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

We stayed at the Bolton Hotel while on vacation. The staff were absolutely amazing and went out of there way to make our stay stress free .The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Beds were so comfy. I could not fault it and would highly recommend staying there .

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

We had booked another hotel in wellington and left after 1 hour(it was terrible) and came to the Bolton instead at 10:30pm. The weekend night manager Dave Baxter was amazing and sorted us out. This was our anniversary and staying here made our weekend. The service and quality of this hotel was amazing. We had the breakfast included and the... More

Nice enough hotel but nothing spectacular. Service on check in was kind of indifferent, even when we mentioned we were on our honeymoon. No congratulations... I don't expect to be swooned over but some acknowledgment would have been nice! Room was fine. Very clean. No bathtub but assume that was because of the room type I booked. The hotel gym... More

We almost enjoyed an overnight stay here. The self catered room was nice and clean which was great. It was very close to the ferry terminal, which is very handy (3 min). The heating system was however very old and difficult to work with. I would never even consider staying there again if they don't change the heating system. The... More

Nothing really bad to say about the hotel but nothing all that great. The rooms are quite comfortable with certain novel amenities but that is all. Service was acceptable but nothing that made me feel welcomed. The windows in my room were filthy - this has been commented on in other reviews and I did not think it could be... More

This a nice self catering hotel. It is very close to the ferry terminal if you need to go to the south island which is a plus for this hotel. It is practically only few minutes to the terminal which was quite handy for the purpose of our trip. The staff were very polite and nice. The hotel was quite... More

We stayed here as we moved due to poor service at a nearby 5 star hotel. This hotel delivered in space and service. It is not overly charming and the bed is so so but good for a work trip and probably good for families due to kitchenette and washing machine.

I use The Bolton often for work, it's handy to the CBD but not right in it, and has consistently good service. The rooms are a good size and well laid out if working from them, good WIFI and desk etc. Room service is good, I even managed a very early delivery of toast one morning when suffering from morning...
