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 called into the centre to confirm we were to be picked up by Hasslefree Tours on the Monday morning.
The young lady on duty that morning, was very helpful with my inquiry and also showed us a few other things to see in the area. She recommended the best cafe for coffee and restaurants in the area.
Very helpful and polite to us Aussie travellers.

We visited Methven but the visitor information site was closed on a Sunday so went back on Monday. We found the lady there very willing to help us but decided not to go on the tranzalpine day trip as it was going to cost $875 for two of us which we felt was very expensive and decided to drive to Arthur’s Pass instead. We bought a few souvenirs while at the information site.

During the recent flooding of the Rangitata River and closure of all roads north and south from there, we called in at the Methven i-Site seeking help, both for an update on road conditions, and for accommodation. The lady on duty that Saturday was absolutely marvellous. Wish I had taken note of her name because she changed our upsetting predicament into an unexpected but very pleasant two night stay in the nearby Mt Hutt motels. Thankyou Methven, for having your I-Site open at the weekend and the wonderful staff there.

A visit here sorted our stay. The staff listened to what we were looking for and then offered suggestions. We were able to book everything and get our ski tickets through them.

The interactive museum is well worth a visit. Well laid out, informative and attractive displays and videos, and good areas for young kids. The museum covers all facets of the region and is a very good introduction to the importance of the Methven area for world agriculture, the history and development of the Mt Hutt ski field, and much more. It would be great if they could turn the material in the displays into a book.

These places are great for information for the tourist. Local knowledge is invaluable with picking places to go and things to do. This place was no exception. There is also a very interesting display showing the various industries in the region. It’s certainly worth a visit.
