Guest nights remain at high level

Guest nights remain at high level – Media release

Friday 17 January

The trend for national guest nights spent in short-term commercial accommodation remains at a record high level, Statistics New Zealand said today. However, the rate of growth continues to show signs of easing.

Trends are rising for North Island and domestic guest nights, but the trend for the South Island appears to have flattened. Although the trend remains negative for international guest nights, the rate of decline has softened.

"November 2013 was a good month for international visitor arrivals," industry and labour statistics manager Clara Eatherley said. "This is reflected in the large increase in international guest nights."

In November 2013 (after removing seasonal variation):
• International guest nights rose 7.1 percent, and domestic guest nights fell 0.7 percent.
• New Zealand guest nights rose 1.7 percent, following a rise of 0.5 percent in October.
• North Island guest nights rose 2.5 percent, and South Island guest nights rose 0.7 percent.
• Guest nights rose for holiday parks, backpacker accommodation, and hotels, but were nearly flat for motels.

The Accommodation Survey records the number of guests staying in hotels, motels, backpacker accommodation, and holiday parks in New Zealand each month.

For more information on monthly accommodation statistics, see the Accommodation Survey: November 2013; for visitor numbers, seeInternational Travel and Migration: November 2013.

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
