We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the caves. There were 7 of us in our group, 3 adults and 4 children but we were easily accommodated in the 3 bedrooms, each of which had a useful combination of beds. The 2 toilets and 2 showers were also very helpful for a big group. This is a great option for staying in with kids with lots of space to play and run around outside while also checking out the animals. Narita spent a good amount of time showing us around and letting the kids feed and interact with the animals - they especially loved the 7 naughty piglets! I particularly loved the way Narita learned the kids names and chatted with them telling them lots about the farm. Also, when I realised I had left something important behind when we got home, Narita went out of her way to locate it and posted it back straight away - so helpful and understanding. We hope to stay again in the future.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Waitomo Farmstay and Gardens was started in October 2011 when we recognised that not everyone looking for Waitomo accommodation was a thrill seeker! Waitomo Farmstay and Gardens is a family owned business, and has something for everyone. Waitomo Farmstay is the perfect spot to make your base during your stay in the King Country. Our large and comfortable rustic cottage has lovely country views, and the farm tour we offer our guests is sure to entertain. Because we are are situated only a short car ride from the world famous Glow Worm Caves, and the townships of Otorohanga and Te Kuiti it makes sense that you should book your stay at our Waitomo Farmstay and Gardens today! If you are just passing through the King Country be sure to come and see our Gardens which are currently under development. We are slowly gathering a collection of vintage farm machinery and other items of interest which we plan to showcase amongst the trees and flowers of our gardens. We gladly accept any suggestions, donations, or voluntary work - and are more than happy to acknowledge this within the gardens. We cater to all ages - so why not pack a picnic and take some time to meet our friendly animals and take a gentle stroll around our gardens. We look forward to meeting you! ... more less
