. There is something missing from this place that most hotels seem to have.The sense of urgency,and being rushed.Yes in theory this is part of a worldwide chain of hotels but you get the impression its a boutique hotel.From the moment you arrive on the forecourt to the moment you check out you get the feeling of being relaxed.
That doesn't mean the service is slow far from it prompt and genuinely freindly service from ALL of the staff.
The room was just lovely with a full sized deep bath and big soft bed. It feels luxurious and new even though the hotel is a few years old now.
We had dinner inhouse and were really happy-Seperate review done of the inhouse dining.
Now breakfast was something truely extrodinary.the selection was fantastic and everything was fresh and tasty. the extra touch was one staff member bringing my wife a little box of sofatel chocolates to celebrate mothers day.
I can honestly say I feel this is the very best hotel we have stayed at in auckland.
