We stayed in a 2 Bedroom suite for 2 nights and found this hotel excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The manager in particular was excellent and was very happy to talk with us as we waited for a very early taxi on departure. He obviously leads by example! The rooms were well... More

We stayed two nights in August, in a 2-bedroom suite. It was great. A 5-star experience. Spacious rooms with very nice furniture and complete kitchen equipment. Service was impeccable. The amazingly competent hotel manager, who personally helped us with the luggage, is the real secret for this great hotel. Highly recommended! The restaurant was great for dinner and above average...

We had a wonderful stay at Bolton and we were especially impressed by the lovely staff who made our stay so special.

We are so touched by the level of service... More

We got a Grab One deal for the Bolton Hotel never having stayed here before. It was exceptional value, the service was excellent, the room was spacious and well equipped and we were offered a late checkout and complimentary buffet breakfast. It couldn't be faulted. I would have liked to have been offered car parking as standard, there is a... More

I booked the Bolton Hotel primarily because of free wifi and central location. We arrived late at night (11:30pm); the staff were courteous and helpful, and the room assigned was called a "Premier Suite" with two queen beds (we were travelling with one of our best friends, so it was a well-priced option). Service was generally excellent throughout our stay... More

This hotel was booked for me, so I had no idea what to expect. My 3 business companions and I were all impressed. The lobby was nothing special, but unlike some other reviews I found the staff to be quite friendly. The room was a big surprise. I was only in town for two nights, but the room was well... More
