Under new ownership.  Reopening Mid October 2023. 


Welcome to The Castlepoint Hotel or as the locals call it "The Whakataki". 

Whakataki translated from Te Reo means Introduction.

We are your "Introduction to the sea"

Where history abounds and the natural wonders of Castlepoint will excite you.  The welcome is warm, the beer is cold and the destination is as big as the journey. 

Our Bed and Breakfast establishment caters to all your needs with full dining and bar facilities for Guests.  Enjoy the atmosphere of our historic hotel without the hustle of a pub.  Our bar and dining room are open for all house guests Wednesday to Sunday and other times by arrangement. Guests are also welcome to self cater using our kitchen or BBQ.  The Castle is a great place for your family gathering where all the hard work is done for you.  

Stay a while in our relaxed comfortable accommodation and enjoy our good ol' Kiwi hospitality.  Surf the breaks, dive for Paua & Crayfish, play a round of golf, try your hand at tennis, walk for miles along the beach, wander the hills, take a bike ride, surfcast off the beach, swim in the lagoon, visit our iconic lighthouse and bring your camera to capture those special memories of this special place.

The surf is a short walk from the hotel and Castlepoint is 5km down the road or less along the beach.  See you soon!
