This park was very noisy located near restaurant bar. Had to listen to music until after 11:00. Finally had to go up and pound on doors demanding they shut the music down. Then near midnight three RV's rolled in. Park supposedly closes at 8:00. Three RV group were loud and noisy. Had to confront them to quiet. There is no... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback, and I am really sorry that your first night with us wasn't satisfactory. I know noise can be such a frustrating experience, but I do want to clear a couple of things up. We very rarely have any issue with the restaurant next door. The managers there have... More

Our family of four with two teenagers stayed in cabin 18 for one night to visit the caves. Very friendly greeting and easy check-in with the lovely Jenn. The 2-bedroom cabin was self contained with lounge, bathroom and kitchen. Clean and comfy. Plunger coffee was a bonus! We all enjoyed the hot tub near the pool and had a lovely... More

We visited as a family of four adults and a toddler and stayed in a cabin. The staff were friendly helpful. The place was clean and tidy. Good facilities - awesome playground, pool and well-equipped cabins, kitchen and entertainment areas. We will definitely stay again!

Stayed with tamariki and my brother's whanau for 2 nights to see Ruakuri and Aranui caves.

Hi Greg. Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your time in Waitomo and with us.

This is a cute sort of cottage. The room was equipped with kitchen utensils, microwave, refrigerator, etc. They also had ironing board & hair dryer. We were in room 11 with a queen size bed and in another room, there was a bunk bed. I was going to sleep in that queen size bed, but my daughter saw at least... More

Hi. Thanks for your feedback, and for taking the time to share it with us and other travellers. I am sorry about the hairs on the bed; we definitely would have remade the bed, but that doesn't change the fact that it shouldn't have happened. I'll speak to our staff about checking the linens/beds more carefully. I am glad to... More

Showers, kitchen and laundry all very clean and well appointed but the pitches are very small and when we visited in October the site was pretty full. It's a good base for visiting the caves but does not have any real charm or atmosphere. My advice? Book one night and then move on.

Hi Chantal. Thank you for your comments and for taking the time to share. I'm sorry to hear that your experience here wasn't entirely positive. We're actually opening some new powered sites this season that have a bit more space and grass, so maybe if you're ever back in the area you could try out one of those. I hope... More
