We chose the Bolton based on its position as No 1 in Wellington on Trip Advisor and certainly weren't disappointed.

The hotel is very modern with a small yet friendly lobby. Our room was a studio with full kitchen facilities. Everything in the room was brilliant even having top quality appliances and an extremely comfortable bed.

Bear in mind the location of the Hotel is at the Parliament end of town so if you're planning on getting around on feet it can be quite a walk to places such as Te Papa or Cuba street. Small sacrafice however and the one time we needed a taxi back to the Hotel from Cuba street it only cost $10.

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.
