The Horeke Hotel is the oldest surviving pub in New Zealand. The oldest part dates from around 1833, It might not have had a liquor license, but it served the many ship builders working in the first commercial shipbuilding yard in New Zealand, established in 1826, which was situated right beside where the pub now stands. It is located on the waterfront of the Hokianga Harbour in the Far North District.
Nowadays the Horeke Hotel is fully licenced with its own Restaurant,Bar, Cycle Trail Services and Accommodation including a 1924 built “ House on the Water“built out over the beach, newly refurbished with 4 double bedrooms and all bedrooms have their own tiled bathrooms.
It is a great place to recharge the batteries, and simply enjoy the moment. From here you have easy access to an exciting variety of activities, there is plenty to see or do, or just sip a glass of wine on our balcony and soak in the picturesque view and relax after a long cycle.
