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.

This is beautiful boutique accomodation (midway between a small hotel and a motel) in Gore. We stayed for one night in December. The rooms are luxurious, with comfortable furniture, fixtures and fittings. The bed is incredibly comfortable. The accomodation is about a 10 to 15 minute walk into town, even closer to a large supermarket, everything a few minutes drive away if not walking. Breakfast isn't provided, but I got up early and walked to the supermarket to get breakfast which was very good, and there are a few cafe options nearby if preferred. Melody is very handy to the superb Eastern Soutlhland Gallery, with its fascinating Ralph Hotere works and John Money Collection (that's why we visited and stayed). The rooms did not appear to have an independent source of heating, and although it was early summer I found the 18 degree Celsius temperature (about 67 Fahrenheit) a bit too cold or cool for my levels of comfort (I like keep interior temperatures to about 22 degrees). Also some of the rooms didn't have much in the way of a view, just a corrugated iron fence next to frosted windows. My room looked out over the street which was fine. The whole accomodation was heavily scented and while I didn't mind this fragrance some people might find it a bit much. Apart from these areas, Melody is a beautiful place to stay in Gore.

Responded 27 Feb 2023
Dear Guest, Thank you very much for you beautiful review of our property. I am very sorry to learn that you didn't find the temperature in the room comfortable. We do have heaters but because it was summer we took them out of the way, however, we gladly provide them if requested. We also have a very think and warm blanket in the room, just in case anyone needs it. We are always here to make sure our guests have the most pleasant stay. All the best. Kind Regards

This motel is so good. The check-in process was the best and simplest I have ever experienced. The room is high-end for a mid-range price. Beautiful room with lovely touches. Amazing. Bath robes, slippers, luxurious bathroom, comfortable bed. Cannot say enough about this place. Totally recommend it!

Everything perfect about this place - a first for me travelling on business. Can't think of one thing I'd change and so nice to have decent wifi for a change!
Lovely but not over the top decor, very clean and tidy, reasonable tea and eating facilities (no cooking available in rooms but easy access to eateries in town and plates, cutlery, cups and glasses provided. Thanks for the nice stay guys.

As I am reviewing this hotel, I am still here and will be for another night. This hotel is run by a family and I have nothing but praise for the owners. I can assume the hotel is new as its in perfect condition. We have a room with a king size bed which is incredibly comfortable and I have been sleeping really well. Located in a nice quiet street with lots of parking next door and in the front of the hotel. Tea, coffee, all accommodated for. There is a microwave and wine fridge that doubles up as a small fridge for small items. I have stayed in hotels all over the world many being resorts and rated as 5 star, but this hotel is as my title says, the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. The bathroom is beautifully done and the workmanship 1st class. I really took a liking to the bathroom. Its obvious that the owners work really hard to keep their little hotel clean and tidy and they should be commended. Would I stay here again? Absolutely, without question. If you ever find yourself in Gore, stay at this hotel, you will not go wrong.

Great sized room and bathroom. Very clean. Great touches like good variety of teas etc, lovely biscuits and bottled water in fridge all included in price. Bed very comfortable. Could do with full length mirror, also a more comfortable chair in room. I walk on stick and found entrance a challenge a ramp would be much better. As the bathroom and bedroom are good sizes a ramp would then enable them to be disabled friendly.

Awesome king sized bed and outstanding bathroom. Beautifully clean and ultra modern and smelt great. Would stay again. Accidentally left some things behind in the wardrobe and they rang to tell us. Triple glazed windows, lush carpet and good heating.
