A fantastic place to stay in the middle of the Hunter Valley. The apartment we had was quite a way from the main centre but this is only a minor issue. The apartment was just as described, clean and functional. First floor, overlooking the great vistas of the valley and in the morning had many 'Roos' ...
Loved this hotel. Loved the room. Loved the location. Close to Darling Harbour etc. Would highly recommend and would stay here again.
We stayed in a very spacious 2 bedroom unit that seems to have been recently updated. The hotel is very convenient to the bus, light rail and train lines and was easy access to many of the sightseeing spots.
The hotel is superb, luxurious in every way, our room was superb, the view from the room was wonderful, the staff were excellent, helpful, informative, and very welcoming. We could not fault it in any way, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay there, and would highly recommend the Sofitel.
