Check in was a piece of paper stuck to the office door, booked another party into the same room - no attention to detail at all. Cannot contact anyone as the office is always closed. Thank god it was for only one night . My partner tried to call me there they did not even know we were staying .... More

I stayed here with a friend for one night in November, and had a good experience. Booking was very easy, and they were willing to accommodate our late arrival. We stayed in the Hobbit house. The reviews are right- it looks like a Hobbit house from the outside (especially loved the window!) and the inside is more like a regular... More

My son and I kept talking about this place after we stayed there. It was one of the high lights of our trip! Why stay in a regular hotel room when you can make your stay a super memorable one!!! We took the ship room at the end with a wonderful deck! It was so clean and fresh! We walked... More

This accommodation is very unique, but maybe not good for everyone. It most likely would be best for families with kids who would probably enjoy the facilities more than we did. We stayed in the ship. For a couple in our late 60's the bathroom downstairs was not so enjoyable. If not for the novelty factor the room would have... More

Arriving late on the day due to an impulsive decision, we were greeted by Mary-Lou full of smiles and warmth at the front desk in the office. We headed to our "cabin" in their Waitanic vessel with expectant heart after given the key. "Wow! It's a ship, a real ship" cheered the kids immediately. We told the kids of the... More

If you are planning to visit Waitomo caves and going to spend a night in the area - go for a Woodlyn park unique accommodation. We have chosen a plane - Cockpit unit. There are 2 large beds - one in a cockpit itself and one downstairs so you can stay there with 1-2 kids. Our teenage son stayed upstairs... More

We stayed on the ship on the farm and for us it was a highlight of the trip. Of course it's not 5-star but it was clean and convenient and well laid-out. It was also lovely to sleep with open windows and hear the sounds of the farm during the night and in the morning. The owner is quite a... More

If you are looking for somewhere a little different, then this is the place for you! We had read about Woodlyn Park on Trip Advisor, and were keen to stay in the Hobbit Holes, however, as they were booked, we were offered the Captain’s Unit of the Waitanic, a converted WW2 patrol boat. We were not disappointed as the unit... More

We were excited to stay here in the hobbit motel but after being there for a while realised it wasn't quite as good as we thought. This was the first place I booked when arranging my holiday (7 months in advance) knowing they have only 2 hobbit hole motel rooms. My family are Lord of The Rings fans so it... More
