Things to do

Explore Wellington

Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand, has a CBD hemmed in by steep hillsides which surround a stunning harbour, the hills and valleys dotted with Victorian villas in what the Lonely Planet described as “an almost San Franciscan manner”. More recently Wellington has become firmly established as the film capital of NZ, earning itself both the nickname “Wellywood” and much praise from the industry big hitters and famous actors, who have been proud during filming to temporarily call Wellington home.

The CityLife Wellington, set in the CBD and only blocks from the waterfront, is ideally located to access restaurants, shops and businesses, and activities, both around the waterfront and those arranged around the surrounding hills. Staying in this Wellington CBD hotel makes getting to the Interislander or Bluebridge Ferry- the link to the wonders of the South Island –a breeze, but it’s worth adding extra nights whatever the aim of your visit is, as there is a host of rewarding Wellington activities within easy reach of the hotel.

Culture

Wellington prides itself on being not only the country’s capital, but also its cultural capital. CityLife Wellington, set in the CBD and only blocks from the waterfront, is ideally located to access restaurants, shops and businesses, and activities, both around the waterfront and those arranged around the surrounding hills.
