Perfect location for caves”

Location, dining (basic but great flavour), friendly staff

Great stay. We are reviewing this as a basic motel, which is the accommodation provided. Basic, clean, great access to caves and beautiful surrounding countryside. Take a walk and meet the local ostriches, horses and alpacas.

Self Drive Holiday”

Convenient location for Waitomo Caves, clean and well maintained, friendly and attentive staff.

Overnight stay following flight into Auckland and visit to the Glow worm Caves. Very comfortable bed, good food in the restaurant, clean and warm rooms. Extensive roadworks are currently taking place out the front, but the noise wasn't noticeable in our room. Don't let appearances deceive you, the exterior looks dated, but the rooms are clean, well maintained and recently refurbished.

Waitomo Stay”

I enjoyed my stay. I recommend it for the following reasons: 1. The manager went out of her way to make sure I had everything I needed, and provided her own guide on attractions I could see and do. 2. The view from my room was amazing. 3. It is located on a main road so it was easy to get to places outside of Waitomo. 4. Good facilities. The bed was very comfortable.

The staff were friendly and helpful upon checkin and checkout. The place itself is nearby the cave activities and right on be main road, just south of a town for food and other needs. The place itself however is very dated and in need of renovation. It was a little dingy with a musty smell but overall clean.
