On arrival we received a friendly welcome from our host Jane. Our daughter and her fiancé had already arrived from Auckland (Ashburton for us) and were comfortably installed relaxing in their room. Our room was lovely. The Bed and Breakfast is close to town but right next door to the Mt Victoria green belt and we could hear the tuis...

We 'booked' Booklovers for the last night of our North Island road trip. The host Jane was very welcoming and helpful, especially as we needed breakfast at 6am to catch our early morning interisland ferry. Would happily stay here again :-)

We stayed for three nights and enjoyed it very much. We had a very good welcome. Booklovers likes to offer unfussy hospitality and it did just that. We enjoyed the sunny terrace and the lounge where we connected with other guests. The location is good being close to the centre of town.

We originally chose Booklovers because we both like books, read them, write them and even design them, so a b&b devoted to the pleasure of books seemed an obvious choice. The location sounded perfect for us too, walkable to the city, edging a green belt, elevated views and free parking. We arrived and were immediately met by a friendly face...

We booked here for 3 nights and, like other reviewers, were surprised that the house didn't live up to it's impressions on the web. Our room at the front was noisy...either buses or kids on skateboards made sure we were awake. Yes, Jane was charming and tried hard despite feeling unwell. However, we wouldn't stay again or recommend to friends....

The bedroom was large and comfortable -including an amazing selection...

This is a beautiful old house, with lovely features. The location is very nice: close to mt victoria where a stroll to the top gives lovely views of the city. Also around the corner are cubastreet and courtney, both very good streets for dinner or drinks. In front of the house is the busstop with frequent busses to the center....

We travelled down from Oakune to Wellington, tired after a week on the road and hoping for a refuge. Book lovers rests at the foot of a forrested ridge overlooking the city centre. This is a double fronted beautiful house at the top of a hill, quiet but central. First impressions are of books everywhere, a gentle soft scent and...

The Booklovers B& B was just lovely. What a beautiful old house. The rooms were clean and tidy, the beds very comfortable and good there was good heating. The breakfast was very nice, and plentiful. The books were indeed for Book Lovers - I could have devoured every book in my room if only I had time. The location is...

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...
