The location of this hotel is very convenient. Paid parking is available just a couple of buildings away. The apartment style suite is lovely, comfortable and has a very good partial view. Wellington is a VERY windy city and the noise in our suite was the only drawback. Even though Wellington is very windy we have stayed other places that...

Everything about our experience ‘At Home’ was positive. To start with it’s easy to find, warm and helpful reception, and an early check in – thanks! The hosts were a delight - quick to supply maps, information about current events and things happening around Wellington. Our apartment (G) was fresh, modern and well laid out with all the requirements for...

The hotel was a great base, easy to find from the Ferry Terminal and lovely hosts who were very helpful. The rooms are well equipped with washing machine/ dryer, dishwasher and small kitchen. We had a view of the harbour which was great when the fireworks started for the end of Chinese New Year. Only downside is parking, we left...

This was our second stay at 'At Home' and we enjoyed it as much as the first. It's not a traditional accommodation as it's on the top floor of an office building and is limited in its services, but for visitors without a car who want to cater to themselves and have easy access to shopping, restaurants & Te Papa...

Wonderful proprietors help get you settled and oriented on the city. Fantastic location across from Te Papa Museum. You can walk everywhere. Parking is not provided and we juggled free hours on the street with short visits to pay parking lots - but it did not become an issue. Quiet even though its in the heart of the city.

Location. Location. But more. Right across the street from Te Papa. Just a short walk to the waterfront, Cuba Street and the cable car. Plus the accommodation is quiet, squeaky clean and comfortable. Full kitchen and laundry. Good wifi. Good plumbing. Staff friendly and very helpful. Some balconies have a bit of water view but not all. Two good grocery...

Being the first hotel we were staying at and only for one night we didn't have many expectations for this stay. The hotel is on the fourth floor of a small office building directly across from the Te PaPa museum. There is a gas station right around the corner and a straight drive to the ferry terminal. The location was...

Hi Dubster, we are delighted that you were pleasantly surprised and found the location perfect for getting to the Ferry Terminal. There is a bit of a trick to the hair dryer - you have to hold the button down for a couple of seconds. I remember to share that point with guests in the future. Thanks for the tip....

New owner since December. My guess is the previous owner loaded up the positive ratings through friends etc to get the number one spot, to help with the sale. Because there is NOTHING exceptional about this place. Good location in down town, on top of a squat office block. Daggy, cheap old lift, leads you to a fourth floor corridor,...

Although a strange set-up, taking up a floor within an office complex, this place was a lovely experience during our trip to NZ. Once you negotiate the one-way system (if driving like we did), and you can work out how to get inside the building you'll find the effort worthwhile! Lovely spacious and clean accommodation even if our balcony had...
