“Great location and quality”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

We stayed 2 nights in "At Home Wellington" and were very satisfied with the experience. We had an executive studio with a nice view of the Te Papa museum. It was very comfortable and we were super happy with the fact that there was a washer/dryer in our room (which will be handy for anyone making a trip through New Zealand and stopping in Wellington before or after taking the ferry). The studio had a balcony with views over to Te Papa, but we couldn't really enjoy it as it was too windy.

The location was excellent, right across from the Te Papa museum, across from a cinema and very close to all of the main restaurants.

If you're travelling by car then you'll have to pay a bit extra for parking (located very close by).

Room Tip: I would advise taking a room with a view of Te Papa; I think there is a building site located nearby...

Dear Pr_review,
Thank you for your review and helpful information for other travellers. The view from the queen studios across to Te Papa is great and it highlights how very closely we are located to our national museum, a major drawcard for anyone visiting Wellington. We are pleased that you found the washer/dryer handy, many guests love being able to catch up on washing before heading onwards!
Regards, Hayley & Dwayne.

We picked At Home Wellington for two reasons - 1) the #1 ranking on Trip Advisor and 2) the facilities it offered. We were delighted with the kitchenette and washer/dryer. We couldn't have asked for a better location as everything was a short walk from the hotel, with Te Papa (a wonderful wonderful museum) directly behind and a street away. There is a massive supermarket a few blocks away where we got supplies for breakfast. Our room was large, with a balcony whose windows allowed in a ton of light. The one drawback was that one of the nights we stayed was New Year's Eve and some of our fellow guests made merry into the early hours of the morning. Otherwise we were delighted with At Home Wellington.

Stayed twice in December on our way down to Nelson and again on our way back up to Auckland and this place was perfect in every way. The location is fantastic with TePapa directly opposite and so close to all the restaurants, bars and the waterfront.

The rooms had everything we needed including a washer and dryer! The balconies were huge and we had a Queen studio on the first trip and a King room on the 2nd one. The King room was much larger and both had good sized balconies. I like the fact that the rooms were well thought out with the fridge at waist level, making it easy to open and close without bending. The beds are very comfortable and the best sleep we had throughout our trip in New Zealand. It's the small things that matter.

Hayley and Dwayne were excellent on both occassions and were very helpful (especially with parking) as it can be tricky. Wellington has many one way streets and they saved us a lot of time! Will be back.

My family and I recently stayed at "at home Wellington" and enjoyed it very much. The beds were fantastic, the location was perfect. The room had everything we needed, dishwasher, washing machine, pots, pans and the kitchen sink!
No need for a car everything is in walking distance. Wellington has so many things you can do with kids. Great restaurants very close by. We will be back! Thanks to Hayley and Dwayne for a great stay.

We chose this accommodation due to the location, and don't regret being so well located. But we wouldn't stay there again, I travel quite a bit and have a few mandatory requirements of a hotel these are;

1) Location - good
2) Cleanliness - no problems
3) Noise - when the wind blew, the windows whistled
4) Towels - thin and felt cheap
5) Comfy bed - soft and unsupportive

Dear Stormboy59,
Thank you very much for your feedback.

Firstly the positives, location and cleanliness - we are delighted that we achieved your expectations in these two important areas.

We are sorry that you experienced a couple of negatives during your stay which we would like to address. Firstly the noise from the wind - the rooms facing towards Te Papa are subject to the sometimes notorious Wellington winds which blow in from the harbour. We are currently checking all of the latches and seals around the windows to see if anything can be done to stop the "whistling". Secondly, the towels - we currently supply one bath sheet (large luxurious fluffy towel), and one regular towel in each room. We are planning to purchase more bath sheets and discontinue use of the regular towels in the very near future. Lastly, the bed - we are sorry that you felt it was soft and unsupportive. Most of our guests find our beds very comfortable, so we're sorry that it wasn't to your liking.

We really appreciate your comments as they help us make improvements for future visitors.

Thanks again,
Hayley & Dwayne

Situated across the road from the Papa museum and within a 5 - 10 minute walk to the harbour and restaurants and shops.
Room 'H' extremely clean with fridge, washing machine/dryer, hob, oven and microwave, tea and coffee facilities too. Air conditioned. King sized bed. Balcony and loungers. View of harbour. 10 minute drive to airport but no aircraft noise over hotel. Parking is $10 per night and only a three minute walk. Supermarket five min walk.
Run by Hayley and Dwayne who were very helpful.
Would recommend to all.

Room Tip: Room 'H' is a corner room which has an excellent view of harbour, however, suffers from cros...

We only stayed here for one night but I can see how it would do well for much longer too. It is in a great location - right opposite Te Papa but also near lots of great bars and restaurants on Courtenay Place.

The room was comfortable and clean and we really did feel "at home". Great facilities - washing machine, dryer, fridge, free wifi. Would recommend.
