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.

This was easily the nicest accommodation that we stayed in during our 6 week tour of Australia and New Zealand. Lynsey and Paul are charming hosts who made us feel very welcome in their lovely home. The bed, bathroom and kitchen were top notch and we had the best nights sleep of our tour. We only heard the famous train once ! I wish the rest of our accommodation was as nice as the Homestead and that we were staying a few more days. Highly recommended 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Really nice place we loved it. We had the apartment upstairs and it was wonderful.Everything you could possibly want for a night stay. We were warned about the train but we didn’t hear it. Lovely welcome. The best place we stayed at in New Zealand. If you’re thinking of staying there then do because it’s really worth it

A delightful property, which is the owner’s home but has ensuite rooms. We had a ground floor room, which was a good size. The hosts were fantastic. We decided to take up the offer of a home cooked evening meal (the property is a car ride away from the main towns), which was delightful. Would highly recommend.

Lovely place to stay, the room was great (clean and tidy) and breakfast delicious. Home from home especially having the dogs in the yard. Paul and Lynley could not have been better hosts and very helpful in thinking about things to do. A great place to stay just outside Hokitika.

Fab place just outside of Hokitika, lovely hosts, well presented and maintained accommodation. Sadly we only had the one night here but would definitely recommend. West facing balcony with sea view where you can have a cold drink and watch the sun go down. Great touches by the host, cold beer and wine in the fridge plus home baked cakes. Quiet garden area downstairs if you’d prefer but all in all a great place to stop.

Lovely, short but sweet stay. We stayed here on our way down the West coast for only 2 night. We really didn’t stay long but enough to appreciate to comfortable room, really well designed and laid out with great amenities and touches - the beer, wine and cookies were nice as well as the toiletries provided. We had a really restful sleep and enjoyed a yummy breakfast the next morning with kiwi juice and homemade muffins and banana bread. Hokitika is a nice town - we got a pizza and ate it on the beach watching the sunset and aptly named sunset point and stopped off at the glow worm dell on the way back to the homestead. The owners Paul and Lyndley are friendly and it was great chatting to Paul at breakfast. Bonus we’re their two dogs who greeted you with howls when you get back - super cute! Really enjoyed the personal family style accommodation after some quite soulless hotels!

We stayed 4 nights in the Self Contained Unit ( 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, dining area, lounge,& outdoor deck area ) and it was amazing, so clean & spacious! The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could want, it even had a Nespresso coffee machine! The outdoor area leading out from the kitchen was a lovely spot to sit and enjoy the peacefulness and garden views. Lynley and Paul were fabulous hosts and made us feel really welcome - we will definitely be back!!

We stayed 1 night on our way through the west coast. Lynley and Paul were very accomodating to our little family. Room was very comfortable and clean well organised with some great extra touches. Grounds were beautiful our son had a great time playing around the homestead. Breakfast was amazing, Lynley even gave us some freshed baked muffins for the long drive. We’d highly recommend a stay here on your west coast adventure.
