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.

What travellers are saying
- Opening hours are more than displayed online. Enjoyable for the whole family even without being train enthusiasts. The owner is knowledgeable and put on a fantastic display.Written 20 July 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Nice folk. They helped with a lot of suggestions for what our grandchildren could do. They have lots of handouts also available. Gave us a friendly welcome. Do visit and take their adviceWritten 16 January 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The Cwmglyn Farm housed for many years one of the outstanding creameries in New Zealand. The heart of soul of this operation was Biddy Fraser-Davies, an artisan cheesemaker, who dedicated her life to the production of English style Cheddar. Unfortunately, she died in July 2018, and with her died the creamery too. Her husband runs (and is passionate about) the Middleton Model Railway. Multiple engines run at this elaborate and complex scenery and it is mesmerizing to watch the perpetual motion of all these cars in various directions.Written 16 April 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- A bit of a drive from Palmerston North (approx 45 min) we called in to see the eel feeding and the white Kiwi. Both were great with rangers giving some great informative and engaging talks. Lovely bush walks (although we didn't want to take the kids on the long one) cafe had nice food (coffee was so/so)
All in all a nice place. Made better all the better by the friendly and knowledgeable staff.Written 18 January 2018
- A feast of interesting paintings and sculptures in every room. Working artist with studio next door. Location at the end of a quiet street.Written 8 August 2022
- As you drive South from Napier towards Wellington, you traverse a number of smaller communities. Many of them have reminders of New Zealand's important participation in world wars, as a member of the British Commonwealth. In fact, New Zealand, a small country with a very small population, suffered losses disproportionate to its size during both wars, but especially WWI. A short visit to this memorial will refresh your memory of the catastrophe WWI was.Written 5 May 2019
- I am a photographer and day tripper, the Cliff Walk was open in 1911 by the then mayoress Maud Page.It is a scenic walk, with views overlooking the Makakahi River. It is an easy walk, suitable for all ages.
I think one of the main things that make the walk stand out is the arch made by tree trunks growing above the pathway. Its not something you see everyday and well worth going to see because who knows, it may not be there foreverWritten 6 February 2017
