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.

We stopped at the hunnyshop when we returned from Milford Sound. It was a super rainy day and driving was exhausting, so I decided to make a short break without any expectation 🤷🏻‍♂️ We ended up tasting the different kinds of honey and spent a hell of money for super delicious honey 🤣. Can really recommend this shop! Super friendly, super qualified and super delicious honey! My favorite honey is the „Wild Forest“, you definitely have to try this one - for me it’s the best honey in the world! I will definitely keep purchasing it from Germany once my 2 glasses are empty.
We as well found a good Manuka honey, but I found out for myself the special taste of Manuka honey is not mine.
Long story short… this shop is definitely worth a stop and I can highly recommend it 👍🏻

We went in for the free tasting but the owners were so nice and the thyme honey so delicious, we had to buy one. The best thyme honey I’ve ever tasted.

Dropped by this cute honey shop when I was in New Zealand and had tasted some amazing honey there. The owners were really nice and friendly people. Simply had to take buy 2 bottles back home and it makes me so happy that I managed to get them. Love love love the Thyme honey :)

We crossed the street from the Garston Hotel as we waited for our breakfast to be cooked. The friendly owner and his wife gave us samples of many types of honey. We settled on a jar of thyme honey which was delicious.

A friendly place to visit & sample from before you buy. A family business of the actual bee keepers, the honey is very flavoursome. Has more taste than what you would normally get from the supermarket.
