Mo­tels as­sessed for top qual­ity in top spots

The Press - Escape - - THE HIMALAYAS -

As the days grow longer, many will be think­ing about their sum­mer hol­i­days. Qual­mark-rated Top Mo­tels are lo­cated within New Zealand’s premier TOP 10 Hol­i­day Parks at more than 40 sites from Karikari Penin­sula at the top of the North Is­land to In­ver­cargill in the South Is­land.

The va­ri­ety of well-ap­pointed and qual­ity mo­tel units of­fer ex­cep­tional com­fort at an af­ford­able price.

All are in­de­pen­dently as­sessed by Qual­mark to en­sure strict Top Mo­tel stan­dards are met, mean­ing you can ex­pect the best in ev­ery­thing from a warm wel­come to clean and mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties.

‘‘With over 40 in­de­pen­dently owned Top Mo­tels around New Zealand, you will be sure to find one close to your favourite hol­i­day spot,’’ says David Oven­dale, TOP 10 Hol­i­day Parks Group chief ex­ec­u­tive.

‘‘Our mo­tels are lo­cated at the best beaches, lakes and rivers and moun­tains. Some are close to na­tional parks and oth­ers are ur­ban in the heart of var­i­ous towns and ci­ties,’’ Oven­dale says.

‘‘Par­ents will love that many of the Top Mo­tels are lo­cated in gar­den and park-like set­tings with lots of things to keep kids en­ter­tained, al­low­ing par­ents to re­ally kick back.

‘‘From heated pools, pri­vate spa pools, play­grounds and jumping pillows, kids can run around, play, ex­plore and meet other kids in a safe en­vi­ron­ment. It’s great peace of mind know­ing they’ve got ‘con­tained free­dom’ and won’t be too far away.’’

Philip Todd is the owner of the Top Mo­tel in In­ver­cargill. His prop­erty has a Qual­mark four­plus star rat­ing and sil­ver En­viro award.

‘‘We are proud to of­fer gen­uine south­ern hos­pi­tal­ity and will go the ex­tra mile to en­sure our guests go home telling peo­ple how they en­joyed their stay with us. Like all other Top Mo­tel own­ers, we are pas­sion­ate about the area we live in and our lo­cal knowl­edge means your ex­pe­ri­ence will be a great one,’’ Todd says.

‘‘Check out Trip Ad­vi­sor and see what peo­ple are say­ing, com­ments like ‘great mo­tel,’ ‘fan­tas­tic ser­vice,’ ‘another great Top 10 stay’, ‘beau­ti­ful units.’ We take real pride in what we have to of­fer and in know­ing that guests have a fan­tas­tic time stay­ing with us.’’

Many guests be­come a TOP 10 Club mem­ber which means sav­ings at all Top Mo­tels and TOP 10 Hol­i­day Parks.

Your Club mem­ber­ship also means great deals at over 500 restau­rants, cafes and ac­tiv­i­ties through­out New Zealand as well as on In­ter­is­lander ferry travel. Club mem­ber­ship now pro­vides fuel dis­counts at Mo­bil and NPD fuel out­lets around the coun­try and up to 15 per cent off tyres and bat­ter­ies from Beau­re­paires. If hop­ping across the Tas­man, Top 10 Club mem­bers are en­ti­tled to a dis­count off ac­com­mo­da­tion at BIG4 Hol­i­day Parks through­out Aus­tralia.

Top Mo­tels has a spring spe­cial, of­fer­ing a 30 per cent dis­count for mem­bers and 20 per cent dis­count for non-mem­bers at their mo­tels across New Zealand.*
