Lloyd and Debbie Stone from Hamilton-based, award winning Arena Court Motor Lodge look forward to what a merger could offer their hotel.

HOSPITALITY New Zealand and the Motel Association of New Zealand (MANZ) have begun preliminary talks about an exciting new partnership between the two associations.

 The Motel Association recently had their annual conference in Dunedin where the merger was discussed and approval for the board to further investigations towards progressing into the future by those attending.

 Lloyd Stone owner of Hamilton’s Arena Court Motel, as well as Waikato Motel Association Vice President was present at the conference: “There were some real positives from the conference, the merger would offer some great opportunities,” said Lloyd. “We don’t want to disregard the Tourism Industry Association through this as tourism is our main focus,” continues Lloyd.

 Lloyd and Debbie Stone who have been in the hospitality industry for a number of years are part of the Motel Association and look forward to what the merger could offer their motel Arena Court Motel.

 Arena Court Motel, which is situated at 21 Willoughby St, Hamilton is one of Hamilton’s newest motels. At Arena Court Motel all rooms are double-glazed and well appointed and also include air conditioning, cooking facilities, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities, with scrumptious breakfasts available, and a chargeback facility with many local restaurants.

The merger, which brings together Hospitality New Zealand’s 2500 hospitality businesses which include many of the restaurants, cafes and bars and MANZ 800 motel members, will create a greater membership base and hopefully appeal to more people to join.

 “The merger could create one accommodation sector body that includes all forms of accommodation and puts them all under one umbrella.” Says Lloyd.

 Peter Nash, president of MANZ, has said: “I can say with confidence that the merger we have planned with HNZ will offer our members much better value and a brighter future.”

Both organizations say it is early days and there is much work to do to ensure a positive outcome but already talks have been running for several months and the feedback has been positive.

Hospitality New Zealand will now have their annual meeting and an outcome from these current talks is expected to be announced in October. 

 

 

Lloyd Stone of Hamilton- based Arena Court Motor Lodge hopes possible merger between the MANZ and HNZ could help organizations work together to make accommodation even better.

THE MOTEL Association of New Zealand (MANZ) has recently announced the proposal of an exciting new partnership with Hospitality New Zealand. The possible partnership is all part of the planned rebranding for MANZ.

 Peter Nash, president of the Motels Association speaking on behalf of the Board of the Motel Association of New Zealand , spoke about the meeting of the two associations saying, “The meeting was very positive with a group of highly motivated people who had similar aspirations.”

One of the benefits of the potential merger between the two hospitality companies is the planned rebranding of the Motel Association of New Zealand.

Lloyd Stone, owner of Hamilton accommodation provider Arena Court Motor Lodge as well as being Vice President of the Waikato Motel Association (WMA),  had this to say about the rebranding:  There are many potentially good aspects of this partnership for accommodation providers, the merger could create one accommodation sector that includes all forms of accommodation and puts them all under one umbrella.”

 One of the ideas behind the merger is to help develop a new accommodation division in New Zealand that is similar to that which is modeled by the Australian Hotels Association. 

There is a range of advantages from the Motel Association of New Zealand’s point of view not just surrounding the rebranding but also gaining greater membership and having a greater voice for the accommodation sector of New Zealand.

 “Michael Baines the CEO of MANZ who has a link with decision makers in Wellington for accommodation in New Zealand, and already maintains a strong voice for Motel associations,” says Lloyd Stone. “If the merger goes ahead it could lead to a larger grouping together of accommodation providers and with all accommodation providers under the one umbrella this could make way for a better standards and ethics for all to work towards,” Lloyd continues.

 The team at Arena Court Motel already offers affordable quality accommodation and achieved ‘EXCELLENCE’ from Trip Advisor feedback, has quality standard of care and code of ethics to its guests but hope that a possible merger could help accommodation organizations work together to make the accommodation industry even better.

At Arena Court Motel all rooms are double-glazed and well appointed and also include air conditioning, cooking facilities, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities, with scrumptious breakfasts available, and a chargeback facility with many local restaurants.

 You can find Arena Court Motel at 21 Willoughby St, Hamilton. Lloyd and Debbie, owners of the Motel and thededicated team look forward to making your stay as comfortable as possible.
