For 130 years Commercial Hotel, beside the Northern Wairoa River, has been welcoming travellers to rest and enjoy its many facilities. This heritage-listed hotel is a beautiful two-storey building with long verandas overlooking a broad sweep of the river and surrounding countryside. Upstairs are ensuite and share-facility rooms, a guest lounge, fireplace and TV. Downstairs is a spacious polished kauri-floored dining room where breakfast is served and evening meals can be arranged. Adjoining this is a smaller dining room with French doors opening onto a sheltered garden. There is a large commercial kitchen available for special occasions. An additional lounge, which used to be the old bar from the tavern days, is now home to a piano, pool table, dartboard, library, TV and fireplace for winter evenings.
