great location and friendly staff

Location is very good. Staff is friendly. Room is big and clean. Air condition is at living room, while this makes bedrooms a little bit cold. And I can not see how to improve this. We forgot to bring slippers, but hotel does NOT have any slippers either. (It is understandable) Not use WiFi because it is NOT free. (It is understandable)

Wellington comfort

Stayed twice, once on way to S Island, once on way back. Good hotel, 2 comfortable bedrooms for the 3 of us. For the price, would have expected free wi-fi in rooms, not just in lobby. This was the only downside.

Spacious family suite

I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite with my folks and we were all impressed with the space available, both rooms effectively had an ensuite bathroom and the kitchen amenities were pretty good. However a let down was the expensive Wi-Fi which is still charged at 'hotel' prices, whereas most other B&Bs and motels on our trip had free or reasonably priced wifi available.

Home away from home

I've stayed here many, many times for business and with the family. The staff are nice, the rooms are big and well appointed. Much more comforable than a hotel room. If you like apartment style then this place is for you.

Excellent executive accommodation

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.

A quick business trip

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.

Excellent Downtown Location

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.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The lower terminal of the Kelburn Cable Car is just 100 meters from CityLife's Lambton Quay entrance. Go out the door, turn left. The cable car ride (just a few dollars) takes you up to the Botanic Gardens and superb views over Wellington's harbour and hills.
