Your Guide to Accommodation in Auckland
Booking accommodation in Auckland
Auckland accommodation is plentiful ranging from low cost backpackers and bed and breakfasts, to self-catering motels and apartments, to luxurious resorts and 5-star international hotel chains.
Generally speaking, like airline flights, hotel accommodation goes on sale around a year out from the intended travel date. However other options like camp sites, B&Bs and motels can generally be booked via a direct approach before this.
