Location of At Home Wellington is excellent -- just across from the waterfront and the Te Papa museum, and a couple of blocks from lots and lots of bars and restaurants on Courtenay Place and nearby streets.
This really is a boutique hotel -- only a dozen or so apartments on one floor. The apartments are very well equipped for long-term travelers: strong free wifi, washing machine, dishwasher, cooktop, oven, microwave, aircon, cable TV.
But we were just in town for a couple days and didn't use most of that stuff. Purely as hotel lodging, it was nice enough but not overwhelming -- especially compared to the many motel rooms we have stayed in around NZ, most of which are equally well equipped, much larger and more reasonably priced. The bathroom was particularly small and felt cramped. There was no space at all for a towel rack, and we ended up hanging the towels from the shower door (they were then not changed and so still slightly damp the second night.)
Those are minor inconveniences, and I would rate this as very good lodging, just not particular value for money (our hotel room in a 5-star hotel in downtown Auckland cost less, though admittedly it didn't have all the long-term stay equipment).
