“Great Location and very Modern and comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Travelling with another couple we stayed here and it was very good close to everything and very modern, with everything you need for a comfortable and easy stay in Wellington. Emily and Tim have done a nice job with this place and each morning there is fresh bread and a range of breakfast treats. It has easy access to public transport and makes exploring Wellington very easy. Everyone commented on the quality of the sleep here, as it was the best of the trip

We loved the setting and privacy. Bus routes nearby helped with easy access to anywhere in Wellington and surrounds. And the thoughtfulness of the hosts go beyond the normal. Thank you, Emily and Tim. We had a great stay!

Beautifully designed B&B, very private, all your home comforts and delicious home baked goodies. Conveniently located close to the airport and only 10 minutes drive away from the city. Our room included a kitchenette, laundry and distant water views from our own private balcony. Emily greeted us very warmly even though it was a late arrival and it wasn't long before we felt relaxed and right at home. Shame we had to leave the very next day. This is a B&B where you will want to stay longer.

I regularly stay at Acorns when I go to Wellington for business. I love it. I originally chose it because it was close to the airport, but I would go back and stay there anytime. First and foremost, I think the service is amazing. Emily and Tim are wonderful hosts. They think of everything. The rooms are beautiful and cosy, and the breakfasts are amazing. This time I told Emily that I was gluten free and she left me special breakfast cereal and treats. She has also given me a ride to the airport several times if she is going that way, and in general been incredibly hospitable - offering me assistance for anything I've needed. The area is quite nice as well. I always go for a walk on the nearby tracks overlooking the bay if I have time, and the nearby shops offer a good coffee. I have stayed in both the Kowhai and the Pohutakawa suites and find them both beautifully decorated and lovely. HIGHLY recommended!!!

My husband and I stayed at Acorns for 4 nights. We booked late and therefore could only secure the smaller of the two units. Upon arrival we were told that we could in fact have the large unit for two nights and that the owners would happily move us for the remainder of the stay. The larger unit (Kowhai Suite) is very comfortable indeed with a separate, private laundry room. The unit is large, very comfortable and tastfully decorated, high quality bedding and a lovely private terrace. Breakfast each morning with fresh bread, muesli and fresh fruit and yogurt was wonderful and a surprise "treat' appeared each day in the fridge. Location is excellent whether you have the use of a car or not. Emily, our host, was very friendly, helpful and excellent in every respect.
We hope to return for another visit next year.

Room Tip: The smaller of the two units is perfectly adequate providing you do not have too much luggage. Havin...

We stayed for one night at Acorns Seatoun in April 2013. It is an excellent B&B with very modern rooms offering a wonderful sea view. The breakfast with bread, fresh fruit, homemade cookies muesli bread was very delicious. We would stay here again and can really highly recommend this wonderful B&B. Emily is an excellent host.

Quiet residential location with plenty of safe on street parking, 10 minutes drive from centre of Wellington. Impressive courtyard access to accommodation's private entrance. Large, extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated self-contained accommodation (Kowhai Suite), with breakfast kitchenette and stylish private bathroom off. Great view of Wellington bay from elevated external decking/seating area. Substantial, tasty, continental breakfasts delivered to room previous evenings for one to enjoy as and when. Private laundry facilities off main room extremely useful. 5 minutes to coastal drive.Short walk in to small district of Seatoun. Limited restaurants within walking distance locally but all facilities provided to eat in (or on external seating area, watching cruise liners/ferries come & go) should one wish. Great first 'stop' in North Island.
