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.

Just returned from five nights stay at Tinakori. As with our previous stay Janet and Ian were incredibly welcoming and made us feel right at home.
Our eleven year old son did not want to leave he enjoyed it so much, especially feeding the baby wallabies.
Definitely worth a visit for anyone who loves wildlife and creating wonderful memories which will last a lifetime.

The accommodation is lovely with plenty of room and a great kitchen, the hostess Janet is so lovely and takes everyone out to feed all the animals every morning. Great for the kids to see a working farm and meet all the lovely animals. The adults had a lovely time as well chilling round the fire with guitars and mulled wine. There are dogs, emus, kangaroos, wallabies, lambs, ducks, geese, cockatoos, corellas, donkeys, quails, guinea pigs and a great big pig called Pablo. Highly recommend unless your don't like animals.

We came as a post HSC road trip and absolutely fell in love with the farm. We were initially met by 3 of the most attention seeking and friendliest dogs who were happy to join us and show us the deer, emus, chickens, ducks, Sam the cockatoo, guinea pigs, Pablo the pig and everyone else. Janet, our lovely host, took us outside to be met by a group of kangaroos waiting to be fed dinner and watching Rose the joey hopping down the hallway was something I'll never forget! Could not recommend staying here highly enough! The rooms and area we were given were spacious, clean, tidy and very home-y.

Stayed at Tinakori for two nights. The cleanliness of the accommodation is a slight drawback, but that's not from a child's perspective - you have to remember that this is a working farm. Our grandchildren were thrilled to touch and feed kangaoos, guinea pigs, and lots of ducks and geese. In fact we counted and cane up with a total of 22 animals/birds seen over the weekend. There was a friendly pig whose bristles were so hard! Musn't forget the cockatoo, peacocks, emus, deer, kookaburra. A great time was had at this most peaceful setting.

We stayed four nights at Tinakori and the only draw back was the cleanliness.

We used two rooms of the farmhouse and found it well equipped. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space inside. Two bathrooms were handy for the family. The kitchen was very well equipped.

Janet called the children every morning and evening for the animal feeding time and they loved it - ducks, geese, chickens, guinea pigs, cockatoos, peacocks, sheep, kangaroos, emus, deer and an enormous friendly pig. Almost a zoo! The children were free to roam and play with the dogs any time. There was a trampoline, totem tennis and plenty of bikes to ride. After busy days touring around, it was great to come back to a space where the kids could run free and relax.

A lovely setting, looking out on the little lake and so many birds. It's nothing fancy (and a good clean would be helpful) but it was just right for us.

4 girlfriends and I stayed at Janet's Farm overnight when looking for last minute accommodation.

On arrival we saw a number of chickens, dogs, peacocks, emus and other animals.

We received a tour of the accommodation from Janet and were very amused and delighted. It was like walking into a time capsule! Teddy bears on every bed, velour curtains and blankets. The rooms were quite musty, but we opened up the windows and sat on the back deck admiring the kangaroos!

Later that night as we got the fireplace going, Janet told us to come in to see the feeding of the wallaby and joeys. It was a nice touch. Unfortunately we slept in and missed the animal feeding in the morning.

All in all basic accommodation but excellent experience for animal lovers. We were glad the money for our stay was going to a good cause.

On arrival, we had a warm welcome and found a clean and tidy accomodation waiting for us, even if furnishings were dated. The highlight was the animals after all. And there were animals! We were allowed to help feed the orphan kangaroos and wallabies - but there were plenty more as well - cockatoos (some talking), emus, pig, calf. Crazy chooks everywhere - you had to smile. A very special place, with a lovely couple utterly devoted to their animals. Feeding time was 7 in evening and 7 in the morning. So it is well worth booking an overnight stay - and the money all goes to feeding the animals.

Thank you Janet for a wonderful farm stay. Your hospitality and passion were evident throughout our 3-day stay. The children thoroughly enjoyed the hands-on farming experience and with so much to see and do, Tinakori is a must for every family willing to get back to nature, connect with one another and live in every single moment.
