We stayed here for 1 night while in Waitomo and enjoyed it. The rooms are basic but was presented very clean and tidy! Great amount of beds in the room - 4 singles and 1 double. Everyone found these to be all comfy too. Loved the pool. Close to the Waitomo attractions in the area.

My wife and I and our two daughters spent 1 night at the Glowworm Motel. The accommodation was spacious and clean and consisted of 2 rooms with 2 single beds in each room, as well as a double bed in an open plan lounge and kitchen area. The double bed was a bit unsteady and the shower was nice although the shower head was a bit low. The kitchenette was adequate with a large useful dining room table. Our room was close to a busy road so traffic was a bit noisy, especially large trucks passing by. Overall, the motel was pleasant and was a convenient stop-over to visit the Waitomo Glowworm caves and the Aranui and Ruakuri caves.

Our family stayed in the 3 bedroom stand-alone cabin. Private, quiet, lots of space and very comfortable. Swimming pool very welcome - location great for exploring Waitomo’s attractions. Host very friendly, very helpful. Great family stay.

Good value for money. It's very affordable and well worth the money. Very friendly and helpful owners. The room we had for 3 adults was roomy, clean and welcoming. The kitchen was well equipped and everything worked fine. Car parking right at the door step. Owner not only gave us a good recommendation for a place to have dinner, also gave us the Motel's name card as reference for a generous discount.

Loved this for budget family accommodation. Owner super friendly and helpful. Neat and tidy rooms, they even provided daily towels! Close to all the Waitomo experiences but out if the hussle and bustle.
