This B&B has four rooms and our party of 3 adults took two of them.. We arrived early and borrowed towels before we dashed off to the very wet Black Labyrinth tour at Waitomo. Julie couldn't be more gracious about lending us the towels. After our tour and dinner, we came back to the spotlessly clean rooms and a breakfast...

A lovely setting, about 7km out of town, in the heart of the countryside. We had a nice large room with a good sized bathroom. There are lots of guest facilities including a small pool, guest lounge and kitchen, hot tub and pool table. Breakfast was tasty with a good selection and the complimentary cookies - wonderful.

We had a wonderful stay here! It's incredibly beautiful and the lodge is very comfortable,clean and quiet. We were greeted with homemade chocolate chip cookies!! It's in the NZ countryside with beautiful surrounding farms. Julie makes breakfast in the morning and it's fun chatting with the other guests. We were sad that we had to leave early for our caving...

This lodge is amazing. It's about 10 minutes away from the caves, but an experience all by itself. It's so beautiful and clean. The owner Julie is friendly, knowledgeable and as sweet as you can fine here in New Zealand. Don't miss this lodging if your in the area. The pictures on the site are true to reality. Have fun...

A nice out of the way location (if that is what you want). Quite, cozy and clean rooms. Close to caves and other attractions. Great breakfast. Had a hot tub, but we arrived too late to use, long drive in from Auckland. Would recommend.

So if you are looking for a good base to visit the worms and for example hobbiton, this place is great. However, the bed was way to soft for our liking and backs, on the other hand the bed linnens were great and made you feels comfy. The bathroom had all the essentials but the look and feel was too...

We arrived mid afternoon to the cleaner. She was very inviting and warming. The property is well maintained and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It feels more like home than any other place I've stayed in. Breakfast was lovely and the price for 2 of us to stay 1 night was spare change pretty much.

Very convenient to Waitomo caves, friendly welcome, hearty breakfast and a good size family room. Only one thing to note is that there are cats and dogs wandering around property so be aware if you are allergic.
