New Zealand team accommodation

HOT Events recognise that athletes travelling to race have different requirements in terms of budget, hotel standard, hotel facilities and room configurations. We have chosen this hotel as the official hotel based on its great location; as well as the great value offered as a room rate.

All accommodation is classified as follows: single use (one person/one bed), twin share (two people, two beds) or double share (two people/one bed). Space at the team hotel will be limited so we strongly advise booking early. Bookings will be on a first in, first served basis.

Shared Rooms

Share accommodation is based on twin rooms only (maximum 2 adults per room).

If athletes are travelling alone and wish to share with someone, HOT Events will assist with matching up with other athletes of similar age/gender as best as possible.

Shared rooms will be subject to finding another athlete who is staying the same dates. This is not guaranteed and should no other athlete require the same dates, the athlete who has requested accommodation will be required to pay the total cost of the room (single supplement).
