This hotel is simply outdated and in dire need of a renovation. Small rooms, no lift (have to carry luggage upstairs) no aircon etc.
The only saving grace of this place is the location, right in Waitomo. That being said there are other options here and my guess is you’d be better off to stay at any of them.
Staff were friendly, but we only spoke to someone for 30 seconds while we checked in.
I would not stay here again.
A very grand looking building in a central location (with respect to Waitomo Caves area) - but the hotel needs a serious update. The inside of the building and the rooms smell like an old building with damp carpet which was very off-putting.
