Awesome hotel with every traveler need thought out--including small washing machine in the kitchen. Clean, modern, beautiful in a great location with a very helpful staff! Cheers to Kelly at the front desk--she was great!

Really modern and tastefully done as well as calm with a good restaurant in house (Artisan) and professional service in all ways. The room I had was large and spacious and well equipped. Loved the wet room bathroom. The room was also well stocked with different teas and coffee and a comprehensive mini bar with snacks and other products for...

The Bolton is a largish "boutique" hotel, well located just above The Terrace at the edge of the CBD. It is a lovely hotel with a very good breakfast buffet, the sole reservation being that the only eggs are buffet scrambled. The dinner menu is world class at affordable prices. A must-experience. My "room" was a mini-suite, with a nicely...

I was delighted to read your five star review, thank you for your comments. While I agree, we only offer scrambled on our breakfast buffet, our breakfast team are always pleased to cook your eggs just the way you like them. I will have a look at how this is presented.

Great central location with super friendly staff. One really feels taken care of. We had a very pleasant stay, spending time unwinding in the pool. The restaurant was excellent. This is certainly a hotel we recommend to all.

We stayed for 4 nights as a family, had a 2 bedroom suite. Used the valet parking. Staff were friendly. Pool was on the cold side. A bit of wear and tear starting to show, but cleanliness was very good. Hotel is close to the Beehive. Had a washer/dryer in the room; the dryer wasn't really drying, so they dried...

Thank you for your review, I very much appreciated your comments. I have noted that the pool water temperature was on the cold side and the in-room washing machine did not fully dry your washing. At our weekly maintenance meeting it was reported that a couple of washing machines were not functioning correctly. We are attending to this and also...

We took our grandson to Wellington for his birthday. Super staff made a great fuss of him and left a birthday card and sweets for him in our room. The staff were really friendly and nothing was a problem . Rooms were great too. Will definitely return. Highly recommend.

Well located hotel just down the road from parliament. Smack in the middle of town. Valet service was a plus as parking around the area is a nightmare. Room was adequate with separate bedroom. Well stocked kitchen including pots and pans. Washer dryer which we also used. Very handy. Staff very courteous. Very busy hotel. Lobby used for business meetings...

This is a lovely, comfortable, well-run hotel and a pleasure to have visited. The location is just a short walk from the train station and also Queen's Wharf where so much of the action is. The service was excellent and professional, save for an argumentative waitress at the Bar who contradicted my husband when he said his wine was corked....

Dear Samantha I really appreciated reading your comments and thank you for your excellent review. I apologise for our waitress's comment regarding "corked" wine. It was clear the wine was not right and we replaced the bottle. However like most NZ wines, the wine was a "screw top" bottle. Warwick Angus

Needed a hotel for one night before getting on ferry next morning. The Bolton staff were great and friendly, very helpful. Location was also perfect, right downtown. Room was a little cramped (European style), but was very clean and did the job.
