Tokaanu only has a few motels now that the big hotel closed years ago. It's a mystery why this isn't the spa centre of New Zealand. Gagging for a hot pool on a cold day we were suitably warm by mealtime. The motel has a separate carpeted bedroom but artful wooden floors elsewhere. There were two heaters - a steam one and an oil stand-alone one which, once we found a power point that worked kept us warm overnight. The owners were happy to be of service, a contrast with our stay in Tokaanu at another motel on the trip up where the promised hot pools didn't eventuate. Might stay here again though, unless by a miracle someone builds a plush new accommodation unit.
