Cancellation Policy

All rates displayed are in New Zealand dollars and are inclusive of taxes.

All prices quoted are per person, per night, unless otherwise stated.

Double and Twin rooms sleep two people, but may be booked for one person only. In this circumstance, the room rate will apply.

We adopt dynamic pricing and the price of our rooms, products and services fluctuates based on demand and other factors. Before confirming a reservation or purchase, we will provide you with a total price for the requested number of rooms and nights, together with the charges for any additional products or services you may have added. Depending on the room rate selected, payment may be due at the time the reservation is made through our site or at a later date, such as upon check-in at the relevant Haka Lodge location (“the Lodge”). Prices are subject to change without notice, and all persons are obliged to pay the overnight price current at the time of reservation.

Payment of the full booking amount is due on check-in. This payment will be taken from the credit card registered to the booking unless otherwise organised.

Haka Lodge is not responsible for currency conversion and therefore any questions regarding currency conversion must be directed to your credit card company.

If you have not arrived within one hour of reception closing, we reserve the right to charge the first night of your booking to the card registered to your booking.

A credit card surcharge of 2% for Visa and Mastercard will apply to all payments made.

All reservations must be guaranteed with a valid credit card at time of booking. A deposit is not required, except for bookings over $300, which will be charged the first night’s payment at time of booking. This is refundable for cancellations made 48 hours before arrival date. Agent and advance rate group bookings may also require a deposit. Please inquire directly.

We pre-authorise all credit cards on the day of booking to check for validity and sufficiency of funds. Please note this process validates the presented credit card, and protects both the cardholder and merchant from increasing fraud incidents. The pre-authorised amount of NZ$1 is set aside by the credit card company for a period of up to 10 days. The pre-authorisation will affect your available funds and/or spending limit. For more information on this practice we suggest the cardholder contact their card issuer. No money is taken from your credit card but it will show as a ‘Pending Transaction’ and you may choose to use a different payment type to pay your final bill.

The Cancellation policy is the same for all properties.

The Flexible 1-day (24 hours) Cancellation Policy is the most standardised policy.

Flexible Rates – 1-Day Cancellation:

The guest can cancel free of charge until one day (24 hours before 1400 NZT on the arrival day). After that, the guest will be charged the cost of the first night for each room/bed booked if they cancel within one day of arrival.

Full payment is taken 1 day prior to the guest checking in. Therefore, if cancellation occurs, a refund may need to be processed.

Non-Refundable Rates:

The guest will be charged the total amount for their stay if they cancel a non-refundable booking at any time.
Full payment is taken upon confirmation of the reservation.

No shows:
No refund for no shows, guests are liable for the full amount of the booking.

Cancellation exceptions: Grace period: No fees charged for bookings cancelled within 1 hour of making the booking.

Changes: Any change to the arrival date, departure date or room type of this reservation is subject to the Lodge’s availability at the time the change is requested and may result in a possible rate change or an additional fee.

Non-refundable bookings have no option to cancel or receive a refund at a later date. Bookings made via an online agent such as Booking.com, Expedia or Ctrip must be cancelled by the guest via this agent before Haka Lodge is able to formally cancel the booking.

Haka Lodge will operate within the Consumer Guarantees Act & Fair Trading Act.

We may cancel your reservation at any time with immediate effect by giving you written notice (which includes email) if you do not pay us when you are required to do so or you breach your contract with us in any other material way. If we cancel your reservation where you are at fault, we reserve our legal rights in respect of your breach of contract.

We may also cancel your reservation if an event outside of our control (including industrial action, acts of terrorism, explosion, earthquakes, fire, flooding, and failure of power and/or water supplies or emergency evacuation) means that we are unable to make your room available to you. In such event we will contact you to let you know as soon as possible and if you have already paid for your room, we will refund your payment to you, or if you have not yet paid for your room, you will not have to make any payment to us.

Save as set out above, we will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations that is caused by an event outside of our control. Such limitation of liability does not affect your statutory rights.

A reservation of four rooms or more is usually considered a group booking and cannot be made through our site. For group bookings please email reservations@hakalodge.com.
