You will never be disappointed with your decision to check out the Puketapu Hotel. Take your loved ones there for an intimate dinner. Choose a couple of bistro selections to share with your friends in the garden bar or inside by the fire. Or, suggest to your workmates (who are always disappointed in the end of year Christmas party decisions) that they might enjoy the Puketapu. It is a relaxed atmosphere in the Garden Bar and lots of people pop in for a quick stop off or to enjoy the monthly Sunday afternoon live music. Children will get to experience a country hotel, although parents are forewarned that they will be given a complimentary puppy if the kids decide to have a swim in the water feature!
Bar and Restaurant service is friendly, and is efficient even when unexpected big groups come in. Quality, fresh food in the menu selections are routine. I have re-ordered lighter meal options several times now, and they have consistently been delicious. My husband has really enjoyed the steaks and they have been cooked exactly to his preference. We have still managed to share a yummy cheesecake or ice cream to finish the evening beautifully! The wine selection matches the meals and the coffee is served hot which makes a change from the just warm coffee many baristas brew. The overall prices for a meal are very fair.
The Puketapu Hotel has recently won a Hospitality Award. Patrons return over and over again and the Award proved what we already know. The Puketapu is a great choice.
