    I enjoyed that the Hotel was so central to town and very comfortable. It was very accessable and parking was a breeze. The Room was very nice and I will be recemmonding Citylift to others and will be certain to come and stay again in the near future.

    Comfortable and Safe

    All water kettles are stained with burned marks in it, including the replacement kettles. Lack of parking space.

    It's location, it was central to the Stadium.

    The windows didn't open, the air conditioner was rubbish, the rooms we got didn't look anything like the ones on the internet when we booked. The price was ridiculous for the actual rooms we got. We don't mind spending a decent amount for a decent room. The parking was rubbish and we had to pay for a park on top of a very large tariff for the room.

    The two bedroom apartment was great. The beds were comfortable and rooms were large. So close to all the great shopping and walking distance to great bars and pubs.

    The staff seemed to have no information about Wellington and were to eat. The lounge room aka eating area was very small and expensive when you could walk for a few minutes to a great cafe

    This hotel is in the middle of the shopping/business district in Wellington. Apartment was roomy and comfortable. It would be excellent for a business stay.

    The view from the window was not attractive as it looked out on a hillside.
