Have stayed at the Bolton several times (both on business and holiday). It's a great location, just off The Terrace, so fairly quiet, but only 2-mins walk from shops and restaurants. It's definitely not cheap, but you can often pick up a reasonably priced deal. The king size beds are excellent, try to stretch to a 1-bedroom suite if you... More

The Bolton Hotel has a good reputation in Wellington. It is in an excellent spot near the main attractions of the central city. You can walk up the (very steep) hill to the cable car and the Botanical Gardens, or down the hill to Parliament buildings, courts, libraries, restaurants and shops. A slightly longer walk gets you to Te Papa... More

We were several weeks into our New Zealand trip when we arrived at the Bolton and were at the beginning stages of "vacation weariness" which I'm sure all frequent or lengthy stay vacationers can relate to. The Bolton recharged our batteries! This is a great hotel in a great location in Wellington NZ. It is centrally located but enough off... More

We stayed here three nights as our last stop in touring North Island. Pleasantly surprised and pleased to be upgraded to a two bedroomed corner apartment : we had reserved a one bedroomed suite which I'm sure would have sufficed but we enjoyed the extra space as it meant my husband and I could have a shower room each! Very... More

Very fine multi-story hotel in the heart of Wellington’s CBD. Within walking distance (1.5k) of the Central Train Station and a short taxi ride to the InterIslander Ferry Terminal. The Bolton is characterised by friendly, helpful staff, genuinely fast wifi (with direct connect ethernet also available) and comfortable, clean rooms. The location is within easy walking distance of Lambton Quay,... More

Check-in was quick and easy. Customer service was exceptional. Room was very clean, neat and tidy. Quality TV with lots of channels to choose from. Wi-Fi speeds brilliant for me to do my work and best of all hardly heard any ruckus outside of room. Only about $NZ25 taxi ride to hotel. Close to city centre, waterfront and plethora of... More

We stayed for one night after flying in from Sydney. Great place, rooms were nice, facilities were great and the staff were really friendly. The hotel is conveniently located near the main city hub. The only reason I didn't give this place 5 stars was because the breakfast was average and we had some problems with our rooms keys which... More

An excellent weekend stay with friends in a two bedroom apartment on the 15th floor was made even more pleasant by the wonderful staff in this excellent hotel. Honestly we would all stay here again as it made our time in Wellington so special. On the Friday night we went to a degustation meal organised and hosted by Theo who... More
