New Zealand Accommodation Recommendations Needed

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be spending 3 weeks in New Zealand in February, and would love to have your input on the following list of potential places to stay - what you recommend and what to avoid, pros/cons, etc. We are in our early 60s, and looking for 3-4 star hotels/motels (or B&Bs where appropriate) in the mid-range of price. We will NOT have a car in either Auckland or Christchurch so would like something centrally located in those destinations. We will have a car in all the rest of the cities. The ideas were mostly gleaned from travel guidebooks, Trip Advisor, etc., and we are not set on any of these, so your suggestions would be most welcomed.

AUCKLAND: Mercure or CityLife or Quay West or Waldorf Stadium Apartments Hotel
PAIHIA: Breakwater Motel
WAITOMO: Abseil Breakfast Inn
ROTORUA: Silver Fern Rotorua
WHAKAPAPA: Bayview Chateau Tongariro
WELLINGTON: Bolton Hotel or Rydges Wellington or BEST WESTERN Wellington
CHRISTCHURCH: CentrePoint on Colombo Motel or City Centre Motel
HOKITIKA: 252 Beachside Motels & Holiday Park or Beachfront Hotel Hokitika
FRANZ JOSEF: Franz Josef Oasis or Alpine Glacier Motor Lodge or 58 On Cron Motel
QUEENSTOWN: Pounamu Apartments or Crowne Plaza Queenstown or Oaks Club Resort or Hurley's
DUNEDIN: Dunedin Palms Motel or 315 Euro Motel

Thanks in advance for your help.

Betty
