Guest nights rise in July

10 September 2014

The trend for New Zealand guest nights continued to rise in July, Statistics New Zealand said today. The series has risen for the latest 26 months.

"Seven of the nine trend series for guest nights rose in July, while two were flat," business indicators manager Neil Kelly said. "Most seasonally adjusted series also rose, following drops in June."

In July 2014 (after removing seasonal variation):

• New Zealand guest nights rose 1.3 percent, after a 4.5 percent fall in June.

• North Island guest nights rose 0.3 percent, and South Island guest nights rose 3.2 percent.

• Domestic guest nights rose 3.9 percent, and international guest nights rose 1.3 percent.

• Guest nights rose for holiday parks, motels, and hotels, but fell for backpacker accommodation.

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