My family on 5 needed a place to stay in Wellington and found to our surprise that it was cheaper to have 2 rooms here than it was to get an appartment at the rather grim Quest chain. Much to our delight we had adjacent rooms each with kitchen and washing machine. The rooms are modern, very clean and trendy....

The hotel is decent, location is very good, close the waterfront etc. They have 2 lifts and one of them was not working when we arrived. It wasn't working by the time we left! We stayed in the studio room with queen bed. The room was neat and tide, however the TV was on a wall not in front of...

Although the rooms are nice and clean (but on the small site), we were disappointed about overall as it was overpriced. There were several additional charges adding up during our stay: - parking for NZD 30 per night(!) - breakfast NZD 30 pp in which the cappuccinos were not even included (extra payment without pre-warning by staff) - credit card...

Thank you for your review and comments. I respond to your 3 points: • The Bolton Hotel is in the heart of the government sector of Wellington’s CBD. There is no free parking in the CBD, the exception is overnight parking and weekends where some “2 hours free” parking is available. We provide a valet parking service at a rate...

Thank you for your review and comments. I offer my apologies for the response received regarding the noise in your room, this is regrettable, particularly as this occurred on your wedding night. You have indicated a banging noise and I suspect this was wind suction causing the flexible duct above the ceiling to flex. I have arranged for our building...

Thank you for your review following your stay with us on the 18 April 2014. This disappointing review is the worst and I think most unjust review we have received on TripAdvisor. Let me explain: • There is absolutely no question two bookings were made. • The first booking on the 20 March 2014, for our lowest cost Studio room....

The Bolton is absolutely stellar. Upon walking into our two bedroom suite, we were greeted with beautiful views and incredible amenities. The washer and dryer were a special treat, as we had been hiking and climbing for several days prior. The staff was very welcoming - even the concierge brought up our luggage himself. The only thing that left something...

The Bolton is a haven for travellers in the Wellington CBD. The rooms are essentially apartments with laundry facilities and kitchens etc. The bathrooms are well appointed. Free wifi and gym facilities etc. complete the picture. It may not be the cheapest on offer, but is excellent late for money.
