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.

Great accommodation in easy walking distance of probably the best attraction, walk, and pub in the town, and some nice cafes for breakfast. Friendly management. Just a nice place to stay. The Power Station Walk is relatively easy and really pleasant. Taste the gin and eat at the Dawsons Pub. Nothing else to know really.....

Booked in as part of our trip through the Lewis Pass from Blenheim. Character building and what I expect at the front may have been an old 'hotel' back in the day. Nobody was at reception when we arrived (mid afternoon on a Wednesday), but the phone at reception was quickly answered and a couple of minutes later we were greeted and checked in to our room out the back on the gound level. Could not fault anything here really (although a wall/bedside light in the master bedroom for readers would have been welcomed). The unit itself was a good size, had a carpark outside, double glazing (warm and reduced any road noise I expect), a confortable bed and a couple of radiator heaters which were quick to warm the unit up on a cooler and rainy night. The place was tidy and everything form milk in the fridge to salt and pepper made for a pleasant stay.

Reefton has been transformed into a beautiful old historic little town, still with a mining heritage, and that hospitable West Coast atmosphere. Our tour guide had booked us into the Lantern Court Motel. My husband was indulging in eating a fresh hot buttered scone and spilt melted butter down his shirt and trousers. Proprietor kindly offered to launder my husband's clothes, clothes returned clean and dried and folded, wouldn't take payment.

Loved our stay with the Lantern Court. We received a fabulous welcome and stayed in a super cute, comfortable, impeccably clean cottage. We only stayed one night, but wish we had had more time to stay longer as this is a cute little interesting town and the accomodation was perfect. Will be back.

We stayed in Reefton for two nights at the Lantern Court Motel. The very spacious room was super clean, very well furnished and had central heating. The king sized bed was very comfortable. The only downside was that there was no heating in the bathroom and it was cold. The owner was very friendly and helpful.

Very comfortable units. Nothing missing right down to the fresh milk in the fridge and the pepper and salt shakers. Spacious. Large bathroom. We were upstairs on the first floor with pleasant outlook over the road to the park. On the Main Street and so handy to all amenities. Pleasant receptionist. Bike storage. Excellent value. There were no vacancies on the night we stayed.

We have stayed here a few years ago but never got around to doing a review. Friendly staff upon check in, had a few jokes with her and she was very helpful. Once again had an upstairs spa room in the newer part of the hotel. Spotlessly clean and tidy. Spacious room with super comfy bed and nice corner view. Windows were open on arrival so nice and aired. Nice deck to sit out on but too hot both nights for us. Central to everything and a good price. Although I thought they had said if we stayed a second night it would be cheaper, maybe I misunderstood. Still happy enough and would always choose this place when back in Reefton.

Stayed one night. Had a standard 3 bedroom unit, bonus was the wrap around balcony , really big. In hindsight should have chosen the superior room for the two of us with the period furniture but apart from being a basic apartment it had everything we needed. It was very comfortable, excellent location, lovely welcome.

Had a great welcome by the ‘local yokel’ owner. Room very average however spacious and clean. Little soundproofing. People in the room next door partied all night. I went out at 1 and asked them to ease off. They did, but only briefly. Polycotton sheets made me feel like I was sleeping in a plastic bag so I had little sleep overall. Would we stay here again? No. But that’s not because the service wasn’t good....it’s just not a place that suits our needs.
