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.

Overnight stay was extremely comfortable. B&B rooms are in building at back of property - no noise. Well equipped spacious and comfortable common room with guests' refrigerator and kitchenette. Also outdoor verandah. Room and bathroom spotless, loads of hot water, comfortable. Breakfast choice limited but it was more than adequate and tasty . Belgian waffles lived up to TA reviews. A few blocks back from Rye pier well located for front and back beaches. Would be a good base for exploring Peninsula.

This was the most beautiful place with the best kept plants I have seen indoors and out . The pictures don’t tell the full story . The hosts are very nice and dedicated and the breakfasts are a work of art . After having a nice peaceful spa I had one of the best nights sleep . I hope I can return some day. It is close to so many amenities but away from the crowds

Australian plants are so unique and the birds love them too! Once again, thank you for the 5* and we look forward meeting you again. Kindly, your hosts, T&C.

The owners of the B&B were very friendly. The B&B is near the beach, cafe‘s and restaurants. The room‘s are standard. The breakfast was okay. If you want they serve belgian waffles and eggs in any variations.

Dear Susi & Martin H., Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts here on T.A. Also thank you for the nice photo's you posted! Though for us Susi, this is an underwhelming review. Rooms were 'standard'? Maybe you were no fan of our Scandinavian and minimalistic deco? That is okay though. Tastes differ. This planet would be a boring place if we were all the same. You see Susi, in our view 'less is more'.. but the rooms are far from standard. You also write; Breakfast was 'okay'? Think it is fair to say you didn't order much. In fact, don't think we are wrong if we noticed sickness? When you were here, our garden loved a full day of rain. We understand this can be disappointing for our travellers though, as you returned from your trip quickly. A shame the experience wasn't better, because we do strive for our guests to take beautiful memories back home. Wishing you all the best, Your hosts, T.&C. P.S. To our readers; The review below was posted same day, for a stay on the same day, from guests in another room.

Dear Karen, Thank you again for writing this 5* review for our place . If we are honest with ourselves, I guess we all want to feel valued for who we are and recognised for our accomplishments. It is important for us to know that our attention to detail was noticed and felt. It boosts our passion and gives us the energy to do what we do. And what can we do better than meeting genuine loving people like you two? Always welcome. Your hosts, T&C.

Where to start? Sunny Side Up is just lovely. It is fresh, clean, very Scandi-modern, and very comfortable. We stayed for just two nights, but would've loved to have stayed longer. I know our fellow guest felt the same. Our room was spacious, the bed was super comfortable, and the huge bathroom impeccably clean. Oh, and the beautifully prepared and presented breakfasts were really, really good. Theo and Carine were great hosts, and we really enjoyed our conversations with them. We can happily recommend Sunny Side Up to anyone who want to esceape the city and discover the nearby places where wildlife abounds.

Corine & Theo are wonderful hosts of this beautiful B&B in Rye. A lot of thought has been put into the decoration of the B&B and the bedroom. Full breakfasts were served in a beautifully designed dining area. Presentation was impeccable and the food was delicious. Belgian waffle on the first morning was extra special. Wish we could have stayed longer. An excellent experience all round. 5 stars out of 5

The communication in booking was superb. The hosts made a reservation for the hot springs as well. It is very cute here as well. The only thing for travelers to note is there are a lot of stairs to carry luggage and walk to the rooms. If you can’t carry a lot or walk stairs this won’t work for you. The amenities were super and breakfast also was wonderful.

Very clean. One bedroom. Quite spacious. Bathroom to yourself. Nice breakfast included. In a quiet street. Has a maximum of 3 couples staying. Breakfast was included on a seperate table to others. Breakfast was lovely. Hosts were friendly and helpful but gave you plenty of space. There was an undercover area with a bbq in a lovely garden.
