A well-equipped hotel in a central location”

Comfortable, big spacious rooms with separate living area and kitchen, friendly and helpful staff

We had a fantastic stay at the Bolton Hotel in Wellington and wished we had been able to stay longer. I would definitely recommend this hotel , especially to families with children as the rooms were big with a large bedroom which had a separate bathroom, living area, and kitchen. The kitchen was fully equipped and even had a washer/dryer machine! The hotel was centrally located and we were able to leave our car in 'valet parking' at the hotel and walk around Wellington for the 2 days we were there. Everything that we wanted to do was within walking distance (the cable car up to the botanical gardens - which incidentally has a fantastic children's adventure playground area; the waterfront area with bars and cafes; the Te Papa museum; Lambton Quarter shopping area). The staff at the hotel were very friendly and happy to offer advice about things to do etc. We ate in the restaurant at the hotel on our first night and although they did not have a children's menu, the chef was able to whip up a more child-friendly meal for our children.

Location.Staff. Room

Our stay at the Bolton Hotel was superb. From the moment we walked in the staff were brilliantly responsive and attentive. I had broken my tablet computer whilst travelling and was loaned a hotel version (no charge) and it was all set up within 10 mins of checking into our room. The room was a great size; cleaniness was excellent and the hotel was easy to find (we drove to Wellington) and parking was a breeze. Excellent location for Wellington sightseeing.

Very impressive hotel with great service”

King size bed, very quiet, very clean, great staff, excellent food for in room dining

Thank you to the Bolton Hotel. My stay was very pleasurable indeed. Having stayed in many New Zealand hotels recently both in Auckland and Wellington, I believe that the Bolton is a must stay for service, cleanliness, in room dining quality and all the things that a business traveller requires. eg. block out curtains, great heating, all amenities in room, eg. microwave, plunger coffee. I will definitely return. Thank you again

Excellent comfort”

Location, comfort and quality

Very good. Location is handy to Lambton quay, railway station and buses. Easy to walk to most places for dining or catch a bus. The staff were very friendly and I was impressed that each day milk, tea and coffee were replaced. A lot of hotels around the world do not replace. Also impressed wifi was free in the hotel. I travel a lot and have got used to free wifi. Returning home to Wellington for a holiday I was appalled at how few hotels provided guests free wifi. This should be par for the course. Well done the Bolton for this. Price was expensive compared to SE Asia, but the so was all of Wellington. On the positive, what you got for the price was excellent. Deluxe studio was a brilliant size with great amenities for the week we stayed.

We stayed in a two-room apartment at the Bolton and loved every minute of it. The rooms were generous and modern and the staff is incredible -- truly among the best hotel experiences we have ever had. Will definitely return next time we travel to Wellington.
