Pioneering Partners

By Paul Johnson | 29 August 2019

Bolton Hotel is proud to announce we are the Malaghan Institute's newest Lab Partner, supporting breakthrough discoveries in immunology and immunotherapy right here in Wellington.

We sent our Concierge Ingmar over to the Institute to find out more and you can watch his tour of the groundbreaking labs right here:

The pioneering, independent research institute focuses on a variety of research areas, working towards cures and treatments for cancer, infectious disease, allergies and degenerative brain diseases amongst others.

A registered charity and owned by New Zealand for the benefit of all Kiwis, the institute relies upon sponsorship and donations to ensure our remote island is equipped with the medical treatments we need.
As their newest Lab Partner, the team at Bolton Hotel are thrilled to sponsor the institute's groundbreaking Tumour Immunotherapy lab, where pioneering scientists are harnessing the body's immune system to fight cancer!

Unsurprisingly, the Malaghan institute's cutting-edge approach to research resonates strongly with us at Bolton Hotel. No strangers to the revolutionary, we were the first New Zealand Hotel to offer free WiFi to guests and to equip our rooms and housekeeping team with iPads to track room turnarounds, collect and respond to guest requests.

As an independent, family-owned and operated hotel, we can change the way we work and introduce new and unique features for our guests quickly and we relish doing things a little differently. We take our name from the Bolton Ship, one of the first settler ships to dock in Wellington and take the pioneering spirit of those early settlers to heart in everything we do

Hannah Chinnery, Hotel Manager

The entire team at Bolton Hotel are incredibly proud to be supporting visionary research right on our doorstep and look forward to seeing the Malaghan Institute place Wellington on the medical map!
