If you believe hospitality is all about looking after the details, consider this. Amongst a host of refinements, the Bolton Hotel offers you a menu of pillow choices.

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’ll find any number of thoughtful touches, personalised extras and refinements that may not be apparent in larger hotels. Free unlimited WiFi for multiple devices, for example, and a choice of pillow types to help ensure a perfect night’s sleep.

Important though that is, it’s not the main reason for making sure you choose the Bolton for your luxury, tailor-made holiday to New Zealand. The hotel is situated 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 conveniently close.
