My daughter and I stayed here for two split nights. This was luxury for us. Two rooms - bedroom with two queen beds and a lounge/dining/kitchen. Everything was spotless and well-maintained. The staff we came in contact with were friendly and helpful. We intended to use the coffee lounge on the second night but there was a Wedding booked in... More

The Bolton offered good rooms & service for our recent business meeting, we required space for 15-30 people with good ability to hear speakers in an open forum. Good service & parking facilities close by with easy access from the Wellington region for attendees. 0

Being tucked away in a quirky location adds to the sense of relaxation a guest experiences upon entering the Bolton. This hotel prides itself on high standards which it attains through attention to detail and exceptional service.

Having stayed at most of the 4/5 star hotels in Wellington, I will only be returning here. From assisting us out of the Taxi, to letting us check in 3 hours early.

Nice room with a lovely view despite the obvious proximity to the motorway Wish we had been told when we made our phone reservation that the pool and gym were being renovated.

Thank you for the review kiwibear, Our apologies regarding the pool as it is one of the real features of the hotel and ideally it is never nice to shut it down. In this case the maintenance of the area was paramount and with anything involving so much water the job went on slightly over time. I am glad the... More

Lovely hotel, quiet rooms with good facilities. We were treated to a bottle of champagne for our joing big birthdays. The restaurant for breakfast was fabulous - lovely choices; art work around the restaurant with art books. A good location to walk down to the waterfront and into the main hub of Wellington.

We stayed just one night at The Bolton and it was perfectly fine. Location is by the Parliamentary Buildings so is a bit of a walk to the shopping and food districts. The hotel itself is nicely appointed and quiet. We had a one bedroom apartment and it was spacious and comfortable - although the view from the 10th floor... More
