On our trip "Up North" to Cape Reinga booked at the Opononi knowing little about it apart from its geographic location about half way from Auckland to the Cape. Drive there was great and the final view over Hokianga Harbour was spectacular and very much a surprise. Drove past the hotel thinking it was not near the pub and again surprised when we stopped. Limited rooms and I was a bit dubious at first until the room was opened. Beautifully appointed and fresh. Beach themed furnishings but very skeik. Bathroom substantial and the water hot.... a must for me. Bed was very comfortable. Three of us sat on the small verandah overlooking the car park and it was surprisingly quiet despite the comings and goings. We had wine and cheese there for a few hours so had it been otherwise than quiet that would not have happened. We did not go to the restaurant (Boar and Marlin) in the 'pub' but the menu was extensive and offered a range of seafood - as you would expect - and also pastas, steaks etc. If I do this trip again I shall be staying here when I do.

Room Tip: My room abutted the hotel car park but it was very quiet and I would suggest staying on that side.

A nice location with the story of the dolphin Opo from the 1950's; sweet museum with a film about the dolphin. Hotel had noisy roof (rats? Cats?) scratching all night. Great view of the bay. Dinner was the hot stone grill which was unique & delicious (lamb & beef). Odd restaurant hours. Rooms pretty basic with coffee and refrig. Nice staff.

We were not staying here but wanted somewhere to go out for dinner.

Service was very friendly here and totally professional.

The food was very nice, although it took a bit of time to get to us.

We noticed that our waitress was also serving behind the bar and we asked her about it at the end of the night when we were settling our bill.

Turned out that two people were off sick and she was covering for one them as well. With her lovely smile and friendly attitude we would never have otherwise known - you would never know how run off her feet she must have been.

What an asset to the business.

Rooms where hotel style so a bit small with only a kettle and fridge as you would expect.
Otherwise this place was very nice to stay for a night with chilling air conditioning.
Staff very friendly and helpful ( including the cat).
Bar area with tables over the bay and not a bad restaurant either.
Not much to do in Opononi if you don't fish but good walks and base to see the forrests and Kauri trees 1, 2 and 7th largest in NZ.

Stayed: February 2017

A classic kiwi beach hotel. To be honest the staff make the place, good down to earth folk who make you feel welcome.
The rooms, while a bit small, are a lovely surprise. Fresh and clean.
Will be back for another stay.
Also you have to try the fish and chips next door!
