Great little hotel

Nice place to stay. Good location, and good sized room. Very comfortable apart from the pillows. Way too soft. My only suggestion would be a sign on the wall saying " Mind the step" to remind people there is a step down into the kitchen / entry door. We had a lovely stay though for 2 nights.

Two day business trip to Wellington

At Home says it's a boutique hotel. I was therefore expecting something unusual. In fact it's a bit like a motel sitting on top of an office block. I guess that's unusual but the rooms themselves are very standard. They are certainly clean, spacious, well equipped and comfortable. I enjoyed staying there and would stay again. The location is excellent - any closer to Te Papa and it would be an exhibit!

Our brief stay in Welly

Best of all was the location which was perfect for our brief stay in Wellington. We often visit Welly and this is the first time At Home so we will certainly consider it again. Really friendly staff and no-nonesense approach is perfect for us as we dont need the big foyer and gym etc. etc. Thanks guys

Great location close to Te Papa and waterfront

Pros: Location, full kitchen, balcony, heat pump
Location: Great location, Te Papa was only metres across the road. Very close to waterfront for walking
Great location close to Te Papa and waterfront. Also close to good restaurants and city centre. We chose this Hotel because it was very close to Te Papa and it had a full kitchen so we could prepare our own meals.We also received a complimentary continental breakfast which was very nice.
