Most hotels in Wellington have the same kind of layout at their reception, but that's the first difference I noticed when arriving at the Bolton late on a Wednesday evening. It's not traditionally styled, more like a swanky premium lounge at an international airport. For 5 stars I expected all the extras in the room and wasn't disappointed and the... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a Premiere Suite and from the moment we stepped through the door we definitely felt special. The service is unsurpassed and very sophisticated right down to the smallest detail. The price is at the top end of what we have paid for accommodation previously but what you get is well worth it. The service... More

Returned to The Bolton for a second time in 2015, as thought it was great and I had received such excellent service on my first stay. Good location for visiting some of the sights in Wellington - although the city is very walkable anyway, so you never feel too far from where you're heading. The Bolton is very convenient for...

A nice little home away from home in Wellington (an amazing and underrated city to visit by the way!). The staff here were all super friendly and helpful, from the check-in at 1am (when a smiling and friendly face was very much appreciated!) until we left to go to the airport a few days later. The food in the restaurant... More

From arrival to departing, a treat. Service was exemplary, friendly, helpful and precise. The concierge even remembered who had which luggage in our party by sight and allocated to our rooms by person - nice touch. We rented a two bedroom apartment, it was clean, beds providing an amazing nights sleep. Internet was very slow, like most internet in Wellington... More

we have stayed at the BOLTON hotel twice now and will stay again.. Our recent stay was booked a month ago and then our circumstances changed on the day and we needed to upgrade to a larger room. This was no problem and handled very efficiently - the 1 bdr suite was well equipped spacious and very comfortable.. The person... More

A single overnight stay whilst working locally. A nice welcoming check in at the end of a long day and a spacious well lit room made for a comfortable evening. A firm bed gave a good night's sleep; and a nice selection on the breakfast buffet set me up for the working day.

My sister and I were traveling in New Zealand on vacation and stayed in the Bolton Hotel a few nights into our tour on the North Island. We arrived at the Bolton hotel after a very long drive from the Northern part of the island. We were checked in promptly and bags delivered to the room almost immediately. The room... More
