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

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... More

Literally. When I booked the B&b a couple of weeks back I had no idea, how nice the stay would turn out to be. We booked to arrive the day before Christmas eve and left boxing day. The only not so nice thing was the weather, but neither Bettina nor Nevile could have done something against that. Before we even... More

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.
