Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we will post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We will also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉Stanley has some issues with TV reception, and the cricket reception was terrible on Australia Day!!
눇The balcony along the front of the house had awesome views, and it was right in the middle of all the local shops and restaurants!!!

눉Maybe a better kept garden but was there to look at the town not the house.
눇Met by friendly staff. Interesting display of art and record player was fun. Great view and convenient.
12 July 2016
눉The pathway was overgrown and a slip hazard. Had to take care when walking down to the road from property. This should be attended to so as to reduce the risk of guest injury.
눇Location and space of property. The house was comfortable with two bathrooms and well located within easy walking distance to the nut, hotel and beach areas. We walked everywhere given the central location.

눇Our stay at Sea Salt House in Stanley was just magical! It's pretty safe to say that we'd be back for an annual holiday if the fetes allowed! Our host Phillip was a joy. His eccentric taste and love of art flowing through the house in the form of quirky paintings and nostalgic touches of bric a brac. None more wonderful than the addition of a collection of vinyl records and a player. We had a great time educating our ten year old son all about the way we listened to music in the 70s-80s and plied him with a heaping helping of the classics. Sea Salt house sits at the base of the Nut over looking Main Street and with a brilliant outlook over the sleepy township, it's rolling hills and the picturesque beaches that frame it. Our favourite game was sitting on the balcony, watching the world go by and playing "Where's the... Brown dog?" The person who finds it first then gets to name something for everyone else to find. The accommodation is very cosy with a log fire and a snugly couch to cuddle up on in your doona. Before a big day exploring the Big Tree, Dip Falls and The Nut there is the Brown Dog cafe across the street and a chocolate and lolly shop next door. Not to mention the most amazing fresh seafood and fish and chips at Hursey's restaurant at the end of the street! OMG-heaven!

눉Didn't look anything like photos or description 'Luxury' was far from luxury in many ways... The house was dirty, cob webs and mold around windows, kitchen, oven and microwave was disgusting filthy! No privacy the owners live directly behind the house and could see straight in. When we rang to check in the owner forgot we were coming and didn't know who we were.. Blankets on bed were dirty and stained! Aswell as the couch, stains and disgusting odors. Mold and body hair in shower and bath room from other guests, not at all hygienic! Not even a face washer was supplied for guests.. Bbq area was aged and dirty not to mention the bbq was rusted and covered in cob webs. Could go on and on but I think my point is made..
눇Location, small town businesses and beaches.
14 January 2016
눉No basic supplies in fridge - eg milk or butter. Outdoor space is limited. Local restaurants all very expensive - even pub.

눉Cooking an omelette with frypan without a flat bottom surface was a challenge
눇Property is charming and well-located in a beautiful, quiet but civilised little seaside village. Art work was a plus.

눉The oven hadn't been cleaned.
눇The location was fantastic and there was everything that you could want for in the house. Philip was terrific and very helpful.

눉The windows in the second bedroom could not be opened to allow for fresh air. In the main bedroom, only one small window, above the bed, could be slid open, BUT there was no screening to stop insects etc from coming in. Face washers in the bathrooms would have been appreciated, along with considerably more clothes hangers. Four or five in each cupboard for two couples travelling together is totally inadequate. The blinds in both bedrooms were good for sun control and privacy during the day but failed miserably at night. When the light was on inside, people could be clearly seen from the streets outside. The car parking situation was an issue for our vehicle, a 4WD-too low clearance overheads/too thin for exiting inside the garage/driveway too steep for loading and unloading easily.
눇The location for accessing facilities within the town and for travelling out further afield was very good. Our host was extremely welcoming and amiable and after an initial "handover", Sealeft us to our own devices for the duration of our stay. Beds, quilts, linen and towels were lovely. The huge bunch of beautiful flowers on the kitchen bench on our arrival was a nice touch.
