Compare hotels and accommodation types to find the right fit

When it comes to accommodation, not everyone has the same needs. Some prefer to have a fully serviced room in a central location, while others want a more authentic local experience. Luckily, there’s a style to suit everyone. Here are just a few of the options available via the filters in our comparison service.


luxury hotel room that can be found by comparing hotels

Generally, hotels rooms are fully serviced with toiletries, linen and other everyday essentials, and are perfect for both sightseers and those travelling for business.

Hotels are usually a convenient choice, due to their other onsite facilities, which may consist of day spas, pools, gyms, bars, restaurants and room service.


great apartments that can be found when you compare hotels

Apartments are often slightly larger than hotel rooms, usually coming with bedrooms separate from the living area, a lounge room and a kitchen. They may be suitable for travellers who want the comforts of a hotel, but don’t necessarily need additional services such as front desk support, in-house restaurants or tour booking services.

Bed and breakfasts

A room within a house that is often privately owned, bed and breakfasts (B&Bs) are popular among couples looking for a short getaway. As its name suggests, B&Bs owners usually offer breakfast to their guests as a standard feature.

Travellers looking for a home away from home can opt to stay in a guest house. Often situated in local neighbourhoods, guesthouses are fantastic for travellers who want to immerse themselves within the everyday culture of the destination they’re visiting.

Often found off highways, motels are generally targeted towards customers who are travelling by car and require short-term accommodation. While a motel’s interior layout may appear similar to a hotel room, its entry doors tend to face the car park instead of a designated lobby.


beautiful hostel to prove that comparing hostels is worth doing

Hostels are lower-budget, shared accommodation suitable for students, backpackers and other budget travellers. Typically comprising of bunk-bed rooms and a communal bathroom, hostels are great for travellers who need basic accommodation and amenities, while looking to mingle with other globetrotters.
