We stayed in Hobbit motel Unit 2 on the last night of our NZ trip. What a wonderful way to conclude our Middle Earth experience after having visited Hobbiton! Though the interior of the unit had modern fixtures and amenities, little details such as tree branch curtain rods and hessian curtains over the round windows reminded us we were actually living in a hobbit hole. After seeing the property in numerous brochures and guide books we were a bit concerned it would go down the highly commercialised and touristy path, so we were pleasantly surprised by how natural and rustic the property was kept, though it's practically only a stone's throw from the main Waitomo village and attractions. There were other guests staying next door and down at the ship, but we could hardly feel their presence. It's hard to pick a favourite part of our stay, but being able to step outside the front door with 360 degree views of the starry night sky was definitely a magical moment. The only down side was the lack of flyscreens on the windows so bugs might be a bother (but that did add to the unit's rustic charms).
