Plan Your Trip with Children
New Zealand is a terrific place to travel with Kids: safe and affordable, with loads of playgrounds, Kid – centric activities, a moderate climate and chilli-free cuisine. And it never takes long to get from A to B here
Many motels and holiday parks have playgrounds, games rooms and kid’s DVDs and often fenced swimming pools,trampolines and acres of grass. Cots and high chairs aren’t always available at budget and mid range accommodation, but top-end hotels supply them and often provide child-minding services. Many B&Bs promote themselves as blissfully kid-free, and hostel tends to focus on the backpacker demographic. But there are plenty of hostels (including YHA) that do allow kids.
For large families, book ahead if you all want to sleep in the same room: many motels and hotels have adjoining rooms that can be opened up to form large family suites
