Shelby (front desk) and Kane were very welcoming and helpful in orienting us to the hotel and Wellington and giving us recommendations on eating/restaurants, and local sites and activities. The Jardin Grill ambiance was soothing and breakfast was one of the best we've had in New Zealand. Thanks!

Lovely hotel but some issues

The actual room was lovely. Beautifully decorated and comfortable bed. The only problem with the room was the wardrobe space. It is tiny both in width and more importantly in length!! As a business women travelling there was nowhere to hang a dress so in the end I had to hang my clothes in the bathroom!! I was also dissappointed at check in (which was late) as I had already provided all my details beforehand and normally when I stay at an Accor group hotels they have everything ready for me as a Silver member of your frequent traveller programme. I also wasn't offered a welcome drink voucher as I would usually which I believe is standard for your group.

I expected better from the Sofitel brand.

This was a disappointing experience overall. Firstly, when booking the option of selecting breakfast for $1 didn't process, then there was no complimentary still water in the room, the breakfast order was mis managed, the internet wifi frequently disconnected, and the service from most of the hotel staff was in-different at best. Not what I was expecting from a Sofitel hotel.

Excellent stay

It was fine. The breakfast was great but the room was very small and the bed was the same size as the double I stayed in the night after at a different hotel despite having booked a queen for the Sofitel. A little away from the action of Wellington for people not on business

Simply outstanding

Hugh A. Couples - 05/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Reception on arrival were friendly and efficient, the hotel room was good and well appointed, although it took time to discover the charging sockets which were on the side of a panel not easily seen. We ate both nights in the restaurant and found the food to be absolutely first class on both nights, with friendly courteous staff attending to our every need. I suggest booking a table looking into the kitchen, its fascinating seeing how the kitchen works. The dinners on both nights were the highlight of this hotel and I would highly recommend coming just for this experience. I have stayed in hundreds of hotel rooms all round the world so one room is just like the next so when you are treated to something a bit special then it that makes you want to return next time you are in town. Congratulations to the staff you made our stay something to remember.

Gerard Business - 04/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Overall good. Just one negative. Wanted to dine in the restaurant adn you used to have the fixed price two course menus. Was told this was only available when pre-booked via the web site. I thought this was a bit peculiar as I have stayed a few times and it was a spontaneous decision. The person on the phone did not budge and was not particularly friendly. I decided to go across the road to the Bolton and eat there. Was not so much cost but more the experience.

Bonjour Gerard, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Wellington. While I am pleased to learn you had an enjoyable stay with us overall, please allow me to offer my sincerest apologies for the experience you encountered while trying to book the course menu at Jardin Grill. Please rest assured I will pass this feedback on to the relevant teams and work in addressing this matter to ensure it does not happen again. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your feedback as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we truly hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future. Sincerely, Hemant Chawla Guest Experience Manager Sofitel Wellington

We loved our stay, thank you. We have dined at the in-house restaurant Jardin Grill many times and always really enjoy it, so decided we would treat ourselves to a staycation night for my husband's birthday and a mini-babymoon (as we live in Wellington). The room was lovely, the staff are always friendly and welcoming, and I think the breakfast is the best room service meal I've ever had! We especially loved the wee gift for our baby to be, thank you :)

We have been wanting to stay at the Sofitel in Wellington for some time and we decided to book ourselves and the family in as we were in Wellington for a exhibition. The staff were most helpful, love the ambience of the green room and the bedrooms and the beautiful decor. The breakfast was delicious and we will have to comeback for dinner next time...in fact I have already booked for May for our daughters graduation. :)

We had a night at the Sofitel for our wedding anniversary and from the moment we walked in the door it was perfect! The check-in process, the surprise champagne that arrived at our door, the room, the bed, everything was spot on. Thanks for making it a special stay! We will definitely be back.

Nicole R. Business - 03/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

I am an events manager and I told the team at reception on arrival that I would return quite late and leave very early the next day. I changed in my room, prepared for my awards dinner left informing reception that I'd used all the toiletries and returned to a fully serviced room. The small touch of a cup of tea waiting for me and small note telling me to sleep well was absolutely gorgeous. No one every thinks of the Event Manager, just how long they work, how many conversations they have in one night and how exhausting this all is. However, that small touch was better than the applause I received during the evening. Thank you
