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.

We really enjoyed our night at the property. We’d never been to Gore before, so the elevation overlooking town was awesome - it showed the town off beautifully. The property is new and beautifully presented inside and out. There were lots of places to sit and enjoy the evening. There were also a couple of talkative cockatoo to visit with as well as a giant Flemish rabbit. Jayne and Bruce were perfect hosts. They both greeted us and then Jayne showed us where everything was. They then left us alone to enjoy our evening. The next morning at breakfast, we loved talking with the two of them. A perfect stay!

Thank you for your lovely review, so pleased you enjoyed you stay. Very nice to hear you think the place is new, it is 10 years old now, he outside is still a work in progress :-) Hope your hike went well!

Flooding caused our family to change travel plans and we found ourselves looking for accomodation for a night in Gore. We were so lucky to happen upon The Reservation! We pulled up to their beautiful B n B and were astounded by the little paradise they have created with a stunning outdoor area, heaps of animals and the most comfortable and beautifully presented rooms. Jayne was instantly lovely and made up a box of toys for our one year old which was a god-send. In the evening we got to enjoy cups of tea and the chance to read our books in the guest lounge while bubba slept. In the morning over breakfast Bruce used his navigational expertise to find us a route up north avoiding the floods and road blocks. These hosts go above and beyond for their guests. Highly recommend and would love to come back.

We had the pleasure of staying at The Reservation over Christmas and wow! What a location! Peaceful up on top of the hill, clean tidy and the perfect spot for a family vacation (5 rooms heaps of space ) or if I am going for a quiet weekend with my partner it’s just as easy to book private room. Had everything we needed and more just turn up with your food and you are ready to go. A must stop on any South Island trip and Jayne and Bruce are fantastic hosts. Highly recommend

A very pleasant B&B and a good value. Good rooms (everything works), very clean an pleasant. Great breakfast. Nicest possible hosts that are a pleasure to talk to, brilliant views - and lots of animals. Twenty-odd chihuahuas, four alpacas, two outlandish hens, some goats - and a 56YO talking parrot! I’ll be back for sure!

Lovely location, excellent hospitality, very clean and lovely beds and accessories in the room. Great views from the rooms with high glass doors and private as well. Wonderful poddy animals in the front paddocks as you drive in as well. This place has it all, right down the the lovely handmade rhubarb for breakfast, to an awesome outside bar and fireplace. It overlooks the town of gore. Perched in a top spot. Well done guys, you have created a bit of paradise there. Will be back.

Thanks Jayne and Bruce for your Southern Hospitality. My self and the kids had a lovely stay this weekend. Beautiful surrounding, comfortable, warm, very clean rooms. The pets were a hit with the kids, especially Burt!! We will miss him greeting us each day!! A wonderful place to stay. We couldn’t fault it at all. The room was perfect and the breakfast was delicious. Looking forward to staying again next year when we are in town for the next skating competition. See you then xx

We stayed here for one night on our trip around NZ what an amazing place, Jane and Bruce the owners were very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. They also recommended a restaurant to us called Rustic which was great. Comfy bed and very spacious room. One night was just not enough we needed longer hopefully next time.

Beautiful scenery surrounding the entire property. House is very modern and gorgeous. The rooms were spacious, the beds were super comfy. Great water pressure for the shower. Very immaculate in regards to cleanliness! The hosts were extremely welcoming, friendly and were so kind and caring towards my puppy. With such short notice to stay in Gore, I'm so happy we chose this place. If you're an animal lover, you will LOVE this place! My puppy left super spoiled and loved by all! Highly rate my stay! 20/10! Definitely going to Gore again, just to stay here again!

Stayed for 5 nights on a golf trip. Absolutely outstanding accommodation and our hosts Jane and Bruce couldn’t have done more for us. Fabulous views from our accommodation. Amazing breakfasts. Loved our limo rides. This is the place to stay if you are visiting Gore. Enjoyed our chats with Bart! Exciting new developments happening at Reservation B&B. Thank you Jane and Bruce for your outstanding service.

Visited for a weekend away with 3 other friends. We were all blown away by the place. Friendly owners who couldn't do enough for us. When we questioned them about places to eat they referred us to 3 excellent places to dine. Absolutely no fault could be found with either the venue or the service we received and the views over Gore and surrounding hills were fantastic. Very relaxing
