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,...

My boyfriend and I decided to book a last second trip to visit the Waitomo Caves in Otorohanga. We found this place and got a room on the same day . Once we got here we found it to be incredibly clean and the owner of the bed and breakfast is very kind. It's in a gorgeous location. All in...

This is a bed&breakfast. The location is great as it is only 15 min away from Waitomo Caves and it is about 5 min away from Otonoranga. Our room had an amazing view, this place is really quiet and peaceful. For most of the rooms you have your own independent entrance. Pam ( owner) is very nice, she gave us...
