Literary Hotels

The Hobbit Motel

If you're looking to go on a nice little getaway, CBC Books did a great feature on 5 hotel destinations that would thrill any book lover. The one featured above is my favourite of the bunch: The Hobbit Motel. It's located in Otorohanga, New Zealand, and it can accommodate up to 6 human-sized people. Since hobbits love to eat, each hotel room comes equipped with a kitchen. I don't know any J.R.R. Tolkien fan that wouldn't want to hole up (see what I did there?) at this Lord of the Rings-themed motel.

Other hotels on the list include the possibly haunted hotel that inspired Stephen King's The Shining, a romantic inn with rooms named after famous literary couples, and a hotel whose rooms are organized by the Dewey Decimal system!
