Best Hotel in Wellington

I've stayed in several hotels in Wellington, and before this stay at The Bolton, I thought that Museum Hotel was THE hotel to stay at in the city. But, I was so wrong. Yes, Museum Hotel is in a great location and has amazing decor, but you cannot beat the comfort, view, and size of the rooms at The Bolton. And it's impeccably clean. And the staff here are SO kind and attentive and not at all pretentious. They have been so helpful to me throughout my stay. The rooms are large and the bed has been super plush and comfortable. It's a short walk to Wellington train station, and to Lambton Quay shopping. It's a bit of a walk to the other end of town - Oriental Bay, Te Papa musuem, etc, but there are always buses running if you aren't up for the walk. Seriously, stay here!

Almost perfect ...

Everything was as good as it always has been when I have stayed at The Bolton. Clean, quiet and lovely staff with a low key sense of luxury. The room size this time however ... Felt like I was sleeping in the boot of my car. So small and pokey. Was very disappointed. However, in saying that I will stay there again and just cross my fingers I don't get room 307A again!

A lovely boutique Hotel

This lovely Hotel has everything you need. It is close to all the sights but off the main streets so a quiet position. The rooms are an acceptable size although the bathroom is quite small and not a lot of bench space. I was grateful for free internet. breakfast was enjoyable and the restaurant compact with comfortable seating.Staff were friendly and helpful with maps, taxis etc.I stayed in a studio room but there are other bigger rooms available. They have a heated pool and gym.Only took about 5 mins to walk to cable car and the main shops and about a 10 min walk to the harbour where there are some nice restaurants. Overall very happy with my choice.

Convenient and spacious

Excellent spacious rooms with kitchenette facilities - separate bedroom. Tucked behind The Terrace it is well placed for the Botanical gardens. Easy stroll to main part of town. Quiet location - if you want a view make sure to book on the east side of the hotel.

Amazing Hotel

Very luxurious rooms. Had every creature comfort we required, head and shoulders above every other hotel we stayed at in NZ. 2 Night time front desk staff were extremely helpful (Thanks Dave) as we arrived late at night, getting milk for young kids etc.
