A family-operated hotel just steps from the vibrant waterfront, the Bolton is a brilliant base for making the most of your stay in New Zealand’s energetic capital.

The Bolton – it’s named after one of the earliest of the immigrant ships to arrive here – is an independent hotel that specialises in welcoming visitors to Wellington. So you can expect to find a number of thoughtful touches, personalised extras and refinements that may not be apparent in larger hotels, including a choice of pillow types to help ensure a perfect night’s sleep. The rooms are some of largest in the city, and range from elegant studios to airy, apartment-style suites that are great for families. 

Choose the Bolton your luxury, tailor-made holiday to New Zealand, and you’ll find yourself in the heart of the capital, in the area most prized for its upscale restaurants, cafés and shops. The botanical gardens, park, Parliament buildings, waterfront and theatres are all close at hand. After exploring the area, return for a refreshing dip in the hotel’s lap pool, or a sumptuous high tea in the lobby.
