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.

After visiting the Christchurch Farmers Market on a beautiful Sunday morning, we walked over to Mona Vale Park. There were hardly any visitors in the park, albeit a very warm day of 31°C. The rose garden is beautiful. Take a walk along the river and see ducks. Sit on a bench and have lunch.

A quick stop with a tour. Wish we had more time to explore as the gardens were so beautiful. The walk along the river is picturesque and the old homestead looked beautifully preserved, though we did not go in.

Beautiful gardens along the river. We enjoyed the walk through the rose garden, lily pond and river areas. Ducks aplenty for interesting distractions. Homestead is beautiful, we enjoyed coffee and danishes, great coffee. Wasn't high on our agenda to visit but had some time - so glad we did. Highly recommended

Lovely mini Botanical Gardens. Wonderfully maintained and very nice to walk around in.
 
If you love a good garden or flower Instagram photo then come here to enjoy the many colours in the different seasons.
 
There is a café on site to enjoy too.

We stopped off for a morning coffee, enjoyed devonshire tea sitting in the sun watching the ducks and children playing on the lawn. Coffee and teas good, scones excellent

Always love coming for a stroll. The lily pond, the rose garden, it's all beautiful. Today we went to the homestead for the first time to have a coffee. It was really nice.

Very disappointing visit to Mona Vale today. Booked for high tea to celebrate two family birthdays.waited over half an hour for drinks then over an hour for meals. Staff knew we were coming for High tea Most of food on plates would have be prepared well before we arrived and shouldn’t have taken this time to plate up. Five children with us hungry having to wait until after two to have lunch.Their high tea plates came with individual pots of tea ( children aged between five and twelve do not want a pot of tea each) We had to pay extra for soft drink for them. Staff lovely and friendly but service shocking Mona Vale so lovely but will be a long time before we return

After the earthquake it took 5 years to rebuild the building. To be honest, they did the most incredible job to make it look original with the pressed metal ceilings and the carved wooden stair case. I think due to Covid19 it's only open for functions
