Just stayed 2 nights in the hobbit house, unusual and interesting pace to stay. Inside the hobbit house is quite comfortable but the outdoor furniture is very dirty and unfit to sit on. This is a shame because it’s a quiet peaceful location and had...More

A really cute place. Some would definitely see it as kitschy but I actually loved it. Kids would love it. Clean and functional space and a 3 minute drive to Waitomo Caves. Was perfect for what we needed. Reasonably priced.

We hope you had a good catch up with your friends, and were able to enjoy some of attractions available in Waitomo. Thankyou for your input about the BBQ area, and we will try and make it more useful.

We stayed in the plane cockpit. Compact, but comfortable and well equipped. It does get hot, but there is air conditioning. Friendly and helpful owner/manager. Taking quirky to a whole new level. Free WiFi near reception.
