In Australia hotels come in all shapes and sizes, so finding something to suit your needs should be fairly easy. The cities in particular have hotels which range from small guest houses to the larger, more luxurious accommodations. The people of Australia have a reputation for being open and friendly, so no matter which option the visitor chooses, they can be sure of a warm welcome.

Visitors will find that a number of the larger Australia hotels are happy to exchange currency for them. The local currency is the Australian Dollar (AUD), but most shops and businesses will accept credit card payments.Cards such as MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Diners Club are widely accepted.

It is entirely up to the guest whether or not they choose to tip while in Australia hotels. It is not expected and a service charge is generally not added to the bill in hotels and restaurants. If eating in a more luxurious establishment it has become common practice to leave a tip of around 10%. It should be noted that staff will not generally fawn over customers although they are very helpful. Australia has earned a reputation as a very relaxed nation and all people are treated equally.

Australia hotels also include a growing number now that are being developed very close to the national parks. These are intended for those who want to get away from it all and who want to get closer to these beautiful natural areas. No matter where tourists choose to stay, there is always plenty to see and do in Australia. From the world famous man-made landmarks of Sydney to the natural attraction of Uluru, or Ayer's Rock, in the centre of the country, the beauty of the country will take your breath away.

Some of the Australia hotels may be familiar to visitors. This is because many of the world's leading hospitality companies and hotel chains are already well established in the country, with properties in all the major cities and a number of popular tourist destinations inland.
