We recently stayed at a Great View outside Wellington and whilst the location was elevated with a good vista the location was a little too far from the city centre. The rooms including the bathroom were comfortable but contained clothing and belongings of the owners. There was also a strong odour of cigarette smoke throughout the house and the owners...

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that our Homestay/B&B did not meet all your expectations. Most NZ B&B's are located in people's homes. We try to make this clear on our website, calling us Homestay/B&B. Our location is clearly indicated on our website. There were empty draws in the bedrooms and hanging wardrobes with clothes hangers over the...

Hosts Bettina and Neville Jefferys were helpful and charming every way. They picked me up (twice) when it turned out that there was no bus service to their home because Wellington shuts down for two days on New Year's Day. When I arrived that first evening, they had my luggage stowed upstairs and introduced themselves, answered my questions about Wellington...

I took lots of photos from my bedroom window as it was different at different times of day and you can't get a better picture of Wellington! Bettina and Neville are fantastic hosts! Nothing is too much for them. I really enjoyed myself. It's great when travelling alone to meet people like Bettina and Neville. Lots of laughs.

In March 2010 we stayed for several days with A GREAT VIEW and enjoyed it very much. The views are magic and Bettina and Neville are wonderful hosts.
