    There aren't many hotels in downtown Waitomo. We found this to have the best reviews, and they were right. It's a small B&B with 8 rooms. The owners were very nice and very helpful in suggesting caves to check out, including free walks to do....More

    Sorry about the noise next door. Luckily this isn't usually a problem as guests tend to be 'caved-out' by the end of the day and most turn in early.

    Thanks for the review. We do try to find the best deals for the caving experience of our guests. There is a lot more choice between different companies than most people realise.

    We do not see any reviews until they are published on Trip Advisor. It may have been misplaced so may need to be redone.

    Hi, phone 06478787641 or google waitomo caves guest lodge and get to our site that way. Trip advisor does not allow us to put our website link here as they want us to pay for extra services from them!!!
