A real disappointment. The food was a joke. We ordered from the "famed" Stonegrill Menu": The "Chicken" was supposed to be served with Peanut Satay Sauce. All we got was three minuscule strips of chicken on a hot stone. No Satay sauce (had to ask for it an when it came it was in a tiny little cup). Honestly there would not have been more than 100 grams of chicken. That was it. $20??? What a rip off.
Never ever will be gong there agin.

Very disappointing the web site did not say restaurant was not open every night.
Room small but lovely room with a view of the sea - amazing would come back again very soon
This is an amazing part of New Zealand - relaxing, quite, and truly beautiful - definitely a must to visit

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.
