Nice hotel, good location but expensive valet parking. The washer/drier in our apartment was useless, it didn't dry at all, had to put clothes on airer to dry. The hotel is a short walk to the wharf which is a good place to visit and has plenty of eateries. We pre-arranged a time to have our luggage collected from the...

We stayed for 3 nights in a one bedroom suite. The room was spacious and very comfortable. While we did not pay for a good view, you can ask for a view of the botanic garden, and that should be good. The staff was both helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and sauna. My husband was not...

To put it simply: this hotel is great. The rooms (Room 1501) are very spacious, beautifully appointed, chock full of nice amenities (including a full kitchen and a washer and dryer), and extremely comfortable. The location of the hotel is convenient to Government offices and to the Interisland Ferry terminal, but also very close to the lovely Botanic Gardens. The...

The hotel staff were so friendly and nice! We stayed just one night here and they asked us if it was our honeymoon and upgraded us to a nicer room that was so beautiful! Huge big bed that was so comfortable and my partner loved the mini bar!

As return guests we knew the hotel had been refurbished and was completely earthquake proofed - and we weren't let down on anything. New guests have to realise this is a small boutique hotel, very intimate in the lobby and the dining room, with lovely spacious bedrooms, no vast tiled lobbies or eating places within here. If you don't try...

We returned to New Zealand for our second time in as many years. After a week at a friends on the South Island we returned this time to Wellington via ferry and for another stay at the Bolton. We were greeted like old friends and got the promised king suite booked for 4 nights. There was some confusion at the...

The Bolton is a very stylish, clean, well run hotel. Our room was a very good size, with a great bed and very nice bathroom. Nice views on the west side to the hills and across the old cemetery, though they do cop a fierce afternoon sun. Front desk service was very good, with helpful advice on managing the street...

I cannot recommend this hotel. While I can see that it has the potential to be a really great place to stay, it soundly misses the mark in some key areas: the air system and safety. Both are important problems, however, the most troubling issue is their reluctant, disingenuous and unprincipled way of dealing with problems. The air conditioning system,...

Thank you for you review, however it is necessary to correct some errors in your review. The main point I do want to make is the safety issue which we take exception to. The tripping of the power was due to multiple chargers and adaptors being used in the room which tripped the cut out in the distribution board. The...
