A little bit of a challenge to find on the way into Hawera, and an adventurous little drive into the parking area, but a very warm and friendly welcome awaited.
A beautifully (if slightly over) restored build with nice gardens. Excellent indulgent service, with tea on arrival served in the lounge with all the trimming. Breakfast was everything you could every want, served with style.
If you have to stay in Hawera - treat yourself:-)
$180 for a twin room with full breakfast seemed reasonable to me, but my travelling companion thought a bit overpriced by NZ standards.
