Nags Head Horse Hotel Opens
When you check in at this hotel, you may be surprised to find that your bellboy is rather shorter and hairier than at the Ritz, but then the Nags Head Horse Hotel is no ordinary hotel.
Every week horses and their riders travel long distances to compete, or to use recreation areas. In some cases, this involves an overnight stay and now there is somewhere that makes horses, dogs and their owners truly welcome. The Nags Head Hotel is located in Woodhill, North West of Auckland mainly to provide overnight accommodation for the many horses and riders that make their way to nearby Woodhill Sands Equestrian Centre. Woodhill Sands has become a Mecca for hundreds of competitors most weekends, but space is at a premium due to the high demand.
