“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

This is the beautiful home of Warren and Bev and just exquisite. The views and location were perfect and we could not have asked for better hosts. Our room was beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable.
Bev prepared the most sumptuous breakfast for us which we ate with stunning views overlooking the Harbour and under the watchful eye of the resident seagull; plip-plop!
Their home is amazing, but you need to visit yourselves to fully appreciate it!
Thank you both for a wonderful stay.

Stunning views & very friendly welcome from Bev & Warren to their home. They very kindly drove us into Wellington on our first day, and also took us to the ferry terminal when we left - much appreciated! Comfortable bed, excellent shower and large bedroom. There is also a useful microwave and fridge in the room, although did need them with super breakfast and excellent Wellington restaurants. Would definitely return to this B&B if in Wellington again.
Dragonfly restaurant excellent, as we're Te Papa museum & Botanic Gardens (both free). Old St Paul's church well worth a visit.

We have just spent two nights here and there is nothing less than excellent to describe the Oriental Bay.
Bev and Warren are very friendly, chatty, and happy to share their knowledge of the city with you.
Rooms are beautifully appointed and there are little extras like biscuits, newspaper and fruit.. Very clean and comfortable with stunning views of the harbour from the dining room..
Great Location, although quite a steep climb to the house its an easy walk to all attractions, or bus stop.

A 5-star stay in Wellington does not get better than this! Not only is the location oustanding, John and Bev deserve an award for architectural excellence. Each room is beautifully appointed, and breakfast is served overlooking the bay with stunning views. Bev ensures that you do not leave hungry and even prepares eggs according to your preference. John provided us with local orientation just after we arrived and ensured that we found a great place to have dinner. We wish we could have spent one more night here!

Room Tip: The rooms are all on the same level and each is individually appointed with high-level decorations...

We stayed for 2 nights with another couple all in our 60s. Wellington is built on hills and this B&B is in the most expensive part of Wellington. The view from the eating area was superb. Bev and Warren were very good hosts. You feel like you are with friends. The rooms were beautifully decorated as Bev has an eye for decorating. They have a zebra skin in their living room. Bev cooked a wonderful breakfast and Warren kept us amused with all his tales. The only drawback is getting up with a car and we had a van. There was adequate parking for us even with the van. We'd stay here again.

Bev and Warren are amazing hosts. They know the city inside and out including most of the people who live there. This couple is gracious, funny and have a very relaxed attitude while running a beautiful home catering to your needs. The views from the dining room are phenomenal. What a perfect place to have breakfast served to you by Bev. Great location, comfortable room, good food...what more do you want?
