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.

We stayed for 1 night prior to a visit to Hobbiton. Lovely room with a huge bed. Described as a lake view which it probably was at one stage but now the tress have grown the lake isn't visible. Plenty of parking outside. We didn't eat dinner at the hotel but there are plenty of places for food nearby. We ate at the Koi Whiskey bar almost next door. I would stay here again if in the area.

This is a nice new hotel/motel with a good vibe. It is located among a cluster of shops and has parking at the front. The building is quite attractive, especially from the outside. The room was typical of a 3-star hotel/motel. Breakfasts, included in the room rate, were quite good. Room rate itself was very reasonable. I recommend this place for a one-two night stay if you are wanting to visit the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. Be sure to visit the Zealong Tea Estate on the drive back to Auckland.

We stayed here as a family as a stopover for 1 night in December during our tour around the North Island and used it as a base for visiting Waitomo caves and Hobbiton. Great little hotel, friendly reception desk and a good sized room. In a super location in Cambridge. We were able to walk to a grocery store (Countdown) across the road to get some essentials and we picked up some dinner from Hell pizza on the way back. Plenty of restaurants in the same location as the hotel and just a few minutes walk into town. I would definitely stay here again if I was in Cambridge.

This is a very nice, business-style hotel. Spotlessly clean, it's got good parking and a *beautiful* lake just out back. Best of all, they have a free, private hot tub/spa available upstairs. No kitchenette, but otherwise, this clean, friendly place is a winner.

This is a cute little town and we stopped in order to see the glow worm caves the next morning. Overall the hotel was very efficient, the room was very good and comfortable, the price was a bargain. We ate dinner a couple of blocks up the road at the brew pub which was very good. The restaurant looked a little sad but they are trying I’m sure. No complaints at all.

Really comfortable stay, friendly service and good amenities. Close to various shops and eateries. Breakfast was really nice. The lake is truly a hidden delight and great for an early morning walk. Highly recommend.

This Hotel is very new and the customer service is excellent. Every person I interacted with was friendly, helpful and happy. I arrived at 11:30pm at night, rang the phone number and the phone person and the person that opened the doors late at night was very friendly. In the morning we had breakfast onsite as it was included with the booking. The service staff were again, cherpy, kind, gave fast friendly service and the breakfast quality was excellent. I recall my mother saying " This bathroom looks brand new, never used before". It was an nice enjoyable stay after a busy day.

Overall this is very convinient run by very nice staff.

I could live there without issue! What a great place. Lovely folks always so courteous and helpful. Genuinely enjoyed my time there. Not just a lovely hotel but everything you want is just outside of reception with a array of shops. I will be back!
