Waitomo Hotel, Waitomo

Our trip to Waitomo Hotel was a repeat of a visit there 41 years ago. In those days it was owned by the THC government hotel chain and was a busy vibrant place. The government sold the chain in 1990, and although the hotel is a wonderful old building in a brilliant position above the village, it is a far cry from it's hey-day. But fortunately we were unaware that it has a reputation as the most haunted hotel in New Zealand. The only ghosts for us, were memories of our younger selves forty-one years ago. For us, that was equivalent to the paranormal time travel experience  reported in the Waikato Times by an investigator in 2011!
