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)...

We stayed in the Train. My visitor from the UK loved it's quirkiness. The Train was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. They even had a TV. Towels were supplied, and the kitchen has a microwave and twin hob. There is a double bedroom and a further separate bedroom with 3 single beds. Large ensuite bathroom. Lovely and private and...

We are currently visiting New Zealand from the UK on a self drive Lord of the Rings/Hobbit tour. A trip which took months to organise and was booked about a year ago. Imagine our total disappointment when we arrived yesterday to book into our confirmed Hobbit Unit to be told it had been allocated to someone else. We were given...

I fully understand how dissapointing it was, and have brought up with the Travel Company the point of confirming reservations that have been made so that errors like this can be dealt with prior to the guests arrival. We apologise profusely for your dissapointment and wish we could have done more.

Great quirky stay in this unique hotel. The rear of the plane room was great. No WiFi though which was slightly frustrating, even at communal office. Double matress slightly "tired" but slept well. Very good but basic facilities for cooking. Could do with an outside table on the deck. Would recommend to anyone for the shear memories of staying in...

This place is wonderful. The builder should be commended on a fantastic job. He has converted a plane, ship and train into brilliant accommodation units. Friendly staff and an awesome location top off an experience to be remembered.
