“Calm in Wellington”
Reviewed 4 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Wellington has a reputation for windy weather but we were lucky enough to have a week with just the gentlest breezes. But the cosy garden setting of Appletree Apartment would provide a calm respite from the wildest weather.
The cottage is hidden away on the lower level of a suburban house with an attractive outlook into the well tended garden. The bedroom is very comfortable with a range of bed covering options from the warmest doona to lightweight blankets. The gentle warmth from the underfloor heating ensured that we didn't bother with the doona after our first night! The sounds of blackbirds, tuis and other garden birds provided a great way to start each new day.
The apartment has a neat kitchen fully equipped with an electric oven and cooktop, a good array of pots, pans and cookery utensils. The stove unit actually included a small dishwasher niftily tucked away beneath it.
There is a dining table in the main living room which can be folded to create additional space if required. The living room is in fact quite spacious even with the table fully extended. It is an attractively presented room which is comfortable and cosy. The adjoining sun room has large floor to ceiling windows on two walls that face out into the garden. On warm days these windows can be fully opened allowing the scents of the spring flowers to enter the room.
The apartment is in an excellent location. It is on the corner of two very quiet residential streets and yet only a 5 minute scenic minute walk to the nearest bus stop. Wellington's bus system was a revelation. The frequency of the very well patronised bus service into the city centre meant that we didn't even bother looking up a timetable and even used the bus for our Saturday night out in the city.
The shopping strip in Newtown's Riddiford Street has a quirky mix of shops, fresh food, cafes and restaurants within colourful timber buildings dating from the early 1900's. It is a 15 minute walk or much shorter bus trip from the apartment.
Our hosts were welcoming and friendly. They generously encouraged us to use some of the seasonal produce from their garden when we decided to take a break from Wellington's excellent restaurants and cook a meal ourselves.
All in all Apple Tree Apartment provided a perfect base our week of exploring the charms of Wellington and its scenic hinterland.

“Very relaxing place with a lovely garden.”

Very welcoming and helpful hosts. Everything supplied that could possibly be needed Little extras even included some home made biscuits. Very steep hilly access on foot, much better with a car.

“Welcome to Wellington”
Reviewed 3 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Ian and Marge were very gracious hosts and the accommodation was perfect for our stay in Wellington. A quiet garden setting and still close to the city centre and airport. A very well set up kitchenette made cooking simple and enjoyable and the sun room was perfect for a afternoon drink or catching up on holiday correspondence.

Really enjoyed our chats with the hosts and they even drove us to the airport which was greatly appreciated. This is an ideal location for couples wishing to stay in Wellington in a comfortable and relaxed setting.

We had 3 wonderful days at Apple Tree Cottage. What a surprise when one went through the gate. Orchard, beautiful gardens and a conservatory to sit in and enjoy the garden. Accommodation was spacious, very clean and all the comforts of home. Owners very friendly and helpful.
Close to public transport, off road parking and very peaceful .Would certainly stay again.
