    Response from colinWaitomo, Owner at Waitomo Caves Guest LodgeResponded 22 October 2014

    Thanks for the review. The room and bathroom was small because three of our rooms are smaller than the others, hence they are cheaper for guests to stay in. Often price is more important to travelers than space in the bathroom.

    Sorry about the noise next door. Luckily this isn't usually a problem as guests tend to be 'caved-out' by the end of the day and most turn in early.

    We do not see any reviews until they are published on Trip Advisor. It may have been misplaced so may need to be redone.
