Guest Reviews from AA Traveller Website
"The hospitality of my hosts was top quality to say the least. Thoroughly enjoyed their company. The residence was beautiful, clean and my ultimate requirement when travelling on business - quiet and restful. They do have kennels and are keen animal lovers. It did pass my mind this could be a problem, but I am pleased to say the only time I heard the dogs bark was when I ventured into the kennels for a look. I highly recommend this establishment to anyone travelling to Gore and most definitely will be returning."
"Bruce and Jayne were the most amazing hosts. They went the extra mile on everything - even as far as us lending their car on arrival until our transport was organised. We came home with a suitcase full of clean washing, enjoyed the most beautiful cooked breakfasts - complete with fresh laid eggs and home made jams from their own fruits. We had an extremely busy 4 days work wise, so the peace and quiet that the Reservation offered was very much appreciated and enjoyed. I cannot speak highly enough of our stay. Thank you Bruce and Jayne. We enjoyed many laughs and interesting conversations. Highly recommend anyone to stay here and we most definitely will be back. "

Guest Reviews from Trip Advisor Website
"Found this to be a good stopover visiting Te Anau (Doubtful Sound cruise) and going to Dunedin (Taieri Gorge Railway). 5 - 10 minutes from Gore (which has many places for dinner), in very quiet location. Double room with ensuite (blue room). Good shower room. Separate lounge/breakfast room for all three rooms to share. Cereals/fruit/toast laid out and help yourself. Cooked option at extra cost availabe. Rooms have central heating - rare in NZ."
"What a fabulous experience we had for our four day stay Jayne and Bruce went out of their way to make our stay at their beautiful B & B one out of the box. It was serene and peacetime time for my husband and me and our friends. The beautiful building the superb rooms and their hospitality blew us away. We intend to make this our special second home when visiting Gore. Fabulous."
"This home is immaculate. Pet friendly and incredibly quite & peaceful. We were so pleased to stay somewhere that was so new, fresh and beautifully decorated. The attention to detail to ensure the guest is comfortable blew us away. I would highly recommend 'The Reservation' and looking forward to staying again. "
Guest Reviews from Booking.com website
"After hastily booking accommodation at the last minute, we were treated to a great surprise when we arrived at the modern and very clean house on the edge of gore. After friendly greeting like we were old friends, a quick tour showed off the spacious room and equally large bathroom. As a busy young couple, my partner and I were in and out for both nights of our stay. Jayne was even kind enough to let a friend stay on a fold out bed at very late notice. On top of doing our laundry and cooking a wonderful breakfast, Bruce and Jayne are exactly what you look for in a host- friendly, accommodating, helpful and welcoming. It felt like we were staying at an old friends, even the price was mates rates! Could not recommend a stay here highly enough!"
