The motel accommodation has been lovingly refurbished and decorated in a shabby-chic style. We’ve tried to retain and/or restore parts of the original building for use wherever possible. For example some of the original doors have been made into headboards, adding a unique touch to each room. All have ensuites and TV, with tea/coffee making facilities in most rooms. We have 8 queen rooms and 2 single rooms. Two rooms can be made inter-connecting for family or friends ‘user friendliness’.
The motel has a breakfast/meeting room where guests can enjoy continental breakfasts, read the paper or a magazine or a book while sitting in the sun. And there is a large garden area for outdoor rest and recreation, or the perfect venue for a wedding or family gathering.
Piopio is situated halfway between Hamilton and New Plymouth on State Highway 3. We’re also home to the ‘Hairy Feet’ tour (part of the Hobbit movie was filmed here), Piopio Orchards (famous for their berries and ice-creams), and Greenmount Llamas. There are also hiking and walking tracks, scenic drives, a stunning 18 hole golf course, tennis courts, rugby grounds, pony club… and so much more.
Take a walk through our main street. Visit the ‘Village Green’ in the centre of town, stroll across the road to Belle-Birds boutique clothing store, or The Crafty Pigeon gift shop (this is also the location of the local beauty-treatment rooms and hairdresser too – 3 businesses run out of the same location) where you can purchase local crafts, gifts and home-wares too. So, if you want a haircut or colour, or enjoy the bliss of a luxury facial treatment, you can make a booking here too. Then check out the ‘pre-loved’ stores in the village, and to cap it off relax in the ambience of the very popular ‘Fat Pigeon Cafe’ at the northern end of town. Adjacent to ‘Kara Park’, the cafés cuisine is world renown. It has a picturesque setting with a playground for the children, picnic tables and clean public toilets. The Piopio Cosmopolitan Club is in the village, and the Aria Cosmopolitan Club is just an easy 8-minute drive east of Piopio.
We’re just a short 20 minute drive south of Te Kuiti – ‘Shearing Capital of the World’ – and 35 minutes from the world-famous Waitomo Caves.
We look forward to welcoming you to our world when you visit us in Piopio very soon! Whether you’re visiting family or friends, here on business, or are just passing through – please stop a while. Catch your breath and enjoy the amenities, ambience and friendliness of the village folk and atmosphere that have made Piopio the warm and inviting place it has become for everyone of all ages.
