We went to check in to our 'studio' apartment only to be told our room had been upgraded to a two bedroom/2 ensuite apartment! It was fantastic, 1st time that has happened to us, shame we couldn't stay longer. As always, good value for money and superb service.

Our suite at the CityLife was convenient, comfortable, well-equipped and reasonably priced. The hotel is located midway between our conference venue and the cultural precinct and an easy walk from both. Despite being right in the centre of things it was quiet (aside from an occasional eruption from other guests). Within the suite the rooms were of ample size; no need to turn sideways to squeeze past the bed. The kitchen was fully kitted out, and the dining area would seat six without bumping knees. The bathrooms, which appeared quite up-to-date, featured comfortably large showers and effective ventilation. The price was less than that of a simple room in some other more prestigious establishments nearby. Highly recommended - and would suit a longer stay.

Clean and comfortable. Cooking facilities in room which was good. Just a little bit away from eating places on a cold wet Tuesday evening in winter.

After a bad start.. we couldn't find the main entrance, it is quite complicated when you don't know wellington. We dealt with a lovely staff, efficient and smiling. We had a really lovely stay at the citylife. Hightly recommanded. They just need to clarify the address of the main entrance as gilmer street and get a bigger sign on lambton quay.

The hotel is located with the ground floor on Lambton Quay and the sixth floor (reception etc) on Gilmer St which is off The Terrace. Thus the hotel has entrances on two of Wellingtons most well-known downtown thoroughfares. The lower entrance on Lambton Quay is for pedestrian traffic only. Cars, taxis and shuttles use the 6th floor entrance where there is limited parking. On check-in, the hotel upgraded us to a two-bedroom suite which was appreciated.

It's a great location in the heart of town. The 2 bedroom apartment had 2 bathrooms and a very spacious living area. The only problem was that the dishwasher didn't work. Despite raising this with the staff at reception they were unable to get it fixed as it was very early in the new year and the repair guy was still on leave. They offered to get housekeeping to wash up for us, but that didn't happen. The staff were very apologetic and brought us a bottle of wine which was very kind. I'd recommend this hotel, it's convenient and very comfortable. I have reduced the rating purely for the dishwasher issue. Otherwise all was good.

We had a two bedroom appartment which was fully equipped: washingmachine, dryer, dishwasher, oven, two toilets, two tv's, ipod-dockingstation, DVD player, etc., etc. and plenty of room. From your room to the shops in Lambton Quai within 30 sec. ! 5 min. walk to the waterfront

Rooms on Lambton Quai very noisy from traffic below - no double glazing. We were asked to pay for self service coffee or tea (sachets) as an extra at breakfast! Comfortable suites.

The location is perfect it is right in the city center and you can walk everywhere that you need to go. When we arrived they did not have our booking which was a pain as we had to wait in reception for quite a long time while they tried to sort it out lucky they were not completely booked out or else we would not have had anywhere to stay.... the good thing is that they had to upgrade us to another room. The room was nice, but the view of the next door carpark was not quite so nice we also must have been near a kitchen because we woke up to cooking smells in the morning and at night our room would smell of cooking. which was not overly pleasant but did make us hungry.

took advantage of our member dollars so great value. We always stay here when in wellington due to good service and location but this time the bathroom and bedding-outer-bedspreads etc could really do with a clean up.
