Featherston, It Hides A Gem

Featherston has a certain reputation, especially with those that live on this side of the hill. For most Wellingtonians it's the "end of the Remutaka Crossing, onto the flat and into the Wairarapa." It's also not a place to really stop coz, "what's there?", and "the locals are a bit rough".

Well, if it's not Featherston Booktown Festival time may I suggest that the next time you pop over stop and have lunch at The Royal Hotel.

It's quite the photogenic glory from a time long gone but immaculately presented. I had massive Agatha Christie feelings when I went there, truly sumptuous.
