Booked an executive 2 bedroom suite for 2 nights. Had plenty of room for 4 of us. Staff were friendly and helpful in check in and out. Location is so handy for the TSB arena. The rooms were clean and furnished nicely. Beds SO comfortable, that was a real bonus as was the TV in the main bedroom. Had to...

With only one night in the city this was a great place to see the sights and enjoy the night life. Location is tricky to find by car but the room was nice and quiet. A short walk from the hotel and you were right in the middle of shops and restaurants. just next to the cable car trolley.

The hotel is a little tired but in a great location. We were upgraded to a three bedroom apartment which meant walking upstairs as the lift only goes to level 6 - not ideal for my elderly mum - but ok. Room was clean and kitchen had everything we needed. Staff were really helpful and nice. Car park is seperate...

CityLife has a great location on Lambton Quay - 2 blocks from TSB Arean where we were going to a concert, and close to metro supermarkets. We had 4 adults in a 2 bed apartment, which had a full kitchen, oven, washer/dryer etc. Lots of room! Bathroom was a little tired, but clean. Didn't try breakfast!
