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.

    Have been here before when we have been in Napier. The gallery, cafe,gardens and huge sculptures is such a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the amazing surroundings around you. We just love everything about this place. We visit here everytime we are in the Hawkes Bay. You wont be disappointed. Something for everyone.

    I was not exactly sure what I was booking but S&S came highly recommended from our B&B hosts so we gave it a shot.

    This is unlike any wine tasting I have ever done in the world, and I am a veteran of over 200+ wine tasting. Set in a large room with a massive big screen TV, this is part video, part lecture/class and part wine tasting. Some of the wines are exceptional (we bought 2 to take home to USA). Jason our host is extremely knowledgeable and I learned more about wine making and more about NZ wine in 2 hours then all the other wine tasting we did in NZ combined.

    Not to be missed.

    Very nice wines and no reservation needed which was a plus for an impromptu trip. Well priced wines and tasting. Staff had a basic knowledge of the wines, but nothing much beyond what was provided on the information sheet. Would have been nice to know why the Awatea name/ship was chosen for one of the wines, and a bit of history about the company.

    Such a fantastic place to have in Havelock. It’s a beautiful drive up here. The trains are amazing and for all ages. Great place to bring visitors. In the summer they often have a ice cream van. Good price. Great staff.

    A number of great well signposted walks around this area. We followed the route to the giant redwoods which was a lovely 50 minute round walk from the main car park. Recommended

    This walk was straight off a main road in Havelock North. Parking was on the main road. The sign said it was 1.6 Km return so it's not long but still very enjoyable.It's a laid path alongside a stream and under a canopy of trees. Lovely but too short.
