The Abseil Breakfast Inn was definitely one of my wife and I's favourite places to stay while we were in New Zealand. Our hosts, John and Helen, were welcoming and cooked us some of the best eggs I've ever had in my life!
The inn has four rooms, all of which were beautifully decorated and had a very cozy feel to them. We stayed in the Bush Room for one night and it was clean and comfortable, with our own bathroom in the room. The view of the town is really something too. The Abseil has a very elevated location, so elevated that you really have to floor your rental car to get up the little road leading to the B&B. Their sign indicating the entrance actually says, "Approach With Enthusiasm!"
If you're staying here's it's because you're probably doing some sort of activity involving the Waitomo Glow Worm Caves. If you're getting wet, John and Helen provide you with towels for your excursion and even soap to shower with afterwards. We were also able to leave our luggage there while visiting the caves and then picked our stuff up on the way out of town that day. Plus the caves are only about a three minute drive away so that's another reason to stay here.
It really was a fantastic place to base ourselves in Waitomo. We would have stayed longer just for the B&B!
