Carlton Gore is the perfect guesthouse if you want proximity to the city without the noise and hustle. Set on a hill just above Oriental Parade, it has lovely views across the bay but is within walking distance of good restaurants, Te Papa Museum and other main attractions in Wellington. The rooms are comfortable but unpretentious and the hosts are... More

This B & B has spacious rooms, very attractive with nice amenities. Host was pleasant and helpful. Easy to walk to the city from this location, but best part - the views! At night, the lights of the city sparkle outside your rooms and it was fabulous! Really an ideal location to see how pretty Wellington is. Breakfast was served... More

This elegant house had a commanding position above the city but parking outside in the road wasn't always easy. The steep walk back up to the B&B from the harbour wasn't a problem for us and there is a bus (No 14) from the city which goes past the door. Our room was comfortable, but had no view and the...

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Although our room was lovely and the bed really comfortable, the en suite was quite small. Janice was really helpful with a map and recommendations of places to eat. The only downside was that it was on a very steep hill and the restaurants about a 20 minute walk, but there were plenty...

My daughters and I were so impressed with the wonderful warm feeling of 'home'. We loved the stylish feeling of our room and plush soft furnishings, so elegant, yet homely. The magnificent views of Wellington harbour, especially while eating breakfast are breath-taking. Thank you Janice for making every effort to ensure our comfort and your helping us plan our daily...

A bright, clean room with a small but adequate ensuite and sunny little patio leading off some patio doors. Plenty of tea and coffee supplied in the room as well as a much appreciated bottle of wine with two wine glasses. A comfortable bed and the quiet location ensured a good night's sleep. The room would have benefitted from a... More

Large, beautiful house overlooking the bay with three guest rooms. Unfortunately we were in the smallest and it was quite small, lacking storage space (we were there four nights). It lacked an ensuite but had a private bathroom, though this necessitated creeping across a 'public' corridor throughout our stay. Also no coffee making facilities in this room.....had to go into...

The property is very well presented, convenient for the city, offers free street parking and some rooms have views over the harbour but it is up a steep hill. Our hostess was pleasant but seemed to lack the warmth of all our other NZ hosts. Our room and facilities were OK with a small ensuite with a partial view of... More

We were very happy with this B&B which Audley Travel had booked for us in one of the smartest suburbs of Wellington. It was very conveniently located with a very regular bus service to the City centre. The house was elegant, & stylishly decorated and furnished. We found our hostess, Janice very pleasant & helpful - she even gave us... More

Never found out the name of our hostess and Carlton Gore was off the pace as far as the other B&B's in our Audley Travel organised holiday. Good B&B however, but needs to address a number of issues. We were in the smallest of 3 rooms and the en suite was little more than a cupboard with no space other... More
