A great spot to call home for a few nights. Visited the awesome kiwi house and went caving. This makes a great base for all activities. The facilities were clean, could book online and the hosts were very friendly.More

We're very grateful for your kind review...thank you!
We only booked for one night, but extended our stay to 5! had booked another site in Kawhia but got there and turned back to camp kiwi which was much nicer . Camp kiwi is small, quiet ( even on new years eve) has super friendly hosts - Carole and Peter. It is central to lots of activities - Waitomo, Hobbiton , some excellent walks and waterfalls. There is a large outdoor public pool opposite with an indoor gym, the kiwi house is a really nice half day visit and the morning bird song is amazing! Otorohanga is a small town with everything you need.
Keep up the fantastic work Camp kiwi!

Thank you for your feedback and extensive comments. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay!
With the main intention of visiting the Waitomo caves, we decided to stay here for a couple of nights and instantly felt so comfortable and relaxed by the beautiful park situated in an ideal location 5 minutes walk into the lovely town of Otorohanga and 10 minutes walk along the road to a huge countdown supermarket, this turned out to be the perfect place to relax in so we ended up staying an extra couple of nights! The park has 2 excellent large kitchen with all required facilities and are cleaned daily. Also a few nice private shower rooms to choose from and plenty areas to sit outside or inside and relax with a cup of tea and book if you like. There's also a large gym which you can use for only $5 for your whole stay - bargain!! The owner is also lovely and very helpful for tour info and tips for the town. If you go, we also highly recommend a visit to the local Indian restaurant in Otorohanga called Castle 91 - the best Chicken Tikka Masala I've ever had!!! The thirsty weta bar is also great in town!
Hi Laura, Really pleased you had a great stay with us. Nice to know that our local restaurants looked after you. I will let them know you enjoyed your meals with them. Many thanks for your review. All the best for your travels. Cheers Billie & Kelvin.
I stayed in a holiday park in Waitomo the last time I went to the Caves, but this was far better. Super clean, nice facilities and mega friendly staff. Unlimited hot water in a really clean shower! The only thing that wasn't the best was the trains passing at night, but no biggie. We'd still choose this one for sure if we were staying in the Waitomo area again.
Hi Michelle. Please you had an enjoyable stay with us and thanks for your review on Trip Advisor.
Kind Regards Billie
Stayed over night on route to Te Kauwhata, the cabin was basic; but comfortable. As a pet friendly venue it was perfect with a puclic green space near by and only a block or two away from the main eateries in town. Service was polite and pleasent. The only down fall was the location near the main railway line, but hardly the fault of the owners. Would recommend as a no fuss stop if you've got family or pets.
Thank you for your review. Pleased to hear you had a good stay at our park and it suited you with your pet. We are lucky we have the lake reserve next door to us and it is ideal for walking dogs.
This cabin is essentially a bed in a box. Sounds horrible but we really liked it as it gives you what you want, a cheap bed with power points for charging batteries/laptop, a kitchen to cook a meal and nice hot showers. The town is 3 minutes walk across the railway tracks and has lots of shops and amenities.
Interestingly there was a full gym on site which you have full use of which was a bonus. There is also a sauna that there is an additional charge for.
The kitchen although very clean had no pots, pans, plates, etc for visitor use and you need to supply your own.
