Can anybody tell me whether the NZ bed sizes are the same as those in the USA? I've seen at least one post that indicated that they were named differently than in the UK. We're curious about whether it is worthwhile to bring our sheets, etc.

I'm also curious about what the "typical" bed size is in NZ. When we visited in 1985, most of the hotels gave us two single/twin beds for my wife and I. In the USA, we would most likely have gotten a queen or king size bed by default. Maybe this is one reason why NZ has a relatively small population?
