“Really like a home away from home!”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Absolutely beautiful, centrally located and very friendly service! We even skipped our desert to hang out 'at home'! Highly recommended to anybody who is looking for the little bit of extra comfort and personal touch!

Enjoyable stay in a room that was a good size, clean and comfortable. Even though every room was occupied, we did not see or hear anyone throughout our stay. Excellent location and close to restaurants, cafés, the waterfront and the Reading cinema. Appreciated the little extras, including the dog, papers and magazines. Owners are 'very present' and active at the property and worked hard to make sure all aspects of our stay went well. Small, discreet, and definitely a boutique experience for anyone wanting to do their own thing in Wellington.

The property offers reasonable value for your money as the rooms are cream, the beds comfy, and the water hot. For the a International traveler, unless you are familiar with Wellington a more full service hotel would be my first choice

While the rooms are all fully self-contained, we are always on-site to chat if you need information/advice on Wellington. We aim to provide personalized service. P.S. Glad to hear you found the beds comfy!
Kind regards,

Really convenient for the city centre - all within easy walking. Right next to Te Papa Museum and the esplanade. Charming hosts (and their puppy!). Couldn't fault the spacious room (which had a washer drier!) or the service. It was lovely and quiet too.Thank you Wayne and Hayley

This was my first stop in New Zealand and was most comfortable. My hosts were gracious and saw to it that I was comfortable. The location is terrific - very close to Te Papa and Circa Theater.
Walking along the waterfront was a treat. I loved having the kitchen facilities. I also felt that it was reasonably priced.

Dear sue f,
We are delighted that you were pleased with your choice to stay "At Home". Like you, so many guests comment about our fantastic location. Te Papa and the Circa Theatre are virtually across the road as you say, and the waterfront is a stone's throw and makes for a lovely walk on a nice day. Thanks for taking the time to write a review!

Who could ask for more? The room was very clean, and it contained everything you needed for a "home away from home". Dwayne and Hayley were great and gave me all the information needed for a great stay. If I am ever back in Wellington, I would stay here. Don't bother to research any further - stay here.

Room Tip: Any room with a balcony is great!

The accommodation was different to what I expected for the price. I paid $199 for twin bed room. I did not realise that it is a boutique hotel above offices. That is a first experience. The room was modern, very clean and had everything needed and more - an actual cooktop stove, not just a microwave, for home-cooked meals; a small sitting area inside; a small
balcony with outdoor setting. Our balcony overlooked a carpark and graffiti-ed wall - again not what I expected as thought most reviews mentioned harbour views.
I would not stay here again but recommend for location, cleanliness, very helpful, obliging managers & cooking/dishwasher/washing machine features if those are high on list of priorities.

Dear WellNell,
Thanks very much for sharing your feedback and placing a review. We're sorry that our unique style wasn't to your liking. You stayed in a king studio (set up as a twin with 2 x single beds). These rooms face Wakefield Street, so there are no harbour views. In fact, we only have one harbour view room which is a queen studio on the other side of the building. We're delighted however that you found the room to be modern and well equipped with everything you needed to create a home away from home!
