Owned and run by the writer, Jane Tollerton, Booklovers is a Bed and Breakfast in downtown Wellington, “for those who like books, cafes and culture”.
Jane bought the house at 123 Pirie Street in 1999, having admired it for many years and began a major renovation project to turn it into Booklovers. Having spent her life collecting beautiful old china and linens she says she felt destined run a B&B and now often finds inspiration for her writing from chats with guests over the breakfast table!
Booklovers has three outstanding guest rooms with lovely views over the city, and is just ten minutes’ walk from Te Papa and the dozens of wonderful cafes and restaurants Wellington has to offer.
