Jane is a wonderful host. Her charming, well equipped, conveniently located b&b is a must stay for visitors to Wellington. An easy 5 minute walk to cafes and restaurants on the trendy Courtenay Place. Each room has all the conveniences you expect from a hotel, plus nice extra touches like an electric blanket, dvd player, towel warmer and flexible breakfast... More

This b&b was perfectly situated in mount victoria with a 15 minute walk into the town centre (albeit a short but steep hill on the way back). The place itself was very comfortable with either doubles or a double and a single in the same room. The beds were extremely comfortable and Jane our hostess was so welcoming and gave... More

Thank you for a lovely stay! It was perfect. the bed was comfy, the room quiet, the heating and electric blanket a nice touch, and it was lovely meeting you. I could park my car and walk to work and the bus stop right outside came in handy in the pouring rain. I will be staying again.

Jane gave us excellent directions for our afternoon and evening in Wellington. Our room was fine, although there was a cracked window pane above the extra bed (which we weren’t using) which looked dodgy when the wind started to blow hard. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom along the corridor was ok and the breakfast was good. It’s a... More

The little imperfections of this place are part of its charme, but if you prefer superstylish and supertidy and perfectly organised places, rather go somewhere else. It is very clean despite the little chaos around the place. And the breakfast was upon order and you could get what you wanted. The location is perfect, right at the bottom of Mount... More

We stayed three nights in March with Jane at this unique B&B. We enjoyed it very much for its laid back ambiance, the books everywhere, the breakfast, the conversations and the location. Jane is a very helpful hostess.

We were attracted to the Book Lover's on the internet as we ourselves are writers and book lovers and indeed there were lots of books and book talk around the table at breakfast. Jane is a welcoming host and was kind to us even though we got her out of bed at 11 pm...our train being 5 hours late!! We... More

This is a Victorian home that retains historic charm with modern amenities. Location is at top of hill adjacent to Mt. Victoria park--good for walks. Has street noise ( and we heard quite a bit on Saturday night). Breakfast is full cooked, and Joan goes out of her way to help her guests get settled and find their way around... More

Worth a visit which will be long remembered hostess even went out of her way to make me feel at home away from mine .. recommend it to anyone that knows what commercial hotels look like with their unflexibility and the feeling of being just a number ...... thanks

Large rooms in a Victorian villa run by an affable writer/historian. Easy walk to town but also on bus route. Good pub down road for dinner and next to city green belt with hill walk. Jane is very knowledgeable about Wellington and things to do and see. A very nice way to get an insight into living in Wellington and... More
