... year working for DOC to look after the hut. To our amazement, they said they had had a group of 20 people staying last night, and were expecting 20 more tonight. We had though we were the only people for miles! We continued paddling without any sight of sound of them, choosing to stop at another less frequented campsite which we again had all to ourselves. It was only on the 3rd day that we caught up with other paddlers, struggling into a strong head-wind for the ...
... there are over 350 activity caves in the zone, so if you are into doing caving things, this is the place to visit. We settled for the Glow Worms and another limestone cave, called Aranui. Our guide here was the great, great, great, grandson of the Maori who found this cave system, while he was chasing a wayward pig. Later, for some time, parts of some of the caves were used for burials of the local Chiefs. We love caving.

There were several positives of this hotel: great location, friendly desk staff, clean and spacious room, reasonable price. I would stay there again. On the downside, they have a "nickel-and-dime" attitude. For example, there is a 1.5% extra fee for payments with credit cards, which is ridiculous; there are also fees for parking and a fee for internet (unless you join some membership club). The room included a refrigerator but it came filled with snacks that they had provided for purchase and it rattled loudly (so we unplugged it). The shower pressure was weak.
