Bolton Hotel Wellington
Ranked #3 of 46 Hotels in Wellington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is a great hotel to staying in if you're going to Wellington. It ticked all the 5 star boxes and more, from us arriving and having the car valet store the car in the new stacker car park built into the hotel, to the superb spa that is included as part of your normal room booking. We stayed in a suite, which is worth the extra money as it has 3 large rooms, including a state of the art bathroom, washer, dryer, dishwasher, cooker and microwave. There's a flat screen TV in both rooms and the views from the hotel are excellent. We used the spa (which includes a heated pool, good sized gym, sauna and jacuzzi). Towels, robes, water and slippers are also provided. The staff at the Bolton know how to deliver 5-star service. Nothing was too much trouble. We ordered room service, which came within 20 mins and was delicious and they can access your car within about 30 seconds by entering your cars code into a pad in the hotel foyer. The car then appears and is put into a covered area for you to use before it gets stored again. Really impressive hotel, in a great area (at side of the botanical garden). Highly recommended if you're looking for 5-star and excellent value for money.

This was my favourite hotel in NZ. It was really new, and the rooms very spacious. It was a quiet hotel and the staff very helpful. The pool/spa/sauna and gym were also really good.

Highly recommend this place!

We picked up mystery deal from wotif. Hotel was really nice and room was spacious we also got upgraded. It was a bit far from the action for us on a weekend visit that said the walk was worth the great bed.

In transit there was only time for a 6 hour overnight stay. Therefore consistency in a hotel is always appreciated. The Bolton provides this and a little haven of calm to return to, at the end of the day.
Superb bed provided a quality sleep in a super clean room, which was cosy. As it was only for one person there was ample room. The small touches for the comfort of guests in the room are appreciated and service is prompt and efficient.
The location provides access to small streets nearby with interesting eat locations to explore and sample.
The Bolton is number 1 on the dial for my colleagues and myself when visiting Wellington.

My partner and I stayed here last year, we got a special deal for the night from wotif.com and found it very good value, especially the breakfast, which is the BEST hotel breakfast we both had ever had. Better than the local restaurants and cafes by far. Loved that we could order off menu and use the buffet as well, very high quality food. They even had feijoa juice!!! When next in Wellington would definitely stay here. Staff very friendly. Room lovely. Highly recommend. Note. we parked in the carpark next door for only $3, rather than using hotel parking which from memory was a lot more?

We really enjoyed the apts. It was nicely furnished with nice views of the city and park. The kitchen is well equipped and there are nice modern bathrooms. The hotel also has free wifi. The only drawback was the second bedroom was very small with very little room for your luggage. The staff was very accomodating; we had arrived before checkin time and they offered complimentary drinks while we waited for our room to be ready.
