North Island's West Coast Hotels

Bed-and-breakfasts are often stylishly converted country homesteads; sometimes they're custom built. There are also luxury lodges and a wonderful range of self-catering villas and cottages (some on working farms, others with spectacular coastal locations, and a few deep in the forest-covered hinterland). National parks have mountain lodges, river lodges, and basic backcountry huts and camping spots

managed by the Department of Conservation.

In tourist towns and larger cities, there's the full range of options: boutique hotels, standard hotels with basic rooms, motels with full kitchens, holiday parks with RV sites and sometimes motels and apartments, and backpacker hostels. Although hostels are generally budget options, many with shared facilities, an increasing number are modern and with private en suite rooms.
