Places to Stay

Whether your budget runs to a luxurious lodge and fine dining or to a simple inn, we’ll find accommodation in New Zealand that we know will add to your experience during your holiday. We’ll help you to find the best places to stay in New Zealand to make your trip extra special.

We carefully handpick all our accommodation so we know you’ll love staying there as much as we do, and we pride ourselves on finding places that truly feel like a home from home.

This includes our selection of family-run Bed & Breakfasts and rural homestays for an authentic Kiwi welcome with exceptional hospitality. Silver Fern Holidays can even find you a bach at the beach if you want to get back to basics! You’ll never need to worry about where to stay in New Zealand when you book with us.

Farmstays & Homestays

Staying with a New Zealand family on their farm or in their own house is a great way to meet the locals and experience a real Kiwi lifestyle.

If you choose a farmstay, you may have the chance to help milk the cows, feed the calves or fix fences, you might even get to take an Alpaca for a walk!

At a Homestay you’ll be part of the family for the duration of your stay, sharing the home with your hosts and enjoying insights into local life. Your host may introduce you to some of the local sights and their friends, or particular interests they follow.

As with life, the more you put in the more you get out and our hosts are generally lively types who meet you more than half-way. You may even find yourself with a life-long friend!

Bed & Breakfasts

Bed & Breakfasts in New Zealand run the gamut of size and style, from a boutique-hotel approach to the laid-back beach house.  There are cosy townhouses in colonial suburbs and individual homesteads in wilderness areas, and the owners are as individual as the properties.

What all Bed & Breakfasts have in common is a warm and friendly welcome and lots of local knowledge so you can really make the most of your stay in the area.

A New Zealand Bed and Breakfast stay really does offer truly personal experience and we highly recommend including a few such stops within your holiday itinerary.

Character Inns & Country Lodges

Offering generous hospitality in luxurious surroundings, with a particular emphasis upon well-appointed furnishings and classy interiors, Character Inns and Country Lodges are a great choice if you want a night or two somewhere extra special during your trip.

Beautifully appointed and often with the most spectacular views and facilities, New Zealand lodges and character inns ensure a special stay, with fabulous breakfasts and genuine hospitality.
