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.

The location was fantastic. Just across the road from the Hauraki Rail Trail track that we biked. Also has a great pub just below the accommodation. Basic kiwis bach style accommodation that suted our large group of 17 well. Just a things that could have made our experience better, host should make sure the place has been cleaned properly by the previous guests (especially the bathroom and toilets as these were filthy and the toilet in main bathroom had mold around the inside of the bowl and stank of urine so I had to clean it upon our arrival). Could do with a second fridge for when large groups are there. It sleeps up to 18 and one normal sized fridge/freezer just wasn’t quite enough. Also might pay to let guests know that the kitchen in the pub closes at 7pm as we got there on Friday for dinner at 7.30 only to be told they had already closed the kitchen. I understand it’s a country pub and this is often the norm and I probably should have thought to call the pub and check prior to our arrival but I thought this c have been highlighted on the accommodation information given that the pub is recommended. You also have to pre book for a gin tasting. All this just would have been good to have mentioned prior to our arrival just so our experience could have been even better than it was. We made it work though and all in all we had a fantastic weekend. Would come back again for sure 😊

House worked well for my 14mth old grand daughter too😊

House is large and comfortable. Excellent stay and value for money. Right above the Waikino tavern, where the food and atmosphere was awesome.

We enjoyed our stay. It’s an old property but not that bad actually. Will definitely consider staying here. 10 Mins to Waihi town and 10 mins to Paeroa town.

Close to a number of great things to do and places to drink and eat. We biked the gorge. Was great. The accomodation was roomy, tidy, decent and well located.

My family gathered from Napier, Feilding, Hamilton and Tauranga to stay together for a wedding nearby at the water lily gardens. The accommodation was perfect for us. Was an extra treat to see the glow worms nearby.

A group of us rented this property when we attended a wedding at Falls retreat. It was a 15 minute walk along the river. Situated just above the Waikino pub it was perfect for our weekend.
