We were only passing through Wellington and had one night before catching the ferry in the morning. As always we chose the accommodation based on what we thought would be the best value for money, and we were not disappointed. Finding it by car after dark was a bit of a challenge, however once we arrived we received a warm... More

We needed alternative accomodation when coming down to see a new grandaughter, so looked for something nearby. Could not have made a better choice. The hospitality, bedroom, food, decor and ambiance all excellent. We have recommended Finnimore House to many friends and will look forward to staying again. We were pleasantly surprised at the cost. Excellent value for money.

We stayed here 5 years ago and remembered the warm welcome which immediately made us feel at home. Coming back to Wellington, there was only one choice, and we were not disappointed. This is a beautiful family home and Willie is a genuine and welcoming man who clearly loves to have international visitors staying. The location drawback is that Wellington... More

We stayed 4 nights with Willie and Kathleen having booked both the Blue Room and the Library, and will definitely look to stay again on my next trip to Wellington. The rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed, the beds extremely comfortable, and the atmosphere warm and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for Willie, even down to bringing me... More

My 4 night stay at Finnimore House was a wonderful experience from the moment we arrived and were greeted by Willy and Kathleen. We were instantly made at home in the beautifully restored elegant Victorian home. Our blue room was bright and fresh with plenty of space, comfortable beds and the tea making facilities and fridge were great. Willy prepared... More

Rather easy to find location and surprisingly central. Lovely old Victorian House. We stayed two nights in the spacious Blue room (22m2) with its high ceiling and four big windows. The shower room with nice cork floor was shared and down the hall. But there are only two guestrooms, so that was not a problem. Bathrobes available. There was no... More

We stayed only one night with my dad during the rugby world cup in 2011. The house is vast and the rooms are comfortable and spacious situated on the first floor with green views all around. You get the breakfast in the dining room area, large table to share with other guests. That was very friendly. The house is situated... More

Only stayed one night with Willie and Kathleen. The room had a lovely big king bed, a single bed and a huge wall of books. Heavy curtains ensured a great nights sleep. Shared bathroom is large and well appointed. Highly recommended and only a few minutes south of the city ($11cab ride each way)

All the previous reviews have said it all! Willie, the host was really sweet and genuine in welcoming us even though we only stayed for 2 nights. He was always considerate and concerned for our 2 young kids and made sure we were all warm as we were not used to the Wellington windy cold, coming from the tropics. Really... More

From the moment of our arrival, Willie was the perfect host - raconteur, cook, mine of information on all things Wellingtonian. Our stay of 5 nights was always enhanced by delightful conversation as Willie dashed between kitchen and dining room preparing sumptuous breakfasts to any specification. Kathleen popped in each morning en route to teaching at a local school and... More
