    Thank you for you kind review of Waitomo Lodge Motel. Willow the puppy enjoys everyone who visits!!

    For one night if you are going to the Glowworm caves, this place is fine. Room was clean, comfortable and of reasonable size. The location is right on the road to the caves and only 10-15 minutes away.
