I stayed here sporadically for four weeks while working and it was consistently excellent! The service was great, the rooms were always clean, the location is good, the room service efficient and the facilities well maintained and accessible. Connor the breakfast waiter is a great start to the day with a positive attitude and welcoming smile. I would definitely stay... More

From the very first contact with Theo the restaurant manager I was impressed .Theo was wonderful to deal with via phone and email . We were able to book a separate room and every... More

We enjoyed a long weekend at the Bolton Hotel. All of the staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was really nicely furnished and extremely quiet (We were next to the lift & we never heard it, any other guests or city noise). City view was of the back of other buildings so not particularly exciting, so recommend requesting a... More

We stayed here last weekend with friends for a birthday celebration. On checking in we found that somewhere between booking via Expedia and arrival our booking was quite different to what we had originally requested - a 2 bedroom suite. The staff at check in went out of their way to rectify the situation. There were no 2 bedroom suites... More

This is an amazing hotel from check in to check out. It really deserves the #3 ranking. The moment we checked in late at night, Dave Baxter had extended his utmost best hospitality to us. The rooms are spotlessly clean - the kitchen too. Bathrooms are so well equipped with the necessary amnenities one of which is the scented bath... More

Stayed for 4 nights and overall it was quite a comfortable stay, and I can recommend The Bolton - if you take the larger rooms/suites. I say that because while my room was comfortable, my colleague took a smaller room and was not happy at all. The people are nice and friendly and the hotel is well located - at... More

This hotel gets lots of good reviews so I was quite curious about it and looking forward to staying there. However, the rooms are rather tiny, much smaller than what I am used to at other hotels which I found rather surprising since Wellington is not such a large city with high property prices like New York. Overall quality is... More

Centrally located hotel in Wellington. I stayed in a suite which had cooking facilities, a washer/drier for clothes (which was very convenient since I was away from home for a long time), a very nice restaurant with a good choice on the menu. A short walk from the CBD and local attractions such as the cable car and the national... More
