The Waingaro Hotel is just 40 minutes from Hamilton and 30 minutes from Raglan and is situated beside the reknown Waingaro Mineral Hot Springs.
Why not stop in, relax and enjoy the friendly surroundings and atmosphere of this original historic hotel.

 

The Hotel, was established in 1885 and built following the discovery of hot thermal springs bubbling out of the side of the river bank, local maori were familiar with the health giving properties of the springs and by the early eighties this also began to attract European attention.
The Hotel was also a popular stopping place for the tedious coach service from Ngaruawahia enroute to Raglan.

 

The historic hotel at Waingaro is over 100 years old and is where the stagecoach used to come to from Ngaruawahia. People went on from here in the old days by buckboard to the Waingaro Landing to catch the ferry to Raglan. It was the only way to get to Raglan in the old days.  There was no road in and the scows used to deliver supplies to the landing and the buckboard used to deliver to the hotel and local store.
The hotel is run by Lloyd and Mary, a very friendly couple.  It has many pictures and history inside, Mary's meals are also very  very good.
Next door are the hot pools with bumper boats, hydra slide and private baths with 2 large swimming pools and camping ground. Essex arms its about halfway to Raglan from Auckland on tar sealed road with a fair bit of harbour views.
