This hotel was recommended and didn't disappoint. We had a two bedroom suite, which was spacious and well appointed. Convenient location to city centre. Staff were helpful and offered good ideas for restaurants. The pool and health centre were great. Enjoyed breakfast on the first day, which was nice, typical buffet style hotel fare. Made use of the well equipped...

We recently spent three nights at the Bolton Hotel during a three-week trip around New Zealand. Judging from the guests we saw milling around the lobby, the Bolton appears to cater to business people. We had a studio, which struck both of us as being a little small for two people. The room was clean and comfortable, the furnishings modern...

We spent 3 nights here. It was an excellent base for seeing Wellington, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, the harbour, the botanical gardens and other interesting sites. Excellent breakfast, lovely spacious room, really helpful and 'entertaining' staff.

We recently stayed in a premium studio for the weekend. The room was spacious and well appointed with views to the memorial park which were very pleasant. An IPad for guests to use in the room was a novel addition and much appreciated. Staff were very courteous and in the Artisan restaurant at breakfast and dinner, they were exceptionally kind...

We stayed 3 nights here while travelling round New Zealand with friends. The location is good but we were not impressed with the room standard. We had a basic suite with a small bedroom and small double bed plus a sitting area. The furniture was also basic, a bit like Ikea. As with all modern city hotels we could not...

Staff were all lovely and very professional. We had two 2 bedroom apartments. Lounge/kitchen area was quite tight but master bedrooms and bathrooms were great! As someone else said before it isn't exactly luxurious and the decor is a little bland but was really nice regardless. Only annoying thing was one of the rooms didn't have the extra bath products...

I found a deal online that included breaky this made the stay very good value for money. There are nice little surprises like an ipad for your use that includes the hotel compendium or you can use the convention internet for free.

I wouldn't say The Bolton is luxurious, but we did think it provided exceptional value. Our 2BR suite was on the small side, with the exception of the master bath which was quite spacious - would be very tight for two couples. The décor was bland but fine. The wide selection of complimentary spa products (mud mask etc) was a...

My friend and I had the presidential suite. After an exhausting week we had room service dinner which was excellent and breakfast which was an inspiration. The place was spotless. The beds were so comfortable. The room temperature was perfect. It was quiet and peaceful. The staff were friendly and helpful. Room service was quick about 30 minutes each time....
