Steampunk Chic
The renovated rooms in this hotel are super lux and have a bit of a steampunk vibe to them, with dark jewel tones, many clocks, and copper piping in the spacious bathroom. TV, fridge, claw foot bathtub, options for heating and a fan for cooling, and a sumptuous velvet duvet made the overnight stay super relaxing. Had a three course meal at Brac and Bow downstairs that did not disappoint. Staying here was a treat.

Will be back!
We will definitely be back and planning to return with friends. The only low point was a very busy restaurant so food took a while one evening- however it was good food!!! And advise not to try for an early night if there’s s wedding at the venue! Felt like the band was in the room- however- it was good music!!!!

10/10 Exceptional

I loved the thematic decor of the piriraku room, so quaint, finished to a high standard, beautiful architectural features with the modern conveniences. I stayed in the hotel on my own (no reception overnight and no other guests). I did have a contact number (should I need it) and I certainly did not feel unsafe, it just wasn't what I had expected or experienced before. However, I would definitely recommend and stay again.

Treat yourself !
We enjoyed a fabulous birthday weekend in the Wairapara - the refurbished Royal Hotel was the perfect place to base ourselves for two nights. It was quirky, cosy and welcoming - we loved the decor, the sense of history and the good range of dining options. The only disappointment was that we did not meet the famous dogs - maybe next year.
