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.

Recently our hockey team had a great weekend staying at Makikihi country hotel. Our hosts were very accommodating, ensuring our team were well fed and slept like angels in well appointed rooms 😇. There was plenty of hot water and liquid refreshments for all. We will definitely be back to stay at this wonderful hotel. Thanks team

7 of us had a lovely lunch here. The atmosphere was great for an older style pub, the service by the owners couldn't be faulted and were very attentive. The meals were well presented, hot, and very tasty. We all had a lovely time and certainly will visit again and recommend this eatery to everyone.

We arrived outside of what we would consider normal eating hours to be greeted by friendly happy accommodating staff who directed us to a set table...lovely clean environment.. Menu selection was really great and food had the wow factor.. Not what we were expecting from a rural country pub... Service exceptional.. Would definitely stop again without a doubt.

Have driven past so many times so made the journey to finally eat here. We were so pleased we did. The menu was great with lots of choice and good value. We decided on the mixed grill for 2 people - it was excellent value and every item on there was delicious. Nice choice of beer on tap too. The staff were friendly. We will be returning again soon and would recommend you call in too!

The 4 of us dined outside as it was a lovely day. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was excellent. Only one thing dissapointing was my coffee was spilt into my saucer and it wasn't offered to be clean up. Other places at lease offer a serviette to place under the cup to absorb the liquid.

Absolutely bloody brilliant! Food service with a smile, flare, taste and high standard of care and great hospitality. Tonight was an unforgettable experience. From the time we arrived, until leaving, the staff were absolutely brilliant - the food and beverages delivered at a high standard. This local offered everything and we cannot thank all the staff enough. If you're ever in the area and in need of a rest, somewhere to eat or sleep - this is the place. Most certainly just became our new "local" - a great team of staff. Don't skip by next time you're passing, call in and experience it for yourself.

The Best Country Hotel We have stayed here twice now on route to events we are taking our food truck to. The service is exceptional, they happily save delicious meals for us when we arrive after kitchens closed. The rooms are clean, all you need for a stay over and continental breakfast to help yourself to before you hit the road again. Do yourself a favour and have the cheesecake.

We had been looking at this for a while so after deciding to visit partners family in Timaru (we live in Oamaru) we thought we would have dinner here on the way back. Amazing dinner menu and great value (can thoroughly recommend the pork and the salmon). The staff were absolutely brilliant and our meals did not take long to come out. If you think this is just another run down country pub in a “blink and you miss it” town, you need to think again. And if you’re keen - try the burger challenge!

It was nice sitting outside. Appreciated that dogs are welcome outside. Great gardens, cool playhouse for the kids. Menu read well (although quite expensive for lunch). It was a good meal just nothing to rave over. The young, blonde waitress was so lovely!

Called in for drinks on our way to a function. Friendly bar man. Great looking restaurant. The bar area was dated but nothing wrong with that, good old style country pub with a great pool table & duke box.

Food and staff are amazing, have been many many times and never had one bad meal. Stop for a meal and you will not be disappointed, outdoor/indoor and restaurant dining.

I rang the hotel to organise vouchers for mothers day and Zaley was extremely helpful and made the whole experience very easy to gift my mother a special night out. Thank you so much for helping me with a gift for my mum

We drive past so often but one day we timed it so we could see what was inside and couldnt believe the interior, friendly staff, and well the food. Simply delicious and priced well.
