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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The motel has a lovely restaurant and the long time owners are so friendly and flexible. Due to flight cancelations Trish moved my booking and allowed a late check out. Genuine friendly country service and a lovely garden setting to mingle with other people.

We stayed on our trip over the Savannah Way. The motel is relatively old and the accommodation adequate but not great. We dined at night and the food and wine were basic . Perhaps I expected more but I think the motel is tired and the food and particularly the wine was not up to scratch in this modern day

We were welcomed with a nice personal letter and treated with a delicious meal which they had prepared for us. We stayed in Cabin 5. This cabin was huge, with very comfortable beds (one queen bed and two single beds). It's really important for me to emphasise that the room was extremely clean.
