Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

From the moment we arrived for our two day stay for a family wedding at Flaxmere Gardens (located just 5-10 minutes away) we felt welcomed by Janine and her husband into their home, which was a very large and exquisite homestead. We enjoyed an amazing cooked breakfast every morning and it was just a totally relaxing place to stay and enjoy a few days before and after the family wedding. I’d highly recommend Woodgrove Homestead to everyone.

An amazing location topped only by the amazing hosts with a wealth of local knowledge and beyond. A wonderfully maintained country homestead with peace and tranquility that puts you right at ease. For those looking for a bit of an escape check this place out first with enough to do in the surrounding areas to keep you more than interested.

We stayed 1 night at this lovely homestead which is in a lovely rural setting, full of tranquility and peace. The full breakfast was delicious. However we stayed in the studio and from the website and reviews on TripAdvisor we didn't realise that the studio was seperate from the homestead in a 'corrugated barn/garage' with none of the character of the homestead. The photos on the internet are not current and the reviews on Tripadvisor are for the previous management Herman. It is now under new ownership for the lasr 8 months. Having said that we still enjoyed our stay - just not what we thought we were getting.

Beautiful location in Hawarden. We stayed in the gallery which is separate from the homestead and it was a perfect place for the night. Herman was a great host setting up a European breakfast for us prior to our departure. We were here for work, but I'd like to return and spend a little more time. Perhaps stay in the Homestead itself next time.

Beautiful rooms. Well furnished. Good breakfast. Very nice hosts. In the middle of the countryside in the Waipara Vally. If you want to get some rest , this is the place to be. Also Christchurch is nearby.

The B&B is located out in the countryside, 15 - 30 minutes from villages and towns of the Waipara Valley. You discover a gracious traditional house amid the fields and pastures (use your GPS!). Our room was very large, with a private door onto the terrace, and a nicely equipped bathroom. "Our" sitting room was just across the hall from our room, with chairs, settee and table, overlooking the lawn and sheep fields. Our hosts, both of whom are Dutch, were engaging, inviting us for wine and cheese before we left for dinner. They prepared a complete cooked breakfast with European touches. We really felt that we were guests in their house, not just travelers in an ordinary B&B.

A place been a bit on the blind spot before. This area is really worth to stay longer and this B & B would be the perfect base for that stay. The hosts are very welcoming, the rooms are just great. Overall it is quiet and comfortable. The dinner arrangement is a beautiful idea and you will get lots of information and tips from the hosts.

We only stayed one night on this charming premises, which is probably worthwhile for a longer vacation. Woodgrove, an old farm with a history tenderly maintained by its owner, lies in a quite hilly region, ideal for hiking or visiting Christchurch, which is considerably less than one hour's drive. The mansion is impressive, equipped with antique, partly french furniture, a very cosy living room connected to a an open and spaceoius kitchen. The breakfast was superb. We had the studio in a former workshop, a huge room with HVAC (both for cooling and heating), four beds, a well equipped kitchen and a bathroom.
