“Good location and nice rooms but internet should not cost $20 per person per day.”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

The property is walking distance to most of Wellington and our room was fairly well sized and modern, but in 2014 a hotel trying to attract customers should not be charging $20 per 24 hours per device for internet. We also paid $45 for a rollaway which is a bit excessive and it took them 24 hours to send a maintenance man to fix our blocked shower drain.

A must stay if you are in Wellington! Although I lived in St George which is right next door to this accomodation, so I knew where to go around the city, the building itself is immaculate for its location.
We had a 2 bedroom suite which is clean and tidy. The bonus ensuite with having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms was a bonus especially at such a good price! Not exactly the best view from our rooms however it's only 10-15 minutes walk. If you know Wellington like I do, you would know that the walk itself to Oriental Bay/the waterfront is a adventure in itself.
Most definitely staying here again when visiting Wellington.

In the interest of full disclosure, I was staying at this hotel in Welly during 130km/h weather wind speeds, so it wasn't an exceptionally relaxing evening. In saying that, the room I was staying in managed to dull the bulk of the noise, and the bed was comfortable enough to counteract the weather stress.

Reviewed 16 November 2013

I stayed at the Boulcott Suites for almost 3 weeks in one of the 2 bedroom apartments on the front of the building facing the church. I travel a lot, and this was probably the best apartment I have stayed in. I enjoyed the roominess of the apartment, and the full washer and dryer along with dishwasher were nice amenities. Great location within walking distance of everything with the CBD. And, close to bus lines and a taxi stand for trips further out. All of the staff were wonderful....every request was handled promptly and efficiently. I thought the continental breakfast offered from Smith the Grocer was a good value for the money....enough for 2 days. I encountered none of the noise issues mentioned in other reviews. I applaud the fact that the apartments are non smoking, however, my only complaint was with my neighbors smoking on the balcony. I had to keep my door and windows closed to keep the smoke from coming into the apartment. That didn't happen that often, though, and doesn't detract from my overall rating. If I return to Wellington at some point, I will certainly consider staying at the Boulcott Suites again. Thank you for a nice stay!

Really friendly service from booking enquiry to checkout, beautifully appointed and spacious two bedroom apartment with very comfortable beds in a perfect location to explore Wellington city on foot. We stayed on the last WOW weekend and although the hotel was very busy nothing was too much trouble for the efficient staff here.

Room Tip: We had apartment 18 on the end which we found to be very quiet.

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.

Reviewed 23 September 2013

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.
