The Mainstay Hotel Group is New Zealand's largest collection of individually owned independent Hotels & Apartments. Our 36 member properties are located from Paihia to Invercargill and at every key tourist resort and city in between.

You may not think of Hotels as having a personality, or a special distinctive character and charm all of their own.  But that's precisely what makes Mainstay New Zealand Hotels so very different from others you may have experienced.  Each has a unique style and ambience which reflects its location, surroundings and cultural heritage.

However, there is one common trait in all Mainstay New Zealand Hotels and that is its people. Hoteliers and their staff who are committed to offering you the highest level of personal and professional service.

No other New Zealand Hotel Group can rival our range of locations and number of properties. When travelling either with a group or independently, it's easy to find a Mainstay Hotel that will suit your individual needs and offer exceptional value for money.

Our free to use Central Reservations service, toll free numbers, range of locations, accommodation styles and unique Kiwi hospitality ensures Mainstay Hotels are your New Zealand's "one stop accommodation shop".

Quality Assurance

Mainstay Hotels - 100% Qualmark Rated

Mainstay New Zealand Hotels' owners - and staff are commited to your comfort, and to quality. Each hotel is independantly reviewed by the Qualmark New Zealand classification and evaluation system, combining both quality and facilities of accommodation and the hotels commitment to environmental issues.

Qualmark is New Zealand's official tourism quality mark and an internationally recognised quality classification and environmental accreditation system.

The system encompasses a five level scale, expressed as a star rating:



Within each star grading, those offering a better range and quality of facilities and services are recognised with a "plus".

An "Applied" in the rating column indicates that the Qualmark grade has not been finalised for that property.


Extra Services

In addition to providing accommodation, we are delighted to announce Mainstay Hotels can now provide our bookers with the ability to book a rental car.
