B&B accommodation varies enormously from sumptuous, purpose built boutique "lodges" to quite modest private homes. All B&B's usually accommodate just a small number of guests.
Similar in many ways to a full Bed & Breakfast, Homestay accommodation is more like going to stay with friends. You can expect a bedroom, often with private bathroom facilities, in your host’s home.
Farmstay accommodation is often a "Homestay" on a farm where guests also get an opportunity to see something of real farm life in New Zealand. Many farmstays either offer an evening meal with the hosts or allow guests to use the farm kitchen to cook their own.

New Zealand motels provide self contained accommodation, particularly convenient to motorists and families. Mostly owner operated, you can expect a generally high standard of cleanliness, comfort and equipment. While many have full kitchens, you can expect at least some cooking facilities and a well equipped self contained bathroom. Room service breakfasts are normally available at extra cost.
Hotels in New Zealand are, with some notable exceptions, usually only found in the cities and main regional towns. The exceptions are at major tourist attractions such as Mount Cook, Waitangi and Mount Ruapehu to name just 3. Most major international hotel chains are represented in New Zealand but there are also a number of smaller, privately owned and operated hotels.
Motor Lodges and Motor Inns are also designed to be convenient for motorists. They are similar to motels in many respects but will generally have on site restaurants in place of in room cooking facilities.
