MEDIA RELEASE

Choice Hotels Adds Kaikoura to NZ Portfolio

Choice Hotels Australasia, one of Australasia’s largest hotel franchisors, welcomes Quality Suites Kaikoura to its growing portfolio.

Based in the seaside town of Kaikoura, the addition of Quality Suites Kaikoura will take its New Zealand offering to 35 properties, represented under the Econo Lodge, Comfort, Quality and Clarion hotel brands.

Newly refurbished and offering exceptional views of the township, mountains and ocean, the 4-star Quality Suites Kaikoura boasts 19 rooms and is located a short stroll from the beach and Kaikoura township.

Trent Fraser, CEO of Choice Hotels Australasia, is delighted to welcome the Kaikoura property to the fold.

”Having experienced the property first-hand, I know our guests will be suitably impressed by the property’s spacious, comfortable rooms, complimentary WIFI and central location.

“It’s the perfect pit stop for those wanting to experience a picturesque New Zealand town, chow down on some of the freshest whitebait fritters and take in the breathtaking whale-watching the area is famous for,” Fraser says.

A one and a half hour drive south of Blenheim and two and half hour drive north from Christchurch, the hotel is an ideal middle ground for travellers exploring the South Island of New Zealand.

Choice Hotels Australasia has more than 270 hotels across Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, with more than 11,000 rooms. Choice Hotels Australasia is a 100 per cent owned subsidiary of Choice Hotels International, a publicly listed (NYSE: CHH) company in the United States with more than 6,300 hotels and 500,000 rooms in more than 35 countries and territories.
