5 hotels near Hordern Pavilion to crash at after a gig

Got a big gig at The Hordern and don’t want to brave the crowds coming home? Stay in a nearby hotel instead.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

It’s no secret that Hordern Pavillion is not the most convenient location to head to for an event. There are buses to Central or Wynyard train stations, or parking on-site, but it’s on the pricier side. That’s about it, so getting home after a gig can be tough.

Save yourself the stress and book accommodation close to the venue. You’ll be relaxing much sooner than the rest of the exiting crowd, and won’t have to fight for a squished place on the bus.
