This is a somewhat new and small motel, with about a dozen units. Ours was very modern, almost luxurious, clean, and had full amenities for tea, coffee, and light cooking. The king-sized bed was very comfortable, and there were good reading lights on each side, many pillows, a desk, a large tv, and several comfortable chairs in the room. The bathroom was large and had electric outlets, a hairdryer, etc. The staff, a middle-aged couple, could not have been more accommodating, giving us low-fat milk for breakfast, when the room came with full-fat milk. The proprietors also gave us tips on things we had not planned to see, such as The Shearing Shed, where we saw an excellent demo on shearing Angora rabbits and the use of their wool. It was very close to the Waitomo glowworm caves, and the price was very good. The only drawback was its proximity to a main line railroad track, but this was ameliorated by double-glazing in the windows.
