    Thanks for the review. Waitomo is definitely a great place to spend a couple of nights and we are right in the middle. Just ask for advice on what trip would be best for you.

    Reviewed March 25, 2013

    Lots of tips on where to go, home made biscuits and jam, grapes freshly picked from the pergola, comprehensive breakfast, clean and comfortable. Close to caves etc. Short walk to restaurant where I had a great steak. What more can you ask for?

    Thank you for your kind words. We're glad you enjoyed you stay with us. Unfortunately the grapes are now going over and the wasps and blackbird and thrushes are finishing them off. The next to fruit will be the feijoas ....

    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!!!
