Could not recommend
Nice setting but very run down property Was very surprised to learn upon arrival we had to share a bathroom with 2 other bedrooms as it was noted on our booking that our room had a shower but in fact it did not

Great value for money.
We wanted to check out Tauranga, which is an hour away from this hotel. Hotel is very difficult to find as it is on a main road with little signage in where to turn in, so it takes a bit of trial and error, but once you find it, you’re treated to sheep, alpacas and a cow! The host is friendly, but there is only one shared bathroom, so the queue for a morning shower can be a bit tough. Overall, good value for money though and a comfortable stay.

2/10 Poor

This is my very first online review. Oh I wish it was a happy one, but sadly no. Worst place we've have ever stayed at. It was so terrible we went back after dropping off our luggage earlier in the day, reclaimed our luggage, and left without even staying overnight. We ended up staying at another hotel that night, paying for both places. It is situated off a busy highway, dangerous to get in and out of. There are farm animals on the property, so there are two separate gates you have to manually open and close to get in. Instead of staying in the separate little building shown in the promo pictures, the owner put us in a tiny old bedroom in his house. We had to take off our shoes going into the house, because the front yard is full of alpacas which pee'd and poo'd all over the front lawn. Truly disgusting. Next, entering the house there was a circling mass of about 20 black flies in the main hallway. The little bedroom was nothing like promo material, and had no air conditioning. There was a shared bathroom down the hall, which was dirty, which my wife refused to use. When we came back for our luggage, the owner was not around. We just reclaimed our luggage and left. I'll eat the cost of two hotels for the night. The nightmare of staying there pales in comparison to the wrath of my wife for the next 20 years if I had made her stay there.

Beautiful Views, Comfortable Beds, Convenient
Pouring rain, middle of the night, and jetlagged from a long flight, we were new to the country and thought it would save time the next day by driving closer to our destination for our stay. A flight delay changed these plans, but thankfully the owner of the Homestead B&B was understanding and helpful from start to finish. Homestead is located among farms and a major road; if you arrive in daylight you should have no issues finding the place, but be aware GPS directions are off. The Homestead is an old family farm house divided into separate rooms. They all look and feel different. You will not have a private bathroom, but during our stay we never saw the other guests. Our room was a big bed, thick blankets, and was clean. The restroom was clean, with a nice large shower and clean towels. The common areas were even more comfortable with a big table and lots of built-in window seats overlooking the mountains and farms around. The owner keeps alpacas, chickens, and other animals on the grounds (be sure to watch where you step). They're friendly and picturesque. Breakfast is provided in the form of cereal, toast, jams, drinks, and other simple foods. Above all else, this place is convenient for trips to Hobbiton, Rotorua, and other tourist sites in the area. Thanks again for meeting us outside in the middle of the night! We enjoyed our stay!
