IHG announces the opening of two hotels in New Zealand's South Island

IHF strengthens its presence in New Zealand with the development of a Holiday Inn hotel in Queenstown and the construction of a Holiday Inn Express unit in Christchurch - the first of the brand in the country.

The British hotel group sees potential for growth in New Zealand's South Island, Te Waipounamou. This december, the operator is set to convert the Ridgetown Resort, located in the city of Queenstown, into a Holiday Inn hotel. A $3.5 million refurbishment of the rooms and public areas is expected. This extension will bring an additional 50 rooms to the existing 75-room capacity. The hotel group also plans to launch the construction of a 120-room Holiday Inn Express property in Christchurch’s CBD, on the east coast of the South Island. The hotel is expected to open in 2018.

Karin Sheppard, COO Australasia & Japan, IHG said: “There is high demand for hotels in key destinations across New Zealand - including both Queenstown and Christchurch - as the result of a thriving tourism economy”.

The hotel group has two additional addresses in its New Zealand portfolio: the Holiday Inn Auckland Airport and the Crowne Plaza Auckland. A third unit is currently under construction in Christchurch. As of January 2016, IHG ranked as the 3rd hotel group worldwide in terms of number of rooms according to data published by Hospitality ON. At the time, its portfolio included 5,032 hotels totaling 744,368 rooms worldwide.
