It was the first time we had been at a Sofitel hotel. Wow it was just wonderful and we would recommend it to anyone who wanted to be in a central location.The hotel with friendly helpful staff went out of their way to help.Thanks you for all you help we really appreciated it. Our room was cleaned, bed made and fridge replenished everyday. Thanks again for making our stay just sooo lovely. We hope to win lotto one day and would stay for a week not just the 3 nights as it was just so nice to be waited on.The barman never forgot our drink order thanks for that you were great

Nice hotel continuing to trade through new ownership transition and a major renovation of the foyer and guest facilities.

We needed a great place to stay so we could enjoy an evening out in the Viaduct area and this place was perfect - very stylish, very quiet, helpful staff,and great value. A bit 'undiscovered' at the moment but am sure that won't last

If you want a great and comfortable hotel room this is a perfect choice. The amenities are delux, the bed the best I slept in entire NZ, the bathroom super-clean, large and modern (great rainshower). The view from the harbor-side rooms is spectacular. The lobby is inviting, trendy hip with candles and pools. But if you want services, this is not a place to stay. No phones, no room service, no wine in the minibar. No pool. 10 minutes walk to downtown but a beautiful and quiet location.

I booked this hotel (meant to be 5 Star) for my son and his wife on their honeymoon night which was last Saturday 12th November. They were very disapointed in the hotel and lack of facilities. No room service, no ash trays (they had a smoking room). basically no service at all. The pool wasn't working. This was meant to be a luxury room with a atrium view. I am really annoyed and would like some compensation bac. Cheers Jude Thomas 021 486483.

The hotel was not completed. Coffeeshop and restaurant were not completed and several areas were still fenced off. The hotel has a nice location and good ambience. However some things do not work well. The staff asked if I wanted a newspaper in the morning, I answered yes, but never go one. Valet parking is very expensive at NZD 35 a night. The rooms have no telephone, which is very inconvenient for business traveller as not everyone has a NZ phone and roaming charges are high in NZ. My Accor club card was ignored by the staff and no discounts given for breakfast. I would go back, but only once the hotel is completed. For the moment the value for money is not good enough.

I was in town for the Auckland Marathon. The staff were wonderful. They let me check out after noon. The concierge's recommendations were spot on. The room is one of the most comfortable and best located rooms I have stayed in: large bed that was more comfortable than my home bed; ample space; small balcony; separate bath and shower; and the shower had both a regular, high pressure head as well as a rain shower. The location is right on the waterfront, and everything I needed was within a 10 minute walk. Highly recommended.
