Art Deco Wing
By the mid 1920’s the “Government Hostel” was too small for the growing number of visitors to the Waitomo caves. In 1928 the “concrete wing” was built. This was the Art Deco period, which took its architectural influences from many sources. The concrete pillars and facades are in the Cape Dutch style often seen in South Africa. The use of thick concrete walls, decks and patios are an American influence and come from the Spanish missionary settlements in California.
Victorian Wing
This Building was completed in 1908 and was originally called the “Government Hostel at Waitomo”. The architecture is typically New Zealand Victorian but is based on an Eastern European mountain chalet. Victorian architect loved asymmetry and none of the hotel’s four walls or four corners are the same. There were only six bedrooms for guests; the other rooms were an office/reception, kitchen, dining room and staff rooms.
