Waitomo Lodge is located in Te Kuiti, the administrative, cultural and social centre of the Waitomo District. With a population of 5000, Te Kuiti is the largest town in the area.
A feature of Te Kuiti which will appeal to the visitor is its central location relative to other national tourist icons. Waitomo Caves is one of the most outstanding tourist destinations and that is 15 minutes easy drive to the north of the Waitomo Lodge. Other Tourist attractions are:

We stayed in a one bedroom unit. The rooms are well designed for families, as there is a separate room with two twin beds for the children, with the king size bed, lounge and kitchenette in the same room. Clean and tidy and very comfortable stay. Would definitely stay again.
The bed was huge and really comfy, everywhere was spacious light and clean. Receptionist was lovely when we checked in too. Provided great parking spaces and fantastic facilities in the room. Also only 15 minutes to the famous Glowworm Caves driving.
Well equipped and nicely stocked rooms. Great tea and coffee facilities. Beds comfy, pillows top notch. Great location knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Fabulous stop for our visit to Waitomo caves. We had a lovely breakfast at Bosco cafe across the road and the kids enjoyed a local toy shop.
