Take a break with us at the Post Office Hotel, Pahiatua.

Here you can really spread out and relax.

There is a large outdoor parking area, entertainment and accommodation, at a reasonable price. And our in-house family restaurant,  Apache Jack’s on Main Street, provides country-sized meals and a range of dining areas, both inside and out.

The Post Office Hotel has everything a good sports bar provides.  Good country sized meals and most major sports live, with full service TAB, darts, pool and gaming.

Everything is under one roof.  For locals and travelers, the Post Office Hotel is a welcome oasis, on SH2.

The Post Office Hotel was erected in July 1894 and was a two-story wood and iron building. Fire gutted the structure on 17 July 1978, but an annexe was saved and operated as a tavern until a new complex was built in 1980.
