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.

Good location near the caves. Good restaurant included as well. Rooms are quite old and not so well maintained. Shower was constantly dropping. Can be a bit loud from the street. But all in all good value for money.

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.

You have to drive about 10km to another small town for food or shopping. Near by was only around I-site centre (on the way to waitomo cave) which you would able to locate but it close at 5pm.

Dated and basic”

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.

Price, Friendly Staff, Clean Rooms

Good option out of Waitomo itself. Price is quite reasonable. Only big downside is proximity to the Highway which can make sleeping difficult if you are a light sleeper.
