Three nights in Wellington gave us a chance to unpack, regroup, and catch our collective breaths. Stella and Juergen helped orient us to Wellington. Weka Cave Studios, Franziska for dinner in Seatown, the World War 1 exhibit at the national museum, unwrapped the city as locals might enjoy. Highly recommend Edgewater Lodge. Close enough to the city in a seaside...

My husband and I spent Easter weekend at Edgewater Lodge. We have no hesitation in recommending Edgwater Lodge as the place to stay in Wellington. Stella and Jurgen are welcoming and helpful. Our bedroom was superb, with a lovely view out to the harbour. Plenty of room to store all our belongings. The ensuite bathroom was spacious, shower superb. Lovely...

Our most expensive stay in New Zealand, but we don't regret a cent of it. The view is gorgeous with Wellington across the bay. Sure, parking is squishy and our room was not big, but it was luxuriously appointed. The breakfast was a spread like none other. Homemade banana bread, croissants, muesli, yogurt, cheeses, vast array of fresh fruit... and...

Beautiful location, very friendly and helpful hosts. Delicious breakfasts! Close to airport, but quiet and very chill. Also walking distance to great restaurants and Weta Cave. Clean room with view of bay.

A seasoned traveller for work i was delighted to stumble across the wonderful experience at Edgewater. Fabulous rooms with a view of the ocean, with non fuss exquisite service. Opportunities for good coffee and gourmet meals around the corner, after a good walk on the beach or up the cliff face. Really loved the experience

Everything was great! The bedrooms, the location, the views. Stella is a great cook and made for us a delicious breakfast; she and Jurgen gave us great ideas of what to do near the place. Hope we'll return on our next trip to NZ. Thank you very much! We were very happy during our stay.

This is a stylish and beautiful home in a surprisingly picturesque location, just 5 minutes from the heart of Wellington. You will think you're holidaying in a small seaside village rather than a capital city. Rooms are clean and large, breakfast is sensational and the hosts are genuinely friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend this...
