Hotel and motels had a quiet June, with national guest nights down 4.4 per cent in the month, more than reversing a small gain in May.

Domestic guest nights fell 8.1 per cent in June, while international guest nights were down only 2.3 per cent, after adjusting for the usual winter slowdown, Statistics NZ figures show.

Guest nights were down almost 5 per cent in the North Island, but slightly less in the South Island, according to the figures, released today.

However, the trend in guest nights has been rising since early 2012.

Within the sub-sectors in June, hotel guest nights fell 2.8 per cent, but guest nights in the motel sector were down 7.8 per cent in the month on a seasonally adjusted basis.

Backpacker guest nights eased only slightly, down 2.2 per cent, while holiday parks were down 5.2 per cent.
