  • Visited with my course from the New Zealand School of Tourism Rotorua an I thought this place was "The bees knees" absolutely loved all the products they offered and you could sample everything! Walked out with the amazing lemon and passion fruit curd OMG so delicious especially on ice cream and toast! Big huge thumbs up and I will be going back to take my kids 😁
  • Good experience for the kids to spot honey bees behind a glass, watch movies and taste different types of honey. Recommended specialy on a rainy day!
  • Fantastic! Free wine tasting, brought some great wines. Kapil I ice I cream always a favorite. But staff very friendly and helpful. No problem recommending a visit.
  • Super friendly staff who are willing to share samplers with you. The Perspex walled beehive is cool to watch.
  • A store that sells honey and its products. There is a cafe within that you can have a coffee break on your road trip. The products can be found at most other places as well though, so nothing special.
