Our wide range of Waikato hotel accommodation lets you enjoy all the region has to offer. The Waikato region has two spectacular landscapes - one above ground, the other below. In both cases, nature has been generous. Our Waikato hotels are perfectly positioned to allow you to explore on the lush surface, the scenery which is green to the extreme. Fertile soils, reliable rainfall and kind temperatures have created a pastoral heaven.
Our Waikato hotel accommodation also makes a great base for appreciating what is below the surface. Miracles have been wrought with water and limestone. Vast cave systems, huge sink holes and underground streams provide huge scope for adventure.
