At Home Wellington
Ranked #1 of 46 Hotels in Wellington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 March 2012

My wife and I spent a couple nights in At Home while visiting Wellington in January. The hotel is ideally located to access the museum and waterfront areas. The location is on the top floor of what appears to be a commercial building. Rooms were clean and nice with good amenities. Only drawback we found was the balconys overlook a fast food restaurant nearby where the grill is vented off the roof and the fast food odors made it tough to keep the sliders or windows open while we were there. Very friendly staffers and key card access to a local fitness room makes a nice addition to the facility.

We visited Wellington to see Shakepeare's "The Winter's Tale". The Wellington autumn was appropriately wintery but staying at "At Home" made surviving the gale a breeze. The apartment- style room had everything we needed, the bed was very comfortable and there was a great balcony with a view towards the water. Te Papa, the Opera House and the top Wellington CBD restaurants are a short stroll away. Everybody was very friendly and helpful. A great find.

The entrance to the apartment was a little odd with no reception desk and only a buzzer to gain entrance but once in, we expereinced a friendly greeting and were taken to our room. The room was very large, clean and had a good sized balcony. We were left without having to complete any paper work. This is deffintely the place to go if you just want to be left alone. I know Wellington well so did not require any advice or recommendations so can not comment on this side of the hotel.

The location is as good as it gets. 5 mins to Te Papa, 5 mins to Courtenay Place (restaurants and bars) and 10 minutes to Lambton Quay or Cuba Mall (shopping). We literally walked everywhere.

Only negative I could possibly find is that the water pressure in the shower was very poor. But if this is the only negative that tells you that this is a great place to stay.

Very reasonably priced also.

Stayed here for 5 nights in January, in a studio room overlooking Te Papa Museum. Just outside the heart of the city, but still within walking distance of everything, the accommodation was very comfortable and had everything we needed, including a washer/dryer. It's fourth floor location made for a very quiet stay. Highly recommended. Information provided by the owners included a recommendation to a nearby restaurant called 'Two Souls' where we enjoyed a lovely meal at a reasonable price. Try the seafood chowder - you won't be disappointed. A large New World supermarket nearby for all supplies was a bonus, and public transport is only one street back. The extensive redeveloped waterfront area is just behind Te Papa and is great for strolling.

Room Tip: Try to get one overlooking Te Papa Museum.
