5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Have been staying here monthly for business trips and it's an absolute pleasure. The staff are extremely helpful, the rooms are amazing with quality products, comfortably beds, great pillows, clean bathrooms. The gym and pool are well kept and always a nice treat to use. The only thing I could critique is that the restaurant have a larger menu as... More

I had heard the Bolton was special and maybe it is for Wullington, but really it is nothing out of the ordinary. Pleasant and large suite that we paid extra for, but a bit dated. Location is good. Staff are pleasant, but not out of the ordinary. I would rate as 4 star. They made a mistake with our breakfast... More

My wife and I stayed in the Bolton from 25-27 november on a World Tour with One Week in New Zealand. From the arrival Kathryn [---] was impolite, disgracious +++ "Please speak slow, difficulty to understand you....Answer : You also have a bad accent" Allways very bad that the other staff member would excuse her... The maximum was when She... More

This is a particularly disappointing review. The Bolton Hotel is a smoke free hotel. Kathryn the young lady mentioned in the review is a very experienced and well respected senior member of our front desk team, she deservedly receives many favourable comments from guests for her friendly, outgoing and helpful personality. The situation here is that the guest’s room showed... More

My husband and I chose the Bolton for a two night stay which included a buffet breakfast. At check in we were offered an upgrade at an additional cost for a larger room which included a sitting area. The room was modern and spacious with a good sized galley style kitchen. First impressions was that I felt the room lacked... More

We recently stayed for two nights at the Bolton including a private dinner function held in the hotel suite. We couldn't fault this place particularly the staff, from the warm welcome at reception to the breakfast and dinner staff , all were professional, friendly and helpful and the food was superb. The Bolton is very central so within easy walking... More

I was staying over night for business. Excellent large room with a kitchenette. Very quiet and a comfortable bed. Close to waterfront restaurant strip. IPad alarm clock was a great feature. I would stay here again.

We choose this hotel for a weekend in Wellington and from the time of check in to our late departure the staff were nothing but helpful and attentive. The room was spacious and well appointed but the night we stayed Wellington was experiencing winds in excess of 120 kmph and the corner room we were in was really noisy. There... More

Stayed a whole week here in one of the smaller rooms. The rooms was nice and presentable, came with an iPad of some sort doubling as a clock and had great views of a local park. While I didn't use the exercise facilities this stay, I did have a look around and saw the spa pool, the swimming pool and... More

Overall a nice hotel, but quite corporate and not a lot of soul to the place. Perfect for business but not much more. Our apartment was comfortable and had most of the facilities we needed. It was missing some basic kitchen utensils though (like an oven dish or tin opener). The bed was fairly comfortable too. It wasn't the quietest... More
