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.

Was camping there. Was given a site by the receptionist, and went there and set up the tent. About an hour later, someone, I assume the manager, came up to me and asked if that was my tent. When I said yes, he told, not asked, told me I had to move because another group, arriving later had dibs on that site. When I explained that was the spot I was told to go, he said that person didn't really work there and he was down to less than half staff.
He attitude made me feel very unwelcome, so we packed up and left.
I put a review on Google Maps, and his response is attached below.

We went horse riding (didn't stay overnight) and the experience was overall really good. We were the only ones on the trail ride, and the lady who took us was really lovely and the trail was amazing. We got to walk through the water and through a variety of different areas. The only downfall was, we were told to arrive 15 minutes early when I called on the phone to book, however when we arrived I think the owner, was really annoyed with us that we weren't half an hour early and made a really big deal about it which was quite intimidating and unwelcoming. But apart from that the horse ride itself was really great and I would go again.

Thanks to the owner he managed to squeeze me, my husband and 2 daughters onto a trail ride. The day arrived and it had been raining the previous night, the owner was very adaptable and just changed the times of our ride. We had our ride with our family of 4 which was lovely. Scenery was beautiful, riding through the river was awesome. The guides were knowledgeable, but a bit inpatient and at times brash with several comments that were made in particular by the leader.
The horse that I was on was so slow and kept trotting without warning to catch up to the others. I’m a novice horse rider so it startled me the first few times it happened. Overall though it was a fun experience.

The place smelt like dirty old people. Was told we had to stay for two nights if we wanted a room. Agreed THEN got to room and discovered it had no AirConditioning. 46 degree day 😥
Left next morning after being woken by a large spider on my hand. Doesn’t look anything like the photo s online. Soooo disappointed. NEVER AGAIN!!!

Amazing team, knowledgeable and very friendly they treated us very well - shout out to Rex and Tom who help us with our car troubles! The team go above and beyond to keep the horses safe (especially in the summers heat) healthy, and happy. Kenny the Clydesdale won our hearts! Accommodations good, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen were clean and tidy. All the horses were fantastic! We can’t wait to come back. Highly recommend!

Looked really good and we were really looking forward to a trail ride. Made the mistake of trying to book over the phone. Unfortunately when it came to the time of confirmation our booking hadn't made it into the system and as a result we missed out. I recommend booking online to secure your spots.
