We spent our last night of our honeymoon at this hotel and we were delighted with it. We stayed in a suite room on one of the top floors- the city view from the huge windows was fantastic and there was a bottle of sparkling wine waiting for us in the room when we arrived. This was such a lovely...

We reach the hotel by car, we didn't receive any help with our luggage. No problem, it can happen. The room was terribly cold, aircon was on even if outside temp was 17c. We turned it into heating mode. It worked for some time than it started to blow cold air.. It was late evening we called and a kind...

we have bee upgraded to a junior suite. Newly renovated and very high floor. Even if it has been for a night only we have been pleased by it, the hotel facilities and the kind staff. The price was also very reasonable and much more affiodable than the usual known chain. I would go back again.

Stayed here on a quick break with my brother for three nights in December in a 2 bedroom apartment. This is now my go-to place in Wellington. For those looking for a short review: The Bolton is an excellent hotel. It is well-appointed, no fuss, very comfortable and you should enjoy your stay. The gym/pool/sauna is lovely. The staff are...

We stayed here on a weekend break to celebrate my wife's birthday. We chose the hotel as it is generally regarded and one of the best in Wellington. We had a guest studio, which was on the small side, although it was arranged well so there we no issues getting around. Everything was clean and tidy. In hindsight we probably...

Our team stayed here for work in December. This is the 5th hotel I have tried in Wellington and I enjoyed the Bolton the most. My room was small, but comfortable and provided all necessities and more and also a glimpse of the hills which was pleasant. The reception team were efficient and quickly managed printing of documents with no...

Everything you would expect from a $260 room - including the dressing gowns and slippers nice ensuite with all the extras But the air con sounded like a jumbo jet - the fan wouldn't stop even when the air con was turned off

Myself and my girlfriend have stayed here twice, the first time in September and then October 2013. Both times the staff were helpful but the first time was our favourite time as our room was the same kind of room (suite) but it was much larger and better laid out. The queen size bed is super comfy, we were able...

Bolton Hotel used to be my default choice in Wellington. I have made a glowing review of the Bolton on TripAdvisor a year or so ago. A recent stay (a couple of weeks ago) has made me rethink its default status. I think the hotel is at a crossroads. It has reigned supreme on TripAdvisor for some time but it...

My partner and I had stayed in a guest studio for 4 nights and we were happy we chose a boutique-style hotel vs. a larger establishment (not that there are many in Wellington to choose). Prior to writing this review, I looked at the hotel's website and want to commend the hotel. In my opinion, unlike other hotels, distort the...
