We loved our stay at this Hotel once again and we look forward to going back as soon as we can. Fantastic service throughout, we love the new bar and the executive lounge which provided delicious pre dinner snacks and nice drinks. The room is incredibly comfortable as usual and we appreciated the sweet treats in recognition of being a Platinum Accor member , which is why we stay loyal to the brand. Also my wife was very impressed with the toiletries in the bathroom:) Thank you team for a most enjoyable stay !

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Bernt Couples - 27/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were having a short break in Wellington as part of our NZ Roadie (instead of our usual Brisbane Winter Break!). From our initial welcome* ,the quality, comfort and cleanliness of the room, the excellent food in the onsite restaurant, and the friendly but attentive service, through to our departure, we had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay. * (I regret to say I did not get your welcoming ambassador's name - a young woman of Japanese ethnicity who had previously worked at Sofitel Queenstown, but she is a great credit to your organisation!)

Nearly there

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Grant J. Friends - 26/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Reception service very good. Rooms very tidy and all amenities provided. Room air conditioning had a mind of its own and left us feeling dehydrated. Bar staff less than hospitable. Our group were cut off after only 2 rounds of cocktails due to fact that we were slightly loud and excited for the evening ahead. Our language was not uncivilised and other patrons were not disturbed. Our waiter was simply a little too fragile in our view and lost your bar a final $100 round.

Bonjour Grant, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Wellington. While I am pleased to learn you had a great stay with us overall, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize for the below par Food & Beverage experience overall. Please rest assured I will pass your experience on to our Food & Beverage Manager to provide further training to his team, in an effort to ensure an experience as such does not occur once again. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we truly do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the nearest future.

We understand the changes caused by Covid but the room was “stale”, noT Sofitel fresh, and the arrival/departure service by concierge should be more attentive. We love the hotel and want to support you.
