Warm southern hospitality, great traditional cooking fare, and comfortable and cosy accommodation - that’s the magic of the Waiau Hotel.
Our historic country hotel opened in 1909 and has 25 rooms, including six with ensuites. We are able to accommodate up to 54 people, seeing a steady stream of international and national visitors every year.
We offer guests a full range of quality food from three dining areas; the Hump Ridge Cafe Bar, bar/bistro dining and the main dining room. The restaurant is a real social spot with a pool table, juke box and gaming machines. The public bar/bistro sports a big screen television with SKY TV. There is a guitar and piano available for guests to use and an open fire in the bar for those cold nights. We also have a wholesale bottle store.
Our bars provide great opportunities to mix and mingle with real southern people and other visitors. And while you're here don't forget to try our famous Tuatapere sausage breakfast!
