With a range of “Summer Breaks” packages on offer for guests from mid- December, Heritage Hotels is making it easier for Australians to make a last minute decision to head to New Zealand for the holidays.
With offerings such as indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts and gyms at the hotels, which are located in key cities on both islands, guests could be forgiven for never wanting to leave the properties.
But just in case they want to play outdoors as well, the following packages are on offer:

This includes accommodation in a Family Deluxe Suite with complimentary valet parking, a full buffet breakfast for two adults and two children at Hectors Restaurant with its healthy eating philosophy on offer, complimentary Wi-Fi and drinks vouchers on arrival.
