Will The Hobbit Check-in to a Nelson Motel?

While there seems to be a void beyond the RWC, I was pleased to learn that Nelson (a city of motels) may benefit from hosting Sir Peter Jackson and his massive entourage while filming The Hobbit in November and December this year. 

Motel icon, John Gilbertson, let it slip to the media that some local motels are holding bookings for such a group.

If it all comes to fruition, hopefully some Jackson magic may keep accommodation providers' fortunes in Nelson bubbling away well into the Summer season.

...Some local moteliers may even have the opportunity to offer their services as extras in the movie;-)
