Just in a superior room as I was out each night. The breakfast downstairs was very good, and the bar in the evening also most enjoyable. Fitness centre also very serviceable - it... More

This was indeed a very luxurious stay. The hotel entrance and main public areas are furnished to the same high level that is matched in the rooms. Everything is very carefully thought out and the final result shows. The room we had looked over the internal waterway and was very pleasant. Bed extremely comfortable. We felt very pampered. Breakfast was... More

Having stayed with a sick child, we experienced every cuisine the hotel had to offer from room service to the restaurants. For the price you pay, it wasn't what I expected. Having said that, the service was nothing short of phenomenal. Location was brilliant and the rooms were really well appointed. Would happily stay again, but venture out of your... More

This a very comfortable and well positioned hotel which is quiet, has helpful staff and is well priced for its standard. We were very pleased with all aspects of the place and would have no hesitation in returning. If you want quality accommodation which is close to the action then this is the place.

The Sofitel is a gorgeous hotel, very modern and clean. The common areas are decorated beautifully. Loved the little cafe where you could take your morning coffee and sit outside along the marina. The Bell staff were very helpful in arranging transportation and attending to any requests. The only problem I had was that there is major construction going on... More

Our first visit to a Sofitel, what a beautiful Hotel, immaculately presented inside and matched by well spoken, efficient and friendly staff We stayed in a Superior Studio Room which did overlook a partial building site and bus depot but this did not detract from the widespread views, we were on the 6th (Top) Floor and it was very quiet...
