My wife & I stayed here overnight. The old Post Office in this sleepy little town has been attractively & thoughtfully converted to provide very comfortable accommodation. Deb, our friendly and helpful host, is a very talented cook. Both we, and the other guests all thoroughly enjoyed the fruits of this skill both at dinner and for the sumptuous breakfast.... More

On our way home South from 10 days in Northland we came upon The Old Post Office Guest House. Situated in a sleepy little town we were delighted to find there was one double room left in this charming spot. Not an en suite, but we had our own private bathroom so that was no problem. Beautifully furnished and set... More

We were so pleased we chose the Old Post Office! Deb was the best hostess and went out of her way to feed us as we had arrive on an Auckland holiday and all the dining places nearby were closed.

Hi, thank you for your review! I am so glad that you did enjoy your stay, and it was no trouble at all to cook something for you. I have been given some more heritage roses (much to Kevin's disgust) so hopefully the garden will be even prettier next spring. Take care and I hope your summer is good. Cheers,... More

First, imagine that you are in a real old post office, a hundred years ago. It's so pretty, amazing, a travel inside my travel. Everything's made with passion, like an old book. Breakfast : imagination and hand made delicious local produces. Thanks Deb.

My wife and I stayed at the Old Post Office B&B in February 2015. We highly recommend it. The only reason it did not get 5 stars was the bathrooms were not en suite. Deb, the hostess, offered to prepare dinner because there was no restaurant open in Paparoa when we arrived. She was attentive to my wife's gluten sensitivity.... More

I had been in this old P.O. as a boy and even though the Postmaster was kind he did not offer what we received in accommodation as a B/B. Truly a wonderful place to stay, best B/B in a long time and what,s more fussed over by a wonderful mine-hostess. Thankyou ..we will return !!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An historic old kauri post office, circa 1903. Enjoy the charm of old NZ, watch native kereru (wood pigeon) from the deck while you breakfast on home grown fruit and homemade muesli, preserves and toast.The rooms range from the OLd Postmaster's suite with its own street entrance and bathroom right next to the bedroom and the ability to close it off from the rest of the BnB to the double Garden room opening onto the rear garden or the simply pretty yellow cream single room.Borrow the kayaks and paddle the local river from The Landing, or stroll around some of the scenic walks. 5 Kms from the famous Matakohe kauri museum. Play golf on a local 9 hole course, arrange a tour around the local olive grove or fish from the Pahi wharf. Organise a fishing trip and return to a tasty home cooked dinner. The Cruiser bar and grille is only a 5 minute walk away and the local pub is noted for its friendliness, local colour and bar meals! ... more   less
