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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We passed by here as it is recommended by our friends. Eclair was great, but the beef and cheese mince pie was amazing!! They offer varieties of sweets, pies, sausages, and juices. It’s unfortunate that they don’t have coffee. But they will give you a...recommendation where you can have one.More

Stopped by to try their famous chocolate eclairs as we were passing through Ohakune. They were quite large and good value at $4.00. I found the chocolate quite sweet but it is a decadent treat and very creamy too! Lovely service from the ladies behind...the counter. Would recommend.More

Had to do it - on our Mountains to Sea cycle our group of 7 dropped into The Chocolate Eclair Shop for a fix. They were divine, and at $4.00 great value for money. Can absolutely recommend.

The eclairs were pretty good, a bit too sweet for my liking but the kids enjoyed them. Grab one when you need a sugar rush.

These chocolate éclairs taste good and are enormous. They are baked on site. However, sadly the owners are selling the business so get in quick if you want to try one.
