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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Very welcoming and comfortable
The house is ideal for relaxing and getting away from the city. You can't help be impressed with the attention to detail - nice towels, great bedding and flowers etc throughout the house. Really enjoyed the fireplace in the living area as it provides a central focus. My only suggestion would be a 'house guide' as we struggled to work out heating. We also couldn't get Foxtel to connect and had trouble with the modem for WIFI. Once the heating was working and we got WIFI, we had a wonderful stay. Highly recommended.

absolutely perfect, great set up to wine & dine with friends
This place had everything you require, from a lovely dining room to sit with friends, two outdoor areas, afternoons sitting in the gazebo to breakfast outside the kitchen. Kitchen had everything to offer, and to have three bedrooms with three bathrooms what more could you ask for. Loved our stay, great for a girls weekend

Thank you, we look forward to your next visit. Next refurbishment is the garden, as you saw. It's going to be a special winter of daffodils and spring of tulips!

First Class Accommodation
My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Fairbank House Maldon, Victoria. This is really a lovely place to stay. The house is set on a large block and embraces the old and the modern. It has been lovingly restored to enhance the beauty of the old and the convenience of the modern. Beautifully decorated inside with an impressive attention to detail in every aspect. Very cosy and comfortable, specially with the open fire which we thoroughly enjoyed on the cold nights. I would not hesitate to recommend this property for a stay in the historic town of Maldon.

Home away from home
Stayed here for two nights as a birthday gift for a friend. We were delighted with the comforts and set up of this wonderful home. It is tastefully decorated and has everything you need to make yourself at home. We each had beautiful spacious bedrooms and there was a third room with twin beds as well. Enjoyed our Maldon experience very much!
