Located only a 1.5 hr drive from Auckland, the newly refurbished Waikino Hotel is a fantastic place to grab a bite to eat, drink and stay. With heart-warming hospitality and a rich history, the Waikino Hotel story is one of fire and flood, excess and prohibition, but most of all, it’s a story about connections. Connecting travellers and towns, the present with the past, and the local community with each other.

The Waikino Hotel offers a range of services for those biking the trail, from comfortable, well-appointed accommodation, a delicious menu for every time of the day, and friendly, knowledgeable staff who can make a great drink or pour you a refreshing cold one from the beer taps.

Waikino Hotel is a great place to hold events, and has many of its own regular events to look forward to, from themed dining nights and the Carnivore Club for foodies, to chilled out games nights for that mid-week break. Waikino Hotel also has pool tables, regular live music, and is situated at one of the most beautiful parts of the stunning Karangahake Gorge.
