We recommend that you book your accommodation as early as possible, as there are a number of other large events taking place in Wellington that weekend, and some hotels are already booked out.

On-site accommodation – FULLY BOOKED

Information on the Home of Compassion (PDF)

We are offering on-site accommodation at the Home of Compassion for up to 33 people. These rooms will be offered on a first come first served basis.

Some of the rooms are twin shares, some have single beds and some have double beds. There are also two single occupancy rooms for less mobile people. Each room has its own separate bathroom which can only be accessed by the swipe card of the room occupier(s). Everyone who stays is given a light breakfast of cereal, toast, tea and coffee. The self-catering kitchen is available at all times during the conference. You may choose to bring extra food to cook on-site. Wi-fi is included.

The rooms are offered as a set package, so if you take a room you have it for the full three nights (Thursday, Friday and Saturday). The costs quoted below are therefore for three nights’ occupancy. Entry is from 1pm on Thursday, and all rooms must be checked out of by 10am on Sunday.

  • Single occupancy unit – $250, FULLY BOOKED
  • Twin single share units – $380 (whether single or double occupancy), FULLY BOOKED
  • Double bedroom units – $350 (whether single or double occupancy), FULLY BOOKED
  • Single occupancy unit for less mobile – $280, FULLY BOOKED
  • Two bedroom apartment -$450 (1 twin and 1 double room, kitchen/dining), FULLY BOOKED

Sunday night

There is also the option to extend your stay through Sunday night. You might want to make use of this if you are going to the post-conference workshop on Monday. The rates quoted above do not include Sunday night. Please let Cherry know when you register if you want your room for Sunday also, and she will add the extra night on to your final invoice.

Please note that this option is only available to people who are already staying at the Home of Compassion for Thursday-Saturday nights.
