Wellington is a very cool capital city, arty, pretty with its lacy hills and harbour, great food and coffee. Fortunately I had two very good guides to introduce me to breakfast in Cuba Street, the elemental delights of Te Papa (with it's earthquake simulator and real film of the Ruapehu eruption, plus Mauri culture and the wildlife of NZ) and …

... bizarre. It reminded me of Alice in Wonderland. There were lampshades, flames, bells, a load of things with electric mini hammers repeatedly hitting them such as saw blades and copper bowls, smoke machines, trees lit up different colours, random gramophones, disco lights, light up spinning windmills, flashing neon words, and a stage with slowly moving green lights, fern plants and weird whale-like noises in the background. ...

Living with the Kiwis

A travel blog entry by trish.coverdale


... It was a glorious day and we stopped off for a bar lunch at a little pub in the middle of the hills. There was a local cricket match taking place on the common ground opposite and it reminded me of village life back in England. Not quite sure why some of them were wearing white wellies though! Country em! The steak burger arrived and I think there was a whole cow in mine! Talk about big! The beach was lovely, two coves joined together with a ...

The Irish have pretty much invaded Australia, be it out of necessity to work or following the trend and setting off to where the grass is always greener. Personally it was always New Zealand that caught my attention, tales of fairytale scenery had sparked my curiosity. This coupled with the fact I was meeting up to travel with two buddies I met in Vietnam meant I was pretty excited hopping on the plane out of Sydney to sample the land of
the long white cloud which ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Bolton Hotel Wellington

    Modern, sleek and perfect


    My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom suite for two nights and didn't want to leave. The location of this hotel to everything is fantastic. Central and quiet. The kitchenette in the room was great, it even had a dishwasher. Spacious bathroom. Very modern, sleek and comfortable with all the "mod cons" you could want. Free internet on the lobby computer, too. Great staff. Great internet rate. Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

    Brilliant hotel, fab stay


    After a long drive down from Auckland the Bolton was a welcome sight.

    Excellent hotel


    My 2nd stay at the hotel, this time for 3 nights fllowing my first visit in May. I received congratulations from all 5 colleagues (including a couple with a young child) to whom I had recommended the hotel and who had taken rooms at the same time.

    The best customer service


    The staff were very welcoming and took an interest in our well being throughout our stay. The restaurant Bisque offers only an average breakfast however dinner although pricey should not be missed. The monkfish was exquisite.

    The gym is a bit small and could do with a rowing machine.

    We will definitely stay again if in Wellington.

    Loved the Bolton Hotel


    Stayed at the Bolton Hotel for just one night but would have happily stayed a week or more! Our room on the 12th floor was spacious and comfortable with interesting city and park views. Our room had a well-equipped kitchen area complete with dishwasher and well-stocked minibar/refrigerator. Bathroom was spacious and well-appointed with a nice shower. Good supplies of coffee, tea and snacks were available in room. We made use of the hot-tub in the Fitness Centre which ensured a good nights sleep. Carparking was on-site at NZ$12 - our car got the spend the night in the 10 storey car-stacker! Breakfast options at the hotel were attractive but we opted to partake at one of the breakfast hangouts within easy walking distance on Lambton Quay (start of the the "Golden Mile" shopping precinct). Parliament Buildings including the Beehive literally 2 minutes away on foot as were historic park and cemetary which our kids found very interesting to visit. Morning newspaper and newsletter was a nice touch. Staff were courteous and efficient. What more could you want in a hotel package?!

    What a great place to stay!


    My (adult) kids and I stayed at the Bolton for two consecutive weekends recently, and were so pleased with the experience!

    STAY HERE!!!!


    We stumbled upon the Bolton by accident. Thank goodness for serendipity. EVERYTHING about this hotel is FABULOUS: rooms, service, restaurant, location, value. The ambience is modern, sleek and tasteful. You'll like it even if your favorite style is Chippendale. Rooms are spacious apartments with every amenity provided including in-room washing machine with free laundry detergent. Restaurant has varied, interesting and creative menu for dinner and breakfast. Location is a few blocks from the Parliament buildings, a lovely waterfront stroll from the Te Pau Pau museaum and a quick walk to the tram that takes you up the hill to the Botanical Gardens. (Don't miss the Gardens- well marked path will take you right back to the Bolton!) There is an attached parking garage and easy access to the highway north or the ferry to the South Island. Repeat after me: "STAY HERE!".

    What a find!


    Great hotel in quiet part of town. Very modern decor but still comfortable.Perfect for 2/3 day stay in the city. Pool was fun - very small and rather cold but hot tub makes up for it!

    A great choice


    We enjoyed our two nights in the Bolton Hotel. The hotel is in central Wellington, on the fringe of the business district and only 5 mintutes walk from the waterfront and 2 minutes from the main shopping area. Our 'room' was actually an apartment, with separate living / kitchen and bedroom and spacious bathroom - plenty of space to spread out. As we were on the 13th floor we had good views over the neighbouring park and hills surrounding the city. There's no ocean views, which could be a bit of a disadvantage to some travellers.

    The "spacious" Bolton


    My 3 night stay at the Bolton was a delight. On arrival about midnight
