Welcome To The Tapawera Hotel & Hop Bar

Serving locals and travellers with comfortable accommodation and great food and ales. We've been the local pub, welcoming locals and visitors in Tapawera for over 30 years.

The new owners, Brendan, Shara and Rhys look forward to welcoming you, whether you're staying with us here in Tapawera, travelling through to Nelson or Motueka, or making a pit stop while cycling Tasman's Great Taste Cycle Trail.

The Hop Bar is proud to serve The Hop Farm Brewery beers on tap. The hops are locally grown and the beers brewed just up the road too. That's local!

Tapawera is in the Tasman District of New Zealand's South Island. Located 76 km (47 miles) southwest of Nelson, 48 km (30 miles) southeast of Motueka and 74 km (46 miles) from the Abel Tasman. It is situated on the Motueka Valley Highway (formerly SH 61) beside the Motueka River.

It is also a gateway to Kahurangi National Park, if you're thinking of exploring Mt Owen, then why not stay with us the night before your adventure?
