NZ’s top Holiday Park hosts in running for hospitality award

NZ’s top Holiday Park hosts in running for hospitality award

Energy and enthusiasm can be the difference between providing good service and exceptional service.

A panel of judges has selected five holiday parks from across New Zealand as finalists for the AA Traveller Spirit of Hospitality Award, which recognises and celebrates the effort put in by the people who provide the experiences at New Zealand holiday parks.

AA Traveller supports domestic tourism in New Zealand by publishing and distributing more than three million maps and accommodation guides every year to assist motorists and visitors as they explore the country.

AA Traveller National Sales Manager Lynne Graham says providing great hospitality is an essential ingredient for any accommodation provider.

“Great hospitality can be the icing on the cake when it comes to exceeding guests’ expectations and it’s heart-warming to see just how much commitment entrants for the award this year have made to ensure they provide top service.

The five finalists are:
• All Seasons Holiday Park Rotorua
• Aspiring Holiday Park & Motels (Wanaka)
• Bowentown Beach Holiday Park (Waihi Beach)
• Mawley Holiday Park (Masterton)
• Mercury Bay Holiday Park (Whitianga)

“I congratulate each of the finalists on setting the bar as high as they have. It is entirely possible for any of the finalists to take home the award so it is going to be difficult to select a winner,” says Ms Graham.

The winner of the AA Traveller Spirit of Hospitality Award will be announced on Wednesday, June 25 at the HAPNZ Conference in Blenheim.

The judging panel was made up of representatives from the AA and AA Traveller, Qualmark, HAPNZ andInside Tourism.

The New Zealand Automobile Association is an incorporated society with more than one million members. It represents the interests of road users who collectively pay more than $2 billion in taxes each year through fuels excise, road user charges and GST.
