We had such a wonderful stay at The Walnut Tree. We really enjoyed having our own private lounge to relax in and the entertainment system was great. They had such a good selection of DVDs. The fire added to the ambiance of the place and it was nice and warm inside on what was a cold weekend. The breakfast was... More

Wonderful stay here, everything was lovely, rooms, views, the enormous TV and range of videos, fabulous breakfast, and it was lovely and warm on a cold day. We were here with our older children and it was perfect with so much space for everyone to relax. Anywhere with such a comprehensive selection of Asterix books has to be good!! A... More

We liked it so much we've been three times and making it a forth in few weeks! Great value B+B and wonderful hosts - the friendliest and most welcoming you'll meet. Take off your shoes and relax away; have a dip in the hot tub surrounded by nature, or take a walk to the beach and seaside restaurants/cafes, then come... More

The Walnut Tree truly was the perfect getaway from the busyness of life. The accommodation was extremely luxurious, spacious and comfortable, with sea views from even the bedroom ! The hosts Alan and Jasmine made us feel at home straight away and were a real delight to talk with intermittently throughout our stay. The beautiful, private lounge where we spent... More

We had a warm welcome from very helpful owner of this interesting house who immediately gave us a lift into Wellington city centre as soon as we had settled in. When we returned later in the evening, wet and bedraggled, from a rainy Wellington, she wisely suggested a Jacuzzi would be just the thing to settle us down for a... More

I wasn't sure what to expect from The Walnut Tree when we booked because there are relatively few reviews. In my opinion, it's the ideal B&B. The value is hands down the best you'll find in New Zealand; no other B&B came close to matching what you get here for the price. It's a 20-minute drive from Wellington, so as... More

Jasmin and Alan made us feel very welcome. Beautifully decorated, warm and inviting on all levels - figuratively and physically. We spent our wedding night here and I also got ready here earlier in the day.

Never been to Wellington before so not sure of its geography. Our visit turned out to be Wellington Sevens week so we couldn`t get any rooms downtown but eventually found this B & B a short ferry ride across the bay in Eastbourne.
