Bolton Hotel Wellington
Ranked #3 of 47 Hotels in Wellington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 8, 2009

Our recent stay here was in most respects, of the highest quality. We were upgraded on arrival to a two bedroom suite, which proved to be excellent.

Our views were of other buildings - but hardly surprising in a city centre hotel.

We did have a heart stopping moment when our hire car was being retrieved by the valet ,as it turned into the hotel with some serious damage that was new. The hotel driver was not at fault and the staff arranged a complimentary taxi for our evening in Upper Hutt; they also put in train the replacement car and that duly arrived the following morning. No hassle, just cool calm and efficient.

We dined in one evening, and found something of a weak spot here. The food was fine (although a bit pricey) but the service was rather too casual. Fine dining should be accompanied by fine service - in our view nothing else suffices. I think that it is also the view of the Michelin Red Guide.

Our time here was relatively brief but it was a very worthwhile stay.

Good value for money
The Bolton hotel offers good value for money. Above the unassuming lobby towers an excellent hotel with spacious rooms and perfect amenities. The staff is friendly and helpful. The smallish restaurant is excellent.
The hotel lies a few blocks away from the city centre with many good shops, within easy walking distance.

We stayed here for 2 nights before going accross to the South Island on our travels.We got given a free upgrade and had a room with a separate bedroom , living room / kitchen and bathroom.Rooms are very nice with really comfortable beds and 2 LCD TV'sin the different rooms ! Its about a 5 min walk from here to the water front or 5 mins to the shopping area.They have a nice sized gym compared to most hotels and a good pool. Free internet access in the business area of the hotel also , only thing i would not do again is have room service as the portions are very small and dont represent good value - otherwise would recommend staying here - good hotel.

Great location, reasonable price, fabulous rooms. We looked at both the one and two bedroom rooms but the one bedroom had everything we needed and more. The kitchen was fully furnished and the room also had a dining and lounge area.
The main town area with shops, cafes and restaurants is right on its doorstep and we were able to walk from the Botanical gardens directly back to the hotel. The ferry port for south island was only a 5 minute drive. Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

We had booked a studio room but were upgraded to a one bedded unit which gave us a some extra space for the three nights we were there.

This was a very comfortable, well-equipped hotel / apartment, a bit of luxury.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and there was free use of the internet in the reception.

Good location a few minutes from the Parliament Building and bit longer to the centre.

The Bolton Hotel is a great hotel to stay in! We booked a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with a kitchen & it was very comfortable.

Each bedroom was large & included a large robe & 42 inch LCD screen. One bedroom had a generous full ensuite. The bed was incredibly comfortable.

The hotel conceirge was very helpful & we enjoyed making use of the swimming pool & spa.

Very good value for money!
