Puhoi Hotel, Puhoi

 Puhoi is a fascinating backwater (literally on an undeveloped estuary), only 40 minutes north of central Auckland. The hotel is rural and rustic, we had a real feeling of stepping back to pioneering days.
The meals were generous, tasty portions of typical pub food.

Admirals Arms Hotel, Coromandel

Coromandel is full of interesting historic buildings. The Admirals Arms dates back to the gold rush days, and we did feel as if it was still in the past.
