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.

The Charlton is very basic but absolutely serves its purpose. A little outside of town, which isn’t really a problem with a car or good weather if you don’t mind a bit of a walk. Rooms are simple but functional. Beds aren’t the most comfortable. Bathrooms are clean. TV has Sky. Wifi is pretty patchy. Staff are absolutely lovely and can’t do more to help you or provide you with everything you need for your stay. Dunno if I would stay here again but I was happy for the 2 nights I was here with my wife and our 9 month old baby.

We spent one night when passing through Gore. The unit was clean and warm and we were greeted in a friendly manner. The average rating is more of a reflection of the units condition - we were in one of the older units. They are doing them up so once they are done it will be nicer. There was a bit of road/train noise but wasn't too bad.

Gore was a stopover place for us between Duendin and Te Anau. The motel was easy to find just off the highway. We were greeted warmly and made to feel welcome. Our room was modern and very spacious. Wifi was free and great quality which we loved being International travellers. The armchairs were so comfortable we could've slept in them. The bed was also comfortable and provided us with a great nights sleep. There was a full kitchen including an oven which we loved because we could soon a full meal for ourselves. There was a fridge which was a good size for our food. The only minor downside was that ventilation in the kitchen was a little poor so we ended up with a fair bit of steam from our cooking in the room. The bathroom was high end especially for the price. The pressure and temperature of the water were fantastic and made for a relaxing shower. The room was very clean and it is clear that a lot of love and care goes into these rooms. The carpark outside our room was also very handy. Can't fault this place at all. Would definitely come back.

We just arrived into Gore and the T.I. office found the room for us. Very happy with it. Had everything we needed, was nice and large and clean and warm with a comfortable bed. We had a unit around the back and it was nice and quite. Stayed 2 nights and could not complain about anything. Had a laundry , and the young man, Andrew, who checked us in was very helpful, looking up information for us. All units are ground floor which rates highly with us. No complaints at all.

We stayed here for one night but liked it so much we came back again on our way home. The units are very spacious with comfy beds and armchairs. The separate kitchen had a full sized oven so we utilized this by cooking our evening meal there. Great bathrooms with high pressure showers. The staff were welcoming and friendly. Would thoroughly recommend this motel to others. On the outskirts of town it is very easy to locate.

We loved staying at this Motel. We were lucky enough to get one of the newer units ( not saying the others aren't ok because we didn't see them ). Very modern, roomy and comfortable. Friendly staff in the morning when we explained that a previous guest had burnt something in the microwave. Couldn't have been more apologetic. Totally not their fault. We can highly recommend the Unit we stayed in.

We booked here last minute as a stopover on our way home. We had the 2 bedroom unit as we are a family of 5 and the price was very reasonable, so much so that we were a little scared that perhaps it would be too 'budget'. Need not have worried. Although the units are older the interior was very pleasing. It had everything we needed with a fully equiped kitchen, plenty of beds and space. The shower was AMAZING, so much water pressure. Even the beds were comfy. Owner was very nice and helpful and let our kids borrow DVDs overnight. Didn't have a problem with vehicle noise, heard the train once but let's face it, Kiwi trains aren't exactly long so it was over pretty quick. Can recommend the Charlton Motel to others and if ever we find ourselves in Gore again we'll be sure to book.

On the 3rd December I checked in for one night with a friend. The lady was lovely on arrival and very professional. We requested a later checkout of 12pm and that was accepted with no problems. We had a very enjoyable stay, the room was very presentable and spacious! I would highly recommend! 👍🏼👍🏼

Last minute once we received coverage and checkin was a breeze. Thoroughly would recommend this motel and host, lovely surprise to our long day. Clean warm and very comfortable studio unit, well equipped and very affordable. Host demonstrated nothing's a problem and couldn't help us enough into settling in. Thank you
