Staying at this B&B is for me like staying with good old friends. I've been at A GREAT VIEW for several times and always enjoyed the time with Neville and Bettina tremendously. The rooms and bathroom facilities were updated 2 years ago, they are nicely decorated and from high standard. Bettina is serving a yummy breakfast with lots of varieties... More

We really enjoyed our 2-night stay at A Great View, especially meeting the charming hosts, Bettina and Neville. They made us feel at home right away, and we enjoyed several lively conversations and glasses of wine with them. Their home is tastefully furnished and comfortable, and we were treated to a magnificent panoramic view from our upstairs bedroom windows. We... More

The home is beautiful. The rooms are lovely. The hosts are more than welcoming and charming. The views are really great, as advertised. But, it is not a particularly convenient location. Though only 15-20 minutes from Wellington, it is not easy to get to. Otherwise perfect.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your comments about the view, the house and the owners. The location of our B&B is clearly indicated on the websites It takes 10-15 minutes from our B&B to the CBD through two small suburbs or on the motorway. Kind regards Bettina and Neville More

Spent I night here and it was a delightful surprise with fantastic hospitality. Situated about 10 minutes drive from Wellington city, the location was very convenient for those visiting Wellington city. Neville and Bettina are such wonderful host and make you feel very welcomed. I would highly recommend Neville's special omelette breakfast - a definitive treat. Would recommend this place... More

We had a magnificent time staying at A Great View! The owners are very friendly and accommodating - treated us to some wine and a visit and gave us great advice on where to go in Wellington.

To stay at "A great view" is like coming home. Bettina and Nev are great hosts, they make you feel like being part of the family immediately. Their B&B is only a 15-minutes-drive from Wellington downtown, so you can easily reach all the sights around. The rooms are wonderful and the view over the mountains to the sea is just... More

Bettina and Nev were wonderful hosts. However, this is truly their home. We were unaware we were going to have to share a bath-we booked through Agoda and it did not reveal that there was a shared bath. This is Bettina and Nev's home, so the shared lounge is really their living room. And, Bettina had recently acquired a darling... More
