Wonderful place to stop right in the heart of Wellington. We walked from the train station and easy to find. Rooms are modern and spacious, iPad to lookup about the hotel, access room serve and great views. The "beehive" or parliament building around the corner. We walked to the historic cable car and down to the happening Cuba st. The...

Had a suite on 16th floor which was exceptional with lovely sitting room with kitchen and even a washing machine. Big bedroom with comfy bed and big bathroom with bath and shower. Good breakfast and good service. Can't ask for much more from a city centre hotel. The hotel is independently owned apparently and that is a bonus too in...

Great location near Parliament House in central Wellington. Check-in was a bit slow and front desk took forever to answer the phone. Room was a reasonable size with clean linen but a slightly dated fit out which always reminds you the building is a former office block. Wifi code was very fiddly to find. No water in room. Breakfast good...

The Bolton Hotel is on a quiet street near to the lower end of the gardens. We had a beautiful room with large picture windows looking out on the hills. The location was great and the suite had many nice amenities. Check in was smooth and professional.

We recently stayed here for two nights. We wanted somewhere close to the railway station as we were getting the train to Trentham for the races. It was a 10 minute walk to the train station, the water front, and 5 mins from the end of a main shopping street in town. The Beehive was at the end of the...

I have stayed in the Bolton Hotel twice now, and have not been disappointed. The rooms are spacious, well kitted out and very clean. Beds are comfortable, but pillows are on the harder side. My preference is for a soft pillow! Staff are courteous and thoughtful. There is a dining room, and a foyer cafe which serves great coffee and...

A good friend recommended the Bolton in Wellington and they were right. Every aspect was professional and of high quality. The staff, the room, the kitchenette and washer/dryer set up and the restaurant were all excellent. We will definitely stay here again.

It's 1:45 in the morning in room 1003 and the windows and walls are creaking like a ship about to capsize. The sounds are _extremely_ loud and unnerving and make it sound like the building is going to collapse. In forty years staying in hotels I've never heard anything like this. When I asked to change rooms, the front desk...

We really like this hotel, it was centrally located, the room was really comfortable and the bathroom was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. We also had their breakfast which was a buffet with a good selection.
