Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I park?

We currently have eight parking spaces and one disability accessible car park at the rear of the property. These are limited and are on a first come, first serves basis. To get there, you enter the little road in front of the Nandos and Burger Fuel, opposite Countdown and follow it round past the ANZ bank. Our car parks are labelled A, B, C, D & E and 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11.

How far are you from the Te Rauparaha Arena?

So close that you can clearly see it from some of our rooms! Even if you’re not here for an event at the arena, we can provide you with a free arena pass where you can go for a relaxing swim, treat yourself at the spa and just soak in what Porirua has to offer.


How close is The Post Hotel to restaurants and cafes?

Literally a two minute walk from whatever you fancy.

What fun things can we do in Porirua?

There’s plenty to do: Pataka museum, Te Rauparaha Arena, the library, maybe even a little shopping spree at the North City Shopping Centre.

You can wash your clothes here as we have a laundry rooms with washers and dryers and have washing powder if you need it, along with irons and ironing boards.


What about fresh towels?

We have a daily service where we replenish all your supplies, and remove all rubbish. As we want to be as eco-friendly as possible, we will only take towels that are left on the floor. We also suggest that you leave your recycling separate so our staff can help you save the planet.
