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.

The information centre has some very informative displays for the Kea, Kiwi and predators in the area. They also had a nice clean bathroom area. We lucked out and saw some Keas at the Kea Kiosk which was fun to see and provided some good information about the birds. They had a lot of stamps and my wife has been collecting them lately so she was very pleased. The prices in the gift shop were also quite fair.

The Arthur Pass Information Centre is about halfway through the Arthur Pass and if you ever get the chance this is one of the best drives in the world. Very scenic and there are quite a few places to get out, sight see and hike. The information centre is located in the Arthur's Path Village and has a few conveniences in the area.

Arthur's Pass is a great area, for day trips or to stay, with great , tramping, bird life & watching, hunting, mountain biking, camping, fishing, short walks , ski fields not far away .A lovely little township with great information centre , Pub & restaurants & accommodation. You have to be carful of the inquisitive Keas .The Transalpine train stops there . A great stop when travelling over to the West Coast . About 2hrs drive from Christchurch over the Southern Alps . A Must Stop over . Highly Recommend

It was quite a hike for us, we are seniors, but we took it slow and oh my it was so worth the effort. We were there during Covid times so not crowded at all. Beautiful.

We stopped at the Arthur's Pass Visitor Center after a foggy, rainy drive from Greymouth, en route to Christchurch. It was a nice break from the weather. The staff said it was generally rainy in that area...although all of the postcards show bright sunny days. Regardless, the Visitor Centre had a nice selection of maps, postcards, pins, and clothing and the staff was helpful and informative about the remainder of our journey.

Absolutely stunning scenery and drive through this amazing landscape, although very rainy and grey at our particular time it was still a site to behold, we will definetly try to do the pass again. Bridges, epic mountain ranges, windy roads, lookout points for plenty of snaps, this really is a must but drive with care.

We drove from Franz Josef Glacier to Arthur’s Pass. We stayed one night at a hotel in Arthur’s Pass. Then we drove to Christchurch next day. The West Coast Road is amazing on a clear day. The mountains along the road were beautiful.
