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.

Stayed during a motorcycle trip with a few mates. This is the third time we have stayed here the service is excellent the food in the pub is of good quality and good value however this time we stayed in the units out the back of the hotel unfortunately there were guys drinking at the back of the hotel and making a racket until 4 in the morning which was really annoying getting woken up every hour . The rooms were comfortable as were the shared bathroom facilities however really really disappointed with the with the noise that the guys at the back of the pub with making the hotel management needs to control this before we would consider returning

An old style hotel right in the centre of Geraldine. The staff were super friendly and that made for a decent stay. Room decor was tired, bed was very soft and the bathroom had seen better days. A decent place for the budget conscious traveller.

Great old style country town hotel. Nice clean tidy rooms which have had a makeover in recent years. The older woodwork has been well maintained and carpets in good condition. The room had a good sized en-suite with a shower with good pressure. Good tv and tea and coffee making facilities. Comfortable bar facilities, but couldn’t use the dining facilities due to a lions function . Defiantly worth while staying here.

Travelling throughout the South Island NZ we stopped in Geraldine. We met Trish at the Heritage Hotel and although the room she could offer us was not suitable for 3 girls she did not hesitate to suggest alternative accommodation which was perfect for us...However because of her friendly upbeat manner we spent our two nights Geraldine at her pub. We played the pokies, had photos taken for the wall, had a few drinks and one of us (Lauren) was given a guitar to entertain the patrons. Trish is a gem to this place and we will return.

This accommodation needs a lot work done on it the sewer smell coming from the bathroom is terrible I can see why the window in there was wide open. The tap on the hand basin is about to fall off. Only good thing was the bed.

Called in for a beer and to be quite honest, it's just another pub. Be careful what you order as the beers on tap are not true to label. Not in a hurry to return any time soon.
Better value across the road.

I stayed five nights here and have never had such good night's sleep. Fantastic bed. Pure white bedding. Spotless bedroom with an air of calmness. The staff very helpful ,friendly and nothing was too much trouble....food in the restaurant excellent and very very reasonable price....I believe backpackers can stay here too for minimum cost..if you are ever in this area visit Geraldine ..Lovely small town and stay at the Heritage.
