TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Ziggy229 29/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

We enjoyed an excellent free upgrade to a suite with great views of the Remarkables, lake and town from our luxurious room. Ralph and his friendly team made sure we were well looked after in the restaurant and lounge. The chateaubriand is a must for everyone’s bucket list!

Bonjour / Tena Koe Ziggy229, Sincerest thanks for your kind feedback and delighted that the team took great care of you! Will also pass your feedback onto Ralph! We look forward to having you back with us again to try the Chateaubriand! Cordialement / Naku noe, na Jeremy Samuels - General Manager Sofitel Queenstown Hotel & Spa

GeoffT593 09/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

It was a wonderful break away, thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable. The team made the difference - nothing was a problem! Ralph was pleased to see us again and was very good at taking care of us. The breakfast team was awesome, attentive, helpful and cheerful! Reception was a dream, taking care of all our needs - even arranging for us to have a continental breakfast box when we left super early on a trip. The thoughtful touches were appreciated, like our case being taken to our room a lovely welcome snack and drink! Everyone was very pleasant and made us feel very special. My wife enjoyed the Spa visit and our room was also amazing! It was my wife's birthday and she can't stop raving about how good the trip was - we can't wait to be back! Thank you all! Geoff & Ariana

Bonjour / Tena Korua Geoff and Ariana, Many thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us. I was delighted to read that the team took such great care of you and pleased to see Ralph recognised. Wonderful to hear Ariana enjoyed her birthday celebrations - we look forward to having you both back with us again soon!

RobLex 02/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

We had another amazing stay at the Beautiful Sofitel Queenstown, were staying for 8 nights but a glitch with Air travel gave us another night , yay.The best thing about the Sofitel is the staff,Harriet who i did not meet was excellent with needing to change our dates on our original booking. At reception there was Rose and Joseph (also last year) Pradnya and many others who helped made us very welcome. The restaurant 1789 Lounge was running on a limited menu (Covid) but it was excellent beautifully cooked ,presented and delicious.We had Ralph also from last year , a top guy there was not anything that he couldn’t do to keep us well looked after , also Kristine who the the awesome Cocktail, ‘Paris with Love ‘ other restaurant staff whose names are leaving me at the moment were all great. These friendly people also looked after the Club Lounge which was excellent.The Chefs also need a pat on the back as they had to deal with unknown numbers and still kept doing excellent dishes. Breakfast at the Left Bank Bistro is always great and also do great coffee , again all the staff were excellent and certainly Cameron made us feel at home and remembered each day what we were going to order. My wife Alexis and myself visited the Spa and were treated like we were royals , makes you feel good when you leave. We had a beautiful Prestige Suite which was awesome, great Sofitel my bed ,beautiful bathroom and great lounge area, apparently it was my job each morning to set the lovely swag drapes. Anyway our time was all over to quick and had to leave so a big Thank You to all at the Sofitel Queenstown and Spa employees Cheers Rob Drake

Bonjour / Tena Koe Rob, Please allow me to take this opportunity to thank you for your kind feedback. Delighted to read so many of our team members recognised here - this truly makes my day - will ensure this is shared with them.

We stayed in one of Superior rooms. Staff was great at reception. I must thank to DM on duty and reception staff(sorry i dont remember the names) for arranging a microwave for us. My daughter ended having a nice hot food which is always a delight for a parent. My wife enjoyed the spa and we have lovely breakfast. An amazing stay for us

The staff at Sofitel Queenstown were all so wonderful. They made our experience so much better. They made us feel so welcome and went beyond to make everything enjoyable. The only thing that I would say is the shower was not working very well and may need a new shower head. thanks

Bonjour Jess A., It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. We do appreciate your comments regarding the poor internet connection, also shower head not working properly. We are currently in the process of replacing those parts and your feedback has been brought to the attention of our Senior Management Team. Thank you for sharing your experience and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, Aneta Buda Assistant Manager

TonyC5890 25/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

We have stayed in this hotel a few times now - the first time was amazing the second disappointing with a rear low floor room overlooking road works… This time the magic was back lovely room 5th floor forward facing with a bit of a view of the lake. The breakfast French style cafe was good reminded me of Paris I should have got an expresso to complete the memory. 1789 restaurant was excellent all the staff were friendly it was a very nice short break. The only down side for me is car parking being difficult to park for free or expensive to park at hotel.

Bonjour / Tena Koe Tony, Delighted we were able to turn your experience around from your previous stay. On that topic, I am pleased to advise that the roadworks on Man Street are nearing completion and we are looking forward to a return to normality in the coming weeks. I can certainly appreciate the frustration regarding parking - there will be a small increase in the availability of street parking as the Town Centre Upgrade and Waste Water projects stop work for the Christmas holidays. There will also soon be a new council carpark opening behind the hotel as park of the Lake View development which will also enhance parking options surrounding the hotel. Tony, thank you again for your feedback - we look forward to having you back with us again soon! Cordialement / Naku noa, na Jeremy Samuels - General Manager
