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.

Arrived late and not sure as to where we are staying and found this must stay again gem.
The place was the quietest place we have stayed on our Southland visit and while arriving late entered into a well lite and very warm spaces room.
The staff are so friendly and made you laugh with the warm conversations and the owners are beautiful friendly and a lovely welcome from there cute little dog.
We will be back next year on our southern travels this place was what we needed for sure.

Friday through Sunday for a birthday weekend with our brother and his wife. It was a great place for the four of us. Recently refurbished and done with taste, colours and pictures all made a warm welcome. More space than we expected for a studio room, it came with kitchen, shower and separate toilet. Well cared for, tidy appearance overall, it was immediately obvious that the owners and friendly staff wanted their guests to be comfortable during their stay and be happy to return. Which we will!

Travelling around the South Island for two weeks (3 girls) and picking locations to stay randomly, we were thrilled to be pointed in the direction of the Andorra Motel. Previously we had been sharing 1 room, this establishment offered 2 bedrooms/lounge/kitchen/pool and there would be nothing you wanted that wasn't in this unit. It was pristine and the beds so so comfortable. We did not meet Brendan but Sally was amazing with her help/knowledge of the area and what we should not miss whilst visiting. I am now back in Oz and apart from recommending this place, I will be back.

Stayed 1 night in a two bedroom unit, which looked like it had been renovated. There was a heat pump which was welcome as the units were built of block and the unit was a bit cold when we first arrived. The grounds are immaculate and there was a play area for children and a swimming pool which would be great in the summer. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The motel was within walking distance to the Main Street in Geraldine where the shops are. Didn’t give full marks are there was no slice or tongs in the kitchen to remove our bacon and eggs from the pan and the tea bags were of poor quality and there was no hairdryer. Otherwise a great nights stay.

We booked The Andorra motel from home so just went with what we saw on the web site. We certainly were not disappointed. Lovely clean units well appointed and very quiet. The grounds and gardens were a credit to the owners. Another wonderful touch was being able to wash our car with every thing supplied. Having been touring for many days our car certainly needed it. What a thoughtful touch

Units set back from the road so no road noise. Very attractive gardens and good parking space. The motel unit was extremely clean and tidy and quite spacious. Good blackout curtains and comfortable beds. Attractive decor. Would definitely stay here again.

This was a great place to stay. It was clean and tidy and offered everything you needed in a motel. Staff were polite and helpful and owners went out of their way to answer queries. Quiet and off the road with plenty of facilities available. Would certainly stay there again without any hesitation
