“At Home Wellington is fantastic!”
Reviewed April 20, 2009

I travel all over the country for work and freqent many different hotels etc, in Wellington my first choice by far and in fact it rates as my favourite in NZ. At "At Home Wellington" the personal service recieved by the staff is first class and the accomodation itself is the best availible, the room are spacious and ultra modern all meaning the best value for money in Wellington. The location is also one of the best in town with a 100m walk to the main strip and all the fine dinning and entertaining you can handle. All in all it dosent get any better and i would highley recommend to all travellers to Wellington.

This hotel is really more of a serviced apartment, which suited our needs nicely. The owner, Leanne, was very friendly, and gave us great tips on where to eat and things to do. The apartment was spacious and came with a cook top, oven, dishwasher, laundry, toaster, iron/ironing board, and high speed internet. The location could not better - Te Papa is one street away, the harbor is close by, as is Courtney Place and Cuba Street. Our unit faced the street, and on one of the nights, a car alarm from the parking structure across the street went off at 4:30 a.m. and went on for a good half hour. Not the hotel's fault, of course, but just be aware that there will be some noise from the traffic.

I had the good fortune to stay here after relocating from England for work and it was a great way to start my new life in New Zealand! The rooms are large, airy, modern, incredibly comfortable to stay in and have everything you could need (right down to the dvd player and Ipod docking station). The facilities in my room (dish washer, washing machine etc) were all in great condition so that it felt more like staying in a 'home away from home' than anything else.
The real joy though was in how well looked after I was by everyone there. They take the time to get to know you and really make you feel at home. Everyone was incredibly friendly and couldn't be more helpful no matter what the request.
All in all a great stay!

At Home Wellington City was nice enough but wasn't really a hotel as I know it. It takes up the 4th floor of an office building in downtown Wellington. It's a good location but hard to find the first time. No front reception, just an office entry. Waterview is blocked. I'd call it a serviced apartment. It was clean and if you rang a number someone came and they were friendly and helpful but none of the other facilities you might get at a "hotel." The location was good, though no view.

Very enjoyable stay of three nights at Easter weekend in these apartments. Nice rooms with great beds and linen. Good supply of teas and coffee for plunger. Leanne was very helpful and our boys were thrilled with the chocolate bunnies they received on arrival. Located just across the road from Te Papa Museum (which is great) and also close to waterfront for walks and sitting in sunshine. McDonald's and BP Service Station quite close which was handy for children's breakfast and coffee for Mum and Dad.

This has to rate as one of the best central city hotels in New Zealand. Great roomy accommodation, all looking brand new, with great facilities including dishwasher, washer/dryer etc. etc. Very comfortable and all spotlessly clean. Some noise from the road, but had a nice balcony perfect for a glass of wine before going out for the evening.

Hotel easily missed when driving (very small sign), and although there is free parking (over the road) you have to grab a spot outside to unload baggage etc. which can be interesting depending on the traffic!

100 metres from the Te Papa museum entrance and the harbour.

Only three minutes walk to the 'Mac Brewery' micro brewery and pub - their fish & chips is unbeatable, as is their beer and atmosphere.

Once again I was truly impressed with At Home Wellington City. The Manager Leanne makes you feel so welcome upon arrival. Check in is simple and easy. The rooms are lovely in size and view. I looked out towards Te Papa this stay. All the mod cons in the room including an ipod docking station - thankfully I'd remembered to bring my ipod with me. Location is fantastic for both business and social activities - Courtenay Place is a short stroll away and Te Papa is just across the road. The New World Supermarket is just along the street. Without hesitation I'd stay at At Home Wellington City.
