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.

Bad weather day! Probably one of the few things to keep a 6yr old engaged whilst also being educational and during a peak holiday period it was closed. To be fair I think it’s closed permanently - it’s website however should have clearly reflected this fact. You can still climb to the look out, which was Ok and a very simple climb, even with a 6yr old. A sign on the door said it was going to be operated by another company in 2018 - sometime, no ETA provided.

Dropped in here after Drivers Creek on 2nd January ( a bank holiday in New Zealand right?)........ The place was closed. We are assuming that if it's not open on one of the busiest days of the year it must no longer be operating.

this looked like a great idea at the time.

Driving past the sign it sounded like a little bit of local history, and keen to see the local history of the old gold mining town, we drove up the side road to the location.

Thought it looked a little quiet, but then as we arrived I noticed that there is a sign on a side door (not obvious) stating that it will be closed till late July.

No bother, plenty to see if you walk around, there's a nice little walk across a bridge over a small rive, and several artifacts out in place for you to look at.

Looks cool, and would love to revisit when it's open, but for now, cannot give it any more than 3 stars.

We were very keen to visit and walked up from Coromandel town on a hot day. in hindsight it would have been prudent to drive up. However, when we got to the battery it was closed, we were just about to turn and go when Paul the gentleman who had recently bought the battery kindly offered to show us around. He was brilliant and we had a very enjoyable hour having a very knowledgeable and private guided tour. Paul has been working very hard to get the battery back up and running and in good shape for tours to begin. When it is open again this is a must visit. After the tour Paul kindly took us back to town, for which we were very grateful.

A notice at the end of the road would have been very much appreciated. We travelled up the road by far more than the 200 metres indicated because it was not obvious as the signs at the actual site appeared to have been removed as it was closed for refurbishment and the building itself covered in scaffolding. A simple closed sign with an explanation at the end of the road, 200 meters, from the site would have been customer friendly.

If you're ever in Coromandel, this is a must see. While it is an old 'educational' stamper. it still give you a very good idea as to how the valley's must have sounded, all those years ago, when they were removing the gold, from the mined rocks.

We had heard about it but never visited and now we know what we have missed out of. We were taken on an educational, interesting and wonderful verbal voyage about gold, earthquakes, tsmaumais, nature and the history of the Coromandel Peninsula. Ashley very obviously loves sharing his knowledge and he does it in such an interesting way. I believe a visit to the Gold Stamper Battery should be enjoyed by all who visit the Coromandel Peninsula and it is even a perfect reason for coming

This was an interesting trip great to see the old water wheel working. We had the tour but felt it was too drawn out and too much commentary on the tour guides own interests . We were passing through the town with not a lot of time to spare we didn't expect to be in there for over 2 hours. The guy who does the tours needs to shorten his stories a bit ,maybe just cut it down to how the process works.

The, still working, old water wheel is a bit of a novelty. Didn't stay for the guided tour. Might be interesting for those with a bit of an interest in the history of chasing gold.
