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.

The room itself was ok, dated but clean. The welcome was non existant, the first words on arrival were how are you going to pay, not hello. An Asian lady on reception (think was owner) not welcoming or friendly at all! All other staff friendly though so I guess your experience depends on who you get on reception when you arrive. Would not go back. Not impressed!

Thanks for your feedback. The receptionist who was checked you in is our new front desk staff on training. So she was not very familiar with the check in process. I was with her and training her by that time, so I certainly found out this problem and pointed it out to her after you left, also make sure she will pay attention to it in the future. However, we were both very polite and friendly to you at the time of check you in. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

This was one of the best place to stay in our whole trip. We were there for a swimming competition, the staff at reception was very nice and kind to offer us an early check in, which was really helpful for us to make it ready to the competition. The room was down the back of the Motel which is very quiet at night. The room was nice and super clean, high standard of daily room service provided during our stay. We would definitely come back. Thank you for having us.

Spoilt by: 1) "Welcome" which consisted of a staccato stream of commands. Also a distinct lack of interest (or engagement) when we wanted some assistance ... which resulted in us not extending our stay by another day (we went to another motel just down the road) 2) When we entered the room it smelt heavily of air freshener - we suspect an attempt to hide the fact someone had been smoking in the room Also I was woken a couple of times, during the night, by traffic noise. That said the room very well equipped ... there was even an induction hob, in addition to the micro-wave.

All our rooms are non-smoking. We use the air freshener is to make the room smell nice, sometimes it could be helpful to remove the cooking smell by other guests. If you are a light sleeper, then you could be mentioned on the booking in advance. So, we can try to move you to a room that away from the main road.

At the Admiral Court motel and are “welcomed” by an unhelpful Asian lady (possibly Ivy Wu, the owner?). The sign outside says there are vacancies, the motel is not full, but she insists that we must take Unit 1, which is about 10 feet away from Highway 1. She refuses to offer us another unit further away from the road because “no-one requested a quiet room. There were no special requests with this booking.” I turn my attention to getting a map of the city … there’s a block of them on the desk. Inadvertently, I tear off two maps, and fold them into a more useable size. Immediately, she reaches across to take them away from me and removes one copy. Really? Now the motel has a folded, creased map … which might have been useful to me when researching my travel articles back home, but is pretty useless to the motel. There is nothing wrong the rooms (cleanliness, facilites etc.) But everywhere else across New Zealand, we found folks helpful, welcoming and full of great advice. Thus, our reception at Admiral Court really stands out.

Hi there, first of all, yes, we have vacancy sign on, but we informed you that you booked was a studio unit. We had non left down the back. On the booking there was no special request in advance, so this caused us couldn't shift you to other studio units which away from the main road at check in, because they were all had guests in already. We do have other rooms but were two bedroom and three-bedroom house if you would like to pay the big difference at mentioned. Of course, we can offer you them.

A nice kitchen with good equipment, and a clean bathroom with quality toiletries was appreciated. The main room itself was pleasant as was the bedroom. It was warm in Invercargill when we were there, and the heat was particularly noticeable in the bedroom. The staff were friendly, but some had little English so any conversation was limited.

I am fuming. I just phoned to try arranging accommodation and I’ve honestly never been spoken to so rudely on the phone before. I would highly recommend never staying or even calling this place. I phoned to ask if they had availability and she snapped at me saying "what date" and I then proceed to say and she said only 3 bedrooms left and I politely asked for the rate and it was far too much, so I declined and all she said was bye and hung up, didn’t offer a solution or an apology. I don’t know if this was the owner or a worker but I sure as hell wouldn’t want someone like that working for me, and if you were the owner, I would have thought you would care more about keeping your customers happy and encouraging them to come back and stay.

Hi there, you go me on the phone, and I was very polite to you by asking which day you are looking for. Absolutely not like you said "what date", I never every say "what date". The rate I offered was already a cooperate rate for direct booking with us. However, you don't want to take. So, I friendly said alright bye. I did the best I can do, if you think that was still far too much for you and you don't want to take that's fine. I don't know why I should do an apology for the rate that you don't want to take. I gave you option, but you don't accept, then I should do an apology? Before you judge people who you don't know, you should learn how to state the truth, not mislead others.

We had a great stay!! The room was nice and warm when we arrived and super clean. Very quiet at night and can't hear any road noises. No restaurant on-site, but easy to drive to town with so many choices. The room also with a kitchenette and cooktop to make food yourself which is very convenience if you don't want to go outside to have a meal. The staff also recommended some delivery restaurants that you can just feet up in the room with a meal. Very nice room and service, we will highly recommend!! Thank you!!

We booked this facility for our coaches to stay in while attending a National event in Invercargill. The coaches were happy with the rooms, but the service was appalling. The lady on reception was very grumpy and extremely unhelpful. We wanted meals to be delivered for the coaches, that they could simply heat up after a long day of coaching, but she would not accept the delivery to reception! In addition her communication regarding the room rates was not clear, which resulted in us under-charging those who stayed in the rooms.

Hi there, thank you for your feedback. Regarding the meal deliver to the reception. It was after 3rd times the people came to reception and ask if the meal you guys ordered from outside been delivered? but we did not received, so we suggested it's better to inform the people to deliver the meal to your room directly than to the reception. During the event period, all our rooms rates were increased like other hotels and motels did, because the whole town was full. It was quoted very clearly on the quote at the very beginning. If you guys were not happy with the price, it was easy to not accept and we could easy to sale to someone else. However, you did not argue with the rate during the whole time, but want a refund after left. It was actually not the right way to do this. The booking was made 1 year before. It should be plenty of time for you to decline the booking if you think the price was unclearly, instead of argue after you leave.
