New Zealand - South Island

The rugged South Island New Zealand is less populated than the North and the scenery is spectacular. From the fertile plains of the east to the glaciers and fiords of the west, this is an island waiting to be explored.

We have listed some great value accommodation in regional centres from where you can get out and discover the great New Zealand outdoors.

For help with your trip ask for our free Holiday Planning Service.

Hotels and apartments listed are those chosen by our inspectors and by our customers for their location and value. You can sort them by name, by location or by price. For touring hotels and lodges in rural locations talk to one of our New Zealand travel experts.
