This Government building is open to the public for free; you see the ground floor on a tour given by the lady at Reception. We didn’t book. It’s well worth a visit to see the house itself looking so incongruous surrounded by modern city buildings. And inside, the kauri wood, fireplaces and stained glass windows tell the story of the building’s occupants.

A piece of NZ history
сент. 2019 г. • Путешествие в одиночку
This home was build over 100 years ago when the sea was nearby. It was very luxurious for its time with high ceilings and large fireplaces in each room and a servant quarters. It has a large garden with old trees and is in central Wellington so an easy walk up Plimmer steps. As most of the house is offices only a couple of rooms are available to view.

A Grand Old Building
март 2019 г. • Для двоих
This is a rather grand old building that had started life as a family home, became a hotel and is now offices, very appropriately for Heritage New Zealand.

You receive a friendly greeting from the staff and are given a brief outline of what's around you, the tour will only take you about 15 minutes as little of the building is open to the public.

Just standing in the lobby gives you a very nice feeling for how a very wealthy family once lived.

Luckily for visitors this fine building still exists and even if not open it's worth viewing the exterior.

Interesting building, friendly guided tour

The building is not very old by European standards but worth stopping by. The visit takes around 10-15 mn only.

Beautiful historic building
дек. 2018 г.
With history of more than 100 years old this is the former residence house of departed shoe industry business tycoon Robert Hannah. This place now is used as the headquarter office for Heritage New Zealand. You need to report to the reception upon arrival. The receptionist is knowledgeable about this building. She will tell you the history and show you around briefly on the ground floor. The brochures and photos are available in hallway for you to read more details about it. It has been restored perfectly after the big fire in 1940. This is a good place to visit within walking distance from city central.

A beautiful old building magnificently maintained.

Originally built by the owner of Hannah’s Shoes and waking distance from the town centre.

Nice piece of history
апр. 2017 г. • Для двоих
This is the offices of the National Trust of NZ, but we had heard one could have a look att the hallway and front room. This proved true. We reported to the sign for visitors and received a very enjoyable 15 minute tour of the spaces open to the public.

The ceilings in the main front room were impressive - pressed metal - with extensive surrounding cornice. The initial owner, Mr Hannah, made his fortune from selling shoes to gold miners and happily spent some of it on this place. Patterns in each room are all different.

Sadly, the upper floors were damaged by fire in 1940 and lack the interest of the ground floor. They are not normally open to the public.

Mr Hannah interestingly married a woman called Hannah who of course was then Hannah Hannah.

Disappointing
февр. 2017 г. • Для двоих
After a long wait on Waitangi Day to view the house and we were able to see the upstairs area too, we found it a little disappointing. Originally built for the Hannah Family when it would have been a remarkable home, then a hostel for Govt post office employees after which it fell in to a state of disrepair. Luckily it was saved from being demolished but housing the Historic Places Trust offices has not made for interesting viewing. Some of the original features still remain but not enough for us to return - sorry

Good for a quick visit but don't go out of your way to see it
февр. 2016 г. • Для двоих
We stumbled upon this house on the way to the Cable Car. When we arrived there was another group of about 8 people inside and the lady in the office was just beginning to start a private tour. The tour lasted about 15min. and we were not able to see the whole house, just some individual rooms. The house was pretty and an interesting piece of Wellington history but don't expect something on par with the "Newport" Mansions. Ok to see if your nearby but I wanted suggest it if you have to make a special trip.

An Unexpected Visit
июль 2015 г. • Для двоих
After a heavy lunch at Boulcott Street Bistro, we strolled down the narrow Boulcott Street and found Antrim House on our right. It is a beauty in architecture, but unfortunately jammed up & confused by other neighbouring buildings. A cheerful lady guided us through the building with detailed information. It was a 15-minute tour. The most striking feature to me, is the embossed tin-pressed ceiling in 2 of the rooms. Although it is not a popular attraction for tourists, it is worth a visit if you are passing by. (P.S. I am disgusted to see an arrogant local posting an almost abusive review on Antrim House.)
