The Sophia Hotel
Ranked #5 of 6 Bonnievale B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 December 2013

We've spent only 1 night at the Sofia hotel, this is ideal place if you need a bed only in a well decorated room, but you should be aware :
- No airco,
- No TV,
- Private bathroom means that you have to go out of your room with your keys and walk to your bathroom a few meters at the back. We thought the description on the website is a bit chicky and has mislead us,
- No easy access to a plug: we had to pull the bed by 50cm to access to the only plug of the room,
- no black out curtains : we wake up at 5 am thanks to the beautiful SA sun,
- the coffee room is commune and we were unlicky enough to have an unconsidered client that was very noisy,
- the room is very (I mean very) small,
On the positive side the hotel has a free wifi, a bar opens late and clean. Staff is friendly.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled as a couple

Hi there

Thank you very much for the honest feedback. We are now in our 5th month of being fully operational, and welcome your feedback. We will definitely address the plug issue, as well as the blockout curtains. The hotel was renovated with the idea to provide budget accommodation, which is 40% less than the going rate for other accommodation in the area, therefore one should probably not expect all the luxuries.

We do apologise if our website were misleading, we will correct this for future guests. The hotel was renovated to be environmentally friendly, therefore we have heatpumps, fans, LED lighting etc. this is another reason why we don't have airconditioned rooms.

We really hope to see you again in our beautiful town.

Kind Regards
Karen and Karin
