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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our stay was a perfect location for a busy sporting weekend. Judy was lovely and accomodation when the boys needed to use the BnB for resting before their next challenge.

Judy is a wonderful host and her guest house is lovely and thoughtfully appointed. Perfect for two friends travelling together. The garden is beautiful and we loved the outside seating. Beds comfortable and baths functional. I would definitely stay there again.

We loved staying at this rental for 3 nights. Quiet, set back house. Very, very clean and lovely for our family of 4. Hosts were fantastic and very happy to help with anything we needed.

Super clean and quiet guest suite very close to Cambridge, easy access to Waitomo glowworm cave, the Shire, and more. Judy was extremely friendly and helpful, she even called in to the restaurant we had selected to ensure we had a table. Accommodation was comfortable and well-appointed, everything you'd need in the kitchenette--including continental breakfast fixings. Wish we'd been able to stay longer and enjoy the private porch and beautifully manicured yard, would definitely stay here again!

A great location, close tot Hamilton, at walking distance away from Lake Karapiro. Very comfortable beds, rooms with separate showers and functional kitchen with nicely replenished basics like cereals, coffee. Judy is a very pleasant host, easy to communicate with and always available for help.
