Trend in Guest Nights Continues to Increase

The underlying trend in total guest nights in short-term commercial accommodation has been increasing since May 1998, according to Statistics New Zealand. The total guest nights trend is 6 percent higher in December 2002, when compared with December 2001. Actual total guest nights increased 3 percent to 3.0 million in December 2002, compared with December 2001.

Guest nights in the North Island were up 3 percent, while South Island guest nights were up 4 percent in December 2002, compared with December 2001. This is the first month since June 2002 in which the South Island has recorded the same or higher guest night growth than the North Island when compared with the same month in the previous year. The Auckland region (up 10 percent), Southland and the West Coast regions (both up 9 percent), and Nelson/Marlborough/Tasman region (up 7 percent) recorded the most significant percentage increases in guest nights in December 2002 when compared with December 2001.

All accommodation types, with the exception of caravan parks/camping grounds, recorded increases in guest nights in December 2002 when compared with December 2001.

Backpackers/hostels and hosted accommodation (both up 13 percent) recorded the largest percentage increases in guest nights in December 2002 when compared with December 2001.
