My husband and I stayed in one of the cabins on Tonks Street. We came in at night and had a little trouble finidng the street. This cabin is off Cuba Street (the "coolest street" in New Zealand).

Jeff and Dean have a number of properties in Wellington. We stayed on the ground floor of their house.It was very comfortable with an en-suite shower room and a separate loo in the hall. They were excellent hosts, welcoming us with a glass of wine and finding all the necessary stuff to remove some paint I had managed to pick... More

The City Bed and Breakfast is a great place for a stay in Wellington. Jeff and Dean are excellent hosts, you have the feeling that you are staying in the house of some old friends. The location is perfect, would are five minutes from all the cafés and restaurants down the hill and 15 minutes from the museum and downtown.... More

Excellent location to town in a lovely quiet area. Would recommend the B and B to anyone considering staying in Wellington. Keep up the... More

Perfect stay at Wellington City Bed and Breakfast, very nice, modern, very clean and great hosts. Even a little deck and only 10 minutes walk to the city centre. Would stay there and recommend any time!

Great place. Great guys. Very quiet, yet walking distance from Wellington centre. Thoroughly recommend this - couldn't be better. From the glass (or was it bottles) of wine through to a quiet evening working at the laptop in the sitting room - all to myself - just what I needed. Cat has attitude.

We chose this place to stay for three reasons. One was because it has some great reviews aready on Tripadvisor, two because they can provide you with parking (a bit of a nightmare otherwise in Wellington) and three because they have a beautiful ginger tom cat. We drove to this place and found it no problem. Jeff and Dean had... More
