Boult Room (A Premium Suite) 

The Boult Suite is named for Philip Burbage Boult, who was formally granted the land in 1876.  Over the next decade a timber outbuilding with stone foundations was built on the back of the site at the Ballarat/Hallenstein Street corner with a further northern extension added by 1886.  The original outbuildings to the north were subsequently removed.

What our patrons say

"Perfect stay at Hulbert House. Amazing hotel with the best customer service I have ever experienced. Laura, the manager on duty, would go above and beyond to make our stay the best possible. And the hotel itself is amazing. A recently renovated 19th century house with incredible design, short walk to the town centre, and a breakfast to die for."

"A relaxed elegant property, that offers wonderful unobtrusive service, the rooms are superbly appointed and there is no outside noise or inside noise that one would expect from a restored 1800's villa. Overlooking Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu the views are stunning."
