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.

Ideal for an overnight stay. Arrived in the afternoon and were warmly welcomed by hosts Sue and John who then left us to ourselves. We had a lovely private area, comfortable bedroom, very large bathroom and small sitting room We spent a relaxing afternoon sitting on the our private patio overlooking the pretty garden.
It is only a short walk through a park to the main street of Geraldine where there are several options for dinner.
A delicious breakfast was served next morning and a very friendly and interesting chat with our hosts was a highlight.
Sue and John are the perfect hosts.

We decided to book the room for a romantic night and we couldn't have better.

First of all John and Suzanne is such a sweet couple! They want to make you feel at ease and will let you your own space.

Second, everything is perfect to be independent with facilities as oven pizza and barbecue or microwave and cutlery/plates. Tea and coffee as much as you want! Big TV with netflix and if you want they offer a 3 courses menu for 35$ each and 2h 4x4 drive around for 40$.

Furthermore, the bathroom is big with bath and shower and heater in the ground. The TV room is well heated with warm blankets. The room is not huge but so comfy and a huge double bed with electric blanket and heater.

And to finish everything an AMAZING healthy breakfast with juice, different milks, eggs, fruits,... Delicious!!

To summarize, home sweet home in even better!

Thanks so much!!

I got to experience all the home comforts on my journey back to Christchurch. I had the fortunate pleasure of staying at Sue and John's wonderful sanctuary in the heart of stunning Geraldine. They were so helpful and obliging when it came to accommodating my stay as well as recommending the town's hotspots. Their wonderful home is concealed within lush New Zealand scenery, giving a wonderful feeling of being in the bush. However, it's only a five-minute, scenic walk to the town centre. I had the best night's sleep and the food was of an excellent standard. I hope to stay again very soon. I recommend to anyone who is looking for a peaceful, quiet bit of respite. It truly is a piece of paradise. Thank you Sue and John for your friendly and bubbly service, as it was just what the doctor ordered!

Peaceful setting as described, however this was our first experience of arriving to breakfast where the host had also laid their breakfast at the table. We were asked if the host could eat with us, we agreed because we were put in a difficult situation. It would have been preferable if we were asked the evening before, because then we would have responded in the negative. We were keen to get going on our journey, but as we are polite we engaged in mostly listening to the host talk about herself and surveying us as to why we chose that particular B&B. We prefer peace in the morning not conversation, so we left later than we wanted to feeling irritated and annoyed.

The B&B delivered some surprises from listing details but provided comfortable sleeping and excellent continental breakfast with engaging hosts. We were surprised that the bathroom facilities were external across the hallway from our bedroom (although the design and fit-out were of very good standard), and the flat screen TV in the small entry lounge only showed Netflix menu with no TV channels. The bedroom was quite compact with limited space for suitcases, although well furnished. The cash only requirement was somewhat inconvenient compared to almost all other stays we have experienced.

We stayed with Sue and John in November on our way to Lake Tekapo. We received a warm welcome and had a very enjoyable stay. The bed was very comfortable, so that we didn't want to get up in the morning! The bathroom accros the corridor was modern and the showers were hot :).
The separate lounge area with tv (Netflix) was cosy and was only used when it got too cold to sit outside and enjoy the garden.
Breakfast the next morning was delicious! Muesli, eggs in any style, fruit juices, toast with homemade preserves and the company of our fantastic hosts, which gave us advice for our future trip and made us feel like part of the family.
We enjoyed our stay so much that, when we traveled back North, we stayed for another night and we were welcomed like good friends. It was a real pleasure to stay at Oldfields and we will definitely return when we travel this way again.

I've stayed in countless b and b's and thanks to a certain nose for these things, few have really been even indifferent. Oldfields is probably the best I've every placed my head on the pillow. I intend to stay four nights and remained for seven. Breakfast with the Jensen's was a highlight of my days in Geraldine and the facilities are top class with a private sitting room, bathroom and bedroom. Oldfields is handy for the Canterbury and Otago coast but I bet anyone making a booking here would not want to go much further than the attractive town in which it lies. In addition, it's very quiet and offers Netflix on a wide screen tv.

Thanks Til. It was a real pleasure to host you, but all good things must come to an end. I'm certain you've got straight back to an appreciative wife, an appreciative dog, not forgetting the goat, and into village life once again. Do come again and bring your wife with you when you next visit family, which I hope in measure, will include us.

Very nice warm and cosy accommodation. Only a short walk to restaurants and cafes for dinner. Great décor, very comfortable bed, and an awesome bathroom with bath, shower and under floor heating. Our breakfast was also very tasty, homemade, and our hosts Sue and John were a pleasure to talk to over it. This made our stay very enjoyable and I highly recommend as Geraldine is great for a nice peaceful break.
