We almost enjoyed an overnight stay here. The self catered room was nice and clean which was great. It was very close to the ferry terminal, which is very handy (3 min). The heating system was however very old and difficult to work with. I would never even consider staying there again if they don't change the heating system. The... More

Nothing really bad to say about the hotel but nothing all that great. The rooms are quite comfortable with certain novel amenities but that is all. Service was acceptable but nothing that made me feel welcomed. The windows in my room were filthy - this has been commented on in other reviews and I did not think it could be... More

This a nice self catering hotel. It is very close to the ferry terminal if you need to go to the south island which is a plus for this hotel. It is practically only few minutes to the terminal which was quite handy for the purpose of our trip. The staff were very polite and nice. The hotel was quite... More

We stayed here as we moved due to poor service at a nearby 5 star hotel. This hotel delivered in space and service. It is not overly charming and the bed is so so but good for a work trip and probably good for families due to kitchenette and washing machine.

I use The Bolton often for work, it's handy to the CBD but not right in it, and has consistently good service. The rooms are a good size and well laid out if working from them, good WIFI and desk etc. Room service is good, I even managed a very early delivery of toast one morning when suffering from morning...

Unfortunately i only had one nights stay here but found the hotel to be superb. The room was comfy, good size, great bed and the bathroom was immaculate. The hotel pool was "ok" and useable, as was the spa pool. The staff very friendly as well. Business location but then again wellington is small, so you are "close" to many... More

I stayed at the Bolton Hotel recently just over night. I couldn't speak highly enough of the Service that this Hotel provided from the time we arrived until the time we left. Staff at Reception were delightful and most helpful. Car attended to, bags carried to our room, evening meal served in our room, etc... the entire experience was outstanding... More

Stayed here over the weekend on a get away. Room was clean and well appointed and served it's purpose. One thing to keep in mind is the location is at the end of town near the Beehive and stadium not where the restaurants and entertainment is. Not a bad thing, just something to be aware of if staying over the... More

Had meetings at the New Zealand Parliament and this was the perfect hotel as it is only a four minute walk from the Beehive. I booked a junior suite and this provided all the amenities needed including a washing machine a large refrigerator, iron, ironing board etc., range of teas and coffees. The food is a bit pricey but I... More

We had a lovely stay here - great helpful staff (especially at breakfast), and beautiful comfy rooms. Love the bedspreads and a decent kitchen area. The hotel is right off one of Wellington's main business streets (the Terrace) so great for us when we had to head to work in the morning. Easy walking distance to the waterfront, Parliament, tourist... More
