Following the recent New Zealand Government policy announcements, once New Zealand enters the COVID-19 Protection Framework system (otherwise known as the traffic light system) on 3 December 2021 we will be requiring all guests aged 12 and over entering our hotel facilities to produce their Vaccine Pass. Our staff will also be vaccinated, and we are Qualmark Covid Clean certified. Under the current restrictions, continental breakfast will be served instead of buffet breakfast.

If you have any questions or concerns about this requirement, please email at or phone us on +64 3 443 0011
