Stayed four nights during a two-week visit to NZ. Truly a 5-Star hotel. Expensive but worth it. The finest furnishings, all modern fixtures, full kitchen, fantastic service and great food. We were here on vacation but it appeared that this is also a great place for business as well. I can't say enough about the service provided by the entire... More

A boutique hotel situated centrally. Very well equipped with every detail thought through for comfort. Luxurious bathroom, separate bedroom and sitting room with a very well equipped and modern kitchenette. Very friendly and efficient staff especially in the restaurant.

I have stayed at The Bolton several times. The level of service is constantly excellent. The facilities are well maintained and spotlessly clean. Wifi is free which is as it should be however many NZ hotels still charge. The Bolton has a location allowing easy accessibility to the waterfront, shopping, botanic gardens, restaurants and for those on business the main... More

I like the way that staff go out of their way to remember guests. As a regular about every six weeks, it's great to have all staff greet you by name. Check in is quick and efficient and there are extra staff at peak times. The rooms are pleasant and I really like that the bed linen is very fine... More

Stayed here for a short business trip and I was impressed by the service, the room and the facilities in the room. Everything you could want and of a very high standard. The staff were very smart in their new uniforms!

We stayed here over Easter 2015 and were heartily impressed by both the hotel and the overwhelming majority of staff with whom we came into contact were utterly great and could not have been more helpful (which made the slightly grumpy waiter on the mezzanine floor all the more surprising) The room was a really good size for our 2...

The Bolton has re-branded recently, and thankfully the service and quality of stay has remained top notch. A last minute booking due to the storms, they made a room available quickly to dry off. And were happy to extend checkout.

Our three night stay en route to the South Island allowed us time in the capital to be comfortable while being able to walk or catch public transport to many attractions such as Te Papa, the Art Gallery and therefore have no concerns with parking. The staff were most helpful while the studio room's kitchen gave us the convenience of... More

The Bolton is an independent hotel which has modern well equipped rooms, an excellent restaurant and staff who seem to be encouraged to allow their own personalities to show through rather than just follow the more standard international hotel lines and greetings. Everyone we encountered from the hotel receptionists and Concierge to the staff in the restaurant at breakfast and... More
