Queenstown records highest guest nights ever

Queenstown records highest guest nights ever

Queenstown has broken its record for the highest monthly guest night figures ever according to the Statistics New Zealand’s Commercial Accommodation Monitor (CAM) released today.

The CAM for January 2014 reveals that total guest nights rose 12.3 percent to 316,913 – the highest figure recorded across any month of any year.

The previous record was July 2013 with 289,891, while the previous high for a January month was in 2012 with 288,994 visitor nights.

International guest nights for January 2014 were up 15.3 percent to 207,964 (or an extra 27,522 nights) - accounting for 65.6 percent of the region’s guest nights. Domestic nights were also strong, up 7 percent to 108,949.

Destination Queenstown CEO Graham Budd said the result was very pleasing and a great way to start off the 2014 calendar year.

“It’s exciting to see Queenstown experience this record high. Feedback from our members had indicated a strong January, no doubt impacted domestically by both Auckland and Wellington anniversary weekends and internationally by the Chinese New Year holiday period that started in January.”

The January 2014 Commercial Accommodation Monitor report for Queenstown is available on the Destination Queenstown website: http://www.queenstownnz.co.nz/Media/Statistics2_md/.
