Our Story

Occupying a prominent position on the main street, The Royal Hotel was first run by John ‘Big Jack’ Parkinson, son of John P Parkinson (a local entrepreneur). The hotel was favoured for their meetings, while as a venue it has also played a wider role in the social life of the Opotiki community.

Original construction dates 1879 – 1880. Construction was overseen by the professional Thomas H Whites (1843 – 1923). He also remodelled the hotel in 1909. (History has been extracted from previous owners notes)
