Sofitel Wellington has to be my favourite place to stay in New Zealand. The accommodation is superb but honestly it is the staff that make this my #1 place to go. From the moment you arrive until the time you leave you are treated as a VIP.

Hotel's Favourite
We have just moved to stay at the Sofitel following the temporary closure of the Grand Mercure and we have been welcomed as if we were family and we seriously can't fault anything about the Sofitel - they are another very special Accor Group hotel which we love being a part of.

I booked the Sofitel through a travel agent, and when I checked in, I discovered the travel agent had mistakenly cancelled my reservation. Winin, on reception, was absolutely fantastic. She rectified everything straight away, and she was a standout staff member throughout my stay. My luxury club room was spacious and bright, with the most comfortable bed and pillows I have experienced anywhere. The food and drinks served in the evening (plus the afternoon tea) were wonderful. In the morning, I had a 5-star breakfast in the restaurant. Everything about my stay was perfect, but what really makes the Sofitel Wellington stand out are the staff. Everyone is super friendly and helpful, and they went out of their way to ensure I had the best possible stay. I can’t wait to return :)

Fabulous hotel with a superb restaurant. I was lucky enough to be in the prestige suite which has a wonderful bathroom with a soaking tub/bath. The room is large with separate lounge / bedroom / balcony with good views of wellington harbour. Staff are friendly, professional and welcoming.

We were delighted to be welcomed back like old friends after about a month away. The staff were all familiar and they remembered us by name - a very special feeling. The hotel was in sparkling form after a super spring clean over lockdown.
