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.

Fantastic location. Unfortunately room 8 doesn't contain the 'luxury' that signage states. It smelt absolutely revolting & we had to resort to wasting expensive perfume so we could tolerate the smell. The cleanliness was seriously lacking. It's the little things that count for a good review or a bad review. When booking the room for 3 adults, back in August it was discussed with Tom that 3rd adult would sleep on the sofa bed in the living area. The sofa-bed wasn't even made up, nor was there linen to do so. Not to mention the sofa was not of fit state to be sitting on, let alone slept on! Had to resort to rearranging the sofas & putting the single mattress on the floor of the living room to be slept on. Pretty appalling for what you pay for 1 extra adult. The carpet was very badly stained. There wasn't even sufficient numbers of cutlery for the 3 adults staying. Plus only supplied 2 single serves of long life milk on arrival. Very loose & unsafe plug in kitchenette. The towels were of poor quality & smelt absolutely awful! Not too mention we had to chase up clean towels each day over our 4 day stay! The vanity was extremely cracked so looked filthy & needs replacing. The shower curtains were so discoloured & mouldy. The water smelt disgusting so didn't bother using the spa. Normally I would discuss this with property management. However when we had management pass us in the carpark on more than one occasion & not even say hello, I thought I'd be wasting my time. So all in all a very expensive disappointing stay.

This hotel is located a short walk to the harbour area and les than 10 minutes walk into the main street. Very close to restaurants, shops and day tours. The room was neat and tidy, although I probably wouldn't call it luxury. It had all we needed for our stay.

Only stayed for one night but we will be back!
This is a very well located motel offering quality accommodation. The check in was welcoming, the room spacious, the bed comfortable and the shower great. There is the standard kitchenette facilities so we were truly self contained.
Would return in a flash.
Recommended.

Tresori is well appointed motel. Easy off street parking. As a motel it had the basics for cooking.

The bathroom was alsoclean and hot water was hot. Electric blanket on a comfy bed.

Staff were friendly. It’s very close (very short walk) to the shops and restaurants.

Internet was fast too.

My wife and I booked in here for a romantic getaway. we upgraded to a spa room where the advertising showed a beautiful view. The room we were given was clean but there was no view we were tucked in corner with one window looking out to the rubbish bins and the other window looking into the carpark with no view.
We were charged when we checked in, I found this strange as everywhere else \we have stayed in NZ and around the world we have always settled our account on check out. The jug didnt work

Hi Warren, Thank you for your review. We really appreciate you upgrading to the spa suite and choosing Akaroa for your romantic getaway. We are very disappointed that you were not happy with your stay and that your view was not as expected. We do manage a number of different styles of accommodation so perhaps the advertisement was for the Bruce Waterfront Apartments and not the Tresori Motor Lodge, as the Bruce Waterfront Apartments have an open balcony with waterfront view. We would have been happy to offer an additional upgrade if we had known about your disappointment. We would love to have you both back in Akaroa once again so please give us a call directly on 03 304 7500 and we can work out a special offer.

Three friends stayed in a 2 bedroom upstairs unit for 2 nights on a wet weekend. The rooms were warm with a very efficient wall fan heater. Electric blankets were on the beds. Everything was clean and the kitchen well equipped. There was no stove top or oven but a microwave and fry pan, sandwich press and toaster. The owners recommended the fish n chip shop across the road called Murphys for dinner and it was amazing. Highly recommend the motel and the fish and chips. The accommodation is steps from waterfront, shops and walks.

Only stayed one night in this beautiful town. The Motor Lodge was very comfortable, we had a lovely one bedroom suite. We understand the relatively new owners had undertaken some redecoration and certainly wouldn't complain about our room.
Located in the town but no view to speak of.

To call the accommodation “Luxury “ is misleading. Uncomfortable beds, kitchenette was just a microwave, (although the manager was very helpful and offered to put our meal in his oven), stuck away in a corner with no view of anything at all. Good staff and clean, but not what we were expecting.

Disappointed with our stay at Tresori motor lodge. Firstly it is anything but luxurious. There is no air conditioning available- only a fan. Furthermore there is no WiFi in the room despite what is advertised. Despite us informing the management several times (together with other guests) that the WiFi was not working, their only answer was - what do you want me to do?

The only good thing about this hotel is the fish and chip place opposite the hotel which serves the best fish and chips in town!!

The location was good, but I think 'luxury' is a bit ambitious. Disappointing that most of the Sky TV options [apart from sport, which is not our thing] are accessible only if you already have a subscription. Surprising that there was no fan in the bathroom, especially within there is a spa. Comfortable bed and nice crockery. Friendly service, thanks.
