          Location

          Meal was dull, room shabby, cost overpriced.

        • Family with children
          5.0

          We liked the location and surroundings. The meals were good

          There was no security regarding being able to lock our room securely. The aroma from the on-suite was unacceptable. Your staff not knowing the details of our booking, (Didn't know as to if our breakfast was included in the booking or not.) The $25 breakfast cost for a piece of toast and cup of coffee!!!!!

        • Family with children
          4.2

          Room was very tired like the rest of the hotel. Internet service was terrible - $20 but it never worked. The Waitomo caves are a great experience and the hotel is the only "quality" one in town but no money has been spent on it for 30 years and it really shows.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          1. Location 2. Tidy gardens and surrounds 3. Period decor.

          1. Faulty shower 2. Shaver outlet not working. 3. Exorbitant breakfast costs for elderly people who merely want tea and toast. 4. Tatty building maintenance.

          The age of the old hotel

          I felt sad that it is not a thriving hotel as I feel it has so much potential, the hotel is very tired and although the rooms are clean and comfortable this hotel could be a fabulous boutique hotel that many visitors could enjoy

        • Group of friends
          5.4

          Disappointing, although the Manager & Staff did all they could, I felt that the Hotel needs a fully refurbishmnent and should be closed untill finished, we thought this was a better choise than the Bed & Breakfast, so that was a big mistake.

        • Older travelers

          Quaint step back in time, true historic hotel, would have been truly grand in it's heyday. Lovely to stay in old world charm.

          Bathroom small - as not in original design of hotel due to it's age, but still nice to be updated and have ensuite bathroom.

          perhaps we are allocated the old wing hence the decoration are filled with old English flavor. Personally it was eery for me but there is no ghost! It was a pretty small old English boutique like hotel I would say. Location was great because it was next to Waitomo cave.

          The toilet was too old in the old wing. And they do not offer cooked breakfast. Their breakfast is over price. I recommend you to take yr breakfast at the nearby cafe (There are several cafe located at the slope of the hotel).

          Old world charm, and a peaceful location, with friendly staff

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Proximity to Waitomo Caves and its classic look

          It does not have the comforts typically expected in hotels (heat for one) and space.

        • Couple
          7.8

          We liked the historical aspect, the design, the location.

        • Couple
          7.4

          Staff very friendly. Kept kitchen open for us even though we arrived after it had closed.

          Hotel is a bit run down in parts. Needs new paint on ceilings.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          Historically interesting

          Offensive smell in ensuite - drainage poorly installed with water lock in shower base absent. Staff informed who assured us of immediate action. This hotel is a very tired "old girl". It is to be hoped "she" can be rescued and restored to former glory.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The weather was very hot and there is no air conditioning, fan was provided but was not enough.

          Very friendly staff. Beautiful old building in a beautiful location. Nice restaurant. Cosy room.

          Walls/doors quite thin so might hear some noise from the other rooms or the corridor.
