Queenstown hits record domestic guest nights for September

Published on : Tuesday, November 12, 2013

QueenstownzStatistics New Zealand’s latest research shows steady growth in overall guest nights for September 2013 with a record number of domestic visitor nights for the month.


According to the Commercial Accommodation Monitor (CAM) released today, total visitor nights for September 2013 were up 5.4 percent to 194,317. Domestic guest nights were up 8.9 percent to 73,526, an increase of 6,037, which is a record for the month of September.


International visitor nights were up 3.4 percent for September to 120,790 and accounted for 62.2 percent of all guest nights to the region.


For the year ended September 2013, total guest nights for the region increased by 9 percent to 2,721,073 compared with the previous year.


Destination Queenstown CEO Graham Budd said the September results rounded off a very pleasing winter season in Queenstown.


“A notable trend throughout winter was the increase in average length of stay for our visitors and this has been largely responsible for guest night increases, rather than many more people arriving. This has clear benefits for our accommodation and hospitality sectors but may not translate so obviously to more business for ski areas, attractions and activity operators. However, overall the general sense is that it was a good season.”
