New Zealand Golf Tours Accommodation
New Zealand golf tours can be so varied depending on where you stay and how much you get involved with the locals. Golfstays has attempted to give a variety of accommodation options, so you can indulge in sheer luxury or go to the other extreme of "do it yourself". Below are descriptions of accommodation types so you can plan your New Zealand golf tours to experience the Kiwi hospitality or enjoy the solitude of being by yourselves and absorbing the stunning scenery.
Guest and Hosted -Bed and Breakfast , Homestay and Farmstay- For a closer connection to New Zealand's people and culture, you can choose to stay in a more 'home-like' environment.
You can expect a comfortable, attractive bedroom often with tea and coffee making facilities, a television and a phone. Your bathroom could be ensuite, private or shared. Lounge and dining areas are usually shared with other guests. In most cases, breakfast is included in the price. Lunches and dinners are optional extras. Many of Golfstays accommodation hosts are golfers themselves and may be prepared to be your personal New Zealand golf tours guide and invite you to play with them at their local course. You will also find out about activities and attractions, good picnic spots, restaurants and much more.
Self Contained and Serviced -Motels, Holiday Homes and Apartments- If you want to do your own thing and have the option of looking after your own cooking and laundry needs, then check out New Zealand's motels, serviced apartments and serviced holiday cottages.
Some New Zealand golf tours that have been arranged and booked through a tour operator use motels. These are usually located on main driving routes, so they're generally easy to find. There is often a choice of units - studio, one bedroom or two bedroom. All units have tea, coffee and toast facilities, most will have TV and many will have cooking facilities. Larger motels often have facilities similar to hotels - swimming pool, spa, sauna, in-house video, laundry, breakfast, restaurant and so on. Motor inns and motor lodges offer a similar level of accommodation and services as Motels. Serviced apartments are an option when you're staying in a major city or resort town. Many are a similar price to a high quality hotel suite, but you'll have the ability to cook your own meals and do your own laundry. They offer daily or regular servicing. Renting a holiday home, for a short or long stay, gives you the luxury of a whole house to yourself. Sometimes described as 'baches' or 'cribs', holiday homes are found in idyllic locations beside beaches, rivers, lakes and forests.
Holiday Parks - Throw your golf clubs into a motorhome and you can just amble from one Holiday Park to another.
New Zealand golf tours do not need to be planned and you can be as itinerant as you wish. Holiday Parks are often located in New Zealand's most popular holiday spots. If you are parking a motorhome, you can choose a powered or non-powered site. Easy access to a shared kitchen and bathroom facilities is always part of the deal. Often you'll also have the use of a dining area and a comfortable TV lounge. Holiday parks are equipped to please a wide range of people for a minimal cost. Within an attractive landscaped setting (often beside a beach or lake) they provide sites for tents, caravans and campervans. Many parks also have simple cabins, self-contained motel units and backpackers' lodges. Close to most Holiday Parks you will find a choice of golf courses, so you may find yourself having to re look at your New Zealand golf tours.
Hotels - From international chains to local originality and are more than capable of looking after New Zealand golf tours and accommodating their needs.
Hotels in New Zealand come in all shapes, sizes and personalities. You'll also discover smaller hotels that are memorable for their individuality and in convenient locations on all the main traveling routes. Large international chains are mostly found in the major cities - Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. They're also located in key holiday destinations, such as Rotorua and Queenstown. Character and boutique hotels, which range from heritage buildings to purpose built facilities in stunning regional locations, vary in price according to their level of luxury. Hosts are welcoming and provide insight into the local culture and attractions. Medium-price chains provide a consistent level of quality and a high standard of facilities, including swimming pools and spas.
