“fantastic ice cream and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

This review is long overdue. My wife and I had just finished kayaking Cathedral Cove. We were headed to Hot Water beach. We stopped by Maddens for ice cream. One thing we were worried about was not having towels for Hot Water beach so we asked Kim the owner where he nearest Countdown would be. She told us to wait a sec, got in her car, drove off and came back five minutes later with two towels for us to borrow - I was speechless. She wouldn't even accept a tip or anything. The ice cream was great and the hospitality was unbelievable. Thanks Kim!

I am very sorry that you missed out on getting an ice cream before you went home, I was working that day and I live in the next town over and was unable to get there on time. I hope that when you are next in Hahei you will come back and let us show you that we are worth the trip!

“Every day is great ..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

Awesome, great value Ice Creams, yummy thick shakes and fantastic, tasty Pizzas. It may seem like you're paying a bit more than a franchise pizza joint, but it's well worth it, just for the nice presentation and great taste!

“Amazing ice-creams!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

We went there every day we stayed in Hahei. The ice-creams are enormous and there is a huge range of flavours available. If you are feeling adventurous you may fancy the 8 scoop challenge!

We believe that its no fun having a "mean" little ice cream, so we make sure that everyone has a great big one to enjoy!
