The host was very kind and hosptiable...she had so many chores on her plate, but she handled them all like a champ...I'm convinced she is a superwoman. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing! There is not much in Otorohanga, but Redwood Lodge is fairly close to the glowworms cave.
Loved the overall place. My partner and I were looking for somewhere to stay near Waitomo a day before we booked our glowworm cave adventure package. There were few places to choose from in the area and even fewer that had great reviews and I only happenstance found the Redwood lodge on kayak. It is a very short distance (10-15min drive) from attractions like the kiwi house and the glow worm caves. Because we were driving late to Otorohanga from our arrival in Auckland, we weren't sure if anyone would be around to check us in. Julie was great at contacting me ahead of time (unfortunately I didn't have network access) and helping us settle in despite our late arrival. There have great amenities - a spa and sauna, and free wifi, which I found to be a luxury at all other places we stayed during our vacation in Australia and New Zealand. The room and bathroom were spacious and the bed was very comfortable. She arranged a wonderful morning breakfast before our trip to the caves. We liked our stay so much that we extended it for another day.
