Otorohanga and Waitomo Motels
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Otorohanga
Reviewed November 19, 2013

As an older female solo traveller, I like to stay in places where I feel safe and comfortable and, as I travel by bus, I need to be able to reach amenities on foot. This motel is perfect on all counts. My unit was towards the back of the motel, close to the pool, spa and playground. It was very clean and well equipped. There was free wi fi and, even though the voucher didn't last long, it was sufficient for me to check emails and send a few messages home. It wasn't a long walk in to town to the assortment of eating and shopping places. It was close to the kiwi park and the delightful museum. I didn't visit the famous caves but apparently the local taxi driver does a daily run out there for people who don't have transport. The owner of the motel was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this motel to other people and would happily stay there again.

A nice simple motel with a warm welcome. The unit we had was very clean and tidy and serviced daily. The owners were very helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We opted to have our breakfasts in the motel; we only wanted juice and toast but they were delivered at the promised time and proved very acceptable. The only minor downside is that some of the units are located on opposite side of the main road to the reception and pool and it can be tricky to cross at times - but there is always the phone provided in the room to call the reception desk. You can hear the traffic but it was not a problem for us.

Exactly what we needed on a stopover to the waitomo caves. We were warmly greeted when we arrived and offered an upgrade to a one bedroom suite. Excellent facilities to cook and enough room for everyone to spread out! Recommend for a stopover

Stayed here on the Saturday night in a family unit on the Easter long weekend. Couldn't pick up internet, only outside. Said WIFI was free but wouldn't connect. Very dated dark rooms but was clean. Bed sheets smelt old and the pillows were really hard. Room was cheap for the amount of people staying so didn't really expect much. Friendly staff and close to Otorohange so that was good but would not stay again.

Room Tip: Request a room close to the reception office for internet however had another party with us who had...
