We were meeting up with another couple in Wellington and decided to meet/stay at the Bolton Hotel. The stay didn’t get off to the best start with a difficult check in with the receptionist being particularly unhelpful. The staff at breakfast were miserable and it seemed an effort to serve us. We came back to the hotel at 10pm on the Saturday and was told we couldn’t get a drink so we had to go elsewhere, on returning was told we could get a drink after all as we were staying there!! Check out was chaotic with not enough staff on. The rooms were nice enough but because of staff would not recommend or stay again
