We had been looking forward for a long time to our stay at the Bolton for our first wedding anniversary. While the staff were lovely, (they followed my request to have a bottle of wine, supplied by me to be chilled in our room on arrival) and we were impressed with the room initially, that went downhill. It was a muggy day in Wellington and we couldn't control the aircon in our room. It seemed to be set at well over 20 degrees. It cooled in the evening, but in the morning it was again up over 21. This meant that when we had showers in the morning and came back out into the room we were hit with a wall of heat and immediately soaked in sweat. There was literally no way to cool down. It was like being in Thailand, though in Thailand it was 36 degrees outside and we had proper aircon! We are in Wellington where the outside temp was 21 and cooler than the room. We looked forward to trying the restaurant but the menu seemed very pretentious and trying too hard. When the "chef's special" is a standard steak and (disappointing) handcut chips, something is wrong.

Good Afternoon, Many thanks for choosing us for your wedding anniversary stay, though I'm sorry to hear things didn't quite hit the mark on this occasion and there were issues with the aircon. Please accept this is unusual though we do have portable chillers in case of the unlikely event of such issues and the team are always just a phone call away to help. We're always looking to improve and value all feedback, we've been receiving some great feedback on our recently released dinner menu and aim to include a range of options to please all tastes and palates, from the more innovative smoked beef tongue to classic burgers. We'll certainly look into our Chef's specials going forward. We truly pride ourselves on friendly, personal service, so it's wonderful to hear the team were helpful and we hope to welcome you back to Bolton Hotel in the future. Warm regards, Paul
