Although it may seem built for, well hobbits, this hotel is open to human tourists. Forged into the rolling hills of Waitomo, this little porthole-style windowed building looks like it was ripped right out of J.R.R. Tolkien’s imagination.
As many of the scenes in the “Lord of the Rings” movie trilogy were filmed in New Zealand’s dramatic landscapes, this lodging acts as a lasting tribute to that experience. Within the hotel’s replicated rabbit holes are two units of guest rooms, each with round doors and windows, and specially designed furniture. Each room can accommodate up to 6 people.
The hotel has a one of a kind view, as it’s surrounded by farm animals and blooming nature. It’s clear that the owner’s thought ahead before building their business at Woodlyn Park. And being that the location is New Zealand, any die-hard fan of the trilogy will certainly have this spot on their radar.
