We decided to take a Sunday drive to Whangamomona as I have always wanted to go to the pub and have a look. The drive out was beautiful and not half as bad as I expected. We passed a lot of tourists in campervans. It...More

We thought th hotel was great -good atmosphere of a typical old country NZ pub; but would not stay again because we felt the accommodation was overpriced. Cost was $150 for the night ($75pp) but that was with shared bathroom facilities and nothing in room except the beds basically - so a bit steep esp when u make comparisons. Also it's pretty noisy unless u get a room right at th bac. I would stop in again for a drink or lunch
