Where I stayed
The caves were indeed impressive - I'm not sure how official the 'largest passage' and 'longest passage' claims are, but they're pretty fucking huge nonetheless... Deer cave (the bat one..) has a river running through it which falls from a tree-clad hole in the far wall dubbed the 'Garden of Eden' - very nice. Lang cave has some particularly nice formations... as does wind cave. Clearwater cave again has a river running through it, which you can step into if you're feeling stupid (it's pretty rapid.. and it's pitch black in there).
Just outside Clearwater cave is the entrance to Turtle cave - a section of easy/intermediate adventure caving
Finally saw the bat exodus on my final evening - albeit with some pretty heavy rain making them pretty reluctant to come out. Seeing the rings and waves of bats dodging the bat hawks was pretty impressive still...
