There is no shortage of unique hotels in this world. There are themes and unusual locations, there are novelties, and there is a touch of adventure every now and then, if you’re looking for it.
If you happen to be a lover of the unique weekend retreat, and/or a lover of vertical lift, this decommissioned Royal Navy Helicopter will truly be a must-visit for you.
Located in Stirling, Scotland, the tiny hotel doesn’t take the shape of a local castle or farmhouse, as you might expect of the idyllic locale.
Instead, the decommissioned Royal Navy ZA127 Sea King Helicopter has been reimagined as a diminutive inn fit to sleep a group of up to five people. It boasts wood cladding that gives the helicopter a homey feel, in addition to swivel chairs and a table in place of the pilot area. Grandma’s country chopper, if you will. Fetch the tea cozy.
The Helicopter Hotel features a number of unexpected amenities, including a kitchenette and working bathroom. The Sea King also still has its original lighting that’s been preserved and restored to offer a take-off ready exterior appeal.
