Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a magnificent time staying at A Great View! The owners are very friendly and accommodating - treated us to some wine and a visit and gave us great advice on where to go in Wellington. The breakfast the next day was magnificent - say "yes" to the egg surprise! This B&B homestay is well-titled - it is indeed a great view!

Neville and Bettina are excellent hosts and offer a warm, friendly welcome to their delightful home which does indeed have a great view. Modern room with excellent en suite, excellent sleep in very quiet surroundings. Situated out of the city but very easy to get into - we drove 5 minutes to a local train station, parked up for free and were in the centre of Wellington 20 minutes later. There is an excellent walk which offers exceptional views of the city in close proximity to the residence, if you're a keen photographer don't miss it, it provides a stunning location for sunset.

We stayed only one night with Bettina and Nev but it was splendid! Room was really nice and clean and shared bathroom was roomy. Bettina asked right away if we want bottle of beer or glass of wine. We had together bottle beer and had really nice conversation! They gave us also lot of good tips restaurants and surroundings. I would happy to stay there again!

Bettina and Nev were wonderful hosts. However, this is truly their home. We were unaware we were going to have to share a bath-we booked through Agoda and it did not reveal that there was a shared bath. This is Bettina and Nev's home, so the shared lounge is really their living room. And, Bettina had recently acquired a darling cat, but 3 of the 4 of us are allergic to cats-we would have appreciated knowing before hand. The establishment was clean, the beds comfortable, and the breakfast was nice. Thanks to Bettina and Nev for their hospitality.

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you liked our breakfast and the comfortness of the beds. We are sorry that we could not meet all your expectations. It is clearly stated on the Agoda website under rooms description that the 2 rooms have a shared bathroom. Also stated is the shared TV lounge. Under hotel policies you will find a note that we do accept pets, which should lead to the conclusion that we might have a pet too. Kind regards, Bettina and Neville

We recently stayed at a Great View outside Wellington and whilst the location was elevated with a good vista the location was a little too far from the city centre. The rooms including the bathroom were comfortable but contained clothing and belongings of the owners. There was also a strong odour of cigarette smoke throughout the house and the owners quarters were not separated from our rooms - certainly not in the spirit of the B&B concept. The tariffs were far too high for the standard of the accommodation.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that our Homestay/B&B did not meet all your expectations. Most NZ B&B's are located in people's homes. We try to make this clear on our website, calling us Homestay/B&B. Our location is clearly indicated on our website. There were empty draws in the bedrooms and hanging wardrobes with clothes hangers over the door. If guests book for longer than one night the wardrobes are empty. You decided to stay another night the morning after your arrival, for which you received a discount. The odour of smoke was from an overcooked meal and toast in the morning for which we apologize. We tried to battle the odour with incent sticks. We hope the rest of your trip to NZ went well and are truly sorry that we did not meet all your expectations.

To stay at "A great view" is like coming home. Bettina and Nev are great hosts, they make you feel like being part of the family immediately. Their B&B is only a 15-minutes-drive from Wellington downtown, so you can easily reach all the sights around. The rooms are wonderful and the view over the mountains to the sea is just breathtaking. You could easily spend the whole day at the B&B inihilating the view!
We spend the evenings with Bettina and Nev in their living room talking and laughing like old friends. They are very helpful with everything and breakfast is very good. You can order an excellent fish dinner with them or you can have dinner at a nearby pub.
We would recommend the B&B to everyone. We stayed in several B&Bs during our last holidays, "A great view" was by far both the best service and the most pleasant stay.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in August with Neville and Bettina very very much. Picked up from the airport, superb home dining, very interesting conversation with our world traveled hosts. Nothing was a problem for them, much information about things to see and do around Wellington. Absolutely fabulous location with sea views extraordinaire. Would recommend to others for certain, and would envisage staying there again. Was just like being with family. Thank you for your hospitality.

My family and I stayed with Neville and Bettina in July 2012 and enjoyed our stay in their home.

Right at the outset they made us feel very welcome and made it very clear their home is our home. Everything was lovely and clean.

Our stay in Wellington was for 2 nights and it was a wonderful way to end our 3 week holiday in their home.

I have no hesitation in staying here again if we return to NZ for a 5th time.

In June we spent 3 days at "A Great View" and had just an amazing time. Bettia and Neville are wonderful hosts. Nothing is too much for them, they are helpful in every way. We love the cosy ambience of the house, every room is beutiful decorated with a mix of modern and antique furniture. The excellent breakfast buffet provided lots of variety to choose from. The views are spectular, we have sunshine and fresh Wellington air all day long. When we arrived Neville and Bettina shared with us a welcome drink and interesting conversation. One evening Neville cooked us a supreme sea food dinner and we spent a nice evening together.
We are truly sorry to leave this beautiful B&B to travel to our next destination. When we come back to Wellington we will definitely stay again at "A Great View".

The room we stayed in was inviting very clean and cosy with a mix of antique and moden. The beds were very comfortable the bathroom is spacious. Bettina And Nev are wonderful Hosts they prepared a fantastic breakfast which we were able to choose a variety of food.The area of the location is very quiet and we had a great sleep.Bettina and Nev are very helpful with recommending good restaurants.
when we arrived we had a drink with them and enjoyed an interesting conversation. When we come back to wellington we would love to stay again with them in this charming BnB.
Thanks Nev and Bettina for making our stay one to remember and please keep intouch
