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.

We had to make a return visit to Athol Gallery as it was closed when we passed and am I glad we took the time to do so, I absolutely loved the Art, so much so, we just had to relieve the gallery of a couple of pieces which now grace our wall. Exceptional NZ artwork.

I am so glad we made the short trip from Queenstown to the newly opened Athol Gallery, it was well worth the visit... especially if you are already traveling to Milford Sound (you pass it directly).

The gallery showcases the work of many local artists and it is so nice to see how they each depict the stunning New Zealand landscape. And also very nice to have the opportunity to take a beautiful piece of New Zealand home it’s you. We especially liked the landscapes by Emma Kate Moore and Kevin Stevenson.

What a terrific purpose built art gallery. Situation at the side of the main road in Athol, it’s in a perfect location for travellers heading to Te Anau, Milford and Invercargill. A great range of quality paintings by quality artists, mainly reflecting Southern New Zealand rural scenes and life. Make sure you meet Kevin the “Artist in Residence,” a colourful local identity with a wide knowledge of the local art scene.
