When going out of town we always check www.wotif.com and www.lastminute.co.nz for motels and hotels. Great rooms and really great prices. We also use www.holidayhomes.co.nz and www.holidayhouses.co.nz for when the whole family are going away for a few nights or more. All 3 sites have been very helpful and have saved a thousands in accommodation. Just think…a house right on the beach…all your family…sleeps 12 for around $170 a night. That’s $14 per person per night!
