Waitomo Caves Hotel provides a taste of the early 19th Century grand tour hotel experience in our own time.
Majestically positioned on a promontory above the Waitomo village and the world famous Waitomo caves the hotel offers sweeping views across the lush farmland, the hills and bush of South Waitako.
Waitomo Caves Hotel is not for those of you seeking the modern sterile chic rather this is a sedate haven of faded décor, doubtful 60's renovations, sparkling crystal chandeliers, spacious clean rooms, deliciously comfortable beds and deep armchairs. Come and rest and relax, read, sip wine, and just simply hang out with us.
Planned renovations may alter this glimpse of the past era irrevocably so be sure to visit us now to experience the difference and the unique ambiance before it is too late.
The Hotel offers a large and very pleasant formal dining-room overlooking the terrace and the Rose gardens. The restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner 7 days a week.
The management and staff are largely locally employed, friendly and helpful and will try to cater for your needs especially if you provide some notice of your needs – remember we are out in the countryside here.
Relax and chat to friends or other guests in the cozy bar or on the adjacent terrace.
An absolutely ideal and affordable Hotel weekend away – just 1 hour from Hamilton and 2 or so hours from Auckland – just off State Highway one with pleasant towns like Otorohonga and Te Kuiti close by.
