This type of site/format is wide open to abuse. I have a couple of clients that are hoteliers and they both worry about false reviews, and post them against their competitors! Posting on these sites appears to be a skill that they're having to learn. It's also common for friends of hotel management to post fake glowing reviews. I think it's a numbers game and you need to go along with the majority of reviews. The same can be said for restaurants of course.
