We're celebrating our place and our people.


We want to inspire New Zealanders to come and explore the undiscovered Kaipara just 1.5hrs north of Auckland and enjoy it’s raw, wild and unpolished beauty


And thank you Gary, otherwise known as Crabman (he used to do crabs), for providing fresh flounder & oysters straight from the harbour every week to serve in our restaurant.


– Spring Special –

September and October (excl. labour weekend)

Come and stay! Book 2 nights & pay for 1.

 Just $100 for 2 nights for a comfy self-contained Hotel Room with a brand new bed & quality bed linen.

We're small & family friendly (pets too!)

We’ve only got five rooms! So get a group together and book out the whole Hotel.

Just say "Crabman" when you make your booking!
