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 shop has recently moved to current location. I don't think there was a coffee shop attached, but who has time for coffee when there is so much to look at in this shop, and everything is so enticing. The staff members were very attentive and no question was a bother.

It's a great shop for fabric lovers. The shop is spacious and displaying beautiful quilts. I really enjoyed looking at them. The shop is located between the information center and the Lake Rotorua. Their display of dolls are wonderful, too.

ロトルアで思いがけなく素敵なファブリックのお店に出会いました。
展示してあるキルトやお人形が素晴らしかったです。生地もや材料も豊富でした。
また、行きたいです。市の中心にある、観光局からロトルア湖へと行く広い道に面してあります。

Fantastic shop with beautiful material, knitting and kit sets. Unfortunately the service was lacking by staff member, absolutely no interest in customers. Hence the lower rating.

Where does a quilter go when she is on holidays? A quilt store of course. The Cottage Affair has a good selection of New Zealand-centric patterns and material. I found both material and patterns not available in Canada. I highly recommend the store for Quilters and people looking to buy a little something for a quilter. The staff was extremely helpful.
