New Zealand Bloodstock are set to add another service to their bloodstock business with the construction of a hotel, The DoubleTree by Hilton Karaka, on their Karaka property.
The South Auckland business, which already offers sales, airfreight, insurance, and finance services to the equine industry, will now offer accommodation on their sales complex, located just 20 minutes’ drive from Auckland International Airport.
With 120 guest rooms, including four suites, a restaurant and bar, along with conference facilities, the hotel offers three room types and will be set amongst the sales centre at Karaka.
“We probably talked about this five years ago, where we really don’t have any hotels in the immediate area,” MP Judith Collins said.
“With such a major part of our economy coming from the bloodstock industry it’s really important that we take care of the accommodation and also the entertainment outside the sales room.”
