Tikokino Country Hotel

Hawkes Bay has a number of historic hotels scattered around. The proposed railway was the reason for the Tikokino Hotel to be built in 1864. Like nearby Ongaonga, the prospect of being on the railway line lead to a building boom, but the changed route of the railway meant both townships have dwindled to a few remaining houses. Despite this, the hotel is welcoming with ongoing restorations and a very pleasant stopping place.
