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.

    Great value for money. At only $5 p/p for the nostalgic Victorian mineral bath house what a bargain!!!
    Friendly staff. Amazing spa pool. Highly recommend!

    Very knowledgable people who are also very helpful. Can do almost anything, while also having tourist type items for sale.

    We noticed the sculptures well before we knew anything about them, and thought they were a fantastic way to celebrate the cycling possibilities from Te Aroha. Then when we had lunch at Ironique and saw all the lovely furnishings there we realised there was a theme emerging, and finally learnt about Adrian Worsley and his work. Beautiful stuff.

    Mt Te Aroha Suumit walk is currently closed after the cyclone and I wouldn't attempt going up there given the sodden soil at the moment. Tui Domain trail was open.

    Excellent and knowledgable staff. Very interesting items on display. All contained in an old iconic building.

    If we were fitter we would have like to venture further on tracks. Have been here several times in different seasons as we are local, a good short drive from home during COVID lockdown with a thermos & better after restrictions changed with a snack to go with our cold drinks from a Te Aroha bakery or cafe. Well recommended generous sized, stoney car-park although not very well maintained, some large pot-holes and puddles. Road access is sealed part of the way from Te Aroha - Gordon Road then a good gravel surface for the remainder of Waiorongomai Loop Road, We usually use the part opp Mace Rd going in & out the other direction as there is a tricky - for our low car drivers - give way junction

    We have been before and will definitely go again. It is a very enjoyable experience and the staff couldn't be nicer. It is also a very reasonable cost.

    Currently summit walk is closed but still can do tui domain trail. Bit of mud around after the cyclone has been through. Still good to do if in the area. I saw some cracks in the trail so didn't hang around too long up there in case of a land slip. Cyclone went through last week.

    Make it a stop-over, on your cycling trip along the Hauraki Rail Trail. You will love the history and the friendly local Kiwis. There is Cafe 77, Manawaru, in the same complex. Highly recommended.

    Te Aroha domain is located on one end of town located beside the mineral springs. The museum is also located in the domain area, as are the information center and the art gallery.
    The domain is fairly large but it does mostly consist of lawn bowls fields. There is a path that goes along the whole area with patches of lower beds scattered around. There is a water feature and playground on the mineral spring end of the domain.
    There are a few walking tracks around the area including one that heats to the summit of Mt Te Aroha. There are also BBQ facilities available. It was a nice place to walk around. There is also a Mokena Geyser located behind the mineral springs but it was just steaming when we went.

    Sue at Mountain View Massage is a skilled masseuse. I got amazing relief for a neck and shoulder issue. Highly recommend her.

    My husband and I throughly enjoyed meandering down the quiet waters of the Waihou. Matt was the perfect host. It was lovely meeting othets in our tour. Would recommend this activity. Not strenuous and very easy.
