I actually like Hotel Sonne and I'm disappointed that the review I have of my trip in March 2013 is not as good as the one I wrote previously.
The hotel was busy when we went and there were no spare rooms. We had a late addition to our group and he was accommodated in our twin room on a sofa bed. I have no problem with that, as the original booking was for two people and a third came later when they were fully booked. What was a bit annoying though is that the room was still set up for two people, with just two towels, glasses etc, despite the fact that our friend was paying the same price as we were. I had hoped that we might be given a larger room since there were 3 of us sharing but we weren't - but as mentioned above the hotel was busy.
The room itself was of a good standard and would be ideal for two people.
The food this year was a mixture of ordinary and sensational. Some meals were really very good indeed and then the following evening we left disappointed that the food was quite poor. I got the impression generally that as the hotel has spent millions on refurbishment over the last few years, they were cutting costs in some places. I was also quite shocked at the cost of wines in the hotel. Previously I have found them to be on a par with restaurant prices but this year I felt we had to pay very high prices for quite ordinary wines.
I should say that the stay was still very enjoyable and the staff in the hotel were excellent. I just felt that we were being asked to pay more for less this time round.
