Bolton Hotel lead the way with iPad rollout in August 2013. Wellington's only boutique five star hotel was amongst the first to install iPads in every guest room, further embracing the advances of technology they also had an App custom built making 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, Cognil, 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 Bolton Hotel App contains all of the information usually found in the traditionally printed compendium, from hotel facilities, to safety information, and ARTISAN restaurant menus. Further to that, the next development of the iPads will make them completely interactive, providing a convenient and easy way for guests to contact the front desk, concierge or housekeeping, make their room service order and even pay their bill.
“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.
