Matawai Hotel

Matawai Hotel

The building that housed the Matawai Hotel in the 2000s was originally located at Motu, where it had been built on the site of an existing hotel in 1914, when a coach road to the Bay of Plenty opened. The hotel was shifted to Matawai in 1934, two years after a new road was opened through the Waioeka gorge to Ōpōtiki.
