I recently stayed at this property for the first time.
First impressions where excellent, the staff all very friendly and approachable and the lobby has a very contemporary feel if a little on the small and crowded side and lacking seating.
I was very impressed with the bedroom. Very spacious for a standard double with probably the most comfortable bed Iv experienced in a Sofitel or similar brand. The TV had plenty of channels and the bathroom was also enormous with a separate shower facility beside the bath. My only real gripe with the room however was the lack of power sockets near the bed. The only one I could find was behind the headboard of the bed and to use it meant nearly shaving a layer of skin off your hand (eh, lawsuit Mr Sofitel lol) unless you can manage to pull the bed out.
I ordered wings from room service and found them very generous however the price was crazy.
The gym was very well appointed however it was tightly packed in there. With just 2 other people using the facilities I found we where falling over one another.
The location is also fantastic at this hotel with good quality shops and restaurants all within a casual walk from the lobby.
All in all I very much enjoyed this hotel and look forward to returning!
