinental, Rydges, Grand Chancellor and Holiday Inn. Also look out for the chain of Sudima Hotels.
