Expedia, who are the merchant of record on the hotel booking don't provide tax invoices with a GST number.

You are able to  print a receipt of your booking here , but it won’t break out the tax component, only the information provided by the property which includes taxes and fees as part of the room rate. 

More information and Expedia’s reason for this can be found under Prepaid Hotel Reservations under Expedia's Terms and Conditions, which were agreed to before proceeding with your booking:

You acknowledge that except as provided below with respect to tax obligations on the amounts we retain for our services, we do not collect taxes for remittance to applicable taxing authorities.

The tax recovery charges on prepaid hotel transactions are a recovery of the estimated taxes (e.g. sales and use, occupancy, room tax, excise tax, value added tax, etc.) that we pay to the hotel supplier for taxes due on the hotel's rental rate for the room. The hotel suppliers invoice us for certain charges, including tax amounts.

The hotel suppliers are responsible for remitting applicable taxes to the applicable taxing jurisdictions. We do not act as co-vendors with the Supplier with whom we book or reserve your travel arrangements.

Taxability and the appropriate tax rate vary greatly by location. The actual tax amounts paid by us to the hotel suppliers may vary from the tax recovery charge amounts, depending upon the rates, taxability, etc. in effect at the time of the actual use of the hotel by you. We retain service fees as additional compensation in servicing your travel reservation. Service fees retained by us vary based on the amount and type of hotel reservation.

You can earn Airpoints Dollars on every hotel booking you make on the Air New Zealand website. You can't currently redeem your Airpoints Dollars™ for a hotel booking.

We add these Airpoints Dollars to your account at the end of each month, once you've completed your hotel stay. If you booked a hotel with a ‘pay later’ option where you paid at the hotel, please allow 35 days following check-out for this to be credited to your account.

If your expected Airpoints Dollars don't appear in your account, you can make a claim up to six months later. Just complete a Missing Airpoints Claim form. Include any supporting documents to help us verify your claim with the relevant hotel or rental car company.

Hotels often have different bed arrangement for different numbers of occupants.

Common room descriptions are:

  • Single - a single bed (one person)
  • Twin - two single or double beds (up to two people)
  • Double - a queen-sized bed (up to two people)
  • Triple - usually a queen-sized and a single bed, or a queen-sized bed and a fold-out couch or rollaway bed (up to three people)
  • Quad - usually a queen-size bed and two singles, or one single and a fold-out couch or rollaway bed (up to four people).

The price advertised may be the total cost for the room or the cost per person, so it's best to check at the time of booking.

If you would like to know what size bed you’ll be in for the night, it's best to contact your hotel directly.
