We had an awesome 3 night stay at the Bolton! Service was great, room with everything you could need and a great location on the Terrace. Would come back anytime and recommend to any of our friends. Definite must stay.

The hotel is centrally located and reception has been updated over summer. I stayed in room 207 which was a good size with 2 lounge chairs and a new tv. The beds and pillows are comfy and the room was mostly quiet except for a truck. Breakfast was good and tasty and most importantly on time! Staff are helpful with... More

Really nice hotel. We had a spacious suite with unlimited free wi-fi, washing machine, and two large high definition TVs. The staff were welcoming and helpful. We had a problem in that we couldn't get into our room one evening. The electronic card wouldn't open the door, and the staff on duty couldn't get in either. It had probably never... More

We stayed in a premium room 1505 which provides all one needs for a comfortable stay with self catering facilities if required. It is centrally located for all the shopping and tourism needs. We ate in the restaurant which was a mistake. The menu was limited so we only had a main course. I had Ribeye Steak which was lovely... More

Stayed at the Bolton Hotel as booked by a client. From the moment I arrived the service and accommodation was faultless. I was booked into the classic suite - very spacious with TV in main room as well as bedroom. Full kitchen and also minibar. For this stay I ordered room service which was prompt and tasty. I did find... More

Very mixed feelings about this place The front of house staff are very good, albeit lacking a mature looking person, for they quickly sorted our original room which had not been serviced, upgraded us to a room with a bath and all was well.... but I do wonder about the house keepers reporting The room was expansive and clean Bed...

We stayed the night before getting the Interislander Ferry to the south island. The hotel was easy to find after getting good directions from the Ferry Terminal. When we pulled up in the car the staff removed all the bags & parked the car. It's the 1st time I've seen a car going in a lift ( valet parking well... More

I stayed at the Bolton for 2 nights during my business trip to Wellington. Have heard lots of great things about the Bolton so was very excited to stay. Overall, a great hotel with extremely friendly staff and the most incredible bed + pillow! However, am only able to rate it "average" as had trouble getting good sleep in both... More

Wellington was busy so we ended staying in a suite at the Bolton rather than our prefered option- a small boutique hotel. We were not disappointed, the room was large and well equipped, with a compact kitchen area and a spacious seaing/eating area. The bed was extremely comfortable and I had my pillows changed on request. The bathroom had a... More
