I found this really useful article written on a website recently about high and low seasons in this area and why prices of hotels and motels are so different in Queenstown area to the rest of NZ. It explains about seasonal rates and the shortage of accommodation in the area and how it affects prices. Also warns tourists to take out travel insurance as most establishments will no longer refund your payment if you cancel your booking.

There is a playground close to the motel (behind the Four-Square supermarket) and we back onto a reserve so lots of running space.
