“Quiet Room”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom suite on 10th floor. Very quiet, great shower, had a full kitchen and washer/dryer in our room. Service was very good. Very close to Stadium and Beehive. Only complaint was there was no USB port in TV or DVD player so my daughter couldn't watch the movies she took with her, but the Hotel did have a free DVD collection to chose from and pay for view movies $15 each. Pool and spa looked nice and husband liked the Gym.

Room Tip: Free WiFi, no USB port in TV or DVD player

Thank you for your review and favourable comments, very much appreciated. I apologise for the lack of a USB connection, a good number of out TV sets have this, but not all, this is a matter we are currently addressing.

The Bolton is newer, well kept and convenient. Not far from the Ferry (less than 5 min drive) or the airport (less than 10 min). The Staff are terrific and highly concern for your complete satisfaction.
Dave at the front desk made sure I didn't miss my departure time for the ferry.
I loved the convenience of the
IN ROOM WASHER/DRYER with complimentary soap. Easy to use and very handy.

We stayed here for a short layover heading from the North island to the South the next morning. It was priced competitively for the area, although we did find the price slightly higher here. The valet parking was a nice touch.
We were given a complimentary upgrade to a suite, beautiful room. Comfy bed. Very clean. All wine and food was clearly labeled with prices.
The bathtub "door"-the glass piece along 1/4 of the tub-was useless and with a shower did nothing to stop the water from making a huge mess in the bathroom-logic?
Front reception were very helpful with giving us eating suggestions (try Chow.....Best meal in a long time!) and places to visit for our few hours in the evening.
Free unlimited wifi.
Nice place, not much to look at out your window, but really who cares?
Would definitely recommend.

We stayed here for 2 nights in February in a Classic suite and were delighted with our accommodation. We had a very large lounge/diner with a fully fitted kitchen with coffee, tea and milk provided. The kitchen equipment included a small dishwasher and full laundry facilities with soap powder provided. The bedroom was of a good size and very comfortable and the bathroom was also very spacious. Even better full breakfast was included. The hotel is modern and the general decor very pleasing.

The hotel is very centrally located and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. My only criticism would be that the car parking is rather expensive, but does include valet parking. All in all an ideal place to stay when in Wellington.

Room Tip: The classic suites are excellent and good value.

This was my second visit to Wellington and my second stay here. Whilst the rooms are great what made the Bolton stand out is that the service was impeccable. If I have one fault it is that the café struggles to meet the morning demand for a take away coffee.

This is a pleasant, upscale boutique hotel located in the hear of Wellington. We stayed overnight here on our way to the Marlborough Sounds area / Picton.

Pros:
- Excellent location.
- Clean and modern facilities / rooms.
- Friendly, helpful staff.
- Good recommendations for local restaurants.

Cons:
- The queen bed room we stayed in was tiny / cramped.
- Like too many other hotels, they need to clean the exhaust fan cover in the bathroom ;-)

Very good hotel - got the tip from trip advisor
Realitively new building,
Car access a bit trickly and needs some patience
Otherwise, everything about the hotel was ideal.
Restaurant was good - menu OK, service good
I used the pool for a short time - facilities good.
We used two different types of rooms - a one bedroom at the beginning of the trip and a sudio at the end - both ideal
We used the hotel for our rest days during our holiday tour between islands

Room Tip: Choose a room at the end of the corridor
