“A Great B&B.”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

Neville and Bettina are excellent hosts and offer a warm, friendly welcome to their delightful home which does indeed have a great view. Modern room with excellent en suite, excellent sleep in very quiet surroundings. Situated out of the city but very easy to get into - we drove 5 minutes to a local train station, parked up for free and were in the centre of Wellington 20 minutes later. There is an excellent walk which offers exceptional views of the city in close proximity to the residence, if you're a keen photographer don't miss it, it provides a stunning location for sunset.

Despite the wind and fog which pretty much eliminated the great view, the hosts were both delightful and very gracious. They went the extra yard for us by helping us arrange a visit with a local hospital so we could get an allergy injection. Their assistance mad our visit in Wellington very enjoyable despite the weather.

Bettina and Neville are now fixed in the firmament of our friends. From the first moment of our arrival we were entranced by their warmth and conviviality. Neville's fish dinner was matched by our duck ragu and it was such a pleasure to feel that we could cook our food in their wonderful kitchen. We will be staying there for the third time in the near future and are looking forward to the experience. If you like the culture of Europe then this is the place for you.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in August with Neville and Bettina very very much. Picked up from the airport, superb home dining, very interesting conversation with our world traveled hosts. Nothing was a problem for them, much information about things to see and do around Wellington. Absolutely fabulous location with sea views extraordinaire. Would recommend to others for certain, and would envisage staying there again. Was just like being with family. Thank you for your hospitality.

My family and I stayed with Neville and Bettina in July 2012 and enjoyed our stay in their home.

Right at the outset they made us feel very welcome and made it very clear their home is our home. Everything was lovely and clean.

Our stay in Wellington was for 2 nights and it was a wonderful way to end our 3 week holiday in their home.

I have no hesitation in staying here again if we return to NZ for a 5th time.

In June we spent 3 days at "A Great View" and had just an amazing time. Bettia and Neville are wonderful hosts. Nothing is too much for them, they are helpful in every way. We love the cosy ambience of the house, every room is beutiful decorated with a mix of modern and antique furniture. The excellent breakfast buffet provided lots of variety to choose from. The views are spectular, we have sunshine and fresh Wellington air all day long. When we arrived Neville and Bettina shared with us a welcome drink and interesting conversation. One evening Neville cooked us a supreme sea food dinner and we spent a nice evening together.
We are truly sorry to leave this beautiful B&B to travel to our next destination. When we come back to Wellington we will definitely stay again at "A Great View".
