We stayed in a one bedroom unit. The rooms are well designed for families, as there is a separate room with two twin beds for the children, with the king size bed, lounge and kitchenette in the same room. Clean and tidy and very comfortable stay. Would definitely stay again.

Room was well equipped with a microwave, small refrigerator etc. It was a good location for an early morning tour at the Waitomo cave but be aware that not all rooms have air conditioning! It was quite warm when we stayed so pay attention to the booking if this matters to you.

We are a couple with a two years old child. Our tour agent booked us into a room with spa bath. The unit had two rooms. The main room had a king size bed and a mini kitchnette with stove and full set of cutlery. It also had another room with two single beds. It had a big spa.

Good place to spend the night if you’re visiting the Waitomo Caves. Nothing fancy but really clean and fairly quiet. The receptionist could be a little more welcoming and there wasn’t a lot of kitchenware to cook with.

"We stayed in room 11 - well away from the road, view of the trees and river."
"Rooms at the back of the hotel furthest from the road would be the most quiet."
"Large room that backed out onto the bush with large bifold doors leading out onto a good sized balcony."
"We enjoyed the passing trains but you could ask for a room away from the track, if you wish."
