Very well located near the Glowworm Caves and other attractions. Clean, reasonable sized rooms with ensuite, attached to private residence. Very helpful owner, great views of the area from the garden. Breakfast was in-room (in refrigerator), which was okay but wi-fi only worked when sitting at the picnic area, not in room. Overall, a very good place to stay for...

Not a B&B as you would normally know it, where you are included in the home. This was more a motel with breakfast. Having said that:- Pam left a note to say which unit we were to be in. It was small with little space for our luggage, we had to store one suitcase under the bed. A very full...

Owners nice enough. Although we were told off for being confused about the layout on arrival. The room we were given was absolutely tiny! Comfortable bed. No wardrobe. No room for the bags (we were tripping over our luggage)! Bare concrete walls with completely inadequate heating. It was absolutely freezing! Tried to obtain extra heater twice but there was no...

Simple, sufficient, beautiful hillside views and close to Otorohanga, and Waitomo Caves and sights. Also located next to the golf club and course. Very nice host. We are on our second night here (on our honeymoon) and we love it. It is perfectly sufficient and conveniently located to Otorohanga and just 15 minutes to the Blackwater Waitomo Caves facilities. Breakfast......

We were disappointed by the atmosphere, which is like a motel while it was branded "Bed and Breakfast" when we booked it on booking.com. Rooms are independent and not really inside the owner house, but besides it. Breakfast is not served with all guests together: everything is in the room fridge the night before, which doesn't make an amazing breakfast...

Easy to get to location and the owners were very inviting and friendly. The room is compact, but new and very clean. The breakfast provided was more than enough and gives a great start to the day! Great value.

Nice location. Accommodation lacking as noted by previous reviewer; should have trusted that one! (1) internet doesn't reach room 1. can't say whether it works in other rooms provided. (as partial compensation the landlady, after some arguments, gave us a key to a room in the house to use for internet (but not to stay in, so required walking back...

Located next to the Waitomo Golf Course, this is an immaculately presented accommodation. Although compact, it provides everything needed and a more than adequate breakfast. Well priced. It is a pleasant location and not too far from the Waitomo Caves. If you are a golfer, don't drive on without enjoying a round at the course.

This is a B and B, breakfast consisted of cold cereal, toast, and juice left in the small fridge. No space outside of the room, except for a moss covered bench out front. . The room was very small, no room for one let alone two suitcases, no luggage racks. There was no room in the bathroom for cosmetic cases,...
