    Waitomo Great location in the town. Only a 30 second walk away from 'Curly's' which is a bar serving food. The glowworm caves are only moments away by car so you're right in the heart of everything. We stayed in what could only be described...More

    Stayed here with Contiki in January 2017. Small little rooms which get the job done for an overnight stay. Reasonably close to the caves and a short walk to a nearby lookout over Waitomo. Try and opt for a room with a balcony.
