Guest nights at new high

Guest nights at new high

11 June 2014

The trend for New Zealand guest nights continues to rise and has reached a new high, Statistics New Zealand said today.

"Most guest night trend series are rising and many are at new highs," business indicators manager Neil Kelly said. "April was a good month for the accommodation industry, with Easter, Anzac Day, and school holidays coinciding this year."

In April 2014 (after removing seasonal variation):
• New Zealand guest nights rose 3.2 percent, after a fall of 1.5 percent in March.
• North Island guest nights rose 4.0 percent, and South Island guest nights rose 4.5 percent.
• Domestic guest nights rose 3.4 percent, and international guest nights rose 3.9 percent.
• Guest nights rose for all four accommodation types.

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

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