Who are we?

Central Reservations was founded in Lincoln, Canterbury in 2003, to meet the requirements of the Inbound Tourist Trade on one side and newly constructed apartments on the other. The business was sold and relocated to Gisborne, New Zealand in 2015.  Central Reservations has established itself to be a trusted and reliable accommodation service and over the years, the business has searched and sourced a wide range of high quality accommodation covering all regions throughout this beautiful country of New Zealand.

What do we do?

CRNZ is an accommodation service provider that works with a wide network of international and well-known New Zealand travel businesses, to provide a place to stay for local and overseas holidaymakers.  CRNZ has a fabulous range of high quality apartments, hotels, motels and bed and breakfast suppliers who were carefully selected for their location, quality and personal service.  We are continuing to expand our property range with the aim of covering all of New Zealand with a choice of accommodation.  The new website centralres.co.nz not only provides an online booking service but also information about each of our properties and the regions in which they are located in.  Whether you are on holiday, a business trip, visiting family or friends or attending a special event, centralres.co.nz provides you with a great range of accommodation options.
