“Ideal B&B for visiting Wellington”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

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.

We spent 5 nights at Acorns. The accommodation is of a very high standard. The room consists of a comfortable sitting / eating area and of course bed with quality bedding.. There is a private and separate laundry area which was really useful and a large shower room. You also have a large and very private terrace with sea views. The room is very tastefully decorated and furnished.

Acorns is a very easy bus ride into the city centre or a short drive. Seatoun is a pleasant area with a village feel and has access to the beach. It is a perfect place to stay enabling you to enjoy the city but come back to a more peaceful environment.

What make Acorns stand out is the generosity of Emily. You get more than you expect. Freshly baked bread and high quality preserves, yoghurt and fruit as well as home baked treats.

This is classy accommodation which I highly recommend.

We spent one night at Acorns Seatoun in March 2013 and were very impressed with the entire experience. We had to phone Emily from airport to ask if we could check in early and were told that it would be no problem at all. The accommodation is tastefully furnished with great attention to detail and is very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious (home made granola and bread, juices and coffee).and there was yummy home baking to sample in the fridge. Emily was charming and welcoming. We would recommend this place to anyone staying in Wellington who wants a relaxing and peaceful place to stay. Would definitely go back!

My wife and I stayed in this beautiful B&B in January. Hidden away in the quaint seaside village of Seatoun, Acorns has convenient access to the airport and city. The accommodation itself is exceptional. We stayed in the garden suite, which was immaculate and decorated beautifully with a modern feel. Emily is a warm and accommodating host. She was very helpful throughout our stay and went the extra mile baking us fresh lemon cookies for our arrival - so good we had to the get the recipe! Having stayed in many B&B's throughout the North Island, this is one of the finest.

I stayed for two nights at Acorns Seatoun in November 2012. Emily and Tim are wonderful hosts and made me feel very welcome. My stay in this wonderful and very modern accommodation was an excellent experience. The breakfast with homemade bread and muesli was very delicious. Mentionable are also the homemade and very delicious cookies. I would stay here again and can really highly recommend this wonderful B&B.
Many thanks to Emily and Tim.

We stayed at this little gem for two nights in early February. If you have a car it's a great location, just a short drive out of Wellington CBD. The room was very comfortable and we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the bathroom.
Breakfast was delicious - some of the best bread and homemade museli and granola we've had. All this was topped off with delicious home baked goods which we found in the tin in our room each day.
We would definitely stay at Acorns again.

My partner and I only stayed for one night and we were seriously impressed. Beautiful room, stylishly decorated, comfy bed and wonderful continental breakfast provided. We were also lucky enough to be treated to some delicious chocolate treats left in the fridge for us. Seatoun is a beautiful seaside village on 5 minutes walk from Acorns to the beach 5 minutes drive to the airport and only 15 minutes from the city centre. We would absolutely stay again thanks so much :)
