I bought 123 Pirie Street in 1999, while looking for a way to make a living while writing books. Today, the house functions as a B&B from October to April. From May to September it operates as a mix of B&B and writers’ residency.Learn More

Thank you, Jane. We have loved our stay at Booklovers. The house and rooms are beautiful, and you are a wonderful, warm hostess. And what a book collection!
We absolutely love staying at Booklovers! Its great location provides easy access to the city while still offering the character of beautiful Mt Vic and quiet evenings. The bedrooms and bathrooms are warm, comfortable, stylish and clean. There is always an easy, warm and friendly atmosphere, Jane is an excellent host. Not to mention the great conversations around the breakfast table, the interesting art, the wide variety of books to browse through and the charming character of the house itself! 10/10 from us!
Beautiful building, lovingly decorated and convenient to all activities in Wellington. You will remember fondly the friendliness, kindness, helpfulness and honesty of the award-winning writer and journalist who is the owner/manager and of the woman who is in charge of cleaning. On the basis of long experience with Wellington B&Bs, I'd say without hesitation that this is the best in town!
I came to Wellington for Katherine Mansfield, the early twentieth-century writer, and I found Jane, another writer. So nice and friendly, she made my stay as if I was in my own house - and much more.
It's so fancy here -- I love it. The food is amazing
Apple juice, granola/muesli, tinned peaches and yoghurt; Vogel’s toast with spreads; good coffee and variety of teas
