“Excellent every time”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Stayed at the hotel numerous times now for work trips, as you can always be sure of good service. A handy walk to Parliament and close to the train station. Rooms are a good size, everything you need in the room, very clean, comfortable bed. Breakfast had a good variety, although replenishment of food was a little slow. Would definitely recommend a stay at the Bolton.

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.
