A 1950's Bristol Freighter fully refurbished into 2 beautiful self contained motel units.

This plane was one of the last allied planes out of Vietnam.
Possibly the only accommodation of its type in the world.   Beautifully decorated this unique accommodation is surprisingly affordable for your stay in wonderful Waitomo.

There are two separate units in the Plane. The Cockpit Unit which can sleep up to 4 people. It has a double bed and a sofa that pulls out to a large single - up in the cockpit there is a double mattress on the floor, this is more suitable for kids as it has a very low ceiling (we do have the odd big kids sleeping up there as well). To get to the cockpit you have to climb a steep ladder, we recommend children be over 8 years old to climb this safely. Unit has very little floor space.

Tail Unit of the Plane can sleep up to 4 people it has a double bed and a set of bunks (bunks are slightly narrower than a normal size bunk & has a steep ladder up to the top bunk.)

The perfect venue for your wedding or special function. Woodlyn Park's main building is filled with memorabilia from New Zealand's Yesteryear making it the most interesting venue you could choose.
