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. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, and attentive to our needs. The room ( twin queen) with living area was excellent, and could not have asked for... More

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. However, when we arrived we were pleasantly greeted by Matt who was so lovely. He understood our dissappointment but helped us feel happy about what the hotel had... 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

I stayed here for two weeks. First week I had a one bedroom suite, which was massive. Second week was a more standard studio room. Both were nicely finished off. Nice touch includes a plunger and free coffee grounds! Location is close to the main business area. Bit of a long walk or small cab ride to the main eating... More

Service and staff were great thanks. Room felt a bit shabby with a floppy shower nozzle, peeling paint in the bathroom and just feeling a bit 'tired'. Heating was broken and we froze for a while but this was addressed quickly when we asked for help. Breakfast was definitely in the take it or leave it category and if we... More

Very enjoyable stay in Wellington. This hotel was close to every activity we wanted to do and the staff was wonderful. We ended up going to a couple breweries recommended by the staff and it was very enjoyable! Breakfast at the hotel was also good.

The service shone out at the Bolton. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and very professional. Our bags were promptly taken to our room, which was cosy, clean and nicely presented. The bed was comfy and room facilities exceeded our expectations. Well done "Bolten".

Staff...perfect and it was a horrible day weather wise and The Super Rugby final Wife and I took risk and sent ourselves to Wellington with no guarantee of tickets to the final. We were not disappointed. Check in smooth and pleasant. Room very good for what we paid. Smaller but well appointed and all the fruit you'd expect from way... More
