We stayed in the rail car with our teenage children, who thought it was really cool. The staff are friendly and very helpful pointing us to a number of local natural attractions we would have missed. The facilities are good (clean, well equipped basic kitchen, bathroom, and the rooms are not musty smelling) - we had everything we needed. The...

We are so pleased you were able to spend enough time to enjoy the peace and serenity that goes with the Waitomo Express, its nice to sit, relax and enjoy the views from the Carriage.

We were looking forward to staying at this unique motel as we have visited it in the past and had a great experience staying in the Hobbit rooms. This time we stayed in the titanic and found it to be tired drab and very musty smelling in the downstairs bedrooms. These could have been vastly improved with small adjustments eg...

When my friends and I first saw this option for our trip to New Zealand, we couldn't believe a place like this existed! We stayed one night in a unit in the Britannic, which was perfect for the four of us especially as it had our own bathroom and little kitchenette. The location was beautiful and quiet, and the staff...

I chose this place because it looked a cool and fun place to stay with a lot of history. It looked a lovely unique place based on the photo’s they supplied on their website, which is now out of date and a bit of a lie sadly it looks nothing like this today. It is total overgrown to the point...

First off, it is definitely unique! We stayed in both the plane and the hobbit. It's close by to the little village and surrounded by lots of countryside. And of course, what comes with countryside is insects. So just be prepared, but nothing to worry about other than the normal being in the country. Also, Shelly was great and very...

We stayed a night in the hobbit motel, with our 2 children. They were so excited to be sleeping in a hobbit house... and I found the bed to be extremely comfortable and the unit was clean and well maintained. Easy access to the township of Waitomo and the caves. So glad we took the opportunity to stay here.

With our two teen boys, we stayed in the tail of the plane for (sadly) only one night. We loved it. The big airplane door makes for a most authentic feel. The whole property is great and we liked our morning stroll past the other vehicles and then having breakfast on the table outside under the wing with views of...

Stayed in the cockpit of the plane. Loved it. Basic but comfortable and clean and it was all about the experience. There are some repairs needed and we were unable to shut the blinds in the lower bedroom but it did not matter as we were not overlooked. Lovely surroundings and some interesting animals who can be noisy (but not...

My family checked into our cockpit plane accommodation at Woodlyn park a few days ago. Billy was a fantastic host - the best we have had so far. He pointed out a great short walk we could do nearby, gave a run down on the food options in town and let us pat his trained pet pig (sits on command)...
