Bettina and Neville made us feel very welcome in their conveniently located home. A short 10 minute drive from the city, our room was comfortable and private, and had WiFi included at no extra cost. The view was spectacular, particularly in the fantastic weather we had at the time. Our hosts were very friendly, and we enjoyed talking over breakfast...

We decided on short notice to stay in Wellington for a couple days, and we were pleasantly surprised to find availability at A Great View. We booked directly by phone with Bettina; no problems whatsoever. The house is a bit out of the way; our online map got us there, though. (The guest who arrived during our stay said he...

Staying at this B&B is for me like staying with good old friends. I've been at A GREAT VIEW for several times and always enjoyed the time with Neville and Bettina tremendously. The rooms and bathroom facilities were updated 2 years ago, they are nicely decorated and from high standard. Bettina is serving a yummy breakfast with lots of varieties...

Reviewed 20 February 2015

The home is beautiful. The rooms are lovely. The hosts are more than welcoming and charming. The views are really great, as advertised. But, it is not a particularly convenient location. Though only 15-20 minutes from Wellington, it is not easy to get to. Otherwise perfect.
