We booked a cabin, with a double bed in the living area and a bunk bed in the bedroom. Everything was immaculately clean and tidy, including the communal showers/toilets. The playground had nice, well looked after equipment in including a trampoline which is a winner with our 3 year old! We also stayed her about 4 years ago using one of the campervan powered sites. We had plenty of space around us - not rammed in like some sites. Will go back if we ever make it back to NZ

The staff were very welcoming and knowledgable. They suggested a free unmissable bush walk at the Ruakuri Scenic Reserve that our family really enjoyed. This park had clean facilities and was one of our favourites.

We stayed in one of the en-suite cabins just as a one night stopover. We were greated by a very pleasent man in the reception that was very polite and knowledable of the area and the different activities around.
When we went to our very reasonably priced cabin we could see that the grounds were very well kept and the facilities were in a good position in the camp. Very nice pool area, but the weather wasnt the best to try it out.
The cabin was very nice inside and out. The bed was perfectly made and the room was decorated well. We couldnt fault the cleanliness of the bathroom, which is fantastic. You can normally find some tiny faults if you try but not here.
The Park is in a perfect location, beautifull scenery from the cabins and over the road you can find a restaurant, shop and possibly the most helpful tourist infomation center I have ever been to.
For those on a budget, the Footwhistle glow worm tour is awesome.

Room Tip: the en-siute rooms are perfect if you have a couple of extra dollars to treat yourself. good prices.

We paid $190 per night n i think the room isint exactly worth its value of money. As a tourist, this would be our first time coming here and after our last motel, this is a huge contrast as our last motel was excellent. Cleanliness was fine except that the dishes had left over crusty remains on them. Also, the water controlling system really needed improvement. Overall, we still think the cost is quite high(the highest among all the motels we have been to) and it needs improvement

This Top10 park is located right across the street of Spellbound and the tourist center.
It has nice little cottages and clean shared bathrooms. It also offers a kitchen to cook in, a BBQ outside and in the little shop across the street you can find everything basic for a meal.
It also has a swimming and a whirl pool on site.
Unfortunately the wifi costs something but if you stay a little longer than 1 night it is maybe worth it.

Hello Petr,
Thank you for taking the time to review our Holiday Park, describing nicely some of our accommodation and amenities. Yes, the company that operates the Internet access charges NZD 5.00 per hour; this service is offered independently from our Park.

Great holiday park. Nice, clean and well the premium charged.

They have extra facilities on site, such as hot pool and a great kids play park.

We've been to several Top 10 parks on our travels and some frankly don't deserve to bear the name. All is great at Waitomo though.

Hello Petr,
Thank you for commenting on our Holiday Park. We are glad you liked it and hope that you were also happy with the attractions in Waitomo Caves Village. All the TOP 10 Parks are individually owned but the standards should be high. I trust that the owners would be interested to know if their park does not fulfill the expectations of their guests.
Kind Regards
Walter
