  • This is a great treat and a wonderful example of early colonial living in Wellington. It reminds me of National Trust sites in the UK and is a really charming place with fascinating history even if you're not too aware of Katherine Mansfield.
  • Nice place to visit even if you don't know closer Katherine Mansfield. Love old interiors but I was disappointed a bit about space upstairs - half of it was closed for visitors.
  • Useful landmark. Helped us navigate around the maze-like backstreets of wellington. Would use again.
