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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The room was lovely and only beaten by the friendly hospitality of the lovely hosts. Loved the cooked breakfast every morning with views of the countryside that was the icing on the cake. We would gladly recommend this peace of paradise to all and the main bonus was they are dog friendly so I could have my best mate who was traveling with me

The perfect place for an overnight stay for our group of friends as we were returning from a trip to Fiordland. Shona and Brian were extremely friendly and accommodating, setting was absolutely spectacular, and rooms were lovely.

I randomly came across this wonderful place when googling for accommodation near Gore. Shona and Brian are fabulous hosts, and have a simply amazing b&b hidden away in the peace and quiet with a fantastic view. We highly recommend staying here, the accommodation and breakfast are both top notch, couldn't fault it in any way. Thank you for your fantastic hospitality and we will be back again when down your way!

We only stayed for one night as we were attending a wedding in the region, but the room was nice and comfortable, we would have been happy to stay longer! Our hosts were very friendly and even drove us back into Gore to pick our car up the next day. Would highly recommend this B&B. Stunning views, lovely accommodating hosts, and a clean, luxurious room.

Thankyou so much for the best sleep! Very comfortable stay and lovely hosts. I stayed while on the road for work and it was so much more comfortable and warm than a motel, room was warm and bed super comfy. Wifi excellent. I will be back 😊

This is an amazing getaway spot. High on the hills near Gore, it looks out over kilometres of farm land to the distant hills, bring your binoculars! The venue is clean, spacious and comfortable and our host Brian was so lovely (His wife Shona was away at the time). He was knowledgeable about local history and had some good recommendations for eating locally. Our room was so comfortable, had everything we needed and a front seat to those amazing views! Brian cooked us up a feast in the morning and we sampled some of Shona’s delicious marmalade. Wonderful spot!

Possibly the best bed and accommodation we have ever stayed at. A quiet location just off the beaten track, great views, great bed, excellent hosts and overall first rate. We have no hesitation in recommending a stay here.
