From the minute we arrived at A Great View we were made to feel very much at home. Was more like visiting with old friends - Nev and my husband were sharing a beer and Bettina and I chatting over a cuppa.
As their website states this is very much a homestay B&B - you are staying in their home and sharing the living areas. We had our own bathroom but all bedrooms were on the same floor - we were expecting this so it was not a problem at all but some B&B stayers expect 'separate' quarters so should be aware of this.
The view from our bedroom certainly was fantastic - uninterrupted across Wellington to the harbour. We had a car so getting to and from was easy - about 15 minutes drive into the CBD.
The beds were really comfortable and Nev does a mean scrambled eggs for breakfast!
We really enjoyed our stay with Nev and Bettina and it was a perfect end to our NZ holiday.
Marco, their little black kitten/lap warmer was a firm favourite with our daugher!
