Wellington Accomodation - RWC 2011


I'm attempting to book some form of accom in Wellington for the opening weekend 9th - 12th Sep to watch Wales v Boks but am running into brick walls. I understand that the main hospitality arm of RWC have block booked hotels etc but they have to release unsold rooms for sale to the general public fairly soon?

I've mailed the Wellington Tourist Board for info without response but I imagine they're inundated. Does anyone have any info on release of rooms or has anyone out there had any success, if so any tips would be gratefully received.

Are you prepared to stay in the suburbs and commute into the city by bus or train. If so I can check out the local motels to ascertain what accomodation they have. My suburb is Johnsonville which is 10km north of Wellington on the train.

We booked a cottage in Paekakariki for 3 nights through holidayhomes.co.nz for 3 nights for the AUS/USA game in Wellington. The hosts told us it's about a 30min train ride into town. We've found most of our accomodations through this website and pretty much have everything booked for next year.

Thanks for the responses folks, very much appreciated. Had a response from the tourist board which was encouraging. Rest of my party are hoping to stay within the city, have told them to expect inflated prices as it's the RWC after all.

I think I'll try and talk them round so may be in touch again beanb, and cheers PT, the website is a good find as well so thanks, hope you enjoy the trip a much as I'm planning too!

Most of my trip is sorted, just got a few things to sort to bring it all together.

Look at www.roomsdirect.co.nz

They have many options for the dates that you require, some quite central but many a little out of the centre of wellington.
