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.

This was a delightful stop off on our trip to the North Island The scenery was excellent and we had tea and cake at their cafe in the garden. We didn't have time too do a tour of the fields Simply lovely.

The surrounding gardens and the cakes and coffee were good. However one of our party was in a wheelchair and there was no easy access from the car to the gardens and no access at all to the cafe indoors. The shop had some nice looking soaps etc but I couldn’t buy them because they don’t accept credit cards

Called into Lauren's Lavender Farm on our way to join the Forgotten World adventure, we shared a tasty scone and had a cuppa outside in the garden surrounded by a sea of mauve lavender and shaggy-headed hydrangeas coloured from white to purple. Of course visited the shop and came away with some goodies. We couldn't get down to the river as the path was closed due to slips, but we'd love to have a look another time.

We had a wonderful time at Lauren's Lavender Farm today. Lavender was in full blossom - lovely. We walked around, enjoyed the beautiful garden and had something to eat and drink at the cafe. We were impressed by all wonderful details in the garden and around.
We will certainly visit the Lavender Farm again.

Great spot to have a tea/coffee (wide selection) with a view of the lavender farm and countryside. There is also a walk down to the river (lots of steps, quite steep). We visited on our way to Whangamomona.

Beautiful place, however the first time we tried to visit they were closing. So we left and came back a few days later.
We found the lady to be rude, we can expect not wanting the kids in the shop, but she wouldn't even take our coffee orders until after she had caught up with the other order, then put other people ahead of us. Okay so that was fine, until she got really grumpy we walked on the grass on the outside of the plants. The sign says don't walk in the rows so we didnt. But she was highly rude about it. She may in the future want to think of having a sign that states no entry!

Highly recommend a stop at this tranquil spot right by the river - you can tell the owner has such a passion for her garden! We were very warmly welcomed even though a little early - great coffee and the best cheese and bacon scones ever! If you love lavender there’s a vast array of lotions and potions to purchase - you shouldn’t miss this idyllic slice of paradise at the start of The Forgotten Highway!

I’ve never encountered such unpleasant, rude and arguably racist service in my entire life. We arrived, missed the sign that had the list of requirements for entry and my partner asked to use the bathroom.
First question, where are you from? Second question, are you having coffees? Yes, we will.
My partner went to the bathroom and when she came out we took a photo, not knowing that it was illegal to have a photo without permission.

The same lady came and barked at us- we told you you needed to order coffee. You didn’t read the sign.
It would have been very simple to explain it to us but instead we received utterly horrific service. I’m white, my partner and daughter are Asian. Hence the reason the first question we experienced was where are you from? As opposed to a good morning? Table for three is it as you would expect anywhere else you travelled.

Simply disgusting service and presumably you have to ask for permission for photos of the lavender so you don’t advertise that Asian’s are welcome

Regrettable the lavender was not quite out but it was a great stop for coffee and homemade cake! We were made very welcome by the owner and would definitely love to go back to see the beauty of the vast lavender bushes.

Quite impressive all around, really liked the smell and the cleanliness of the rooms there. Drive through, worth a stop
