Staff are really friendly and helpful, particularly reception staff. Our suite was clean, spacious and had a great view. Pool and gym facilities available. Walking distance to everything or a super cheap Uber to Cuba/Cortney Place

Good Afternoon Liz, Thank you so much or your review. We pride ourselves on service so it's particularly warming to hear the reception team were especially helpful. We're so fortunate Wellington is such a compact walkable city, it certainly made lockdown bearable with plenty of hiking trails on our doorstep too! We hope to see you again at Bolton Hotel very soon. Warm regards, Paul

Good Morning, Many thanks for your review, I'm so glad you enjoyed our buffet breakfast and thanks for letting us know about your room's carpet. We are in the process of a staged refurbishment, with two floors already completed. We'd love to welcome you back in the future to try one of these rooms. Warm regards, Paul

The people in the ‘property’ were lovely and friendly...happy to go the extra mile to prevent extra money being spent on parking and assisted beyond their pay checks. Private feel, good service, quiet and saved me from going to sleep behind the wheel on the way home. Keep it up. Would appreciate a more Economical room for those like myself who visit hotels when absolutely necessary. Cheers

Good Morning, Many thanks for your review, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and we saved you from a long and tiring journey! We're so proud of our team and the friendly, personal service they provide so it's brilliant to hear our staff were a highlight of your stay. We have a range of room types and our Sleep and Go studios are the most economical for a quick stop in the city. Now we are in Wellington's high season, these are often the first rooms to go so may have been sold out during your stay. We hope to welcome you back soon should you be travelling through the capital again, Warm regards, Paul
