Great Places to Stay
Whether you're looking for a luxury hotel, a family motel, a budget backpacker, a homely bed & breakfast, a holiday home or a spacious holiday park, the Qualmark identifies quality assured accommodation suitable for any type of traveller.
Accommodation providers have undergone a rigorous assessment and licensing process to become part of the Qualmark licensing system. They will meet your essential requirements of cleanliness, safety, security and comfort; and offer a range and quality of services appropriate to their star grade.
Accommodation providers are also assessed on environment performance.
The star grading and classification system applies to accommodation. The Qualmark gives you details on both the accommodation category and their star grading. When you see a Qualmark Enviro Award logo it identifies their level of environmental performance.
Things to Do & Ways to Get Around

Qualmark Enviro Awards
All tourism businesses with a Qualmark logo have been assessed on their environmental performance; meaning that they have met a set of benchmark criteria and actions. These include the completion of environmental review and action plans, recycling options, and other initiatives.
The Qualmark Enviro Awards recognise those businesses that go beyond the benchmark. By demonstrating a commitment to being the best possible advocate within the community and continuing to minimise their environmental impact and resource usage; they earn the right to display and use an Enviro Gold, Silver or Bronze logo.
For you, recognising top performing Qualmark Enviro businesses is easy. Look for the Enviro Award logos on online listings and in other promotional material such as guide books and brochures. This is part of New Zealand tourism's commitment to looking after New Zealand for future generations to continue to enjoy.
