Guest nights still at high level

Guest nights still at high level – Media release

11 December 2013

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 may be slowing.

"There is a mixed picture with guest night trend movements," industry and labour statistics manager Clara Eatherley said. "Trends are rising for both main islands and for domestic guest nights, but are falling for international guest nights and most accommodation types."

Other monthly figures also had mixed results. In October 2013 (after removing seasonal variation):
• New Zealand guest nights rose 0.5 percent, following a fall of 2.2 percent in September.
• North Island guest nights fell 1.1 percent, and South Island guest nights rose 2.7 percent.
• Domestic guest nights rose 2.6 percent, and international guest nights fell 3.6 percent.
• Guest nights rose for holiday parks and backpacker accommodation, but fell for hotels and 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: October 2013; for visitor numbers, seeInternational Travel and Migration: October 2013.
