Stayed at this hotel before our ferry ride to the South Island. It's not in the city center - a little off the beaten path but a 10 - 15 minute walk to a big shopping district and restaurants. The rooms were also roomy and so was the bathroom. Also had a nice sitting area in front of the TV.... More

We had a good check in experience. Parking is valet only but handled well. We stayed in a "go room" with just a bed and a bath as opposed to kitchenette or suites. Room was comfortable and clean. Fitness center opens at 5 am and was clean and compact but good equipment and some weights. About a mile walk to... More

Wonderful hotel and great features and rooms but I was disappointed when the staff told me one thing about rooms and rates but management did not support them once it came to checkout. Would not have been an issue but I asked about the rate once; was told it would be changed and left it at that. The staff then... More

Thank you for your comments, especially highlighting our wonderful hotel, features, and rooms. We would like to take the time to clarify to you and readers a couple of points we think you may be missing.

I really liked the independently-owned Bolton Hotel. It's in a great location and has everything you want from modern accommodation at a reasonable price. My room (small but well designed) was spotless, well maintained with a comfortable bed and up to date technology including an iPod mini and free wifi-fi. . Staff were friendly and professional, the lobby cafe reasonably... More

We are Kiwis from the South Island, we brought family from France to see the show "Singing in the Rain" part of our special trip was to stay at a really nice hotel. We thought The Bolton would fit the bill. The front of house staff were welcoming and very helpful, they could not have done more. The two bedroomed... More

We stayed a week at the Bolton, although on Holiday and not on business. It is centrally located, close to all government buildings. It is very clean and functional and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The suites are functional, although on the small side. This is our second stay here and we will return again.

I last stayed at the Bolton Hotel, about a year ago. The lobby has recently been refurbished which makes the welcome that even more grand, I checked in a little bit earlier than 3pm but that was no worries, as of course this is the Bolton, not some large chain hotel! I felt as though the staff member checking me... More

Staff vey friendly and helpful from unloading the car to reception and getting all our luggage up to our well-appointed suite. The suite itself was comfortable and practical with a nice sitting area, a handy kitchen and best of all a washer/dryer - I think it was on all night! Dinner in the hotel restaurant was excellent and served in... More

The Bolton is a nice hotel in a good location with good service and well appointed rooms. We had a one bedroom suite with a washer dryer so were able to get our wash sorted out. Breakfast was very good with many options and eggs cooked to order or anything else for that matter. I would certainly stay here again.
