Returned yday from a one-night stay at 'At Home'. There were 5 of us in our party; my daughter & I shared a king room & 3 friends stayed in a queen room with an extra single bed. Our room over-looked the carpark behing Reading Courthey which was fine as we weren't overlooked; there was some traffic noise but then we were staying in the CBD!! Our friends were on the Te Papa / harbour side although their view was really restricted to another apartment block.
We flew in hideously early & Suresh kindly let us in at 8ish to ditch our bags; he gave us a swipe card to get back in & pointed us towards Joe's Garage for breakfast (2 blocks away... recommend it... they catered for a gluten free diet which was great). Similarly, we left our bags behind until our late-ish flight home yesterday. They also made a much appreciated effort to get our rooms ready early - thanks guys!
Couldn't fault the accommodation at all. Lovely rooms, comfortable contemporary furnishings and a stunning bed. Great to actually see a small oven instead of just a hotplate & microwave.
2 minutes walk to Te Papa and Courtney Place.... New World 2 blocks away and any Macca's fans will be pleased to know there's a set of Golden Arches 30 seconds away!! An easy walk to Cuba Street and Lambton Quay.
Katrina & Suresh were lovely & couldn't have been more accommodating; it's called 'At Home' for good reason... I loved the size of the place; all rooms lead off one central corridor with the manager's office 'overseeing' everything. Feels very secure being on the 4th (top) floor of a commercial building. My daughter didn't want to leave and struck up a friendship with the smallest member of their family.
The free Wi-Fi was great as has been previously mentioned.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend At Home to anyone; book well ahead though as I get the impression that they're permanently chocca.
Look forward to my next visit :o)
