Great premier 1 bed suite Hotel pool and spa area very quiet We had some issues with our room but they were dealt with very quickly and were things that just break with use, so no issue whatsoever Very close to the botanical gardens Very close to cable car Easy walking distance to the beachfront

Ideal place to stay if you are on business or travelling through New Zealand. The suites have small kitchens which include a washing machine so ideal for catching up on domestic life whilst travelling. Really well appointed and the staff were great friendly and helpful

We had a one bedroomed suite with a great view. Each room was very well appointed and clean. We also had a lovely surprise in our room on arrival! We used room service a couple of times and had breakfast on our last morning all of which were great with excellent service.

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon, during our stop in Wellington. The room was very neat and tidy and perfectly sized for us and our stay. We had a sleep-and-go accomodations, which was a smaller room (though it suited us perfectly) that included breakfast. The breakfast was amazing! The staff were very attentive and helpful. We will...

I spent several nights at the Bolton Hotel in October of 2015. I was very impressed with the hotel in general, its location and facilities. My room was spacious, the hotel staff friendly and diligent. The swimming pool, spa and sauna were fantastic, some of the best facilities I have seen at a hotel to date. The hotel's boutique style...

I travel to Wellington on business quite a bit. I recently started staying at the Bolton and have been very impressed. The room is very spacious which is very nice since I am usually here for 3-4 nights. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchenette is very nice to have for making breakfast in the morning. The hotel is... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Bolton as a family of four. Each time we have been made to feel very comfortable and welcome as a family despite not being in the majority of clientele. We arrived on the first flight from Auckland on a Saturday morning and despite the room not being read the hotel... More

We decided to upgrade from our normal level of accommodation and are glad we chose the Bolton. The room was well appointed, the views were nice, the room service food (top sirloin) was yummy, and the staff was quite professional. The only drawback was the wi-fi. The staff responded quickly to our calls, but there was something in the hardware... More

We only had an overnight stay so only booked the basic room. It was small but it was very clean with ensuite shower room which was adequate for the short stay. Mini bar well equipped and good selection of toiletries and bathrobes and slippers. Only problem was lack of wardrobe space and there were no drawers to put anything into.... More

Stayed here for one night. Impeccable service. Nice rooms, good location. I was travelling on my honeymoon and the desk staff were thoughtful and kind in giving us a bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate the occasion along with a very nice note. Would definitely go back.
