In unusual but true stories this week, we have a hotel inspired by Hobbit habitats, a 116-year-old honored as the oldest living person, portraits created by Rubik's Cubes, and a stolen gold toilet worth £1 million.

All the odd and interesting anecdotes from around the world are here in our review.

There is a fantasy-themed getaway in Scotland inspired by the Hobbit habitats in J.R.R Tolkien's Shire from Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

The hotel has a grass roof entrance, a rustic snuggle chair beside the roaring fire and a spectacular roof dome through which holidaymakers can enjoy the wondrous night sky.

It costs less than £20 (around 177 yuan) per person to stay in the place at the foot of a Highlands mountain.
