Due to unforeseen circumstances (Flight cancellation) we had the pleasure of checking ourselves into the Sofitel to cheer ourselves up. We had two nights here before we could get our flights sorted. I can't speak highly enough of the Sofitel, the staff throughout the whole hotel were wonderful, we stayed in one of the luxury rooms and couldn't fault it. The bathroom was hugh, the room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. We used the gym and the swimming pool and couldn't complain about either of these facilities. The restaurant had a good selection of food and we really enjoyed what we chose.
As we were supposed to be overseas for our 30th wedding anniversary, my husband arranged for a lovely breakfast with champagne to be delivered to our room. It was delivered with a no charge. We were so impressed. Thankyou so much for that. We can't wait to go back to the Sofitel, its in a perfect spot, around the Viaduct. Easy walking distance to Queen Street and because its on the water you get lovely views.
We would recommend this hotel with the highest recommendations, we just loved it.
