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.

Sobresaliente
Estupenda casa con un fantástico jardín, tienes todo lo necesario para pasar tus vacaciones. Los dueños son encantadores y muy serviciales, viven al lado, pero no les notarás. La vivienda está muy limpia, y tiene muchos detalles que te harán sentir como en casa. Indispensable coche. Si vas por Newark este es tu lugar.

We had a lovely midweek break, Heather was there to greet us and show us around. The cottage is comfortable, homely, very well equipped and has a spacious garden the welcome pack was very good. Averham is a small village near the river, the pub is about a mile away and served good food. Southwell is close for shopping as is Newark with it's market days. It is an ideal base to visit Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire Wildlife Park at Doncaster. Flo's is an ideal place to relax, so peaceful, we would highly recommend.
