The room we stayed in at Dorothy and Neil's home was fantastic. It was immaculate and had a very cosy bed and nice thick towels. They also left us some fresh water and chocolates! The bathroom was spacious and the breakfast Dorothy provided was fantastic: cereal, toast, fruit, juice and coffee.
Her home is a 10min drive to the city centre or buses can be reached from nearby Brooklyn Village (a 20min walk downhill).
The views from the her home of Wellington and the bay are amazing.
Dorothy was friendly throughout our contact before our stay and made us feel very welcome in her home. She gave us all the information we needed to know to make the most of our time in the city too.
Would stay again.
Our stay with Dorothy was quite pleasant. She provided us with great advice on what to see in Wellington, and prepared a delicious and filling breakfast for us each morning. My husband and I really enjoyed chatting with her about her experiences. The accommodations themselves were clean and tidy and very comfortable. Driving up to the house involved more than a few twisty roads but it seems this is quite common on the North Island, and on the plus side, they lead to a beautiful panoramic view.
All in all a great experience and I'd happily recommend staying with her to anyone visits Wellington!
We stayed with Dorothy for just one night on our way from Picton to Wellington as a stopover for our journey into North Island. Dorothy welcomed us warmly and after showing us to our room and adjoining bathroom we had a lovely welcome cup of tea. As we only had a few hours to spare in Wellington, Dorothy's advice on getting into the City was invaluable. We parked our car in a nearly street and took the bus into the city, which was much easier than trying to find somewhere to park on a busy Friday afternoon. We slept well in our room , our double bed was very comfortable. The following morning we were given a welcome breakfast of cereals, toast, fruit, tea and coffee which was enough for us. I would recommend staying with Dorothy if you are looking for somewhere to stay to see the city of Wellington. Dorothy was very keen to help us in any way she could to make our stay enjoyable.
Dorothy is a very welcoming person and really nice. She do all for your stay go well.
She has a large and beautiful house with a magnificent view.
Thank you again Dorothy.
I would urge this place.
Dorothy was very welcoming and helpful. My Mum was visiting us from Melbourne and I needed somewhere comfortable and friendly in Brooklyn.
Dorothy's place is modern and has great views of Wellington Harbour.
It is a little way from public transport and would suit someone with their own car or a rented car. There is plenty of parking around.
We eventually left a few days early, but that was entirely due to our own situation. My Mum was not very mobile and found the steps in Wellington difficult, but that was no reflection on Dorothy's place.
Dorothy and her husband were both very accommodating and kind hosts. As the title of their advert implies, their home commands a fine view from well above the city of Wellington. The home was spotless, and I was provided with everything required for an enjoyable stay.
The room was cosy and had a fabulous view of Wellington, even before the clouds came about. Dorothy (& Neil) gave us some great advice about what to do in our short stay and we are so glad we took on their advice.
And the breakfast was great too.
Dorothy and Neil are wonderful people and great hosts! Plus the view from their place is amazing! We stayed only one night but I can for sure recommend.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
We were made very welcome by Dorothy. Our room was well furnished and a good size. Bathroom and toilet were adjacent. Breakfast was very good and we received a lot of good advice which helped us on our travels. We would highly recommend.
it was a pleasure to have Denise and Clive as guests!
Dorothy has a beautiful house with a spectacular view in the hills above Brooklyn Village in Wellington. Dorothy and her partner Neil are friendly and engaging, the house is clean and very well kept. It's a bit of a truck down to the village, but Dorothy was always willing to give me a lift in her car, and the bus service is excellent. Great bike riding in the area!
Dorothy is an excellent guest, it was a real pleasure to have her stay. Her communication prior to and during her stay was very good, she was very courteous, easy and relaxed to chat with. She treated our home with the upmost respect and we'd be more than happy to have her and stay with us again.
