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.

Myself and two other girls stopped in Knaiva on the way back from Adelaide and discovered what a treasure Christine is. She went out of her way to make us comfy,,, even negotiating with the local hotel for our dinner! Her cooked breakfast is better than many restaurants I've been to in Melbourne and half the price!

It's Day 8 of our road trip and our 8th road trip motel. What a breath of fresh air it is to enjoy an authentic country motel. Checkin and payment were easy. Yes, the room is dated but it is also priced accordingly. Plenty of bottled water provided in the room also. The absolute highlight of our visit to Kaniva was the $12 cooked breakfast served in the front dining room. Just read that again, Jan 2024 - $12 cooked meal. What a great start to the day of travels and we didn't need lunch.

Clean, affordable and plastic free with thoughtful extras like chilled bottled water, natural brand toiletries, breakfast options and generous biscuits etc. Most outstanding is Certina herself, the kindliest soul ever, who will look after you and whose cats are testimony to her gracious and attentive care. Also pet friendly if you book ahead. Outstanding service.

My husband booked in, said the lady was friendly and as we had made the booking the day before was giving us her best room. Once inside it became clear it had seen better days. Bed was not well made, shower was dirty. Trying to open the front door from the inside was difficult, it stuck each time. The kettle worked once, then stopped, didn’t work again. Hot water in the shower only lasted a short time before it went cold. There was a small supply of coffee, tea, sugar, milk. Soap in bathroom and shower. I wouldn’t stay again.

Look, the lady was very friendly and her breakfast room and cooking was awesome. Basic facilities were provided in the room which was neat and the towels provided were awesome. Parking outside the room was good. The location is also brilliant… but… The rooms fixtures were very dated and tired, some falling apart like a lamp, the table had a seriously loose leg, tiles lifting in the bathroom etc. Also, the kettle was left in the cupboard with water still in it. The rooms, especially the bathrooms badly need renovating and better cleaning. The worst thing was that it appeared that the bedding hadn’t been changed from the last time it had been slept in. There was a spot of fresh blood on the top sheet, the pillows were very old and worn. There was mo soap provided in the bathroom at all. I can’t in all good conscience recommend this hotel at all.
