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.

The Deer Park Hotel is nestled in a beautiful spot surrounded by nature, making it perfect for anyone who loves peace and quiet. The pool was great for relaxing, and the shower area with the rain showerhead felt luxurious. The food at the hotel was delicious. The best part of our stay was when the staff surprised our parents for their anniversary. It was so thoughtful and made our trip extra special. Overall, The Deer Park Hotel gave us an unforgettable experience. It's perfect for a peaceful getaway with great amenities and delicious food.

Deer Park Hotel exceeded all expectations surrounded by lush greenery, offering a serene escape. The view made quite a difference as the lake view added a touch of tranquility, and the rooms were a perfect blend of comfort and style. Impeccably clean bathrooms and attentive service added to the delightful stay. Not to mention, the culinary experience was superb—fresh, flavourful, and diverse. Deer Park Hotel is a must for those seeking a peaceful getaway amidst nature's beauty. Highly recommend Deer Park Hotel for a memorable and cozy retreat.
