If possible, I would give 0 stars! Worst experience we had during our NZ vacation at the beginning of the year.
We were on the Forgotten World Highway and stopped at Laurens Lavender as it was advertised in the brochure. We parked our car and approached the building. We did not even reach the building when a woman came out and told us in a very rude way that we were only allowed to come closer if we buy something in the café or the shop. Indeed we planned to have breakfast here, but then we left immediately as we definitely do not support such a dodgy business practice. I strongly recommend everyone NOT to stop here!
Great place to stop over and relax. The ambience is excellent, staff are friendly and accommodating and the cafe serves delightful muffins. We gave it a 4-star as it could improve more such as, letting visitors walk through some parts of the fields for photo taking and lavender picking. In a nutshell, we love the place and would definitely come back in the future.
What a great place. Set in a beautiful lavender field the cafe is a delight. The muffins are outstanding and the staff are delightful and incredibly helpful and accommodating. Go out of your way to come here.
Lauren's Lavender Farm is an absolute delight, treat and an out of this world place. The depth of the colour if her lavender is spectacular, the fragrance will catch you as you drive in.... you could spend hours and hours here just watching, breathing, connecting and relaxing. A must see.
We had a small family get together and had pre-ordered lunch. Lunch was really nice and we enjoyed the hot and cold beverages that are available. The environment is so relaxing. Lorraine and Kasey are great hostesses. Highly reccommend a stop for a coffee, at least!
So relaxing & serene
The lavenders have started flowering, and are beautiful
The mother & daughter team that served us with coffee & cake were so lovely, and welcoming
Their lavender products, were superior
Will return soon
