Had a great time, was impressed with the service and accommodation. Only thing I can fault is that it felt under staffed. Was expecting to be met by a bell staff on arrival to take my bags from the car, maybe this is due to covid? Club lounge felt a little understaffed as well, had to wait more than 5 minutes to order afternoon tea. Evening service was better and enjoyed the complimentary drinks, staff were professional. Concierge was a little standoffish when I asked a question about the club lounge and she told me to ask front desk, however she may have been busy because of small number of staff. Bose speaker didn't work on check in but a male staff member came up and fixed it and was friendly. Staff member that checked me in was very helpful and professional, always happy to assist even busy, an asset to your hotel and exactly what I expect from a sofitel. I will stay again next time im in Wellington and ive already recommended it to friends.

Tumatauenga74 Business - 13/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

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.

Thoroughly well looked after

We have just returned from a magnificent stay at Sofitel Wellington and we would thoroughly recommend this hotel above all others. We were very impressed with all of the staff we dealt with as they went out of their way to make our stay so enjoyable. We dined twice in their restaurant and the food was superb. Thank you Sofitel Wellington we will definitely be returning.

Jan Families - 10/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The staff were wonderful. The room had a great view and was lovely and quiet and very clean. The single beds were narrow and not king singles as at the Novotel and the room service food was inedible. The hotel menu is inflexible and does not cater for allergies.

Very comfortable and restful sleep.

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.

Hal J. Couples - 09/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We enjoyed spending our 16 anniversary at the hotel. Staff was most gracious and welcoming. Couple little things -- Sofitel wifi ALWAYS overshadowed by neighboring Bolton Hotel wifi...made connecting difficult. Bose was not plugged in - took awhile to realize why is was not working. ALL else just fine.
