Heritage Trail

Nottingham Castle Hotel
The Nottingham Castle Hotel is located by the roundabout on Thames Street.
The Waitoa Road board was formed in 1875.  As it did not have access to a suitable room in which to hold its meetings Mr Joseph John Wood was approached about the matter of providing a hotel.  This he consented to and built the Nottingham Castle in 1877 on the present site out of timber from the old Cambridge Bridge, utilising gin cases to make partitions.  Mr Wood was a native of Nottingham in England hence the hotel was so named.
This is one of the historic buildings on the Heritage Trail.
