The Hobbit Motel, New Zealand

Don’t worry if you’re not 3 foot tall with hairy feet, everyone is welcome at the Hobbit Motel

From the outside, the two self-contained, underground ‘Hobbits’ look like they have come straight from Tolkien’s Middle-earth!  Yet on the inside, they offer surprisingly modern and comfortable accommodation for up to six people. 

This unusual motel was built using polystyrene blocks, keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  This, coupled with the range of activities available at Woodlyn Park, make it a great holiday destination all year round.

In fact, it’s the perfect place in which to spend a ‘little’ time in New Zealand!

Woodlyn Park doesn’t just offer amazing motels.  There’s a whole host of adventures to be had during your stay.

Billy Black is a professional sheep shearer who puts on an unforgettable show for Woodlyn Park guests. Including a Kiwi bear, a dancing log and exploding pigs – sorry, a dancing pig and exploding logs – you won’t want to miss out on Billy Black’s Kiwi Culture Show!

And, if you still have energy left, why not visit the nearby Waitomo Caves, an amazing cave system with stalactites, stalagmites and even glowworms! Along with the opportunity to try blackwater rafting and take in the breathtaking views for which New Zealand is famous, we really don’t think one could ask for more!
