This b & b is on the hill above Wellington's very smart Oriental Bay suburb, just a short drive from the interisland ferry terminal. It is in one of the world's great locations with magnificent views over Wellington harbour through the plate glass windows and from the terrace of the breakfast room. Bev and Warren are excellent hosts who welcomed... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in February at the end of our New Zealand holiday just so we could see Wellington which is a fantastic, vibrant city. We had toured the South Island staying in out of the way places all excellent and I was hoping that Oriental Bay our last stay would not disappoint. But... More

From Oriental Parade, a drive up the steep hill of Hay Street plus a hairpin to access 18A is rewarded by a panoramic view over Wellington Bay and harbour. The view is further intensified from the dining kitchen area and balcony. With a view like this a television is superfluous. Our friendly hosts, Bev and Warren are patrons of the... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
