Comfortable but corporate. My family of three adults took a 2 bedroom apartment. Soft mattresses. The kitchenette was adequate but needed some revisions: stained chopping boards were a bit gross, and the range of crockery, cutlery and glassware is a bit limited (coffee plungers are small). The view over the cemetery and Bolton street is South-West but pleasant, though on the 4th floor there is strong exposure to the Sofitel Hotel opposite and the street, so it's not fully private with the curtains open. The space felt smaller than the photos suggest and not especially upmarket, though inoffensive. Internet is free but requires browser authentication and frequent re-connection, which gets dull quickly. The minibar is only for those on an expense account and the restaurant pricing is a bit sharp; longer-term visitors will soon find alternatives nearby. The position and facilities, as they are, best suit business and political visitors. Unfortunately for our family vacation, the weekend pricing isn't demand-adjusted and we couldn't find comparable quality accommodation with a similar layout in the more social part of Wellington (around Courtenay Place and Te Aro). There are still gaps in the market.

Deceivable from the outside but the room and separate bedroom overlooking the park with a vista of the hills beyond was amazing! The kitchenette- more like a proper kitchen with all the amenities, was a welcome surprise, not to mention the great service and choices at breakfast with the short walk to the city center and much else with in easy reach. Highly recommend.

Visited Artisan Cafe for morning break. Good coffee, and cosy (ground level) feel. The food looked nice although I didn't try any. Next time 😊.

Comfortable, upscale boutique hotel in downtown Wellington. Stayed here 8 yes ago - loved it - had to stay here again on my return visit! Wonderful, friendly, efficient staff members make you feel welcome with their first "Hello!" Excellent rooms - mini-apartments, actually - quiet, well- appointed, slept like a baby! Pricier than some other hotels in the area but how much is your comfort worth if you're staying someplace more than 2 nights?! The Bolton is TOP SHELF!!

We stayed here for a couple of nights in while in Wellington. Staff are amazing and ready to assist at any time. The one bedroom apartment was clean, tidy with great views of the city - everything you need is there including a washing machine with a dryer. Recommended hotel!

Have stayed at the Bolton many times and never been disappointed. Great staff and high quality, clean and tidy rooms. Valet parking and restaurant. Located a bit away from restaurants and bars so a bit quieter and nothing is ever that far away in Wellington.

Still a favourite to stay in Wellington. The iPad “in-house menus” still confuse me a bit and the slightly “disorganised” bar/restaurant could really be improved but overall you offer excellent attentive service and a great “inner-city hotel” vibe. Well trained and friendly staff.

We had a premier suite which had been recently renovated. Very comfortable. The last time I was here in April’17, we were lucky to reserve the “Residence suite”. That is an experience from another world.

The Bolton now faces competition from the new Sofitel across the road but I’m sure, if it keeps it’s charm, it will be around for years to come. 5 stars again!

I've stayed here a few times and felt like the staff was well prepared to handle any situation. The on site valet parking service was prompt and courteous. The restaurant was fabulous and had plenty of seating for our group. The rooms were spacious and felt like a home away from home. I'd give 6 stars if I could!

Was in Wellington for a 3 days visit and had lunch there on a grab one voucher. It was the best meal throughout my stay - ambience, service and food were fitting of a 5 stars hotel. Sooooo good that I returned for lunch on my last day. Thumbs up to the 2 staff for their very attentive and service with a smile, especially on 2nd Jan.

This is a boutique hotel in a great location. Wi-fi is fast. I love that there is a bath tub and scented bath tea bags in my suite.
Of the hotels I've stayed in internationally, this is right up there as a favourite.

Excellent self-contained units with cooking facilities, a generous en suite bath plus shower, and a small living area. Spotless with modern decor, the hotel is a nice area with a handful of nearby takeaway places and small restaurants. The CBD is nearby, and other landmarks are a short stroll away. The hotel staff have impeccable manners as well as being friendly and helpful. The Bolton Hotel is no more than 20 minutes drive from the airport.

Stayed here for business trip for 2 weeks. It has all the basic stuff, food is good but the washing machine keeps breaking down. It would be better if the hotel had offered free laundry to make it up since I already paid for the laundry in the suite.

We stayed in a large studio type apartment with 2 double beds a large adjoining bathroom, a well equipped kitchen including washing machine and dish washer, stove and oven, a medium sized 4 seat dining table and a small but adequate TV cum lounge area. The bedroom also featured a TV. In a nut shell the apartment was the best value we have had in all our considerable travels with an excellent location, super attentive and helpful staff. Very highly recommended for a short or long term stay.

We stayed at The Bolton as we were evacuated from Hotel across the road. the staff were excellent. from the cafe providing refreshments to the concierge. We stayed in a 2 brm apartment with outstanding views. The beds were lavish and so comfortable. I would highly recommend this Hotel for a comfortable stay.

I have never left a review before beacuse i generally find everywhere satisfactory... however stayed here when the most recent earthquake hit! Very scary but was super impressed with the staff! They were all generally younger people and quite a few came in to help out even when they weren't asked. Just showed how much they cared for the hotel and guests. Was also told the building is only 2nd to Tepapa in relation to earthquake proof! The two young guys that were in the reception at the time were amazing and delt with the circumstances very professionaly and are very nice to chat too. We'll done Bolton in hiring such competent,nice and genuine people. I only hope they are recognised for it!

I love staying here on my trips to Wellington because of their wonderful staff, comfortable amenities, and convenient location. Their dining is excellent and prices are comparable with other establishments. I really like their staff and have always been more than helpful with directions and coordination of transportation. They are tucked conveniently out of the heavy traffic but always an easy walk to downtown shops and restaurants.

The wifi didn't work the entire time. I primarily travel for business so this made the trip a bit dysfunctional. The restaurant doesn't have vegetarian options other than chips. Ive stayed here three times and every other time was great. After this trip, I won't stay here again.
