This is the second time we have stayed at the Sofitel in Wellington. we stayed for three nights over Christmas. We chose to go back as we really enjoyed it there last time. We had a fabulous meal there one night and also a beautiful breakfast every day. We just cant fault this place! On both occasions we have stayed in ae Superior room as it gives a bit of extra space. If you are unfamiliar with Wellington, just ask at the desk for the shortcut to Lambton Quay from The Terrace which cuts a bit of walking out. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it.

Excellent stay for our anniversary
We were celebrating our anniversary during our stay at Sofitel. Had arranged a cake via the hotel, which was beautifully displayed in our room when we arrived (thanks Camilla)! Very nice aesthetics and excellent view from our room. Overall excellent service, and Sofitel accommodated our requests well. Only once during the busy dinner period there was a bit of a delay in getting plates/cutlery to the room, which did mean our food was getting cold. WiFi fast enough for Netflix, although couldn't find a way to cast/play on the TV. We found the room was generally well cleaned, however perhaps hadn't been rigorously vacuumed in a while so was slightly dusty. Not enough to be a major concern. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the 5 star service!

Nicely decorated rooms, and very quiet - hardly heard a sound. A little bit removed from most of the bars and restaurants - maybe a 15 minute walk. I prefer this, as it means the hotel and its neighbourhood are peaceful and quiet. Great location for business travel, I'd expect. Very clean, very friendly staff.
