    No one to check in with, note on office door for us. Saw someone shifting sheep but they did not introduce themselves. Were they managers? No info about property. Maintenance is obviously a challenge. Property very run down. Had to call mobile to find out what to do on check out and where to leave key.

    List to Starboard !

    We originally booked in the Endeavour Unit in the Ship. It was not clear from the booking site that the toilet and bathroom are situated down in the hull of the ship, down stairs from the relatively modest sized bedroom, making the midnight trip to the little room a bit treacherous. The right hand side of the bed slopes alarmingly away to starboard with the floor contour. This ship is not on an even keel ! As we were the only guests staying the night, a quick call to the proprietor allowed us to move rooms to the Train carriage which at least had a flat floor. But we had to pay the extra $30 involved with staying in that accommodation. The carriage is reasonable, but with a minimum of effort and expense it could be made significantly better. Some of the water on the floor of the open shower pools around the base of the toilet so bathmats and towels are required to soak up the excess water. The furniture is adequate, but not in keeping with the theme and it would not be too difficult to attend to that to give the full experience. The outside grounds are rough and ready, and the driveway rough and rutted in places - again without too much effort this could be rectified. The experience promised much, but fell well short of expectations. Avoid booking the boat, the train was OK, and the plane with two units looks like it might be on the cramped side. Having visited Hobbiton on our tours, the Hobbit Holes again appear to suffer from a lack of thematic furniture and decor.

    Close to Waitomo Caves, good for family stay. Felt the outside had been let go, poor WiFi. Could of done with a few blankets.

    The Hobbit unit was spacious, clean and well appointed. The bunk beds were really big like a king single bed and the main bed was very comfortable. The shower had great water pressure.

    Crazy staying in a plane. But kinda dusty and "machiney" for the kids sleeping in the cockpit.
