A very nice hotel with all amenities (although we felt the extra $30 to park our car a bit steep) but just lacks the charm and character for a truly great experience. Probably better suited to business travel than vacation. Next time we will look for something with a bit more character and maybe also a location down on the water or near Cuba Street which is a more interesting location than that of the Bolton. Otherwise we couldn't fault the room or service.

We shared a two bedroom apartment at the Bolton. It was fully equipped to include an iPad in each bedroom. Daily room cleaning included fresh sheets and towels. It is a short walk to the parliament area and restaurants. Twenty four hour room service is available. The Sunday morning market near the Te Papa museum is fun and the museum is spectacular.

Room Tip: A high room will provide a better view.

Thank you for your review and comments, very much appreciated. I was pleased you enjoyed one of our two bedroom suites. These suites are very popular for friends travelling together, families and business guests where the suite provides two bathrooms and a large lounge.

Stayed here on a work trip down New Zealand. Room was compact but smart, had everything we needed. The decor was modern - and the bed spread resembled a kiwi which was a nice touch, had some fun with that! The spa/gym was a relaxing addition and there were robes/slippers in the wardrobe for us to use. The only negative was the long walk to the more up-beat part of the city where the bars/restaurants were. Staff were so helpful and stored our luggage/ordered us a taxi when we checked-out.

This was our second stay at the Bolton and we will be back. We have stayed in suites both times and find that they have everything you need. A recent addition of iPad minis in the rooms is a neat feature for the techie minded amongst us.

We stayed in a 15th floor room overlooking the historic Bolton Street cemetery and parks which lead up to the botanic gardens. A nice easy walk up there and on to Zealandia. The hotel is very handy to the central city. We tried the restaurant this time. While the food was excellent, and the service competent, there is something missing...lacking atmosphere/soul?. It was a mid week and not very busy. Perhaps the vibes are better on a weekend.

Vey quiet air con units which is always a plus.

Very helpful reception and concierge staff and the most brollies we have ever seen for guest use!

Room Tip: Go for the view over the parks at the back. The motorway in between seems to stop between 7 pm and 6 am...! And there is no appreciable traffic noise.

Stayed here off an on for around 2 weeks, the staff were lovely and really helpful, the room was beautiful and clean. Parking nearby is really expensive, coffee is good, breakfast forgettable, esp. the breakfast staff who were too busy chatting to serve and forgot my coffee twice.
iPad in your room. The a rooms are tiny, unfortunately that's what I was in, not easy to relax in for that length of time, talking about the wardrobe is a polite way of saying a place to hang a coat.
Nice hotel, and probably one of the best in Wellington, but not amazing, esp. After the number of mistakes that my colleague had happen during his stay. It just seemed to miss the mark, sorry.

Thank you for your review and favourable comments. The room you stayed in is our smallest room, offering good facilities and bathroom with large 1m x 1m shower. The room was designed for the busy business traveller staying for a short period. I agree the room at 26m2 is on the small side and was not designed for guests staying for long periods of time. Having said that many guests who like to be out and about, are happy with this smaller room style.
