Tokoroa overnight stop
The owners were very nice and friendly however the condition of the property wasn't the best. The shower leaked badly and had not been well installed and the shelf for the TV was coming off the wall. The breakfast was great though. Overall OK for a night or two only. You will also need a satnav to find it and the sign is very small.

NOT a hotel -- stay away!!!
This place is not a hotel. It's just the house of an older couple. And as nice as they are, this is somewhere in between false advertising and a plain old scam. We booked the double room, which doesn't say "shared bathroom" in the title or the confirmation, but does say "detached private bathroom" if you click on "room information". In reality, it's not private by any stretch of the imagination -- first there's nothing preventing any other guests or the hosts themselves using the same bathroom. Second, you go to the restroom down the stairs, through the living room, in which the hosts sit in, so not much of privacy. Oh, and you're asked to take your shoes off before entering the house, so you get to walk in the public areas of the "hotel", including the bathroom, in your socks or barefoot. 24-hour fitness center and spa tub, I have no clue what these could be. 3.5 stars is probably something the hosts awarded themselves. All these “details” contribute to the pretense that this place is a hotel. By far the most ridiculous "hotel" experience I've had in my life. Stay away!

Oh, and you're asked to take your shoes off before entering the house, so you get to walk in the public areas of the "hotel", including the bathroom, in your socks or barefoot. 24-hour fitness center and spa tub, I have no clue what these could be. My guess is that would be just some equipment lying around in the garage or something. 3.5 stars is probably something the hosts awarded themselves. All these “details” contribute to the pretense that this place is a hotel. This would be a serviceable "private room" listing in airbnb, but the current description is grossly misleading, and no way is it worth half of what we paid for it. We left after the first night even though we paid for more than that in a non-refundable fare. By far the most ridiculous "hotel" experience I've had in my life.

Good stay
Bruce and Ruthie are a nice couple and you will feel homely and safe at this place. However, the bedsheets in the room were not clean from the earlier night. Overall, hygienic conditions were below par.

Not what it is cracked up to be
This is a home stay with a lovely retired couple as your hosts. They are very welcoming and can't do enough for you but some of the facilities on the accomodation information on hotels.com site are not correct. For example it states that there is a 24 hour fitness facility. Well there is if you go to a local gym. Be prepared to share a bathroom with the other guests. The shuttle service is the owner driving you places in his car. The description of the accomodation was a little deceiving but at least it was dry, clean and acceptable.
