My wife and I stayed two nights at the Brick House B&B during Rugby World Cup. The house is charming and very clean. Very good breakfast selection layed out in a beautiful dining room with a great view of Wellington. The location is optimal for walking access to the entire downtown core. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.

Brick House is a wonderful 1920s house in Central Wellington. Chris and Ruth are generous and interesting hosts. We enjoyed our stay.

Spent two enjoyable nights here. Our host Chris was extremely helpful and the location made it easy for walking to places. The fact that there were four of us Travelling together made sharing the bathroom easier than it might have been otherwise.

Recently stayed at the Brick House B & B. The place is comfortable but its location is at the end of a busy road which means there is plenty of noise from the traffic below. We found that the noise level did improve at night time. However, the location is close to shops and restaurants and there is a bus... More

I spent 5 nights at this B&B and the owners, Chris and Ruth, made me feel very welcome. My room was comfortable and clean and the chocolate was a nice touch! It does not take long to walk down to the harbor and Te Papa, but if you are not feeling energetic, there are buses that stop near the B&B... More
