Stayed here 4 nights in October. Wonderfully comfortable apartment, good breakfast and helpful staff. Easy walking to all the good restaurants in Wellington. Used their car stacker which was very convenient and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

I have stayed at this hotel several times, however was disappointed and somewhat annoyed to be charged a credit card fee of 2%. If I had paid Expedia a few days in advance I would not have incurred this fee! In all other aspects a very satisfactory one night stay.

We arrived late at night & received a warm greeting from the charming night duty staff member (Matthew) who made the check in process a breeze despite the late hour. Our breakfast the next morning was also made much more enjoyable due to the friendliness of the staff on duty. We would certainly stay here again and highly rate this... More

We stayed in the Bolton Hotel for a few nights in Wellington. The location was a bit north of the CBD, but Wellington is pretty small and we were able to walk across town in about 25 minutes. The Beehive building was less than five minutes away and TSB Arena was about a 15 minutes away. The staff was very... More

A group of 8 of us stayed this weekend in the 2 bedroom units which are situated on the west corner with good views. Interesting watching the construction crew hard at work on the building next door. The room was well appointed with a master bed with an ensuite and a separate bathroom/toilet for the second bedroom. There is also... More

My husband and I stayed for one night and found the hotel comfortable and quiet, although we were overlooking an historic reserve in a side street and I did notice that there was some building work going on around the front of the hotel. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the breakfast buffet very nice. Would stay there again... More

We have stayed here several times when we need to be in Wellington for family events. We book a two bedroom corner suite which is great for Mum Dad and the kids ( even though ours are now in their twenties). The location just off the terrace is excellent and we can just walk to Lambton Quay and often walk... More

I really appreciated reading your review and favourable comments. The 2% charge for credit cards is set to recover the cost credit card providers charge. It is not appropriate to amortise this expenses across all hotel guests as most of our regular guests have alternative payment arrangements. The credit card user also receives benefits from the card provider. We also... More

This time we stayed in a premium studio which was only on the second floor near the elevators for two nights for the rugby, it was an ok room it... More
