Enjoyable stay in a room that was a good size, clean and comfortable. Even though every room was occupied, we did not see or hear anyone throughout our stay. Excellent location and close to restaurants, cafés, the waterfront and the Reading cinema. Appreciated the little extras, including the dog, papers and magazines. Owners are 'very present' and active at the... More

The property offers reasonable value for your money as the rooms are cream, the beds comfy, and the water hot. For the a International traveler, unless you are familiar with Wellington a more full service hotel would be my first choice

Really convenient for the city centre - all within easy walking. Right next to Te Papa Museum and the esplanade. Charming hosts (and their puppy!). Couldn't fault the spacious room (which had a washer drier!) or the service. It was lovely and quiet too.Thank you Wayne and Hayley

This was my first stop in New Zealand and was most comfortable. My hosts were gracious and saw to it that I was comfortable. The location is terrific - very close to Te Papa and Circa Theater. Walking along the waterfront was a treat. I loved having the kitchen facilities. I also felt that it was reasonably priced.

Dear sue f, We are delighted that you were pleased with your choice to stay "At Home". Like you, so many guests comment about our fantastic location. Te Papa and the Circa Theatre are virtually across the road as you say, and the waterfront is a stone's throw and makes for a lovely walk on a nice day. Thanks for... More

Who could ask for more? The room was very clean, and it contained everything you needed for a "home away from home". Dwayne and Hayley were great and gave me all the information needed for a great stay. If I am ever back in Wellington, I would stay here. Don't bother to research any further - stay here.

The accommodation was different to what I expected for the price. I paid $199 for twin bed room. I did not realise that it is a boutique hotel above offices. That is a first experience. The room was modern, very clean and had everything needed and more - an actual cooktop stove, not just a microwave, for home-cooked meals; a... More

Dear WellNell, Thanks very much for sharing your feedback and placing a review. We're sorry that our unique style wasn't to your liking. You stayed in a king studio (set up as a twin with 2 x single beds). These rooms face Wakefield Street, so there are no harbour views. In fact, we only have one harbour view room which... More

Warm and clean. Convenient location. Bed comfortable. Toiletries nice. Mirror lighting in bathroom welcome as often hard to see make-up in other hotels. Staff helpful. Weather was too wet to make use of the balcony which looked nice.

Booked here based in TripAdvisor reviews. Was not disappointed. I was ready for the office-condo feel. It was worth it. This place had a boutique feel to it and feels like it's your own condo. Great rooms, very clean. Full kitchen and laundrette with soap provided. Noticed a 'common table' complete with tour books and other cooking extras. Close to... More

Great location with a very nice room though kind of small. The harbour view was great, there is plenty of space at the balcony, close proximity to a grocery store and the downtown Wellington. The staff treats you like family and always make you feel welcome like home.

I liked me last experience here, so I booked it again. I was not disappointed, even with the change of ownership, it is still lovingly managed and maintained at high standard.
