We are located in the Waikato, a 2 and a half hour drive south of Auckland and 2 hours across from Rotorua. We are a couple of minutes drive from the world famous Glowworm Caves in Waitomo. Our Motels are world unique, built in part from recycled and natural materials. They have in the past worked hard as a war plane, a navy patrol boat and a carriage from the steam train era. As such they have a slightly lingering aroma from their industrial past, much like any modern vehicle - their scent reflects the materials they are made of. Our Hobbits built underground contain natural fibre curtains and some timbers - these too reflect the natural scent of their origins.

We have had porta cots in all the units except for S4 (Endeavour unit) The Plane and S2 (Britannic unit) are fairly small spaces though. Kind regards, Shelley

Suitable for 6 means one queen bed and 4 single beds. Sleeps 6 means suitable for 6 people adult or children. We have safety regulations to adhere to and more than 6 overcrowds the facilities. Thank you.
