The property is dark, smells musty and needs updating. Didn't find anything quirky about the dust and the stained bathroom with previous guests' hair in drainage. Cluttered and a bit grim. Question the hygiene in the kitchen. Not a good experience for us.

My husband, 9-year old daughter and I stayed here two nights. The location was good because it was walking distance to Te Papa, the cable car and many restaurants. It is also right next to the hike up to Mt. Victoria, which is a great hike and amazing view, and windy! The host, Jane, was very nice told us a...

We choose B&Bs in our travels and have had some good experiences on three continents. This was among the best. Booklovers is comfortable but has nothing outstanding except for Jane, the host. It was always clean and it is convenient. Discussions with Jane about her writing and books in her many bookshelves were too short only because we'd have loved...

Old, dirty (the bath was full of death insects!)... The name sounds romantic and avocative but the reality stinks! (literally: It smells mildew and moisture.). The hosttest is nice but I won't recommend the place to anybody... Luckily, it was just one night.

If you want to see Wellington, there is a bus stop just in front that brings you to the city centre in less than 10 minutes. One guest can park a car on the property, for other guests a nearby parking that is free of charge from 6 pm to next morning 8 am, and limited to one hour otherwise....

We chose BnBs for our trip rather than hotels or resorts precisely for the kind of experience we had here ... personalized attention and an at home feel of the place. Booklovers is quaint and comfortable with good service and attention, both from Jane and other staff. For those exploring LOTR locations, it's also a short walk from Mt Victoria...

A word of warning. If you want a sterile chain hotel with strips across the lavvy to prove it has been cleaned, and an identikit welcome in every town, do NOT stay here. If you want a great welcome, a stay in a really nice friendly house where you are well looked after and you can sit over breakfast and...

Our bedroom was upstairs facing the road at the front of the house. It was cluttered and tired, the sort of room you would enjoy staying at in a friend's house, but it didn't feel appropriate in a fairly expensive B&B. The tiny shower room was awkwardly designed. However, I think at least one of the other bedrooms was more...

On arrival we received a friendly welcome from our host Jane. Our daughter and her fiancé had already arrived from Auckland (Ashburton for us) and were comfortably installed relaxing in their room. Our room was lovely. The Bed and Breakfast is close to town but right next door to the Mt Victoria green belt and we could hear the tuis...

We 'booked' Booklovers for the last night of our North Island road trip. The host Jane was very welcoming and helpful, especially as we needed breakfast at 6am to catch our early morning interisland ferry. Would happily stay here again :-)
