Guest Nights Boosted by School Holidays

9 December 2005

Guest Nights Boosted by School Holidays

Guest nights in short-term commercial accommodation were 2 percent higher in October 2005 than in October 2004, Statistics New Zealand said today. The timing of the school holidays will have contributed to an increase in guest nights. In 2005, one week of the school holidays fell in October and one week in September, while in 2004 the majority of the school holidays fell in September.

Domestic guest nights were 6 percent higher in October 2005 than in October 2004. Guest nights spent by international visitors were 2 percent lower, with visitors from North America recording the largest decrease in international guest nights.

In October 2005, guest nights were up 2 percent in the North Island and up 3 percent in the South Island, compared with October 2004. Nine of the 12 regions recorded more guest nights for the same period, with Wellington recording the largest increase. Auckland recorded the largest decrease.

Four of the five accommodation types recorded more guest nights in October 2005 than in October 2004, with motels showing the largest increase.
