National guest nights flat

National guest nights flat – Media release

12 March 2014

The trend for New Zealand guest nights appears to be flattening at a record high level, Statistics New Zealand said today. Trends for North Island and domestic guest nights are also at high levels, but after more than a year of growth are showing signs of easing.

"Most trend series are rising," industry and labour statistics manager Blair Cardno said. "However, other indicators show mixed results."

In January 2014 (after removing seasonal variation):
• New Zealand guest nights rose 0.1 percent, following a fall of 0.2 percent in December.
• North Island guest nights rose 0.5 percent, and South Island guest nights fell 0.4 percent.
• Domestic guest nights rose 0.6 percent, while international guest nights were unchanged.
• Guest nights rose for hotels, but fell for motels, backpacker accommodation, and holiday parks.

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: January 2014. For visitor numbers, see International Travel and Migration: January 2014.
