Why so darn good? "Three reasons this hotel is SO DARN GOOD. Number one: It is a hobbit hole with a round door, round windows, and a sloped ceiling. Number two: A mule and pigs eat the grass on the roof above your head. Number three: The bed is incredibly comfortable and the kitchen facilities are quite nice."
Location: "Located on a farm in Waitomo, New Zealand, the motel overlooks a huge rolling hill and is within a three minute drive to the Waitomo caving operations."
Rooms: "Hobbit-like furniture makes the room feel rustic and comfortable. The curtains are simple canvas hung on large wooden sticks and the round windows and round door add a nice touch to the room. The kitchenette is compact but fully contained, and a round wooden table, comfortable queen sized bed, and weirdly-colored modern purple sofa finish the main room. A side room contains four bunk beds."
Vibe: "Relaxing and low-key."
Keep in Mind: "In addition to the hobbit motel, Woodlyn Park contains motel rooms in an airplane, ship, and train."
