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 organist was practicing while we were there, poor acoustics surprisingly. Very nice interior and the story is meaningful. Wouldn't make this a destination but part of walking around that end of the district. Too bad the library is closed and you need reservations at the Beehive.

    My first job was working for the then Education Department in the Old Government Building, although the rooms I worked in are not accessible to the public today, as the oldest wooden building in the southern hemisphere is shared with the Victoria University Law School. I chose to visit after the cruise ship season had ended, which meant fewer crowds. There are several rooms which offer different perspectives and times in New Zealand history. On the first floor are the old cabinet rooms, where history was made. It is worth a visit, and it is free.

    Premier House is the official residence of the Prime Minister of New Zealand. It sits on 1.5ha of land. We visited during an Open Day celebrating 150 years of Wellington becoming the capital city of New Zealand and we were able to visit all rooms except those occupied by the Prime Minister. The house has an "interesting" history having been cobbled together from four separate buildings. The house has been used a dental clinic, child-care entre and the setting for a variety of social functions. There is some nice furniture and the garden is very good. Premier House does not have magnificence of many other "older" Wellington buildings.

    This image is a photo of the chapel built by the side of Sexton's Cottage. It is a lovely example of the style used 100yrs ago. It is nestled on the fringe of the Wellington Botanical Gardens and well worth a stroll by. The cottage is very cute and makes a great photo too.

    This picture is the "Beehive" workplace of New Zealand's Government Ministers. Elliott House is a red brick building waiting for a new owner to complete earthquake strengthening.
