Accor and Sofitel franchise is a huge group and with that we expected a reasonable standard of service in keeping with the price. I'm approx half way through this trip and was astonished to be told the hotel bar closed at 11pm on Friday night, even though it hasn't closed until later during the other week days.

Great room overlooking the Marina and with a view of the Skytower. Staff very helpful and provided great service.

I had the Marina View room which overlooked the harbour/marina as well as giving myself a perfect view of Auckland City's SkyTower. Amazing decor, most beautiful at night! And the... More
