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.

Not host racist events. Absolutely a ghost town. Hardly any tenants, sad animals, and racist events on at conference center.

The animal petting farm no longer exists. This info is about 4,5 years out of date. We came especially for the animals.

Stopped off for some food and we were really pleasantly surprised that the food was excellent and service fantastic. There was an array of animals on site for feeding and petting including peacock, hens, sheep, goats, rabbits, ducks, etc. The owner put on his wellies (I am British so I'll translate - that's gumboots to the locals) and really made our children's day by letting them feed the animals and hold the rabbits and chickens. Our 6 year old son summed it up with the line - the animals in NZ are as nice as English animals but the people who look after animals in NZ are nicer! Really grateful for a lovely memory of our trip to NZ.

The ice cream and candies are always worth the stop. As we have a toddler we also considered visiting the farm. A big hand painted sign said to purchase tickets from the café. Looking over the fence it would have cost $12 for our family to see chickens and ducks;- albeit more gourmet than at our local pond. We chose to buy 3 more bags of lollies. The cost of the farm entry and neglected appearance really ruins this complex. Its a shame, because the ice cream is awesome!!

Stopped off here with our little girl between xmas and new year (busiest week of the year for!). Cafe was completely dead but thought we'd order a pizza. Really bad, dough seemed not cooked and it was very small for $11, we had one piece and left it. Such a shame as a great stop off for people heading north with kids. Place is rundown with lots of empty shops. Needs an overhaul big time and the place where the animals are is right by the cafe and smelt filthy and unkept. Definitely won't be back.

We used to love Lindale farm, we were so excited to be able to finally take our son! Unfortunately the number of animals has dwindled to almost none. The pathways were difficult to use and the animals looked terribly sad. A real disappointment for what used to be a cherished memory to our family.

My Friend and I decided to go and try this lovely restaurant as we hadn't been there for quite some time. We thought we were too late but no the person who was there on his own was very happy to serve us and my friend had chips and coke drink and I just had a coke drink too. He was very friendly even though he was actually looking after other customers too. He spoke to someone else in their own language and apologized to my friend and I about this. We both said don't give it a second thought as he was helping someone else. Very helpful and nothing was too much.

To go to the farm you have to purchase your tickets at the cafe. It took a long time to get our food but it was tasty. the stafff were friendly and you could choose food from the menu board or in the cabinets. It is a peaceful place to sit and rest inside or outside (which overlooks the farm). if you sit outside there are a few chickens that come running over for a bite to eat. No wifi and if you are in a hurry this is not the place to dine but it is worth going for a look around the farm and pet the animals. At the moment there are many farm baby animals to check out.

It is nice but I think it is very expensive for what you get. I do not know it is it still there by the way...
