        Stayed in apartment. Kitchenette was ok hotplate and microwave. Small fridge that was a bit full of mini bar items to store many items. Apartment itself was clean, nicely furnished and spacious with plenty of natural light. Bathroom was clean and well sized with some helpful items such as sewing kits and shoe shine. The staff were lovely. The gym is small but overall adequate with dumbbells up to 10kg, a bike, elliptical rider, rower, treadmill and a small cable machine. The lap pool was large and heated and the spa was small but good. Close to gardens and cable car. Bit far from restaurants that are open after 1700 but the hotel has its own and there is udon and Malaysian close by on terrace better restaurants are 25 min walk away.

        Wifi is fast and free, Staff are very nice, Rooms are nice and new

        I really enjoyed this hotel. The internet was really fast, the rooms were clean and the staff were very friendly. Big positive for me was the speed of the internet, the location of the hotel was good and all around it was a good stay. The only negative feedback I would have is that the kitchen closes at 10pm. I came to the hotel late and they had a night menu that didn't look that great. If the kitchen was open for late arrivals then the hotel is close to perfect for my needs.

        near my meeting place

        A nice place to stay although there are no views and it is not within walking distance of most attractions in Wellington. Rooms are modern and have that German or Nordic feeling that is hard to describe but you know it when you see it. Huge bathrooms and the mini kitchens with washer/dryer combination is a huge plus, especially if you have been traveling a few days already. Dining room is very small and feels like they converted the inner balcony into the dinning room.

Dave the night manager went above and beyond to sort out an inconsiderate neighbour who had his very loud tv on past midnight. Very professional and friendly. We'll certainly stay again.

        Rooms are very generous, staff were super friendly and helpful, excellent central location. If I could have afforded to stay longer, I would have, but I found that luxury comes at quite a hefty price. That says more about my modest budget than it does the hotel.

        Stayed three nights to go to Edinborough Military Tattoo at Westpac Stadium and catch up with relatives. This hotel was ideally located for easy access to stadium and rail station. As most patrons were there for the Tattoo, the little welcoming Scottish treats in the room and flags in the foyer were a lovely touch. Quiet rooms which were very clean and tidy, staff were lovely.

        The location, the accommodation and the staff.

        We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bolton Hotel. Although a fairly big hotel, the staff still took the time to add personal touches such as switching on the kettle in our room just before we arrived very late at night. I also loved the bowl of little gingerbread men in the lobby over the festive season. I couldn't stop eating them! Our room was also lovely, clean and big. A truly excellent hotel across the board. We would definitely stay at the Bolton again.
