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.

    Haighs Chocolates are in this building in Rundle Mall since 1915. It is a State Heritage place. The present building was built in 1895, but it was a draper's shop from 1849 to 1886.It was built three storeys above the pavement and was Gothic in character. The neo-Gothic facade and prominent tourelle were refurbished in 1998

    Central location near Victoria Square. An interesting colonial era building and city landmark. Continues to function as a post office.

    Beautiful and gracious - the Church building is heritage listed - built about 1871-2 in the Venetian style. Interior: note the sloping floor, stained glass windows, ceiling, pipe organ and use of timber. There is clearly a great tradition here and pride from the local congregation. The British Baptist Hymnal is still used - wow - no PowerPoint! So a Choral-singing aspect...A grand building. Exterior: note the Manse next door - now a restaurant - income for the local congregation. This is just one of the architectural gems in North Adelaide.

    One of the most glamorous and beautiful of Australian picture palaces was The Regent Theatre, located on Rundle Street. It opened on June 29, 1928, and closed on January 28, 2004, to become part of the shopping centre

    This building built in 1937 replaced a much smaller building building built in 1888
    The façade echoed that of a Renaissance palazzo. Elders has since moved out to Grenfell Street but the building still has the name Elders Building.
