Bolton Hotel rollsout iPads in every room
Bolton Hotel leads the way with iPad rollout
The Bolton Hotel, Wellington’s only boutique, five-star hotel, is excited to announce details of an exciting technology rollout, which will see iPad tablets available for guest use in every room of the hotel.
The introduction of in-room iPads is an innovative development and the Bolton is among the first properties in New Zealand to install iPads throughout the entire hotel, not just for selected rooms. Fully embracing the advances of technology, the Bolton Hotel has also had an App custom built for the iPads, which makes accessing hotel information a breeze for guests.
Meredith Ryan, the Bolton Hotel’s Manager, said: “We are incredibly excited to announce that iPads are now available in every room of the hotel. The fact that we are the first to offer this is great too – we are proud that we are innovating in this way and leading other hotels by adopting such technologies for all of our guests to use. It is also great that during this process, we have been able to forge a great relationship with another local business, Appus, who have developed the Bolton Hotel App for us. It is really satisfying to see other local businesses succeeding; it is really important for us to embrace local companies for products and services, wherever possible.”
The iPads will have multiple uses in each room. The entire Bolton Hotel is equipped with Wi-Fi, so guests can utilise their iPad for internet browsing throughout their room, and throughout the hotel, whether they are enjoying a coffee in the lobby, or eating a meal. Guests will also be able to access information about the hotel, from in-house guest facilities to daily menus from the Hotel’s popular eatery, Artisan. All hotel-related browsing will take place through the Appus-designed Bolton Hotel App.
Lawrence Bass, Head of Marketing and Sales at Appus said: “We were thrilled when we were approached by the Bolton Hotel to develop their App. It says a lot about the Hotel and the direction they are heading – they know their customers are utilising smartphones and tablets and are always connected. Businesses need to be part of that connection, and the way to achieve that is through a custom designed App. It is great to work with other businesses who recognise the value of that.”
The Bolton Hotel App contains all of the information usually found in the traditionally printed compendium, from hotel facilities, to safety information, to local attractions. Further to that, the iPads provide an easy way for guests to contact the front desk, concierge, or to order room service.
As well as being convenient and fun to use, the introduction of iPads throughout the hotel also contributes to the Hotel’s green credentials. The Bolton Hotel already possesses the coveted ‘Enviro-Gold’ rating from Qualmark, in recognition of their sustainability policy; which includes in-room recycling and power conservation options. By using iPads for the compendium, menus and other updates, the amount of paper used throughout the hotel is significantly reduced.
“For us, this is a logical step – our guests are our number one priority and everything we do is done to make their stay as enjoyable as it can be. In-room tablets are fast becoming the new mark of luxury service in hotels, and this is consistent with our position as Wellington’s only boutique, five-star hotel,” said Meredith Ryan.

New Hotel Manager
Bolton Hotel appoints Meredith Ryan Hotel Manager
The Bolton Hotel, Wellington’s only boutique, five-star hotel, has today announced a key personnel change, which sees Meredith Ryan take over the position of Hotel Manager, effective immediately.
Since opening in February 2005, the Bolton has firmly established itself as a hotel of unparalleled quality in Wellington’s CBD. Frequently ranked the Number One Hotel in the capital on the world’s largest travel site, www.tripadvisor.com, the Bolton also recently received recognition in their ‘Best of 2013’ travellers’ choice poll, ranked as one of the top 25 hotels in New Zealand; the only hotel in Wellington to make the list.
Warwick Angus, the Bolton Hotel’s Managing Director said: “We are delighted that Meredith has decided to take on this position. She is a true asset to the Bolton Hotel and her skills and expertise will ensure the smooth running of the hotel continues. Promoting her to the position of Hotel Manager was an easy decision to make as we know her strengths, capabilities and passion for the Bolton Hotel. With Meredith at the helm we are in good hands.”
Meredith has significant experience working in the tourism and hospitality sector, starting out with part time positions while still undertaking her studies at High School. Since that time she has obtained a Diploma of Tourism and Business Management and has honed her skills working in a variety of roles, from front of house to Corporate Business Manager.
Meredith joined the Bolton Hotel team in 2007. Prior to that she worked at the luxury Wharekauhau Country Estate in the Wairarapa and in Wellington’s Wellesley Hotel. She also spent two years in the United Kingdom, working at the Carlton Hotel in Edinburgh for one year, backed up by another year at the Cardiff Conference Bureau in Wales.
“I am thrilled to be taking over the position of Hotel Manager. The Bolton Hotel is such a special place and I can honestly say that I really love my job. The Bolton Hotel is known for its extremely high levels of service, it is really important to us that our clients get a faultless service and want to return. I look forward to working with our awesome team to maintain that high level, while also stamping my mark on this role.”
“It is great to see Meredith taking to the role with such confidence and enthusiasm. We have a lot planned for the next few months as we strive to provide the ultimate hotel experience for all of our guests. Having high quality staff is a big part of that. The future of the Bolton Hotel looks very bright,” said Warwick Angus.
