“Getting Tired”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We have stayed at the Boulcott Suites several times; last stay was in 2011. They do offer spacious well equipped apartments and townhouses in a great location, and at a price. However they are showing signs of needing a good "maintenance" clean - especially the bathrooms. Mildew shower seals & dust clogged extractor fans were indicitve of deficient quality control. We were also surprised at the unwarranted and unhelpful response prior to check-in when we tried to confirm a parking bay by telephone.

If you want a hotel with character in Wellington then I recommend the Museum Hotel, however I frequently stay at Boulcott Suites when I need accomodation for a large group, and it is ideal. The 2 bedroom apartments are clean, spacious and have plenty of amenities - washing machines, 2 bathrooms, etc. The location is good. It is quite a long walk to Courtney Place, specially on a wet, windy Wellington night, but taxis are cheap and plentiful. It is also well located for the shops in Lambton Quay. I recommend the pub just across the road - the General Practitioner. Great beer and food.

The place was right downtown, so attractions were really close by. However, it being downtown also made it very hard to find and drive to, and the parking was a real pain. The staff was all right, although not as helpful as Some of the other places we went. The rooms were really great. Very clean, comfortable and quite lovely.

We stayed here whilst we had the awesome chance of seeing The Phantom of the Opera in Wellington. The location couldn't have been better and the quality of the rooms was pretty good too. Only thing to mention is the sink drain and shower drain could do with some elbow grease and plunging as water took a while to drain. We stayed for three nights and the teas, coffees etc didn't get replaced at all BUT it didn't matter as we came prepared but we had to ask for more dishwashing detergent. Only small stuff and apart from that, everything was great at Boulcott Suites.

Fantastic accommodation and location but impressed overall by the excellent customer service which has exceeded any prior experience in other hotels. We were in Wellington for a two educational working party and get caught up in the recent wind and rain storm that resulted in the closure of the venue we were working at the cancellation of our flights. Amy and Amanda on reception kindly allowed us to stay and use our apartment to meet and stay until our outgoing flight was confirmed at no extra cost, in addition to providing us with free interment access to enable us to to work .On behalf of the group staying many, many thanks. We will most definitely return for our Wellington meeting and unreservedly recommend them to others.

We managed to secure a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom town house at this complex. It was for 4 couples so the size was perfect. The beds were very comfortable and the whole place was very clean. We found it also very quite for the position it is in. Except the people who obviously were coming home early morning ...6am from drinking.. lol...it is very central city and easy walk to all shopping whether you going to cuba street/manners mall area or the other way and wandering down to lambton quay. Easy distance to courtney place where all the bars and restaurants are as well. We were all very impressed and the lady who was behind the reception was so helpful. We had a couple arriving late from Auckland and she arranged a key with all the instructions left in the lock box so that they were able to drop off there bags and then join us at a bar which meant we did not have to go back to let them in etc. We all agree that we would most definately stay here again

We stayed here recently for our daughter's graduation, and were really impressed with our stay here. Our flights got cancelled due to fog, and they were very accommodating in finding a room for us at the last minute, late at night. In addition we left some items behind, & Amy & Shelley went all out in locating & returning our items to us...beyond our expectations in the specific circumstances - but very much appreciated. Thanks so much.
