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

We were so blown away with this b&b that we stayed an extra day. Jasmine&Alan were very kind and knowledgeable and the house is awesome (as the kiwis say!). Eastbourne is a pleasant town with lovely walks and the ferry to Wellington is quick and easy(we saw dolphins on the day we went-that was also awesome!) we would recommend this... 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. Jasmin went above and beyond her 'call of duty' in assisting me and my bridesmaids as we were getting ready for my wedding! Top... More

It was such a privilege to be part of your wedding celebrations - thank you for including us. You were an absolutely beautiful bride and the whole event was fantastic. So glad The Walnut Tree was able to have a special place in those memories for you. Thank you both. More

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. We weren`t sure what to expect but staying at Walnut Tree cottage turned out to be wonderful.... More

Wonderful hosts, stunning views of the harbor, comfortable rooms, extravagantly good breakfasts. And did we mention wonderful hosts? (My review says excellent fitness center, but actually there was no fitness center--but there is a wonderful 2 hour gorgeous hike, which by my lights counts as a fitness center.) Although we traveled to see my gorgeous niece get married to a... More

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. I was afraid that the less than perfect weather had ruined your stay somewhat! Thanks for your kind comments and I hope you had a good trip home. Of course the weather after you left was perfect -I guess that's the luck of the Irish or something like that! More
