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.

Great stay in Geraldine, not far from the centre of town (5min drive). We stayed mid winter but the room was nice and warm. Comfy bed and great shower. Host, Ken and Jenny were helpful and friendly and we had an outstanding cooked breakfast. This house is in a beautiful garden setting. Ken is happy to give you a quick tour and is a very knowledgeable gardener. This was a great find and the reviews reflect the excellent quality and value of this B&B. The Indian restaurant (Jenny recommended) in town is excellent, one of the better Indians we have had anywhere.

Riverstone House has the most beautiful garden guests can enjoy while listening to the bird song. Jenny and Ken are wonderful hosts, most interesting and nothing is too much trouble for them. As a bonus, for us they have decorated their home with exquisite Christmas decorations making an already superb home stay truly magical. Definitely the highlight of our holiday.

If you are planning a stay in Geraldine we cannot recommend Riverstone House highly enough. Ken and Jenny (and Misty) welcomed us into their beautiful home with fresh filtered coffee and cookies. The upstairs bedroom overlooked the perfectly groomed gardens and presentation was '5 star'. As the other upstairs bedroom was unoccupied we had the spacious bathroom to ourselves - complete with a panoramic view of the rolling countryside! Perched on a hill just out of the town, the property is an easy walk into town or a choice of walking tracks. Breakfast was a treat - with a choice of continental or a full cooked meal.

Not sure what to expect but honestly have to say that this is the best BB that we have ever stayed in. The hosts are genuinely customer friendly and the facilities are outstanding. The bed was really comfortable with plenty of hot water for the shower and plenty of room in the ensuite. Breakfast was basically anything you want from a cooked English breakfast to cereal, fruit, toast and orange juice and tea/coffee. Very quiet spot with great views out to the bushy garden on one side then out onto the plains on the other.

We had a comfortable stay here in their downstairs queen bed room. Jenny and Ken were wonderful hosts. They helped us reheat our leftover pizza for dinner, and allowed us to use their clothes washer and dryer. We enjoyed our dinner on the patio outside our room, amongst the beautiful garden and singing birds. We really enjoyed petting and visiting with their two cats, Misty and Cocoa. The room had everything we needed and the breakfast was plentiful. Very enjoyable and restful stay.

Welcomed by gracious and friendly hosts Jen and Ken, and had a lovely, very comfortable stay in an upstairs King bed suite apartment, in a beautifully appointed garden home. Lovely traditional full breakfast, easily modified for vegetarian tastes ! Thank you for the welcome, the stay, the great breakfast to the start the day, the lovely chats, and the advice about local places and attractions !

This Bed and Breakfast is set in a beautiful native bush setting, and is very quiet. The hosts are very friendly, clearly garden enthusiasts and it’s genuine Kiwi hospitality at its very best. It’s less than a 15 minute walk into the town for dinner possibilities. Very comfortable bed, and very clean room. The breakfast menu was well thought through and was riddled with home made delights. We were certainly treated to the best, I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who enjoys a well cared for property with no traffic noise.

We had the most beautiful stay at the Riverstone House B&B in Geraldine! We arrived late in the evening as we were driving all day to reach Geraldine but Ken and Jenny welcomed us with tea and home made cakes (delicious Jenny!) and made us feel at home right away. We stayed in 2 bedrooms on the first floor with our own big bathroom and bathtub, everything was super clean and private and we had a good night sleep in the comfortable beds. Breakfast was prepared by Ken and he catered to all our egg-wishes, we also had the choice of cereals, toast, juices and sides for our eggs. Most of all we enjoyed the company of Ken and Jenny who were terrific hosts and offered us a home away from home. We have already recommended the Bed and Breakfast to our family and friends and will definitely stay again when returning to New Zealand for another holiday. Thank you again for your hospitality ! Warm regards, Chrissi, Meiki and Sonja from Germany

We loved our stay at Riverstone House B&B in Geraldine and would gladly recommend this property to anyone interested in a good night's sleep and delightful breakfast. The house and associated grounds are beautifully cared for by Jenny and Ken. They were both extremely friendly and very open to conversation. We stayed in the ground floor room. The room was nicely decorated, sparkling clean and the bed was very comfortable. The room included a sizeable ensuite with shower. There was also small fridge and tea/coffee station. For breakfast, while we had the option of a hot cooked meal, we chose a selection of cereals with fruit, toast and jams (we couldn't convince ourselves to tackle the Marmite...maybe next time!) After breakfast, Ken kindly shared a tour of the beautiful gardens. Thank you so much for your hospitality! We look forward to our next visit! Maggie and Greg
