We headed to the caves on Friday night and stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment as well as a room with 2 more beds. The accommodation is adequate. It was a bit cold with only a small radiator heater and no curtain on a large window. The sheets on the main bed were extremely pilled and you could not sleep directly on them as they were really bad. They should have been thrown away This accommodation was $120 per night for the apartment and an extra $60 for 2 people in the room with beds only. At $120 I would expect a little more comfort.
Anyway on to the positives
The hosts Anne and Philip were a delight. They made you feel very welcome and treated us like we were part of the extended family. They have still retained genuine old fashioned Kiwi hospitality, which is a delight.
The outdoor area around the cafe is lovely and the whole place has a relaxed and tranquil feel.
It is a place that is definitely worth visiting.
As for the caves. We all did the cave the next morning and it is a MUST. It has great formations, lots of variety and the bit of adventure with getting wet and crawling through tight spaces.
We were able to come back to our accommodation and have showers even though we would have been way past checkout time in a more touristy place.
This is something that you should put on your To Do list.
It will not disappoint.
