Ikamatua Hotel


We were sight seeing a couple of weeks ago and stopped at a petrol station to fill up my son's car. Next door was this establishment named the Ikamatua Hotel. Also a pub they apparently offer accommodation to travellers. In just about every town here there is either a historical or new pub.

Linking up with Skywatch Friday and Tom's Signs.

Through your lens we get to see a Ma and Pa pub and place to stay not a hotel chain. Cool!
