We unexpectedly stayed at the Bolton Hotel when we were evacuated from a nearby hotel due to a fire. The staff were magnificent in coping with this unexpected influx of extras. Repeatedly asking if they could do anything else for us. They also provided us with free coffee and tea. The room we stayed in had all we could wish...

Stayed here on our recent trip around NZ, it was not long after the big earthquake and Wellington was still experiencing after shocks. The hotel was modern, clean, and the staff very helpful. On check out on our way to an early interferry crossing, the manger asked us if we were ok after the aftershock that had occurred during the...

We spent 3 nights here. Wellington had only just survived a devastating earthquake, so in general the City was in a state of disruption. This did not affect our stay here though. The Suite we enjoyed had full kitchen, laundry and separate bedroom. The beds were extremely comfortable. The lounge area was comfortable and spacious. The staff were professional and...

We had a great experience staying at the Bolton Hotel. We had one of the Premier Suites, which was very spacious and included a large kitchen and separate living area. The room had an iPad that can be used to request services, and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Wifi was included and worked well. The hotel is conveniently...

Thank you for your review Anthony, Glad you liked the iPad in the room - something we are constantly working on to improve the in room experience. Part of ensuring it all works well is our new dedicated 250GB wifi. An upgrade from 50GB just to ensure our guests stay connected. The dryer/washer does take a bit of experience to...

I stayed in a suite with full kitchen facilities, lounge/dining area and separate bedroom. From the moment I arrived I found every single staff member friendly and helpful. A lot of 5 star hotels tend to have programmed staff with no personality. I felt very at home here and will always stay at The Bolton when visiting Wellington. The room...

Thank you for your review Inverness1966, We program our staff to not be programmed. We take the stance that once you learn our systems we want our people to be pleasant and engaging to do what we are all here for - to enjoy the company of others. So I am very glad this came across and it is a...

Thank you for your comments Sue K, Again, our staff keep getting the comments they deserve - very pleasing to hear.
