SCANZ 2013 3rd nature

Residency and Hui symposium options for stay

For residency artists particularly, we recommend Te Henui Lodge. The lodge consists of two buildings, which were formerly student halls of residence, now run as a stand alone business. Consequently they are practically on the WITT campus, which is the site of the residency. They are clean, have good wifi and the building for short term stay (which is where SCANZ people stay) is going to be refurbished according to the new owners. The room rates are the most competitive. Prices are around $60 per night for a single room, $70 per night for twin/double. Weekly rates are $180 for a single, $220 for a twin/double. Residents stay 17 nights from Jan 18 check in to Monday 4 Feb check out, and that means that three weeks applies, so total is $540 single, $660 for a twin/double.

There is also the Plymouth Hotel.  This is an international standard hotel, which is in walking distance (10-15 minutes) of WITT campus. Room rates vary from $110 – $390 per night, and this depends on the time of travel.

Sunflower Lodge is a backpackers type accommodation, and quite nicely set close to bush. It is relatively new, and again close to WITT. They ask that people inquire to get room rates. There are dorm, twin/triple, single and double room options.
