The multi-award-winning resort, which enjoys the flexibility of being an independent accommodation operator, is not only holding prices at previously advertised rates, but is proactively discounting 25% off specific room types, with ’earlybird specials’ for those who book now.
Millbrook general manager, David Onions, said: "The Rugby World Cup’s all about showcasing New Zealand and supporting our national team, not about crass profiteering. As an independent resort we can set our own rules and don’t need or want to follow any price hike trends.
"For Millbrook Resort, the Rugby World Cup is about enticing as many international visitors, especially South Africans, Australians and English, to visit New Zealand.
"We’re offering honest Kiwi value because we want our guests to be repeat visitors to New Zealand, not just one-off ’trippers’ here for a single event. This is the ultimate opportunity to showcase our country and showcase Millbrook, our chance to shout out to the world about what we do and what we have to offer."
The earlybird specials on offer from Millbrook, available for stays between September and November 2011, will be subject to change in the countdown to the tournament.
