I stayed in the CityLife on Lampton Quay on Monday the 31st of August. I stayed in this hotel 5 days a week for about 8 months in 2002 and 2003, so I had high expectations. I was very disappointed to find that the room that I was in (204) had clearly not been touched in any meaningful way since... More

A group of four of us stayed here on a trip to watch rugby and it was perfect. As with everything downtown, it was walking distance to everything we needed; food, shops, the Cake Tin, bars. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room we had was massive and fit four comfortably with two bathrooms and a large living area.

We stayed in a two bedroom 1st floor apartment. Well equipped, ie washing machine, dryer, full oven (although slightly lacking a large fry pan and roasting dish). Although no view it was comfortable, warm and reasonably spacious. Could perhaps do with an extra seat in the lounge to accomdate 4 guests. Plenty of different types of tea and also plunger... More

We upgraded to accommodate family and were rewarded with a lovely spacious two bedroomed unit (washing machine, dryer, dishwasher) with lots of space to have people over for a coffee. But, the best thing were the beds. It's always difficult to get a good night's sleep in a strange bed but the beds at CityLife had me thinking how I... More

I have stayed at this property several times and have always had a good stay. The apartments are well furnished and comfortable. The beds although on the smaller side, were also comfortable. Since I do travel a lot, I do try and cook my own meals when the opportunity presents itself and the Citylife Wellington does present those options with... More

I was visiting from England, celebrating my niece being at university in Wellington. We had a 2 bedroom apartment for 4 of us. We ran out of hot water and when we reported in to Julie on reception, she wasn't very helpful and was quite rude, but on speaking to the manager Akash, he was apologetic and said he would... More

I had a really good stay at this hotel. The roo was really comfortable and immaculately clean, and the staff really friendly and nice. Best of all I got a really good nights sleep, no intrusive noise and all the rooms were away from the lifts.

Because it's so central and you can walk to events, sights, restaurants etc. this was our first time at CityLife Wellington and we got upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment, which was awesome as we just had so much room to spread out and relax. Rooms were spotless and the beds are super comfy. Having a full kitchen is awesome... More

Our stay here was pretty good with only a couple of negatives but one was resolved quickly. The T.V in the bedroom was faulty and was replaced with a new one in record time - great service. The other problem we had was when cooking, the range hood was inadequate and the apartment became smokey so we had to open... More
