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)


Stay and play

Here are a couple of suggestions:

Explore the Mediterranean on a cruise ship starting from Barcelona and experience the city of that inspires passion. Stand beneath the Sagrada Familia, which architect Antoni Gaudi began working on in 1882 and is still a work in progress, the Gothic Quarter is the nucleus of old Barcelona and is a maze of interconnecting streets linking squares with lots of cafes & bars. Cruise ships also depart from other European cities.

Walk a portion of the Camino de Santiago (the Way of St James), a large network of ancient pilgrimage routes coming together at the tomb of St James in Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain.

The options are endless, our dedicated travel specialists, will work with you on your specific requirements to extend your travel if required. Please indicate on your registration form (in the Stay and Play section) if you are interested in extending your stay and HOT Events will be in touch with you regarding your requirements.
