“Essentially a 1 bed apartment”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Room was great, Essentially a 1 bed apartment, living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Close enough to the city to walk. Would stay there again, need to put in some more words to get to 200 characters

The Bolton is a very comfortable apartment hotel. Very suitable for business travel particularly. We stayed in a Premier Suite. The contemporary décor works well, with a separate sleeping and sitting/dining area plus a modern well equipped kitchenette.
This was an accessible unit and the bathroom worked efficiently, with a large pull down shower seat in the wet room. There was no view from the room. Accessible rooms usually have the least favourable aspect in most hotels.
I loved the touch of an iPad mini provided at the bedside. I had brought my own tablet, but how thoughtful!
With only a very small entrance area the hotel needs to employ a valet parking service, which works. After driving around Wellington looking for restaurants or anywhere interesting to go for a meal, we gave up and decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. It was over priced for what it was but my husband thoroughly enjoyed his steak. The breakfast menu was extensive.
For any potential disabled or reduced mobility travellers who have found this review useful, I advise them to also consult the website www.wheelie-easy-hotels.com which offers information on hotels world-wide.
Hotel management representatives may also wish to enter information regarding their own property onto the same website.

Stayed here in winter 2011 and was very impressed. Lovely suite - lots of space, great view, excellent bath and breakfast was good. I'd happily stay again although the price does reflect the quality so it's more than I would normally pay.

We stayed here for one night (a Saturday) and liked everything about the place, save for the bed, which was too soft, although that is a matter of personal taste. The room was spacious, with a great view over the little church and churchyard. The amenities were generous, with good quality bath room supplies, a generous mini bar, a spacious sitting room, two tvs, free wifi, an in room iPad, and comfortable and practical furniture. The location is great, and the staff courteous and helpful. And, it was nice and quiet.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Bolton and were extremely happy there. The staff and service were outstanding. I was concerned that we were going to be too far from the harbour but as I soon found out nothing is far away in Wellington. The use of mini iPads in the hotel with free wi fi is fantastic. All hotels should be offering this service.a wonderful hotel.

Stayed in this Wellington hotel for 3 nights with a party of 3 in a 2 bedroom suite.
Good location just 3 minutes walk to the beehive-parlament buildings and not far from the Botanic garden either so good location,clean rooms friendly staff.
Excellent food as far as the room service goes.
The breakfast was mediocre at the breakfast room.
You have to order and do everything on the 2 ipad provided so if you not familiar with the gadget you can still order on the phone
The second bedroom is rather small but the main one and bathroom is really good size
There was some construction work was going on on the opposite site so had to keep the curtains on during the daytime but otherwise a fairly nice hotel -if you want a harbor or city view this hotel is not good for that

Room Tip: as high as possible

We'd highly recommend staying at the Bolton!!! We found the service to be outstanding - very generous and caring. The rooms were large, modern and beautifully appointed. The linens were luxourous. The hotel breakfast was superb - sooo much quality food! We couldn't fault our experience.
