“Lovely stay”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

On arrival, I was greeted by the assistant manager who was amazingly friendly, and welcoming She helped me to find a place to park the car for the weekend without it costing a fortune. The apartment was immaculate,roomy and with the most comfortable bed. Great view, made good use of the gym on the ground floor and would highly recommend these apartments.

We decided to head away for a weekend, and chose to stay with "at home wellington"

What an amazing experience we had!

The service, the staff, the views and the perfect location!
You're in the centre of the city, so easy to get around and everything is so close.

Thank you once again for the great couple of nights we spent with you guys!!!

We are looking forward to staying with you again :)

We loved being so close to the Wgtn waterfront to take advantage of all that it has to offer in the weekend. It's also an easy walk to many lovely restaurants. Super comfy bed, clean and tidy room, awesome wee harbour view (only marred by the smell from McDonalds next door). We were very touched by the unexpected complimentary bottle of bubbles that Dwayne and Hayley had provided for our anniversary. Will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others for a weekend getaway!

We recently stayed in the 1 Bedroom Suite and found the accommodation perfect. Dwayne checked us in and gave us all the info we needed and more. Nothing was a problem throughout our stay. The location is in downtown Wellington and close to everything so we were able to walk everywhere. I was travelling with my daughter and granddaughter and we felt really secure staying there as the apartments are at the top of a building with keycard access only for entrance and lift.
The apartment had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. The highlight for my granddaughter was meeting Hayley and Dwayne's wee dog, Kenzie.
Thank you for a great stay!

Dear MaramaWaiata,
Thank you for the terrific review! We really enjoyed meeting you and your family, and are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us! Wee Kenzie loved meeting your Granddaughter too!

We stayed in the Queen Studio for 2 nights. After visiting a few other hotels/motels across NZ during this holiday I was struck by how secure and homelike these apartments felt. The location is perfect- in town close to the museum, restaurants and the New World supermarket at the end of the street. The room was modern with trendy decor. The kitchenette is well set up with stovetop, oven, microwave and fridge. There is also a combo washer/dryer in the room which is useful after a bit of traveling. The room provides organic fairtrade teas and coffees which is a nice touch. The rooms are fairly quiet with no noise from the city at all and only minor sound from the neighbouring room. The only minor issue is that there is no onsite carpark- however there is an option to park a car down the road in a public carpark for $10/day using the voucher from the apartments. The loading bay out the front can be used for 5 minutes for luggage transfers. The managers live onsite and were very friendly and easy going.

Hayley & Dwayne run these apartments which are at the top of an office building. As a result you get a very secure feeling staying there because no-one can get in. Dwayne was the most helpful man and I can imagine everyone feels that way about him. The apartment was modern, spotlessly clean, well equipped. We stayed 3 nights and it really does feel like you 'live' there, not just 'staying'. Perfect location, very close to Te Papa, lots of really good restaurants.

A walk to get to the city centre but what better way to see somewhere than walk, plenty of shops to see along the way. Also there is a Reading Theatre very close, if we had been there another day we would have gone to see a movie. Shops around the Theatre are a bit run down though.

Has a washing machine that is a combo drier also but we found by putting the airer on the balcony everything dried, I suppose it would be different in wet or cold weather.

Highly recommend it for any stay in Wellington.

Room Tip: Just explain to Dwayne what you would like and he will help you choose.

Perfect location in downtown Wellington. Could walk to sights we wanted to see.

They had parking lot that was used by hotel, 10 dollars a day. Was close by, so easy to deal with. There was spot in front of hotel so we could unload bags, then just park.

Nice size room with little kitchen area and small sitting area. Ensuite private bathroom has shower, was adequate size.

Kitchen had small fridge, dishwasher, small stove, microwave and stovetop. Also tea and coffee station,

Free wireless. Small patio off of sitting area.

There was also small washer/dryer in one. Good for small amount of laundry. If you have large amounts just go to laundromat.

Clean. Some street noise, but it's is a city.
