I love this place, it was so close to work and a walk downstairs if you forgot your toothbrush or wanted a quick bite. However if you're going for a nice new place I would suggest somewhere else. The staff were amazing. I just find the place a little outdated Would stay again

From start to finish this was a great place to stay. The service was excellent, the room lovely with a lovely feel to it and absolutely spotless. The bed was blissful and we were reluctant to leave! They can't do enough for you here and I've already booked my next CityLife stay!!!

Great rooms, well equipped, not the first time we have stayed here! Great location! Welcome was good and before we knew it a lady had taken our bags to the room! Very helpful staff! Two issues! Rooms need a little TLC, they are showing signs of age and secondly, getting hold of someone by telephone was a nightmare! I rang...

Nice clean hotel, in a central location. Friendly staff. Was good to have our family in a two bedroom apartment rather than two adjoining rooms. Unfortunately though there is no parking at the hotel and the allocated parking is at a parking station nearby. We arrived back at the hotel late one night and all the parking had been taken...

When you check in the reception is actually upstairs 6th floor out the back [I think] as the apartments is on a very steep hill. A quaint thing really. We had a 2 bedroom apartment staying 2 nights on the 3rd floor in Jan 2017. The view was sensational overlooking Lambton Quay Street on the main street in windy Wellington....

The only negative thing I have to say is that on our first night, I did hear a lot of noise from the room next door. The walls were a little too thin! However the next night I closed my bedroom door, and didn't hear a thing! We had a really spacious and clean room, with 2 large bathrooms, 2...

It had 2 double bedrooms, kitchen which was well equipped- washing machine, dryer & dishwasher. Very clean, lots of plug points around and also nice toiletries in bathroom. Staff very friendly.

The studio room was very nice - spacious, clean and quiet. It did not have any view from the window but was not an issue for me. Having real coffee and a plunger in a room was however a great advantage. The room had everything for a comfortable stay - plates, cups, microwave, toaster and cutlery. There is also a...
