We decided to hold our wedding and reception at the Sofitel as we were impressed by the surroundings and the ambience of the place. We had been looking for a venue that would accommodate a relatively small party (27) without losing atmosphere and feeling lost in the space. The Sofitel ended up fitting the bill perfectly. Our host for the wedding was Irene Noordhoek, who with her assistants, made the whole experience fantastic. There are gorgeous spots for photos, both inside and out, the place is chic and elegant, the food was delightful, the atmosphere was amazing and the room (we had a Junior Suite) was spot-on. It could not have been done any better. Attention to detail was what Irene and her team delivered in an accomplished and charming way. I would not hesitate to recommend this venue. The one downside for us was we can't afford to do it all over again so soon, but anniversaries are planned for the same room every year as long as the standard of this hotel remain!
