Most of us wouldn’t dream of leaving home without our smartphones which makes it hard to imagine how people in the 19th century survived without the internet, computer or mobile phones. We all need ‘an office away from the office’ when we travel and access to high speed Internet is the only way to go.

The Bolton Hotel was one of the first New Zealand hotels to offer no restrictions on Wi-Fi access and to make it available free to all guests. You can now connect up to 4 devices, not just in your room, but throughout the entire hotel, so you can get online fast and finish that important email or keep up with the latest international news headlines.

If you just want to relax in your room after a busy day, we make that easy too with in-room i-Pads and customized Bolton App. You can discover which floor the pool and spa are on, choose a delicious meal from the room service menu, order your own comfy pillow from the pillow menu, or peruse any of our other services and facilities and then order directly from the Bolton App.

The in room i-Pads complement other high-tech services and soon the hotel will offer express i-Pad check-in facilities.

The Bolton will be one of the first hotels in New Zealand to offer this service, which makes check-in and out much quicker for guests, as well as reducing paper waste.  There’s still a friendly customer service staff member on-hand to greet you; it’s just that now we’re using clever technology to make things more efficient.

We can offer brilliant ideas like this because we’re independent. It allows us to respond quickly to our guests’ needs and provide exceptional customer service.
