It is a wonderful country pub set in some of New Zealand's loveliest wine growing country - the pub is modernised but still has that wonderful country feel. The food was sensational - the best fish and chips we have had for a long time - there were more upmarket dishes on the menu but my old fashioned shrimp cocktail and the fish with crunchy chips hit the mark 100% - the garden is gorgeous with various animals to fascinate not only the children - all in all, it is a great country pub with excellent facilities and food - dont miss going to the Wairarapa and dont miss eating here - a great place to stop after visiting the weird and wonderful Castle Point.

Room Tip: We didnt stay but I have seen the rooms and they look lovely

We stayed at the Tin Hut as a group of 7. The configuration is perfect for groups with 4-5 bedrooms and 2 shared bathrooms. Comfortable and country charming. The wood burner was cranking on arrival which made settling into our business of having a good time real easy. Breakfast was a treat as was the $10 Bloody Mary which i would recommend to anyone to was playing pool until 3am. The host was outstanding taking my 4 star rating to 5.

Room Tip: Perfect for groups but because of configuration may not like sharing with an unknown.

Came here on my way around Wairarapa...the pub was very nice, a warm fire burning, friendly staff and a nice glass of Shiraz. Didn't stay the night as I had to get going but for the price the rooms are lovely.

I'd stay here on my next visit.

The Tin Hut accommodation is located on the first floor of the Tin Hut hotel/restaurant. It is located right on a noisy main road between Featherston and Greytown. The rooms are charmingly decorated, but can't hid some of more 'historic' elements of this place.

A room is $80 a night, and the apartment is $140 (2 bedrooms, and a living area, with a small kitchenette, but no bathroom/toilet).

I really have to state something that is not obvious on the website - the apartment and rooms have no attached bathrooms nor toilet. There is 1 shared bathroom (with shower/bath), a standalone shower room, and 1 toilet for all 4 rooms, including the apartment. The toilet is located in the laundry, where the staff also appear to do their laundry! The laundry/toilet and bathrooms are all located on the same corridor as the bedrooms - so bring a bathrobe for the walk!

The access to the rooms is tricky - you have an internal flight of stairs, but you can't use those when the pub is shut. Instead you need to use some rickety old, steep, external stairs. Also the back door never seemed to lock properly.

The hotel is well positioned for sun, but I suspect it would require a lot of heating in winter, given the age of the building.

The beds are small and old fashioned...really not made for two people! The rooms really are charming in the way they are furnished, but the lack of toilet/bathroom is a bit of deal breaker.

Breakfast - you need to confirm you want breakfast, by 8.30pm the previous evening. If you don't, it's a case of hoping in your car and driving 10 min to the nearest cafe (or having your own breakfast in the apartment if you brought the ingredients).

Meanwhile the downstairs restaurant is great, with wonderful food is a pretty space. There are also lots of outdoor gardens for eating/drinking. The staff work hard, and really were charming and professional, and nothing seemed to be a problem. They also serve great coffee.

In summary I really liked staying here, and apart from the toilet/bathroom deal breaker, it was a lovely place to stay.

Room Tip: The apartment probably offers the best value
