Summer boost for hotels

Written By miftah nugraha on Senin, 06 Mei 2013 | 19.55

HOTEL prices in Hobart rose 10 per cent this summer in a sign that demand for accommodation in Tasmania's capital is getting stronger during the event-packed warmer months.

The average cost of staying overnight in a hotel in Hobart last summer was $177.61 - 10 per cent above the rate charged in summer 2011-12.

The cost of staying in Launceston was also higher this year but the price hike was a more modest 2 per cent ($137.66 up from $134.98 in 2011-12).

Anecdotal evidence from Hobart's hospitality sector backs up the HotelsCombined data released today.

In early January it was reported that visitors looking for a bed in Hobart were heading out to the suburbs because there were no available rooms left in the city.

The Old Woolstore and the Grand Chancellor in Davey St were both fully booked for weeks as visitors lingered after the Taste of Tasmania and New Year's celebrations.

Hobart currently boasts between 3000 and 5000 rooms and the cost of sleeping in one rose more here this summer than in Sydney, Melbourne, the Gold Coast, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide.

However, the tourism spoils are not being shared equally around the nation.

While hotels were in demand in major cities this summer, non-metro destinations fell out of favour.

Four of the five cities recording the biggest price falls were in Australia's regions.

The cost of a hotel room in Newscastle in summer this year was down 15 per cent on the year before.

The Australian Hotel Price Trend report shows that globally, Dubai recorded the biggest increase in the amount hotels charged for an overnight stay in summer 2012-3 (33 per cent).

Los Angeles, Nha Trang in Vietnam, Honolulu and Nadi in Fiji also recorded price rises of more than 25 per cent.
