We stayed the night before our friends daughters wedding as accommodation in Pukekohe was fully booked. Not knowing what to expect we dined on the way at Rangiriri Hotel which always does a great value meal, but upon arriving at Tuakau township we find quite a variety of meal options, including a restuarant at the Tuakau Hotel. Built in 1875 and recently fully refurbished in the appropriate era, this is truly a Grand Hotel. The parking facilities under camera surveilance, presentation of exterior very welcoming. The office was closed but had been advised to collect key to room from bar, the staff were fully informed and welcoming, excellent personalities, in a well equiped environment. Upstairs we went to our Hotel suite. Sensor lights in hallway, beautiful decorations of period wallpaper and wainscotting, our room door opened into a very top class boutique bedroom with ensuite. Totally not what we had expected from rural South Auckland. The only slight negative was the outside security lighting was too bright. The rooms need blackout window treatments. We will stay there again and highly recommend others to do so, and experience the whole dining and staying to enjoy all facilities.
