The Real Country Kiwi Escape

The Awakino Hotel boasts 110 years of local history. Located on the border of Taranaki and Waikato it is in the middle of all you need. Pristine waters filled with big snapper and whitebait, and native bush filled with pigs, deer and goats. Whether you're in a hammock, on a boat or have been out in the bush, the Awakino Hotel is your social spot, watering hole or second kitchen.

We have affordable, family-friendly accommodation. The kitchen, bottle store and bar are going all day, every day, because who knows when you'll reach your fish quota or run out of beers at your bach!? We have regular bands, quiz nights, Sky Sports, Fishing and hunting club BBQs, Pool nights and more.

Whether you're hunting, fishing, whitebaiting, holidaying or driving past, stop in for a hearty meal and a beverage. You won't be disappointed.

Well behaved dogs and children welcome.
